What to Wear: Convention Speaker

What to Wear: Convention Speaker

Wasn’t Michelle great last night?! So smart and poised.

Important business aside, what did you think of her dress? I personally liked it. A classic cut in a nice color with perfectly matched black pumps. The neckline and three quarter sleeves were great choices for the event. I’m not as into the brooch, but it worked well on TV. I’d love to have a similar dress in my own closet.

PS: Did Kennedy make you get misty-eyed?

PPS: The Obama girls were so cute! I like what John Hodgman had to say about it. “Hello Girardeau Family!’…It’s the whole message of this convention, in a way, spoken by a seven year old. A hello out into the night, and I think it was heard.”

    I know that you are more than swamped with wedding prep but I do need some help with autumn shoes. What do buy? What’s in and what’s out? You know, shoes that are quirky, stylish, and comfortable enough to walk in.

    Love the blog.

    I loved that neckline and color on her…sadly I didn’t hear her speak but I looked at the fashion 🙂

    Michelle O’s speech made me misty eyed. Especially as she spoke of her dad. I thought the dress was ok. didn’t love it didn’t hate it..I like it fine. I may have picked something a bit more “stunning” as I delivered a speech 🙂 The girls are so adorable and they always look really cute and sweet. I would love to see those two playing about the White House. They would really be a huge hit at the Easter Egg rolls and at the Christmas Tree lighting..they are two little stars 🙂

    Love the BLOG…all the way from DC!

    I love the structure of the dress and the brooch is cool because it gives it flair. I did weep a bit. Such beautiful speeches that touch the heart. You go Michelle O!

    I love my Obama family, but I fell into the “not so much” camp. I sighed at her outfit, thinking about how she’s normally the sharpest dressed lady in town, but for her big moment she had a weird drapy top and a weird broach. It’s ok, she’ll bring out the big guns on Thursday.

    And, while she did a good job, they gave her some TERRIBLE lines. I hope that works for the swing voters, because, man, it was not fair to her sassy self!

    I think the makeover is “working”. I think she probably could have chosen a stunner, but her people on the Obama team probably going for something a little more first “lady”-ish.

    Oh dear. It’s a conspiracy theory about Mrs. Obama’s clothes… Sorry!

    Your last nod about the night made my eyes well up. I’m so overwhelmed by the whole race that i often feel like “it’s time”

    I think she did a great job. I like the dress on her. It’s a bit boring, but that’s ok. It’s not a pantsuit. The girls are darling. I am loving both wives and all the kids right now. Yay. Biden’s son choked up on the Today Show talking about his (step) mother and how great she was. Awww.

    I’m a sucker for politics and basically cry through the whole convention. Jesse Jackson Jr. is awesome, Teddy Kennedy is great, and Hilary had me going last night, too (we’ll discuss the orange in another post, I guess).

    Michelle always looks good because she’s beautiful, but I don’t love the dress. And why is she bowing to pressure and wearing sleeves? Part of a conspiracy?

    I liked the dress she wore, but would have ditched the broach and added a wide belt.
