Truth be told, red is my favorite color for everything except party affiliation. The First Lady broke tide in a STUNNING Jason Wu red halter gown for the Inaugural gown first dance, and maybe, just maybe, that can be a sign of getting us all together. Far from the more girly white Jason Wu frock from 2009, this red draped chiffon and velvet number was sexy in the most powerful and in control nuance that a grown woman should master. Add […]
I’ll Have What She’s Having : A mellow hued watercolor floral print that although vintage inspired, looks fresh and age appropriate on First Lady Michelle Obama. A rich print on a classic 60’s inspired princess coat could have gone all wrong on someone Michelle Obama’s age, as it could have aged her beyond her years if it weren’t for some modern updates and a slightly more relaxed silhouette that took away the Jackie Kennedy edge from her ensemble. Stylist […]
I’ll Have What She’s Having : Sophisticated & pretty pastel shades oozing with daytime elegance. Pastels can be tricky to pull off if you want to look more refined rather than youthful. Even with the best intentions, a grown-up woman can instantly look like a cast off from the sherbet scooper. Last week First Lady Michelle Obama made a case for daytime elegance in an easy to pull-off, well styled look that exudes a certain finesse at pairing subtly distinct separates. SHOP: Accessories […]

Michelle Obama Style Alert- It's back to Clean Chic With Vibrant Skirt and Simple Tank. I'll Have What She's Having: Easy, breezy late summer style. When I first saw this photo of the First Lady this week, I was loving the simple clean chic style that best flatters Michelle Obama's strong and statuesque frame. there have been a few missteps in outfits that were a bit to fussy or girly for her, but this Suno skirt and tank s A+!

One for the Brits, but the First Lady makes up for it later! Sorry folks, but I have to give this one to the other team. I’m afraid to say that Mrs. Obama’s dainty print, retro full skirt Barbara Tfank dress reminds me of another First Lady, Mamie Eisenhower, and, in my opinion, is not flattering to this First Lady’s statuesque frame. But then there’s the clean chic style that Michelle Obama hallmarked, this time worn by Kate Middleton. After […]
The annual White House Easter Egg Roll is a family must for the little ones! I received a pr head’s up about the 1950′s inspired yellow floral Tracy Reese dress that First Lady Michelle Obama wore at yesterday’s White House Easter Egg Roll. It got me thinking about our family trips to Washington, D.C. and our time at the annual event on the Great Lawn of the White House. For our time at the White House Easter Egg Roll, Bill […]
