I can’t believe it’s been more than a year since I left the nation’s capital. I recently realized that being away from D.C. has distanced me from many things – talking politics at happy hour, my fondness of Michelle Obama and wearing navy blue suits with nude pantyhose (umm kidding, I wouldn’t be caught dead).
Well, my love for the First Lady was totally revived when cameras caught her here doing the Dougie at Alice Deal Middle School in D.C. a few months ago. OMG – LOVE. HER. Since then I’ve started following M’Obama again to see what she’ll do (and wear) next. She was seen over the weekend at a Congressional Black Caucus event looking UBER chic in a Michael Kors black sequin fishtail skirt.
There are a few things I’m loving about this look:
- The pairing with a casual, unassuming black top keeps the look from being too formal.
- She breaks up the black with a statement necklace.
- The stacked bracelets give the ensemble a contemporary feel.
- The corset belt (by Peter Soronen) cinches in M’Obama’s waist, giving her a lovely hourglass figure.
I think I just might have to try the black sequin look myself. I’ll start with one of these items:
Liu Jo cardigan, Yoox.com, $118
BCBG Harlow Sequined Envelope Bag, Lordandtaylor.com, $88
Aidan Mattox Black Sequin Dress, Bluefly.com, $120
Dear D.C., NYC is great, but I miss you.
