|Michelle Obama in Rachel Roy|
What I took away from the President’s speech was the need for us to come together so we can achieve great things. There was a focus on education and respect for our teachers, which reminded me of how things were when I was a child. It was just a simpler time where kids played outside on the front lawn, and Mom’s wore big Jackie-O sunglasses on the top of their head like a headband. There is something about slipping into a Tory Burch tunic that brings me right back.
When I saw Michelle Obama walk into the Chamber last night I had mixed emotions about the dress she was wearing. And tweets were flying with some loving the dress and some not so much. But as I watched the speech the more I saw the dress, the more I fell in love with the dress. There was something so elegant about it’s simple design and the beautiful silvery color. Accented with simple Lucite bangles, I thought the First Lady’s choice of dress and jewelry was right in line with the words the President spoke.
Thank you Rachel Roy for designing a true classic, and to the First Lady for making it her dress of choice.
Maybe it’s the time for a shift in sensibilities!
