Hello all!!! It has indeed been a minute since I last posted. I have been working on a really big project that has really taken up all of my time. I will be able to share it with you soon!!! In addition to not blogging, my personal life looked like that of a 17th century Lutheran monk - NOT CUTE!!!!

But if there was anything or anyone that could force my hand to get all back up in throughout here, it is the FIRST LADY, MRS. MICHELLE OBAMA. The Obamas have been on their European tour and Michelle has made quite a buzz with her wardrobe. I love that Michelle has been such a staunch supporter of American fashion (Where are the black designers though? If we get a black Attorney general, can't we have a black designer's dress on the first lady?! I am sure she understands the importance), but her mix of European designers has been refreshing. I love that she is doing her and to hell with the naysayers. The Moschino bow blouse got mixed reviews, but I think it was representative of the joy and optimism that she represents - classic fabric, exuberant expression!!!!! I even noticed that mother's hair and makeup have enjoyed a fierce upgrade. Honey, that 'do and face beat are working!!!!! She is looking more gorgeous than ever.

Above are my faves from the trip. And, I have to tell you that hands down, Michelle's BEST look of all time is the Azzedine Alaia knit dress. GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The gorgeously toned arms, the bare legs, the high heel and the sheer simplicity/complexity of the dress adds up to one thing - FIERCE. A first lady wearing Alaia - how bleeping modern can you get?!?!? Work girl!!!
