Sarah Palin Arrives in Philadelphia Suited Up

Sarah Palin arrived at Philadelphia International Airport yesterday wearing a smart belted grey jacket and tailored black trousers with spicy black pumps. Classically appropriate! The bespectaled vice-presidential candidate won't make any campaign appearances, her spokesman Paul Lindsay said, until the economic crisis is solved. (At this rate, that may be never.) It appears that Palin will also prepare for her vice-presidential debate with Joe Biden here, as well. (That might be a good idea after Palin's interview this week with Katie Couric.) The debate is scheduled for next Thursday. The Inquirer reported today that according to several Republican sources, Palin was scheduled to attend a debate watching party with McCain campaign volunteers at the Irish Pub on Walnut near 20th Street. Think Palin will let her hair down at the pub?

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.
