Hey readers! So I know I have not been all that great about updating the blog. I've been swamped with school work and such since this is my last year of college, so bear with me! I will be back shortly with more posts soon! Thanks for following and your support! Please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments, or ideas!
So after awaiting with much anticipation...
Michelle Obama wore a cream Jason Wu asymmetrical chiffon gown with sparkled appliques. She accessorized with diamond drop earrings, diamond bangles, and a diamond ring (or shall I say rock.) I was actually pleasantly surprised by her choice. The color of the dress suited her well and the fit was figure flattering and the jewelry complemented the gown. My only criticism was her hair. I would have preferred her hair to be up instead of down in that same stoic bob, but maybe it stayed that way because of time constraints. I was just relieved that this was not a Narcisio-like nightmare.
However, I did not care for her Inauguration ensemble designed by Cuban immigrant Isabel Toledo (she loves those south of the border styles.) It was a "lemongrass" dress with a matching embroidered coat with a blinged out broach. She wore dark green leather J.Crew gloves with darker green Jimmy Choo pumps. The color and the fit was just off and I didn't really appreciate all the different types of greens. We all know that Michelle has some hips on her, which I feel like she tries to disguise by wearing potato-sac-ish ensembles that just drown out her figure. The Jason Wu did the complete opposite since it was banded right around the waist.
I would honestly have to say that Jill Biden's gown was superb! She wore a crimson Reem Acra strapless chiffon design with a banded bustier and flowed beautifully below. She wore diamond drop earrings very similar to Mrs. O's. The dress would have looked good on the first lady too, (I actually) would have preferred to see Mrs. O in the Acra, oh well...)
The Obama girls looked absolutely adorable in their J Crew 'fits. Malia wore a royal blue pea-coat with a black scarf, tights, gloves and ballet flats, while Sasha sported a pink pea with orange scarf, pink tights, and red flats. Pink and orange is always a daring combo, but I think Sasha pulled it off.
Is it just me, or does Sash always look bored at these events? And isn't Malia the perfect combo between her mom and dad? She's got her mom's cheekbones and mouth and her father's forehead, LOL.
Looking for an alternative from those classic and comfy Ugg boots to wear during the winter season? Make a stylish and smart investment in jockey (also known as Rider) or biker style boots. The jockey boots are more simple, smooth, and sophisticated, while the biker boots have an edgy twist with straps and buckles. Both are tall, leather, and perfect for cold weather. Withstand wind, rain, and snow while looking fabulous in these!

How to wear: These boots are casual, so not too much effort needs to be put into an outfit including these shoes. They can be worn with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings; a pair of bottoms no bigger than those will be able to fit inside the boot. Jeans should definitely not be worn outside the boot; you won't be able to see the detailing that makes the shoe hot!
Where to wear: You can wear these anywhere from the classroom to a low key party, depending on the upper half of the outfit. However, don't step your well dressed foot in the club with these boots...
Where to buy: Steve Madden has a nice collection in their boot section. Tory Burch has a great selection of Jockey/Rider boots, but they are on the pricier side. Jessica Simpson has a good collection of reasonably priced Jockey and Rider boots. Buy them while you can, these trendy items are selling out fast!
I got these Tory Burch Jockeys as a little X mas gift. I wore them for the first day of classes after break. I wore it with a casual boyfriend button up that I belted and cotton leggings from Express.
