Anyone want to discuss with me?

Some thoughts:

1. I love all Michelle and Malia's designs from Mizrahi. Sasha - I could go to Sears or JCPenney and find a ' Sunday Best' dress that looks better.

2. Monique Lhuiller - KILLER. Love the red. I'm not crazy about the ruffles, but ruffles don't scare Michelle Obama. She has the shoulders to kill in this.

3. Carolina Herrera - looked like a dress to the Oscars, not the Inauguration. BUT, I bet that Ms. Herrera could design a killer suit for Mrs. O.

4. Badgley Micshka - Come on. This for the First Lady, not Beyonce.

5. Betsey Johnson - um, no.

6. Rucci - um, he needed to at least add color.

7. Lagerfeld- no for the dress. YES for the suit. Love the Winter White.

8. Diane Von Furstenberg - I like it. The shoulders would have to be toned down, but Michelle has the body for it.

9. Suwannagate - too fussy. and what's up with the black top - yuck.

10. Marc Jacobs - no. not enough WOW.

11. Christian LaCroix- ditch the cape, and I'm in love., I do love the American flag purse - cracked me up.

12. LaCroix ruffled neck - don't like it.

13. LaCroix bow in the back - too fussy

14. Kors was so clean. So simple. I like the dress, but don't love it.

15. DeLa Renta - what's up with folks having such a hard time with Sasha's dress? She's seven. Have none of them ever seen little Black girls dress up in ' Sunday Best'? Loved Michelle and Malia's dresses . No to Sasha's.

16. Zac Posen - just say no.

17. Zac Posen off the shoulders - getting better, but still no.

18. Tracy Reese - I like it, but don't love it. Love the color though - killer.

19. Rodarte - three no's, but huge no's too the WeeMichelle dresses.

20. Rachel Roy - too simple.

21. Peter Som- I love it for some reason. I don't really grasp why, but I can see Michelle in it, and me going ' sigh' looking at it on tv.

22. Tahari - don't like it.

23. Tuleh - Michelle would rock it - the color, and the flow that I think I see in it.

24. Kai Milla - I'm not into the jeweled top look.

25. Nicole Miller - hate the bow.

26. Nicole Miller - I like the dress, but think Mrs. O should be in a suit for the actual inauguration.

27. Reem Acra - they're killing me with the Sasha dresses. Killing me! Just say no.

28. Reem Acra - just say no.
I'm not kidding when I say any middle class Black mother could go into JC Penney or Sears, let alone Bloomingdale's or Saks, and find better selections for Malia and Sasha than we've seen from these designers.

29. Reem Acra for Michelle Obama - I like. Accentuates all the positives of Mrs. O

30. Reem Acra - like the White, but 29 is better, IMO

31. Badgley Mischka - um, no. not formal enough for the actual Inauguration

32. Rucci - no.

33. The Diane Von Furstenberg Suit - I'm in love. The design. The color. OMG, Mrs. O would rock it.

34. Carolina Herrera - classic, but not rocking.

35. LaCroix - give the man credit. He knows FLARE. Damn, this is FLARE.

36. LaCroix - too much flare, and pouffy.

37. Zac Posen - still saying no

38. Tracy Reese - me like this for the Inauguration.

39. Rachel Roy - no

40. Peter Som - I love it. and hope to see it on Michelle Obama one day. But, not at the Inauguration.

41. Tuleh - same as 40.

42. Marc Cornejo - blech.

Uh...yeah. You know what would be really cool? If our dear Obamas don't get buck wild with the lavishness of it all, while forgetting that the country is broke as hell.

OK...fine: I'll stop with the negativity.

They should roll with Kenneth Cole.

We now know who the fashionista is around here. :)


I'll be happy if they have on clothes. Hows that?

I've never had enough money to worry about designers. Hopefully I can get to that place in life one day though.

I probably know the names of 4 or 5 designers.
