From the concession speech by John McCain to the incredible crowds all over the country, last night was pure magic. It’s the closest thing to a miracle I’ve seen in my lifetime. Transformation is upon us. I really believe that. I was so inspired by Obama’s acceptance speech … I was brought to tears several times while he was speaking last night.
I’m feeling so much hope for the future – not just because Obama is now President Elect Obama, but because of the thousands of people across the country who voted for the first time – no matter who they voted for – and because I saw hope in the faces in the crowds last night after the decisive victory.
As a tribe it seems we have been in a depressed, fearful and deeply apprehensive place for the past 4-6 years … especially since 911. I feel that lifted last night at least for a moment in time. Reality will be upon us but it will come with a lingering sense of hope for the future.
Well, enough waxing philosophical. I love Michelle Obama … her loyalty to her husband and family, her poise, her intellect and integrity. Still, the black and red dress. So sad that she chose it. I think it was an anomaly. She isn’t known for wearing “cheap” looking clothes. All right she does shop at White House/Black Market, J Crew, H&M and other middle of the road retail outlets but … that’s where I shop. So I’ve been liking what she’s worn on the campaign trail for the most part.
And, she’s taken us back to wearing feminine yet strong clothing. That said … now she can pump up her wardrobe a bit and I’m sure she will be spending a bit more on her clothes within her personal and progressive style choices.
Michelle, her husband and their two girls, Malia and Sasha.
But as Charlotte Observer’s Style Editor says “Self confidence is sexier than any stiletto or tight dress. And it matches everything you own.” Enough said I think.
Self confidence she has in spades. Here’s a little fashion trip down recent memory lane.
I don’t think she did too badly with her choice of dress on the campaign trail.
