Politics is everywhere. No matter who we are or what we do for a living, we all find ourselves in situations where we need to be diplomatic and look for compromises. We also need to get past the surface and try to see someone’s true intentions, whatever image they project on the surface. Caroline, our most recent client, knows this all too well. Her fiancé works in politics and one of his nicknames for her is “First Lady”. I believe that was her inspiration when choosing this full skirted, cinched waist, lavender dress. It mimics Jackie O’s famous Oleg Cassini ensemble that she wore when visiting India in 1961. The high neckline is appropriately conservative while the centered bow along the waistline, and the candy colored hue, adds the appearance of sweetness. A demure but sophisticated white handbag with a snakeskin pattern, and simple nude pumps, finishes the look with a glossy sheen. Overall, this outfit is perfectly designed to give the impression of sincerity.
