Last night represented the second time this country has made history. I am so proud to be an American. Back me up, Toby Keith!
I spent most of last night glued to the TV, waiting for the election results. But I have to say that the highlight of my night was seeing Michelle Obama walk out in her chic burgundy (my favorite fall color) Michael Kors number with a cute black shrug and...yes, ladies and gentlemen, a dazzling pink brooch. Everything about her look was perfect.
Now, I'm not afraid to say that I'm not as huge a fan of Michelle Obama's style as many others are. While she is one of my ultimate role models given the extent of her intelligence, dedication to issues she cares about, and success in her career (while being a mother of two beautiful girls), she's too tall to be wearing some of those big, wide dresses with huge prints. But last night took the cake. The cut of the dress suited her perfectly. The color was understated, yet festive. And her accessories were a perfect fit. Here's how you can look like Michelle at your 9 to 5 or at a festive holiday party:
