In this first episode of the Red Fire Chicken lunar year, Kelly Okamura reacts to the news reported by Axios that the female White House staff dress code is "Dress like women."* 

She shared her findings from the days after the news broke, and offers advice on dressing in the year ahead that is defined as a female metal year based on ancient Chinse atrological forecasts. Here'a a link to one web resource that describes why much of 2017 is a chicken, not rooster year.

*Note on DJT -- Kelly supports an online action to not refer to Donald Trump by name to not contribute to his online popularity.

This podcast is dedicated to the memory of Mary Tyler Moore, who's style and smile inspired generations of women.
