Campaign for [Wardrobe] Change

Thursday, December 04, 2008

I just realized that as of this week, I've been back in DC for a whole year. And really, what a year it's been. Washington gets a bad rap for being a bit boring, but between the election and the upcoming inauguration {and, just in case I have any independently wealthy readers, I will totally rent you my cute little Dupont Circle apartment for a ridiculously large sum during the inaugural events}, things have really been hopping around here lately. I mean, even Oprah is coming for inauguration week. And you know how I love Oprah!

Many of us are expecting the Obamas and their new crew to breathe even more life into the city, and for Michelle Obama in particular to set a new style standard for DC. (A first lady who wears Thakoon! The mind boggles.) On that note, WWD asked some top designers to come up with sketches of proper first lady ensembles. The results were resoundingly chic and totally charming.

{And! On a mostly unrelated topic, we at FW/Post Express are looking for a few good spring interns, preferably with journalism-fashion-features interest. Drop me a note if you're in the DC area and interested about hearing more about the job.}

What I wouldn't give for the job, being a journalism major and apparel design minor, but DC's a bit of a long haul from NC and I still have classes next semester. Sigh.

I adored this series of drawings. What a fantastically fun idea.

Those designs are FIERCE! I am so looking forward to what Michelle and the girls will be wearing. I have a feeling Michelle Obama is going to be the next Jackie O.

I love them all but especially the white one. Gorgeous!

If you're still looking for the vintage camera case I saw a couple on etsy with the highest one costing about $20. None had a long strap(only wrist ones) but you could easily attach one.

That red dress was in the window of Neiman's at Friendship Heights last week. GORGEOUS.
