Jamie Stone is a star in stripes today and is glowing from top to bottom. Another star we’ve seen lately? Michelle Obama in her checkered jacquard Thom Brown coat at the Inauguration yesterday. What did you guys think of it? I just love how unexpected she is. The bangs, the under the radar designer, the purple/blue color palette she dressed her family in. The woman is just so cool and you know she keeps that man in check and loves him to pieces!
As far as this star and stripes outfit goes, I was lucky enough to find a Calvin Klein belted dress for $49.99 at the Ross near my house . Normally, you would think black would be the obvious choice for shoes, but the pop of red in patent leather made the outfit complete. Sometimes it’s just as helpful to try things on when you think you’re narrowing them OUT, because you never know what may end up actually working. We first thought the red pumps would never be an option for this look and in the end it was the winner! This outfit is so chic it deserves its own inauguration speech as far as I’m concerned!
