Does “protest fashion” matter? On March 2017, Glamour Magazine released an article focusing on how fashion has become a dominant tool for women to voice their rights. Also, Leigh Nordstrom for WWD published how “Whether for Party or Protest, Fashion is Heading to Washington”. Given this hot topic, we’ve invited “The DemoCats” – the female members of DC University college democrat clubs – to perform a debate which we'll be streaming live.

Fresh rose petals covered the floor. His golden, moist hand poured another glass of wine, and the phone slipped from her hand onto the sofa. He leaned in gently, and whispered, "would you like to have a meltdown with me?" She only ever had one kind of meltdown before, ripping her hair out and sobbin...

Sometimes, when you're so tired from a long and busy week, it can be hard to get excited for the weekend. But with nail art, it's A LOT easier. We all know that one of the best ways to unwind can be with a relaxing mani-pedi... but flashy colors and empowering shapes can take it to a whole other level.
At Varnish Lane, co-founders and mother-daughter duo Carrie and Lauren Dunne set out to provide a nail salon that was safe, relaxing, and convenient, something they hadn't been able to find before. Tomorrow night, they'll be hosting a nail art workshop to get your cuticles in the mood for fall.
All of their services are completely waterless, reducing the risk of waterborne illnesses. Instead of water, your hands and feet are cleansed in an all natural oil cleanser and then wrapped in a warm towel to soften the skin.
The environment and #treatyourself? Sounds like a great way to #bewashingtoniandresscapitally

Sorry, #CasualFriday, our world leaders need a little more than jeans to get the job done. Armor may be a bit too much, but a good suit is just right. Happy #InternationalSuitUpDay to the dignitaries, diplomats, First Ladies and all the #girlbosses showing us how it's done. #SuitUp.
Here at #CapitallyDC we believe every day should honor girls and women but today we take a moment to celebrate the advances we’ve made in 2017 for #InternationalDayoftheGirl.
Organizations that help women and girls succeed in their personal and professional lives will always be #squadgoals, but our DC-based #ladybosses and #sheroes deserve strong applause.
We believe that all women are beautiful from the inside out, which is why we work with all natural beauty suppliers and never Photoshop our images.
From STEM advocacy programs, to #girlpower groups, to fulfilling women’s and girl’s everyday needs, these organizations exemplify what it means to #bewashingtoniandresscapitally and choose collaboration over competition.

Our #wcw this week goes out to Gabby Klingman the owner of Lynn Louisa, a boutique in Georgetown that always makes us feel sexy (no matter how crazy the workweek).
Klingman opened Lynn Louisa back in 2014 after moving from Seattle to D.C. Each shelf is stocked with fanciful, edgy items that we couldn't find anywhere in the city. Klingman not only has an eye for identifying upcoming brands, she personally styles shopper to update "working girl" to "it girl".
It's no wonder Lynn Louisa's fanbase is so strong. Our #CapitallyDC team depends on her to get a seriously caffeinated fashion fix!
#ShoeDayTuesday Our D.C. "foremothers" always matched their handbags to their shoes, but here at #CapitallyDC we turn rules on their heads. We rely on Carolyn Misterek because her Matine bags are the perfect balance of edgy and smart. Her fine leather goods are made and sold in Washington (you can even buy them down the block from our 14th St offices)!
Matine's modern, clean, and minimalist pieces are artistic enough for the weekend and sleek enough for work. Misterek uses all natural cow leather hides, so there is an added level of character that you don't always get from #fastfashion. Washingtonian women want to stand out, we don't like to be like everyone else -- and since everything #Matine is handmade, no two products are alike.
We admire this #girlboss for her dedication and craftsmanship. Since 2012, her home sewing machine has stitched together a whole new Washingtonian style. Over the years, her company has grown tremendously, selling in stores all over the world, and opening pop-up shops throughout the district. Check out her new fall season now: https://matinestudio.com/shop
No one understands stress more than D.C. working women. Joanna Ahdoot Andreae would know. All the heavy hitters and top Washington #ladybosses are her Wandering Wellness clients.
Andreae's journey began in the corporate culture. She entered the grind, day in and day out, but struggled to make time for personal wellness. After years of study and a plentitude of certifications, she transitioned to offering consultation and wellness sessions tailored to whatever you need to feel your very best.
Our team at #CapitallyDC knows how rare it is to find one-on-one attention from such a knowledgeable and spiritual teacher. Our fitness and wellness articles seek to support young professional women in depth because we know our readers value maintaining a well-balanced life. This week, she is pursuing extensive #kundalini training in New York, so check in now to find availability next week in one of her cozy and intentional group workshops!
Sunday should be a day of rest, relaxation, and recuperation. But beating the Sunday Scaries can be hard to do. That's where Take Care Shop comes in. In addition to offering a wide variety of all natural, vegan skin care products, Take Care and owner Becky Waddell provide you with the resources to create your own spa like experience in your own home.
Besides offering some of the best skin care products around, Take Care partners with handmade, women-owned clothing, home care, and accessories lines, focused on simple and natural designs.
Take Care doesn't just take care of you, it takes care of the community, donating 5% of all net profits to organizations throughout D.C. dedicated to making an impact on the city.
Becky's commitment to only selling all natural products is admirable, but not nearly as impressive as her ability to run her own store and be a new mom at the same time. Becky is mom to an adorable baby girl (who is frequently in store with her mama!) #inspired
Here at Capitally, we love working with #empoweredwomen and its our privilege to highlight all of their amazing accomplishments. Suzie, the owner of Dalton Brody (that's her in the middle!), is a former military service member, mother of two, entrepreneur, and someone who quietly exemplifies everyday what it means to be a #girlboss.
Dalton Brody has been one of D.C.'s premier gift shops since 1987. From unique selections of jewelry to valuable antiques you can't buy elsewhere, the team of personal shoppers (a free service!) can find a gift for any occasion. Their personal events fit any age group and even bring people together from across political aisles.
This Saturday September 30th, from 10am-1pm, Dalton Brody will be hosting award winning silhouette artist and children's author, Clay Rice.http://ow.ly/qCEK30fwlgl
From yellow-brick roads to the cobblestone streets of Georgetown, gingham is a win. It's Julien's playfulness gives us even more reason to transition the (traditionally summertime) print into fall. Keep your eye out for the least "picnic table" options like magenta, teal and even eggplant. http://ow.ly/UJHx30fiXvg
Who doesn't love breaking the rules every now and then? Wearing white after Labor Day can keep those summer vibes goin' strong. Suffragettes used white to petition for more rights, so why shouldn't you keep some crisp fall options in your closet? Thanks to Cobalt Chronicles for showing us how it's done👌🏽 http://ow.ly/8Bo330fiKMX
