I love the First Lady’s gloves and shoes

Yesterday History was made. And even though I could have braved the cold and ventured downtown to the Capital Buiding on Metro, I did not. I chose to have the best seat in the house: I watched the Inauguration on TV.

There is enough written and there will be plenty more written about wonderful moments and the meaning of The Inauguration, like the moment I welled up with tears when I saw 2 old African-American men in the crowd wearing Tuskegee Airmen caps.

So let’s concentrate on something important here *wink*.

I LOVED Michelle Obama’s choice of green J.Crew gloves and green Jimmy Choo shoes to wear with her outfit yesterday. It was kind of a bold choice… and it worked! And not only do I love that it worked, I love that she went with J. Crew- fashionable, yet practical, and Jimmy Choo- designer… and that they were not a set.

She’s workin’ it, but not ‘above-it-all’.

And J. Crew is loving life right now: not only did they design the girls’ jackets and outfits, I just went to their site and I could not click through to their gloves section… I got an apology that you can’t access it right now; I’m guessing their gloves, which on all on sale right now too, section has temporarily crashed due to gazillions of hits to buy leather gloves… preferably green :)

  2. I love even more that I already own (and wear daily) green leather gloves. Only mine were $18 and came from Target two years ago 😉

  6. I was thinking the same thing. I love the clashing/dashing look!

  8. I loved her outfit — it was everything it needed to be.

    They (commentators) kept saying “how is she not cold?” … um, she’s from CHICAGO, 32 degrees is not cold to someone from Chicago. Just sayin’.

Tell me what you're thinking...
