Change is Awesome

September 16, 2008

The wait is over.  I can now combine the two loves of my life: Fashion & Politics.  Ok, so there have been many times before where these two worlds consciously collided, but never has a campaign attracted so many designers to make such chic political duds.

Case in point, this Obama ’08 Button Tote Bag designed by Marc Jacobs. Or how about a Zac Posen tank, or even better an Alexander Wang tank top!  Oh yeah, lets not forget Diane von Furstenberg, Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam, Rachel Roy, Vera Wang, and Rag and Bone whose design [see tote] inspired the titling of this post – CHANGE IS AWESOME.

Cue Republican “elitist” comments right about….now.

A Letter to Michelle

August 29, 2008

Dear Michelle,

You looked absolutely amazing last night. I heard from WWD that you were wearing a “floral Radzimir kimono dress” from one of my favorite designers, Thakoon Panichgul . Oh, and that it was from the pre-spring 2009 collection. Sounds like you and the fashion world have a lovely relationship.

I know Barack will inspire the country to do better, but I believe you will inspire the country to dress better.

Floral Arrangement, Michelle Obama

August 27, 2008

This has been an exciting week for the democrats, as the DNC has been going well and the speeches have been right on the mark. I already had an idea of what would be said and how the crowd would cheer, so I would have to say the thing I had been looking forward to the most was listening to Michelle Obama, and seeing how fabulous she looked.

Day 3 has proven to be Michelle’s best DNC fashion moment, if you can believe that with all the lovely ensembles she has sported these past couple days. She looks absolutely stunning, and I always fall over for florals. Who made this dress – Could it be her favorite local designer Maria Pinto, who got a great write up in the New York Times last week?
