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: 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!!!
