A Moment with. . . woah! Woman, What Are You Wearing?

Mrs. Obama*, what the heck are you doing? The only explanation for this is that you are a big Kishi fan (okay, there are probably other explanations, but I have a blog about The Kishi so there's a certain direction I need to take this, dig?) and you're rocking some sort of tribute ensemble. Maybe you got some BSC books for Malia and Sasha at a garage sale. You seem like the kind of down-to-earth woman who can still appreciate the lure of a good garage sale, even though you happen to be, oh, the First Lady. So perhaps you were reading the books together - I appreciate your hands-on parenting style, for real - and you found yourself admiring the panache of the Kishi. So you woke up one day and decided 'elegant sheath dresses be damned! I'm going to do this up Claudia-style!'

It happens to all of us. I had a phase where I thought skirts over jeans was a really clever idea (I will try to find photographic evidence later so everyone can point and laugh merrily). But, honestly and with all due respect, I don't think this is the best look for you.

If I start seeing earrings made from paper clips, we are going to have to have a TALK.

* relevant: the entry in which I photoshopped the President's head onto Kristy Thomas' body. I'm still pretty proud of that.

Baha, you are hilarious!

But the question is still not answered. What exactly IS Michelle Obama wearing?

Megan said...

Oh my gosh...maybe she let Sasha and Malia dress her?

I love the guy who looks like he's about to lose his shit.

I actually think that skirt is pretty amazing. It looks like it was stitched from crepe paper streamers. She needs a better top and tights, though.

Good lord, is she wearing TWO cardigans? I know that Kishi and friends would endorse wearing multiple layers of socks, but dual sweaters?

I can't wait for her to bust out her Magic School Bus Ms. Frizzle outfit of Under the Sea. Or America, or something like that. As long as it involves jelly shoes.

Ahh, the skirt-over-pants combo - so 90's grunge! I too loved it... in fact I'm wondering why I ever gave it up? Oh that's right, I got OLD...

Katie said...

i went through the same skirts-over-pants phase but mine was the dresses-over-jeans variety.

I miss your What Chuck Wore posts! They are brilliant.

I too wore skirts of jeans. And corduroys. But never jean skirts over jeans or corduroy skirts over corduroys. That would be tacky.

Okay, I admit it. I still sometimes really want to wear skirts over jeans. I don't think it's the worst look. Though at the age of 27, and as a teacher, I'm not sure what kind of respect I would muster in that apparel.

i love the look on one of her minders faces...

That guy behind her looks like "Oh my gosh, lady. What are you wearing?!"
