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: Jeans! June 17, 2008

So…I told you on my last post that we would talk about jeans.  Here we go!  I used to have a TERRIBLE time finding jeans that would fit well.  My problem is that I have a J. Lo butt (which is NOT a bad thing) and a Scarlett O’Hara waist (little bitty waist).  Can I tell you how hard it is to buy jeans for someone with that figure?!  I can’t wear all those cute little jeans at Hollister, American Eagle or the Buckle…all those places that you walk in and about fall into a coma because of the smell!!  Ugh!!  That’s a whole other subject!  Anyway, so for years I would buy the hottest jeans I could find at Gap, yes Gap.  They were the only jeans that would fit me well enough to look half way decent with heels and not let my “junk” fall completely out of my “trunk”.  Then a light from Heaven came on and I was given a miracle.  Seven For All Mankind jeans!!!!!!!  I cannot begin to tell you how FABULOUS they are!  They fit like a glove.  You’re going to pay around $180-190 (unless you have an Off 5th…the Saks Fifth Ave outlet store in your area)  but it is SO worth it.  Jeans are definitely something you need to invest in.  When you put Sevens on, you know instantly that you are wearing a luxury item.  The feel of the denim is so soft you’ll think you are wearing silk.  They are beyond comfortable even when you first put them on.  They will stretch but not enough to where they are falling off.  I hate it when people wear jeans that when they sit down you can see their butt crack…gross.  What’s even worse than that is these little girls that think wearing a thong and letting it show is cute…ugh!!  I like thongs…but they aren’t something that the whole world needs to know you are wearing.  Jeans should fit tight in the butt (but not to where it is uncomfortable) and they shouldn’t gap at your waist, like in your lower back area.  The jeans should fit close there, you shouldn’t be able to sit and see your tail, if you can, find a different pair or try a different size.  This may sound terrible but I don’t care…I usually wear my jeans 2 days in a row.  By the second day they have stretched out just enough to make your butt look fantastic.  So if I know I have a hot date the next night, I’ll wear the jeans I want to wear then the day before so they will be perfect for when I go out.  Btw…I never wear belts with my jeans.  I know they can be cute and wonderful but I don’t like them…they are just not comfortable to me.  and NEVER tuck your shirt in…period.  Unless your stomach is as flat as Victoria’s Secret supermodel Gisele…don’t tuck it in!  So…if you need some FABULOUS new jeans go to Saks Fifth Avenue or ANYWHERE that sells SEVEN FOR ALL MANKIND!!!  Remember…BE FABULOUS!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Are Staple Pieces REALLY that important? June 13, 2008

So…I know a lot of people believe that you need to have those “staple” pieces in your wardrobe, I agree with that to an extent.  Every woman needs a great pair of black pants, a black blazer, a great pump and a great boot, a little black dress, and a great bag.  If someone came into my closet and looked at everything I own, they aren’t going to find a lot of staple pieces.  I tend to buy outrageous things that very few people would dare to wear.  I would rather buy a fully Swarovski crystal studded tank than an Oscar De La Renta black blazer any day.  Here’s a sampling of the staple pieces I have in my wardrobe.  I have a great pair of Narciso Rodriguez black boots, Stuart Weitzman black pumps (I also have them in red patent leather…think “The Devil Wears Prada DVD cover!), a Guess Mariciano black blazer and skirt, and a timeless Louis Vuitton barrel bag.  You also need a GREAT pair of jeans!!  Which will be my next post…What to do about Jeans?!  Remember…BE FABULOUS!!!
