The DCFashion Fool is a DC based men’s lifestyle and fashion blog. I want to prove to guys that they do not have to be afraid of fashion. Looking and feeling great along with having fun is the key to a great life. A lot of people have this notion that Washingtonians have no sense of style and there’s nothing going on in town besides political and legal activities. I want to dispel that notion by showcasing my sense of style through my eyes through my adventures and travel.
I love men’s fashion and leading a fun filled life and I plan to talk about it every chance I get. It is my hope that my tips will inspire others to grab life and look great.
