Hi everyone! Having a passion centered around fashion and living in the world's political capital might seem contradictory. While D.C. has a number of style mavens and well-dressed icons, it is with slow-paced progression that the city has embraced the importance of fashion not just as a visual art, but as a valuable contributor to its economy. One big step towards this was the arrival of Capitol File Magazine's beautiful, brilliant editor-in-chief, Kate Bennett. A Chevy Chase native, Bennett joined the magazine right in time for its fifth anniversary, breathing fresh air into the venerable periodical's pages. I am honored that she has chosen me to share a very personal part of my life: my closet! The Spring Fashion Issue looks amazing and shows her progressive work, balancing styling tips, charity events, insider advice, interviews, political fundraisers and the city's best places to dine. Congratulations Capitol File on a fantastic issue and thanks Kate for allowing me to share a snippet of my world with readers everywhere.
