It’s nice to see some fashion in Baltimore!!!  Thank goodness your fashion editor actually knows what’s current and in-style.  Katie looks amazing and one day might be in The White House!!  Hopefully, she’ll she’ll keep it cool and modern and not go back to the same Lily Pulitzer style that’s rampant in Baltimore.  Especially the poodle set!!What ever happened to Style mag Bridal issue?? What Brides-to-be in Baltimore don’t like fashion???  Geez
