Who says bangs can't be versatile? Definitely not our first lady. 

Michelle Obama, who is batting a fashion 1000 this week with her style choices, pinned back her bob Tuesday morning. The updo was a nice compliment to the winter white Naeem Kahn coat and matching dress she wore to  the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Service at the Washington National Cathedral.  Once again, she  played with proportion again - note the three-quarter length sleeves. Lastly, we know how the first lady feels about pantyhose, but she had on a pair of flesh-toned hose with cream pumps. So we know how cold it must be in DC. Another winner. Still, it makes me wonder if Allentown native Thom Browne's edgy navy blue coat  beat out Naeem Kahn's appropriate, cream suit for Inauguration Day. 

Only FLOTUS knows for sure.

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.
