Michelle Obama and the Black and White dress

I have been absolutely awful at posting, I know! I've had a couple of ideas, but they just didn't work out.

Anyways, a week ago Michelle Obama, the wife of the democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama, co-hosted The View. One of the topics that came up of coarse was how the wives of the Democratic and Republican nominees dressed. Mrs. Obama said she had gotten her dress at the chain-store "White House Black Market" and all of a sudden the stores were selling out of the dress incredibly quickly! It seems she really has quite an influence on women, especially since the dress was about $150, which is much more affordable than the Oscar de la Renta wardrobe of Mrs. McCain. And Michelle's accidental advertisement of the store brought attention to the designer of the affordable dress, Donna Ricco.

Here Michelle Obama is with the View women wearing her Black and White dress.

One of Michelle Obama's favorite designers is Maria Pinto. She is a Chicago-based designer.

While being interviewed by Katie Couric, Michelle Obama wore this purple dress by Maria Pinto.

More Maria Pinto.
I checked out her website and she really does seem like one talented desinger. Her designs are simple and sophisticated while still having quirky cuts.
Here Spring 2008 line:

Her clothes are very beautiful and they do have the classic first-lady look. I can see why Michelle Obama loves her designs!

As for me, I really like the way Mrs. Obama dresses, it's classic while still being fun.

Burberry Rain Boots

Raining where you are?
If so you may be interested in these . . .

Burberry heeled Rain boots

Burberry Rain boots with disk embellishment.

Both $350 and completely useless. . . Though I will admit the creme pair is pretty awesome. How awesome would I look in a raincoat, umbrella, and burberry rain boots?!

Happy Fathers Day!

Well I doubt any fathers actually read this blog (though it's great if they do), but I still wanted to send out a Fathers' Day Post.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Though it may amaze some of you, I've just seen Breakfast at Tiffany's for the very first time! I don't know what has been keeping me from seeing the classic for so long, but at least I've finally gotten around to it. I thought it was quite a pleasant movie. Audrey Hepburn played, Holly, who was one wild character and her bluntness and care-free atitude absolutely amazed me. Though I believe my favorite character was the cat!

The opening seen was probably one of the best seens, and I thought it was delightful. I immediantly understood the title "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

Seens from the film:


"Moon River"

The movie was very good and I loved Audrey Hepburn and her wonderful sunglasses. I enjoyed the film greatly.

"Moon River" and Sex and The City

Third Summer Post

Yay! More posts! Oh, and I do hope to get more creative names for these summer posts.


I'm not sure what to make of Mischa's outfit. Though the pieces are nice no doubt and I feel like I've seen her in the white dress before.

This is Emmanuelle Chriqui. I have no idea who she is but I like her look at the Zohan premiere.

The off-screen and on-screen couple of Gossip Girl look awesome here. Though I recommend Badgley button up his shirt.

Kate Beckinsale was awarded as Film Actress of Glamour's Women of the Year Awards and she certainly dressed to impress. She looks beautiful and I love the color.

Hayden Panettiere in red, as usual, it defiantly seems to be a favorite color of hers. This is a different dress than she usually wears and I think she looks so cute in it.

I also love Hayden's look here, especially her t-shirt.

This is the speech after Obama clenched the Democratic presidential candidate nomination. I thought his wife looked so pretty in the purple dress with the belt. And they also shared the fist pound on stage which got a lot of attention, because it was so sweet! And more great news about them Michelle Obama is going to be a co-host on The View on Wednesday, June 18! I'm so excited!

And speaking of The View, if I had a photo I would have posted it, but I don't. Barbara Walters returned to The View after her book tour on Tuesday, and she looked beautiful! She wore a pale pink coat, and she looked great.


CFDA Fashion Awards

Carolina Herrera with Diane von Furstenberg, who is the president of CFDA (which I still don't know what it stands for).

Victoria Beckham ("Posh") with Marc Jacobs (while wearing him as well). The clothes Posh wears aren't so bad, but for some reasons they never look that great on her, maybe she's just too edgy.

Ashley Olsen went with her latest look of the pant suit, though this one is no where near the one she wore at the Sex and The City Premiere (below).

She looked amazing!

Kim Cattrall looked awesome, as expected.

I though Hillary looked so cute in this sparkling Micheal Kors dress. Very fun and age appropriate, though I didn't really get the snake-skin shoes.

Though both look a bit awkward in what they're wearing I don't think it matters for the both of them, I'll always love them.

Tina Fey again, with Tory Burch who was awarded best accessories designer.

Mandy Moore wore a beautiful Abaete gown.

Maggie Gyllenhaal (Proenza S.), Victoria Beckham (look at her half smile), and Eva Mendes awarded Francisco Costa (who designs for Calvin Klein) with the Womenswear Designer of the Year award.



After hearing this song on a Volvo (a car maker) commercial I fell so in love with it. The song is "I Adore You" by Melpomene. I tried describing the song to my friends but was unsuccessful.

I don't know if this is the actual video to it, but it's the best one I found.

Melpomene. Hmm, I wonder if that is his real name . . .

Also, Death Cab For Cutie has a new album, Narrow Stairs, that came out only a short time ago and though I've only listened to a few of the songs I have to say it is quite good! I so hope they stop by Atlanta for a show, that would be awesome.

I Will Possess Your Heart

And though DCFCs' new songs are great I'll always love their older ones.

"Crooked Teeth"

"Your Heart Is An Empty Room"

"Marching Bands of Manhattan"

"Such Great Heights" This is by the Postal Service which is a side band of Death Cab For Cutie. Ben Folds also did a cover of this song that is quite good as well.


Happy Thursday!

Second Summer Post


Angelina Jolie looks so good on the cover of the July Vanity Fair. I think she looks really classic in this photo. I didn't know it but apparently Angelina gave birth to her twins in France.

And while on Vanity Fair.com I was looking through old covers of the magazine and found some really awesome ones.

I remember seeing this issue on the shelves, I love it. August 2007

As much as I don't like Lindsey Lohan I though she looked awesome on this cover. February 2006

This wasn't long ago at all but I had never seen it. April 08

The March 1992 issue of Vanity Fair with Goldie Hawn.

August 1991.

There have been some really cool VF covers!



"Burn After Reading"

The movie looks hilarious. It's about a gym trainer (pitt) finding the CD of a fired CIA agent, then trying to black mail the CIA agent.


One of my favorite artists is Gnarls Barkley and I didn't realize they had a new album out since April of 2008, it's called The Odd Couple. One of the songs on the album is "Going On," and I love it so much.


Hope to post soon again!
