Republicans are red, Democrats are blue…You get it? Like roses are red, violets are blue? Except I’m using political affiliations and I’m wearing both colors. Oh, I just crack myself up. But anyway, I just had the most awesome start to my week!
Monday, my friend Casey and I went out to NoMa to shoot a style post. A fellow blogger recently spilled the details on the cool neighborhood and I wanted to shoot at a specific mural so bad! We couldn’t find it anywhere so we shot at a cool, steel garage thingy just in case.
Finally, as we were leaving, we spotted it! I never say “eureka” but it was the perfect moment for it lol. We took the photos and we were off.
I wore this outfit again (no one would notice teehee) last night. I had the opportunity to cover Emily’s List 30th Anniversary Gala with PBS. I had the official press pass and everythang.
And guess what?! I got to hear and see Hillary Clinton in the flesh!!! Like, omg.
Other speakers included America Ferrera (of Ugly Betty), Uzo Aduba of Orange is the New Black, Nancy Pelosi, Gabrielle Giffords (look up her story!), Lena Dunham and many other inspiring women.
It’s like I could feel electricity bouncing off of everyone in the room. These people have done amazing things and honestly, it was just plain awesome! I can’t explain it because I was trying to take it all in then and there and I’m still trying to do so now – and I’m not even there anymore! Haha. It’s just…I was in awe and so humbled to be there.
Red, blue. Blue, red. I don’t have to be a Democrat to be a supporter of women.
P.S: Keep scrolling for outfit details and a special surprise!
