The first night of the 2012 DNC was packed with inspirational, heartfelt speeches, powerful politicians and one uber-fabulous First LadyMichelle Obama as always, delivered an incredible speech about her husband, President Barack Obama, including the quote of the night: “Being President doesn’t change who you are. It reveals who you are.” And she did so looking stunning in a two-tone brocade custom Tracy Reese dress. The A-line style dress featured a tank top, which showed off her toned arms, a slim bodice and slightly flared skirt that hit just below the knee, revealing her toned legs. The top portion of the frock featured a pink-colored brocade design, while the bottom hem was a bluish-gray. The First Lady kept her accessories simple, wearing only earrings and J. Crew ‘Everly’ pink suede pumps. Also, she wore a blue-gray nail polish (the brand and color we’ve yet to find out). Since her dress was custom-made, you can’t get it (not yet anyway – but maybe the designer will eventually produce it for the masses?), here are a few options, plus accessories and nail polish, to get you looking First Lady-like!

Here are the J. Crew Shoes .


Check out the following Nail Polishes that are similar to what the First Lady wore:


Butter London Lady Muck ($14)

Shop: Essie’s Chinchilly ($8) and Maybelline Impeccable Greys ($4.99).



Weekend Recap!

Hey Gossipers! Excuse me for not posting so much this week. I was caught up with Hurricane Isaac and also that meant I had a lot of work to do. Plus I was lazy. This weekend I got my nails done by OPI and the color is a hunter green, which I wanted to do this weekend (The picture is below). The color is called Get In the Expresso Lane. I was thinking of getting another one from Zoya called Suvi. Let me know what you guys think.


Also I was talking to my friend and she told me about the new Chanel Holographic Nail Polish. I’m obsessed, but $30 dollars for a nail polish. Hello! So luckily I found a cheaper version found in Ulta. The brand is called Layla & it’s $15 . Let me know if you guys find a cheaper version.

Are you guys going to Fashion’s Night Out on Thursday? Let me know about it and tell me what you guys think!
