To quote an MSNBC commentator, three of the Obamas wore blue in the White House Blue Room during the first of two Inaugural ceremonies Sunday afternoon. Michelle Obama was stunning in a blue sheath by Reed Krakoff that she paired with a matching cardigan. Krakoff is the former head designer of Coach.

To quote an MSNBC commentator, three of the Obamas wore blue in the White House Blue Room during the first of two Inaugural ceremonies Sunday afternoon. Michelle Obama was stunning in a blue sheath by Reed Krakoff that she paired with a matching cardigan. Krakoff is the former head designer of Coach. 

Malia rocked what looked like a royal blue jumper, or dress, with sharply contrasting black sleeves - a signature look of the eldest first daughter. And of course. young Sasha stood out in her pink printed A-line dress with the fitted bodice that she pulled together with a wide belt, much like her mom would.

We fashionistas can't wait until tomorrow. And at the end of the ceremony, Obama, whispered, "I did it," Yes, he did do it, in perfect style.

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.
