Hello, my Loverlees! Hope your 2013 is going well!
Today we celebrate not one, but two significant moments in the history of the United States: the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the 2nd inauguration of our 44th president, Barack Obama!
I am so proud of our First Family. I say OUR, because whether you voted for him or not, he is still the Commander and Chief of this great nation and no matter how you feel about the man, you should ALWAYS respect of office the man holds.
That said, on to the real reason I'm here. IMO we have the best looking First Family since the Kennedys. First Lady, Michelle Obama, is the epitome of style, grace and understated chic. While her stature could surely carry opulence and added embellishment without seeming overdone, she opts to stick to simple elegance with an added touch of Old Hollywood glamor. Today's outfit is no exception. The Thom Browne ensemble was fitting for both the occasion and the weather. The custom made navy outfit, a dress that hits just below the knee with a matching coat, drew its inspiration from a menswear silk tie pattern. Fitted through the waist, the coat flairs at the bottom and was worn at one point with a matching embellished belt. Oh, and the bangs. Love, love, love the bangs!
The first daughters epitomized their mother's glamor and grace as well with colorful, jewel toned coats and matching gloves. Color, color, color! I was so glad to see color in a sea of gray and black. Even the first mother-in-law wore what looks like a pastel peach overcoat with accent scarf.
FA'SHOE'NISTA! salutes the First Family and their sense of style on this great and memorable day! Fabuloso!
