[dc moment] inauguration 2013

Every four years this city is invaded by swarms of tourists, motorcades, & more press than we know what to do with. & for hosting this hot mess, with good behavior, we get Inaugural Balls. POTUS & White House staff, among many other DC elite, get first dibs on the legitimate soirees while the rest of us are left deciding if we love our home or adopted state enough to drop $150 on a ticket plus the cost of the perfect dress & absolute necessary accessories. While I have not yet decided what my 2013 inaugural plans entail, I have a few of those perfect dresses in mind…just in case. 

My favorite dress will be featured this morning on DC’s WUSA9 Inauguration segment. Be sure to tune in to their morning show to catch me sporting the stunner from Carine’s Bridal in Georgetown.

Below are some of my close-second favorites, any one of them will have you covered at any State Society or Unofficial Ball. & while black [my favorite color] is the overwhelming favorite here, there are a few colored options, as well :)

This is not a sponsored post. I selected exclusively RTR dresses for this post as the company offers high-end dress options at reasonable prices & I have had beyond pleasant first-hand experience with them.
