I've never been that into politics (my idea of watching the VP debates last night was catching a few minutes of them post-gym while simultaneously cooking dinner and flipping channel to baseball playoffs),and,while I really like designerCatherine Malandrino's American flag dress,I'm really not sure I can get behind such boldfaced displays of patriotism—could you?
As you may remember from her guest appearance onProject Runwaya long time ago,Malandrino is actually French,but she considers this flag dress emblematic of her breakthrough in the good old USA.This month,she's even opening a new store in Los Angeles that'll house both her expensive and cheaper (read: less expensive) lines,a library,a cafe (perfect for those of us who can't afford a dress right now,but might like a decaf),etc.
And,good news for anyone whowouldwear on a flag on your dress: You will be admitted to the polls wearing this get-up,whereas anything with a specific candidate endorsement (i.e.an Obama or McCain T-shirt) will have to cover-up or not be allowed inside.Yup,it's against the law to tout your candidate preference inside a polling place,so keep that in mind next month.
Tell me:What's the most patriotic thing you've ever worn?(And yes,Fourth of July attire does count).
