Over 11 hours standing – no sitting, no leaning, no breaks. Wow! Thank you, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis.
This past Monday, Senator Davis successfully filibustered a Texas measure that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and essentially led to the closure of most abortion clinics in the state.
I’m always interested in what one sports in situations such as this, where a professional presentation is important but comfort is crucial. Senator Davis chose a sheath floral-print dress by Erdem topped with a sleek light-weight coat (apparently she wore a back brace under the coat). Key were the shoes – the Wave Rider 16 running shoe by Mizuno, in pink. A pairing that said, I’m here to do a job. Accessories included a double strand of white beads or pearls and a something on her coat. I can’t quite tell what it is, perhaps a brooch or a badge but whatever, it’s a nice pop of color.
In her simple tailored ensemble Senator Davis has made the point, however unintentionally, that dressing well is imperative when engaged in very serious matters.
All the way around, a job well done.
