At Political Fashion By Mona Salama, my mission is to inform and connect the community on fashion and politics, especially covering both the First Lady Melania Trump and First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s Outfit of the Day and the initiatives they are working on.
In the middle of March, the world turned upside down. During the turbulent and highly uncertain times, I didn’t think it was inappropriate to continue my fashion reporting and shifted my focus to cover breaking news of President Trump’s response to the coronavirus, Congress and the 2020 presidential race.
However, after some deep thinking (as I was running errands for my mother so she doesn’t go outside whatsoever), I thought maybe it might be a good idea to return to my second love and write about fashion if and when either or ladies make an appearance. I figured it possibly could be a distraction for one to read such posts and shift focus away from the continuous live coverage of the pandemic.
I would like to hear from you and would love if you can take the time to answer this poll question below about whether or not I should cover What Melania/Ivanka Wore during this time. You have always been my guidepost, and I want to make sure I’m providing you with the content you want to read now more than ever.
Thank you for building this community with me for the past year. To everyone, please stay safe, and strong, and know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you right now.

As much as I love watching what they wear, I think it is not appropriate. Focus on what they do, like the call to the Canadian first lady. When the pandemic is over, go back to fashion.

Enjoy getting to see the Our Elegant First Lady of the White House and the Family. A comfort to see everyone is okay.

Im not at the moment on the press list for Karen Pence. Working on that so I can provide more updates. Looking to add more ladies into this series once things return back to normalcy
