White House Mishaps July 13, 2010

I got this comment a while back and just now really noticed it…

From Miss M:

Well,

First, I do not think First Lady Obama has any fashion sense…fashion mishaps, yes! Her clothes are for 20 year olds not a 45 year old mother of 2. Where are the pantyhose? She is no longer dressing for herself but representing the United States of America to the world. That hideous green dress was awful with the forest green Jimmy Choos and the JCrew gloves. Three greens don’t make it right.

And no, she will never be a Jackie O or in her league. Jackie O had style and class….Michelle lacks both. The white inaugural gown was awful……again, appropriate for a 20 year old not a 45 year old. She can be stylish and classic but so far……she is receiving a failing grade. Let’s hope someone step in and intervene soon or the world will be laughing at the First Lady!

My response.   Ladies and gentlemen please hold your applause until the end!!

There may be a lot of mishaps happening at the White House but it’s certainly not fashion related. Pantyhose?? Really??? No…no…no…no pantyhose allowed unless it is freezing cold and you’re wearing pumps or boots. Fashion is no longer what it used to be. The rules our mothers lived by no longer apply. I think it’s very refreshing to see women/mothers trying to dress like they still give a crap about what the men in their life think…more importantly what THEY think about themselves. GONE are the days of frumpy mom who always smells like baby lotion! GONE I say!! Mom’s today are more FABULOUS than ever before! Give me a mom in skinny jeans chunky boots and loads of bracelets with a dash of the newest Juicy Couture perfume!! Since when can Michelle Obama NOT dress for herself??? That’s absurd. If she’s not being herself then she’s not representing America because that’s who WE THE PEOPLE are. We are individuals, with different styles and quirks. Our individuality is what sets us apart and I think she represents us well…fashionably speaking! My ears are perked up but I hear no laughing yet Miss M.

So I have this FABULOUS brown/tan fuzzy, soft warm hat that has little dark brown beads all over it!  It’s so awesome!  BUT…I want a black one JUST LIKE IT and I CAN’T FIND IT!!  ARG!!!  I love throwing the little hat on though…it keeps my head warm.  AND…If I don’t feel like fixing my hair all I have to do is throw it on.  It’s great.  So go buy a hat!  REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!

 

Fabulous Fashion Advice: CMA’s and other oddities November 14, 2008

First of all let me explain the “oddities” part of my post…I am sitting on the couch watching football with my husband who also happens to be deep sea fishing on his IPhone.  He keeps using every bit of his might to throw his “fishing line” way out into the water but looks like he is trying to throw his phone at the TV.  HAlarious!  Anyway, we were watching the CMA (Country Music Association) Award show last night and I thought everyone looked pretty great with one very obvious exception…Martina McBride during her performance.  She was wearing some kind of hideous leatherish pants with boots that looked like they came out of Gene Simmons closet and some awful black top.  She looked like she was TRYING to look as if she were 23…well…she’s NOT!  The pants were NOT flattering AT all…her butt looked as flat as a pancake.  So here’s my FFA for the day…dress your age.  I mean look at Nicole Kidman.  She looked FANTASTIC…and that was just recently POST BABY!!  Are you kidding??  She’s looked amazing!  I think that it’s important to age gracefully and that does not include wearing…when you are over 45…leather pants.  I mean get real!  I just think it would be nice for everyone to remember when you go shopping that it’s ok to be stylish and push the envelope but if you THINK it might be pushing it too much…chances are it is.  It never hurts to ask not only the sales person but all some of the other shoppers.  I know this is going to sound odd but if you can find a man ask him.  Just make sure A. that his wife/girlfriend (if he has one) doens’t mind and B. that you don’t come across as hitting on him.  I promise you though, you can’t beat a man’s opinion!  Just keep your age in mind and I think a good rule to remember is to ask yourself “Would Jackie O, Marilyn Monroe, Coco Chanel or Princess Dianna wear this?”.  If the answer is no, put it back on the rack.  Seriously!  REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!

 

