Life, nor fashion, should be faced with a confidence crutch, nor a style safety blanket. Fall is a time when the leaves change color. When trends are predicted. And when elections are decided. In a city that sees so much change, it’s a wonder that key style pieces are worn year after year, with little update. Since the beige trench coat is DC’s go-to fall item, here are 5 Unique Trench Coat Ideas. Don’t be beige in a crowd of beige. Continue reading
As the days get shorter there is a little less time for everything. Fall fashion is when day to night outfits take over – from office wear to date night outfits. And tribal print is the perfect transition into a deeper, darker feel. Continue reading
#FashionRule: #OfficeWear should have just 3 to 4 colors
DC blurs all sorts of lines. Your obsession becomes your career (politics, PR, fashion etc.) Your career becomes your social life. And your private and public image become interchangeable.

I am a first generation American who has been blessed to visit my parents’ home country of India twice in my lifetime.

Spring time in Washington, DC is about as fickle as Donald Trump’s position on abortion. While there seems to no longer be a transition from an election year to a non-election year, at least we have transition fashion. I mean, if I am going to spend a heated summer arguing about why women support candidates who are anti-women, I at least want my wardrobe to be cool and crisp. Continue reading
One of my favorite things about living in Washington, DC is the wonderful weekend getaways and day trips nearby that can fill up an entire season. In just an hour or two, one can be on a local beach, in a fox village, or in a boating town. This year I promised myself I’d seek out new destinations, new experiences, and new perspectives in the same world. Which brings us to Havre de Grace. Continue reading
Green is a color that has to be carefully curated. Best worn in a finely tailored or selected statement piece. This, my friends, is your fine line between human and leprechaun. Continue reading
