Michelle Obama dropped the Ball (Gown)

We LOVE Michelle Obama. She is a smart woman (she's a lawyer, after all), a great mother, and the worlds most supportive wife. But she needs to hire a new stylist!

We had such high hopes for Michelle Obama's inauguration day and evening wear, after all, she has taken a few fashion risks and has pulled them off before!

But BOY were her dresses CLUNKERS yesterday!
That Isabel Toledo nightmare was a hybrid of "mother-of-the-bride" meets Barbara Bush, neither a very pretty picture.

The ball gown by Jason Wu did nothing for her, it looked like a chenille bedspread, it made her bust look funny, the angular lines of the straight top and the one shoulder strap were very unflattering.

If WE had dressed her, she'd have worn something more like this!

This sweet bow jacket from Anthropologie is really cute, and similar to styles MO has worn before, much more modern than her frumpy choice. Its muted color would look great over this J. Crew dress in a similar color palette to the Toledo dress.

This vintage Valentino dress with the more graceful and feminine lines would have looked so pretty on her, the taupe color would look subtle yet gorgeous on her skin tone. image source

Or this vintage sweetheart neckline dress by Roberto Capucci in inky blue would have been so stunning on Michelle too, fitted through the torso and exquisitely structured, it would have flattered her tall frame. image source

Michelle Obama: We are available for stylist services if you need us! Just doing our patriotic duty!

sweet springtime

There is still snow on the ground, but our minds are dreaming of sweet springtime, with the birdies chirping and the bulbs starting to grow. When green (rather than white) is the predominant color!
Here are a few of our favorite spring time items at vintage Jones ...
