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.

 

Fabulous Fashion Advice: Get a BAG! June 19, 2008

So…Bags…you HAVE to have a collection of GREAT bags. Personally I prefer big bags. Here’s a sampling of the labels in my closet, Juicy Couture, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, D&G, Chloe’, and Guess just to name a few. Buy a statement bag, something everyone will want but will say that only you could pull off. Every bag I own has the potential to “make” an outfit…meaning that if all I had on were jeans and a cute white t shirt that I could throw that bag over my shoulder and still look like a celebrity. The smallest bag I have is a Louis Vuitton Murakami bag…I NEVER use it, I can’t fit all the junk that I have to have to stay fabulous on the go in there. But it is really cute. Now don’t mistake a FABULOUS bag with an “IT” bag. I’m not about “It” bags…you can’t trust them. I don’t want to spend 3K on a bag that in 6 month is going to be “so last season”! Not gonna do it. Now I will spend 3K on a bag that is FABULOUS and timeless but not on an “It” bag. The thing to remember about buying a great bag is how do you feel when you wear it and can you hold everything you need to in it? There is no point in having a Fabulous bag if you look like and idiot trying to cram everything you have it…and it still spills out. Instead find a bigger FABULOUS bag and go with it. Don’t be afraid…you can rock a big bag! REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!
