In 2010, DC Style Is Real sprang almost fully formed from a spell of not so fun unemployment. After writing dozens of cover letters, a friend recommended writing about something I do enjoy: DC itself! Since moving to DC for graduate school, I soaked up the surprising, exciting, and hopefully free things DC had to offer.
But the stereotype of DC as a boring government town persists, so DC Style Is Real remains
to shine a light on DC’s many cultural accomplishments and delights. DC Style Is Real itself has been featured as one of DC’s best blogs by Spotted by Locals, and has been
accepted to Google’s Field Trip app.
