Hillary Worked That Orange

Ask my family and they'll tell you I'm a fan of orange. That must be why I think that Hilary looked fantabulous in her beautiful, bright suit last night. She made a bold, confident fashion statement. We all know it's not easy to wear orange, still in her suit - which is being described as harvest orange - cut a really nice silhouette. I'd criticized her for looking dumpy in the past because those solid, iridescent suits made her look dumpy. But last night her look was crisp in the simply cut ensemble that reminded me of a sunset at dusk. (And I don't think it's because she's a new head coach at Oregon State...) What do you think? Do you like Hillary in orange, or like a friend of mine, did you lament over her resemblance to a pumpkin?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
