***FIRST LADIES***







After my visit to Washington D.C over the past few days, I couldn't help but notice the fashion lifestyle it has to offer!  Besides the fact that it was freezing cold, I saw how conservative and polished the men and women that lived there dressed.  I stayed right by the White House at the JW Marriott on Pennsylvannia Ave overlooking the Washington monument.  Reflecting on all the history I got to absorb, I decided to take a look at First Lady Fashion!  Ever since Mary Todd Lincoln stepped into the White house in the 1800s, she could always be counted on to give the administration a sense of style and fashion. A compulsive shopper, the first lady delighted in refurnishing the presidential mansion, overspending the twenty thousand dollars Congress had allotted. She was just as lavish on herself, especially in her wardrobe and jewelry. Her dresses were designed and made to her specifications, regardless of cost.  Jacqueline Kennedy set a new standard for glamour and style while in the White House.  She is one of my personal favorites because I know if I had the place to be conservative, I would definitely try some of her looks! I love Michelle Obama's chunky jeweled accents.  I'm a sucker when it comes to accessories so I adore how she dresses up her style with the perfect accent. Oh America how I love thee! <3
