Happy Inauguration Day!



Tomorrow is the exciting, historic inauguration of our 44th President, Barack Obama! I can't wait to hear the much anticipated speech and also, as a woman, I can't help but join the fashion world's buzz about what our "Commander in Sheath" and new First Lady and her beautiful daughters will be wearing. Everything this woman picks has been flying off the shelves since she was seen on the View wearing this black and white dress:

According to MSNBC, Mrs. Obama still doesn't know what she's going to wear. Understandably, she's been pretty busy relocating her family and getting her girls situated! I don't blame her - I'd probably change my mind a hundred times the day of. Here are a few of the sketches some top designers submitted:


I like this one by Peter Som because it's white and reminiscent of the gown Jackie Kennedy designed for JFK's inauguration. This colorful sketch by Isaac Mizrahi just seems fun and bold like many of the other colorful dresses Michelle has worn.


Another white one, by Diane Von Furstenburg



This one is just so glam and glitzy, you gotta love it! By Badgley Mischka




So you may not be going to the ball, but in the spirit of inauguration day, Ooh La La Mama suggests these for your proud little American...

Wow, I hadn't seen those sketches before, they are all great! I wonder what she will end up wearing...she can pull off so many different looks.

Those sketches are really neat. I caught glimpses of what they were wearing, and I thought the little girls were so cute in their coats and scarves.

I love those sketches, too bad she didn't chose one of them, I wasn't too keen on her ball dress. Okay, I thought it was ugly... I'm bad.

I thought she looked great! The lower half could maybe have been somewhat more fitted but it looked so nice on her shoulders and upper body. She's such a pretty lady.

She, Michelle Obama, is a fashion setter but so have many other women been in our political history. I enjoyed seeing what Lady Di was wearing. Maybe I am a bit different in that I don't copy trends not that I wouldn't like to. I enjoy seeing what others are choosing to wear to make their statement. However, economy dictates my wardrobe more than fashion trends. I am primarily a JCPenney's girl. I ahve made several referrals to your baby threads because I really like the unique aspect of your children's clothing line. Keep up the good work and I'll keep making referrals. :)
