Pitch perfect pink

Rep. Donna Edwards chose a rosy pink color and gold jewelry for a taped message in her office about the Patient's Bill of Rights:

She got this look just right. This shade of pink makes her look healthy and vibrant, and her earrings compliment her short hairstyle well. 

"But wait!" you say. "Her dress is sleeveless! Her arms are bare!" Well, yes. But she's not on the House floor, or on a news program or being interviewed by a journalist. She's sitting in her office, having a chat about health care with her constituents, via YouTube. Not the same thing.


  1. She also has on a dress that doesn't look like something you'd wear to a cocktail party. It's sleeveless but not overly bare at the shoulder and a plain heavy fabric.

  2. She looks healthy. Very appropriate to the chat. Her arms look lean, like she takes care of herself. Not a bad non-verbal message to send, when appropriate.
