We are soldiers, military wives, mothers, students, entrepreneurs, and we are VETERANS! But we also want to look feminine after we take our uniforms off when we are at dinner, the movies, church, on our jobs or just simply hanging out with our families and loved ones. We are Veteran Fashionistas!
The Veteran Fashionista is an active duty soldier or sailor, who has previously served on active duty or she’s even a military wife! A Veteran Fashionista is Michelle Obama, Hilary Clinton, Laura Bush after all they are all wives of the current or former Commander in Chief! Jill Biden as the wife of the Vice President also qualifies and she has children who have served in the military.
