Michelle Obama's Tracy Reese dress was out of sight

Michelle Obama's Tracy Reese dress was out of sight

New York designer, Tracy Reese, knocked it out of the box when she designed this special occasion dress for Michelle Obama's killer speech at the Democratic National Convention. The dress, a spokeswoman for the company says, is a tweaked version of several Tracy Reese styles from previous seasons.

The dress - which is probably about $300 to $500- isn't available to the general public now. But that could change soon.  The spokeswoman didn't know if the dress was made especially for this event, but we are guessing it was. The jacquard red flowing into a periwinkle blue hem is a dead giveaway. This just in: shoes were by J.Crew.

Great choice. Although we do wish this dress was made in America.

For more on this dress and Ann Romney's dress, see the Philadelphia Inquirer's magazine section tomorrow, were will will look at the symbolism.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