Fabulous Fashion Advice: I have the “I don’t want tos” November 12, 2008

Does anyone other than me every get the “I don’t want tos”?  For those of you who don’t know what that means…it means that you wake up in the morning and you just don’t feel like doing ANYTHING!  That’s how I feel this morning.  I live downtown Franklin, it’s a very very historic area, it feels like I’m in a Norman Rockwell painting.  Anyway, I went outside and it’s just a really sleepy day.  It’s overcast and I just don’t want to do anything but sit on the couch and watch Home Alone.  Having the “I don’t want tos” suck!  BUT…while I was sitting here in my chair watching tv I saw Annie Leibovitz (she’s photographed some of the most famous people on earth…Queen Elizabeth, The Rolling Stones, Miley Cyrus, John Lennon, etc…) on the Today show.  She was speaking about her new book: Annie Leibovitz At Work.  I’m thinking I might need this book.  It showcases some of her most famous photos and then tells the story behind the photo shoot.  I have a feeling this could be really interesting.  Anyway, as I was watching her I realized that she doesn’t really look like she “has it together”.  You know what I mean?  She is the extremely successful photographer but her appearance on the show made her look like she had just come off the street.  I mean I get the whole “I have a creative personality” thing but come on!…get it together.  Her hair was all stringy, her makeup looked like it was 2 days old and she wore something so blah I can’t even remember what it looked like.  Now…I’ve never been on the Today Show but I would think that this would be something that you would want to put forth some effort to look good for?!  IF people even know who she is…unless you are in the fashion world you may not know her…I can promise you that they turned on the Today Show, saw her, and decided to go get some cereal while “the chick who takes pics for that magazine” was babbling about her pictures.  I think that’s sad.  What can you expect though…I mean my goodness, she looked HORRIBLE!  People really should take pride in themselves.  That goes to show you that it’s not MONEY that makes a person Fabulous because I can promise you she has butt loads of money.  So my advice to you…even when you have the “I don’t want tos” at least put forth some effort.  You may not be going on the Today show but the world is your stage and you HAVE to look FABULOUS!  SO…take the time and make yourself look and feel great!!  Don’t be “what’s her name that always has the stringy hair”!  Remember…BE FABULOUS!!!!!!!!

 

Fabulous Fashion Advice: I’m back! November 11, 2008

SO…I’m back!  I guess you could say I took an extended holiday.  It’s amazing how lazy I got after I got married…42 days and counting!!!  I am finally getting my butt back to work.  You know every year around this time I HAVE to watch You’ve Got Mail!!  I HAVE to…it’s not Fall until I do.  So I am sitting here typing to you and watching “You’ve Got Mail”.  In the movie Tom Hanks girlfriend, played by the fabulous Parker Posey, is this hugh strung coffee addict who couldn’t slow down if she had to.  He says “You make coffee nervous!”.  Do you know people like that?  I do.  Did you know that I read on AOL that there is a study that says in some women there is a gene that when you drink coffee…it makes your boobs smaller.  CAN YOU IMAGINE?  Wow!!!  I think I read it and got paranoid so I stopped drinking coffee….waited a few days…nope….boobs were the same size.  Guess I don’t have the gene.  I always remember sitting at the breakfast table with my grandparents and I’d ask for a cup of coffee and they would say…”No, it will stunt your growth.”…perhaps there is some truth to that.  My question is…if it effects women’s boobs…what does it do to men?  Just tossing that question out into the void.  Ok…now that I got that out of my system.  I am having a moment of obsession.  I LOVE SWEATERS!!!  I really do!!  They comfort me.  I am ALWAYS cold, my husband insists on keeping it a chilly 72 degrees in the house…in WINTER!!!!  UGH!  I would keep it on 80 all year long!!  I freeze all the time!  So I decided that I needed sweaters!  Wouldn’t you know, I found some of THE best sweaters at this little store called Forever 21.  PS…their new logo is XXI Forever.  Anyway, they are incredible.  I bought this 3/4 sleeve chunky brown sweater that ties in the front, and this plum/eggplant long sleeve sweater to wear under it.  It’s awesome.  Then I also found this navy blue sweater that has really big buttons and ties at the bottom.  They are really comfortable but they look fabulous!  THEN…I went to Target and found this GREAT black sweater with like a bronzy/gold zipper and it zips at an angle all the way up.  It’s WAY fabulous!  So if you are looking for sweaters check out Forever 21 and Target.  Remember…BE FABULOUS!!!

 

Fabulous Fashion Advice: Planning a wedding is HARD WORK! July 28, 2008

SO…I had no idea planning a wedding would be this hard!!!  I knew it would be work but man…this is tough.  We already have over 900 people on the guest list!!!  Trying to have a simple, elegant ceremony with that many people…it feels like I’m trying to run a circus!  I know it will all turn out fine but I have to tell you that I’m really just ready to say “I Do”.  I’ve come to realize that while the whole fairy tail wedding thing is great…the real fairy tail part is just getting to spend the rest of your lives together!!!  I love him so much more than I thought I could or would ever love someone and just the fact of being able to wake up next to him or cook him breakfast or watch tv on the couch together…those are the thoughts that thrill me, those are the things I look most forward to…living life…together!  So…I know that isn’t fashion advice.  Here’s some for you though… Jasmine Couture….FABULOUS gowns!!  I love them!!!  I swear I’m going to look like a disco ball coming down the aisle…you know I gotta have my sparkles!!!  Hahahaha!!  No matter what kind of circus your life may be in right now…REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!
