Today was Inauguration Day  and whatever your political views one can help but notice that Michelle Obama is a force in fashion. Our First Lady opts for sensible style with a twist and loves color. Shes approachable yet elegant in whatever she chooses to wear and is  always…always…perfectly put together.

Jason Wu on Speed dial!

First Lady Michelle Obama literally put designer Jason Wu on the fashion map when she wore his beautiful white gown to the Inaugural Ball in January 2009…. Fast forward two years and Jason Wu is still going strong. His Fall 2011 collection at New York Fashion Week is a beautiful mix of intricate detailing, lush fabrications and exquisite styling…I have a feeling that this collection will have Jason Wu on First Lady Michelle Obama’s speed dial.

Who is Peter Soronen? Just ask Michelle Obama!

Who is Peter Soronen and what is he doing with

First Lady Michelle Obama?

Now everybody just take a deep breath and relax-this isn’t going to be a tawdry tell all but an introduction to an up and coming designer. Word on the street ( and the street we are referring too is Pennsylvania Avenue) is that our lovely first lady has plucked designer Peter Soronen from relative obscurity to the national limelight by choosing to wear his beautiful gowns not once but twice for some very important events. Recently the First Lady wore a Peter Soronen gown to the Kennedy Center Honors and in the past donned a gorgeous gown for the Governors Ball. Two for Two-and were only in year one of the administration.  Quite an accomplishment for a designer who started his career in Chicago in the early 90s making vintage corset patterns into wearable dresses. Then in 1998 the wedding and evening gowns he made to order were popular enough that he moved himself and his team to New York City. After that Soronen made his New York runway debut in 2007, and now sells his dresses at Barneys New York, Nordstrom, and obviously has some “freelance” gigs on the side…

Pencil You In!

The Perfect Pencil Skirt. Ann Taylor $110.00

The Perfect Pencil Skirt. Ann Taylor $110.00

Here we go! It’s almost the end of July and even though the temp today in SUNNY California is 101 degrees, I am finally ready (and I hope you are)- to talk Fall Fashion 2009-2010.

First up-The Pencil Skirt.

 A fashion staple that will look good on EVEYBODY- promise! All you have to remember are two simple rules to make this fashion item look good and last forever:

Ready? Grab your pencil and take note:

Rule #1: Make sure your pencil skirt fits! Meaning: It should sit comfortably around the waist and glide past your hip to reach knee or just above knee length. Translation:- no pulling, gaping, bunching of fabric at the hip, derriere(bum/booty) whatever you want to call it … or any other area heading down to the knee.  If you need a larger size that will alleviate the gaposis problem then purchase skirt to fit your widest area and have the waist altered to fit you. There is this amazing resource called a TAILOR. A good tailor doesn’t cost a fortune and can alter the waist and length in no time flat.

Rule #2: Optimal skirt length on every woman is just above or at the knee. If it’s to long…..-H.E.M. it.

A good pencil skirt will last a lifetime.
