Mrs. O Wears Rachel Roy at State of the Union Address

So glad First Lady Michelle Obama axed last week's flippy hair in favor of her shoulder length classic bob at last night's State of the Union Address. That flip - albeit a fluffier version - reminded me too much of Condoleezza Rice's hair. I can't stand that look. Okay, I"m over it now.

But I write this blog to tell you that that beautiful silver, silk shift, Mrs. Obama wore was last night was courtesy of New York Fashion Week designer, Rachel Roy. Do we have any readers who are Roy fans? But what even impressed me more were Mrs. Obama's stacked silver bangles. Nice touch, Mrs. O! We've must have said this a million times, but it's so nice to have a woman in the White House that's not afraid of fashion.

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.
