First Lady Fabulousness

There was much discussion about what Michelle Obama would wear to last night’s State Dinner. In my humble opinion, she absolutely killed it in this Naeem Khan dress:I love the fabric, the color on her is perfect, and the hair and the jewelry! I also love the way she carries herself, so much poise and confidence. I can just imagine President Obama admiring her when he saw her dressed for the evening.

Also noteworthy, President Obama is definitely doing justice to that tuxedo.

P.S. If you love Michelle as much as I do, you should totally check out this blog devoted to her and her style.

I love that I am seeing velvet pop up more and more these days. It totally reminds me of being a little girl and my mom putting me in velvet dresses for Christmas. These days, I would probably wear it a little differently (opaque white tights and patent mary janes are no longer my go-to accessories) but I love what the texture adds to an outfit. The downside to velvet is bargain hunting can be difficult, since cheap velvet looks…well, cheap. Here are a few of my favorite velvet pieces from around the net:

I am also really loving all things navy, so this clutch is just perfect. Miu Miu velvet bow clutch, $520 at net-a-porter.

Milly strapless scalloped velvet dress, currently $141.75 at the Outnet

I particularly love velvet when mixed with other textures, like in this pewter and lilac silk velvet burnout scarf, handmade by Etsy seller madlight13, $35 (a steal!)

Love these buttons! Vera Wang Lavender strapless maxi dress, $375 at the Outnet

I found this ring via Polyvore, it ended up in a bunch of my sets. I really love it. I love that it’s pretty earthy but also glamorous. The colors are really beautiful and neutral. Too bad it’s roughly $13k. Still, I like the general idea and it’s a thought for cheaper alternatives or even a custom project someday.

Friday Bag Lust

The object of this week’s Friday Bag Lust is this gorgeous Valentino Garavani medium leather bag:

I really gravitate towards this shape of bag (see last week’s Friday Bag Lust), and it looks like the perfect size. I could put a book or my massive planner in there, but not so big that it becomes ridiculous.
