First Glimpse of Michelle's Inaugural Fashion

We just saw Michelle Obama get in the car on her way to St. John's Church. Maybe running about 15 minutes late. And Michelle looks sharp in what looks like a sparkly gold, brocade suit. Pencil Skirt. Long coat... Hair done. Wonderfully day time appropriate. Glitter works here. The First Family is making their way inside. Service expected to last an hour. More to come.

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.
