Did you get the memo? – Day 3, DNC in Philadelphia – 07.27.2016

Obviously a memo was sent to female DNC speakers to tell them about the white dress dresscode (kidding).   It’s summer, it’s hot and that backdrop is hard to compete with.  White was definitely the best  color choice to wear on that stage.

After months of complaining that it was too cold, the sun is out and it is downright hot in DC.  On the weekends and at night it is all I can do to put on anything fancy or that clings to my body.  I discovered Mes Demoiselles clothing, hailing from France if you didn’t catch that already, and fell in love with their flowy, lightweight, delicate and beautiful clothing.  I knew their dresses would be perfect for summer in DC.   I will admit that wearing a flowy dress when you aren’t tall isn’t always the most figure flattering choice, but you certainly can cinch the waist on a flowy dress and/or wear high heels to make it that.  The reality is a flowy dress is romantic, stylish and foremost comfortable.
