Of Note- Narciso Rodriguez

Narciso Rodriguez is a Cuban-American designer who has seen his share of ups and downs in the industry. When he first announced to his parents that he wanted to become a designer, they were less than thrilled. He applied to Parsons anyway. From there he went on to design for a handful of designers like Anne Klein, Calvin Klein, Cerruti, and TSE. He gained super-stardom after he designed Carolyn Bessette’s wedding dress. After some bad business dealings, he fell into debt. Thanks to fashion industry and celebrity friends, he was able to get back on his feet again. He has even designed some clothes for Michelle Obama.

Behold Michelle Obama in Alexander McQueen Resort 2011. For the past few weeks, I have been doing Blogger Bad Bish posts on Fridays, but this week I had to do something different. I mean look at this dress. It is gorgeous. She looks so amazing at the State Dinner for the Republic of China. Amazing. I love her in purple and green jewel tones, but now I think I adore her in ravishing red.

Toys R On My Wrist


I think you guys are starting to get me or least understand my likes and dislikes. Reader Mandy sent me this information on Toywatch. I have been in LOVE with Toywatch every since I saw them in a Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog a few years back. I have been looking for a good watch for about 3 good years now. I had finally decided on buying a Toywatch, but I couldn’t decide which one I wanted. They are so beautiful and come in all of these neat and funky colors. They are reasonable price for a good quality watch.

Apparently I am not the only one loving these watches. Oprah made them one of her infamous favorite things, and Michelle Obama wears one too. Call me crazy, but Michelle Obama is family in my head, and I love the fact that she wears a brand that I am crazy about. 😉

SOOOO now I really am in a bind because they have these neat Jelly Watches where you can customize them by popping and snapping different color pieces on them. They totally made the decision process extra crazy for me. I like the black and pink and the blue and white and the all white and the all black. How is a girl as particular as me supposed to pick one when you have too many choices to chose from?

Michelle Obama For Vogue!!!

According to WWD,

VOGUE’S OBAMA TREATMENT: Speaking of the new administration, it appears Vogue has finally landed First Lady Michelle Obama for a cover — and it could be out in the next few weeks. Thank Obama’s hairdresser for confirming the news: Frédéric Fekkai stylist Johnny Wright this week inked a deal with television production company 44 Blue, which produces reality shows such as Style Network’s “Split Ends.” The news reports on the deal said Wright “has styled the First Lady’s coif for the Democratic National Convention, her upcoming appearance on the cover of Vogue magazine and other occasions.” Really? An e-mail to Wright’s publicist went unreturned. A Vogue spokesman stayed on script about whether Michelle Obama will make a cover appearance, saying simply, “We’re very interested in working with the First Lady.”

Nevertheless, all signs point to go for Mrs. Obama’s cover turn. Photographer Annie Leibovitz, who shoots for many Condé Nast titles, including Vogue and Vanity Fair, was spotted in Washington last week leaving the Hay-Adams Hotel, where the Obamas were staying before their eventual move to the White House. And since the March Vogue’s spring fashion issue, which hits newsstands in mid-February, is one of the thickest of the year, most observers suspect that would be the most likely one to feature the new First Lady (and family). Though it isn’t known which designer Michelle Obama will adorn for the shoot, insiders suspect she may choose some looks off the rack. Being that she’s already expressed her affection for J. Crew — which she wore during the inaugural festivities — and Target, don’t be surprised if she opts for one of those.
