White House Mishaps July 13, 2010

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

From Miss M:


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.


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Will Smith, Seven Pounds and Fashion advice for GUYS! December 11, 2008

Hey all you Guys out there!!  I know I usually give advice to all my ladies out there BUT today Will Smith has inspired me.  Obviously he has a new movie out called “Seven Pounds” which NO ONE can figure out what it’s about.  I am determined to go see it though.  Do you notice that Will Smith (other than the Fresh Prince years) ALWAYS looks great?  I mean seriously.  Check out these examples…ABC..  Whether he is wearing a suit or just a t-shirt he always looks nice.  So here’s my word of advice to you men out there…take notes from Will.  For a more dressy night (perhaps a date) pair a nice white dress shirt with jeans and a military style or velvet jacket, great shoes and a great belt.  For lunch with the guys go with a nice Affliction t shirt and jeans with a great belt, we know you aren’t there to impress your guy friends BUT what if you met someone…it’s always good to look nice at all times…you never know who you’ll run into!  For an easy Saturday or an after the game outing try a thermal shirt under a snap button collared shirt with both sleeves rolled up, great jeans and a great belt.  Now, you do NOT have to go spend a fortune on jeans.  Go to Aeropostale and get some of their jeans.  They are great and you can ususally catch them on sale for around $25 bucks!  The best place for belts is The Buckle (appropriate right?!).  As far as shoes go…I LOVE Steve Madden and Robert Wayne.  What you need is a pair of black shoes and brown shoes.  Now, if you get the right style you’ll be able to wear them with ANYTHING.  This is very important…#1 do NOT wear black shoes with brown pants, #2 do NOT wear black shoes and a brown belt OR Brown shoes with a black belt!!!  PLEASE don’t do this…please please please!!!  So I think that’s pretty good synopsis of men’s fashion.  I hope you can walk away with some great ides!  Even though you may be a guy…REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Panty hose and open toed shoes! June 23, 2008

SO…Panty hose and open toed shoes…DO NOT GO TOGETHER!!!!  I don’t care if they are nude colored…DO NOT DO IT!!!  It looks ridiculous and anyone with any kind of fashion sense at all knows this and will…I promise…laugh at you.  The whole purpose of an open toed shoes is for people to see your legs and toes…it’s ok, you don’t have to cover them up.  The only time you need to wear panty hose is when you are wearing CLOSED toed shoes…and even then you don’t HAVE to wear them.  I prefer not to…even in winter, but I just don’t like panty hose…they are too constricting.  I prefer thigh highs, and you can get a great pair at Victoria’s Secret.  They also have great garters for keeping them up!!  Talk about sexy…I have a pair of hot pink garters…I LOVE THEM!!!  So that’s my fashion RULE for today…NO PANTY HOSE WHEN WEARING OPEN TOED SHOES!!!  REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!
