Just a quick post of fashion for you to check out.
The Michelle Obama Look Book 2010 --The Cut. You might have seen it already but I just ran across it this morning. The photos, all 222 of them, show the First Lady and her clothes which I think are really wearable for real people. Thank you MO! Michelle Obama Look Book
The sheath dress is shown in many versions and I am thinking "I've got that pattern, now if only I can get the fit." The sweater with everything is done over and over, not a bad thing I like it. But the belt over the sweaters I can do without. Photos 141, 162, and 173 I really liked. Ok, I really like almost all of them. Photo 141 was casual but bright and I like the way the designer used a border print at the top drawing attention to the face. I admit I always thought of border prints as going at the bottom until I saw a dress on Net-A-Porter.
This is the dress that clued me in: Black and White Border Print Dress. Isn't this a great use of a border print? I actually own some black and white fabric that would work for that dress. If only I were so talented to be able to sew good enough to tackle a pattern like that. But I know some of you out there can do it.
I heard about Net-A-Porter on the CBS Sunday Morning Show. It is a great site for some cool looking fashions. Some of which I think I could wear, but most are too hip, too young, and way too bare for me. I know this because the measuring tape told me so yesterday when I measured my waist for the elastic in a skirt. (Darn! Wasn't my bust size just slightly over that a few years ago?)
