Hillary Clinton's Bob Back to the 1990s

I think - nope, I know - I'm in the minority here.

I think - nope, I know - I'm in the minority here.

But, I like Hillary Clinton's just-above the-shoulder-length bob.

I finally got a good look at the Secretary of State's flip at Tuesday night's State of the Union Address and I like it.  I'm a  a total fan of the tiny tiny jewels on her  thin headband, too.  Bedazzled at the SOTU. Go Hillary!

Actually, I've always liked my Mrs. Clinton with longer hair. To me the shoulder-length tresses soften her face. The  shorter style didn't flatter her face.  When Clinton was  seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, she may have been right to err on the side of not-too-girly. But I'm glad she's letting her femininity shine through more now.

A few people disagreed with me last night on Twitter (ewellingtonphl) and on FB.  She looks older and less polished, they said.  She appears tired from traveling overseas too much, they cried. She's not aging gracefully. She doesn't look classy. Did you miss her pearls, people.

Hear this: I disagree, disagree, disagree.

Now if only I could find out where she got that headband from.

What do you think about Clinton's longer do?

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.
