Helping To Put Things In Context: Something You Should Know About D.C.
Everyone knows Washington, D.C. for being the nation's capital where decisions are made that affect the country itself and impacts the world at large. But between the time that politicians and special interest groups like to use the city as the reason for all that ails America, it has a more intimate side. This is the side that one could think of as the "local" aspect of the city. I think if people understood what really exists within the boundaries of this diamond shaped (minus a complete side) metropolis, their perspectives may be altered considerably. As AWashingtonWoman will continue to focus on some of the wonderful women who make up the fabric of the DMV (a term used for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and includes: the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia), we will also strive to give you a little of the backstory, as objectively as we can. So it's been a year since this all began and without really trying, this blog has exceeded what our expectations were. So we are thinking that with a little love and a lot of integrity, we can share some real true insight which can be entertaining as well as informative. Who knows?.... Maybe it will even be ..... helpful.

Response to Blog: Capitol Hill Style
Take it from "AWashingtonWoman" .... The First Lady does a fantastic job being true to her spirit, setting trends for others and looking appropriate as the wife of the President of the United States of America. If I could share one word of advice however, it would be to be careful about the various parts of your body and how different elements compliment or exaggerate. For example, she pulled off the outfit worn at The State of The Union Address but the petals and the stiff fabric was just shy of a disaster. She pulled it off but it was a close call (and I would bet it took sympathetic and creative camera shots to not show that blowing up the hips). That having been said, she is a tall and sizable woman.... so that should be taken into account. At the same time, I personally don't believe in being a complete slave to fashion. So if you feel good (and clearly she does)... Go for it!
