Inside Lady M’s Closet: If it Zips, it Fits

Ok, Ok. I tried to ignore this since everyone under the sun, including people who don’t know fashion from fiduciary, have already covered it. Butt it’s a slow news day, so I’ll recap Lady M’s fashion tips which I know you’re all familiar with.

1. Mix it up.

Captain America tights, buckaroo bandito bandana, backwards forwards sweater/shirt and Prada shades. Crazy mixed up! Genius.

To be fashion forward you sometimes have to mix it up…backwards;

…and reverse belted

and sometimes mixing it up is simply an inspired, inexplicable blend of florals and graphics:

Magical. You’ll get it when you’re older too.

2.Wear what you love. This is an easy one!

Too easy, really.

I’m feelin’ the love. Butt it is fickle.

3. Be practical about what you wear. Mrs. O says she checks the weather and her schedule before deciding on an outfit. If she's playing in the grass with kids, she's probably not going to choose a skirt or a revealing top.

The operative word here is “probably”:

Bonus question: when IS it appropriate for a FLOTUS to wear revealing clothes?

When you want to look “hawt,” of course

4. The perfect shirt is critical. Make sure you can move and feel good in one investment blouse.

I’m presuming that this is the “Won” Lady M is talking about, as it “fits” perfectly. It is not exactly optimal for the “Let’s Be Moving” part however, as the “fit” parts seem to get in the way of the “move.” Here are a few of Lady M’s other investment shirts that might be a better bet for that.

Investment shirts should also be appropriate to the occasion and perfectly proportioned.

And of course, there’s this one that is both a perfect fit and perfect for MOving in, so maybe this is the one Lady M was referring to:

5. Don’t obsess about your clothes, be practical about them, and make the people around you your focus.

Because Lady M is all about making the people around her the focus. And she consistently chooses clothes that communicate that fact:

This is so-oooo not about me!


I would like to thank our sponsors: Goldman Sachs, the POWS, the DNC, and Capital One  - all of whom have made it possible for the Visigoths to occupy the Big White,  plunder the Country and still manage to provide useful fashion advice to the little people.
