To hell with transition; let's talk fashion.
So, what did ya'll think about the Dress? I didn't like it, but I'm much more conservative in my tastes when it comes to clothing. Nor would I decorate my home with lava lamps, so that tells you something right there.
I did love the dresses the future First Daughters wore. Especially the black one. More children should wear black; it sombers them up a bit. Can't have cheerful looking children, can we?
Check out this gallery of Michelle fashion pics. I really like this H&M number (8). And the Amish look (13) would be exactly what I'd go for. On the other hand, the fist bump dress (2), which looked great on her, is problematic for us redheads, for whom fuchsia is much more suited to the garden, not the closet.
My favorite ensemble, though, was the one she wore for the acceptance speech at the Democratic convention, with the girls in matching shades. Wonder how long those girls will let their mom dress them in matching family outfits?
UPDATE: the individual links in the gallery don't work, you'll have to look at the whole thing.
