New Book About Mrs. Obama’s Style

Word on the street is that there is a new book out today about Mrs. Obama’s style. The book is titled, Mrs. O: The Face of Fashion Democracy. The author Mary Tomer is a contributing editor and co-founder of http://www.mrs-o.org, a website dedicated to following Michelle Obama’s fashion.

The book contians over 120 photographs and illustrations of Mrs. Obama’s style. It includes quotes on Mrs. Obama’s style from everyday women as well as interviews with some of her favorite designers.

My guess is that this will be more of a look book to be inspired by Michelle Obama’s style.

What I love about her style is that you can relate to it and it is affordable. Although Michelle is a very fit person, she still has curves. I am quite sure those curvy hips is what got President Obama hooked on her in the first place. Her look is never frumpy  or stuffy like previous First Ladies. I like to think of her style as lady like chic because of the florals, crisp collars, cardigans, and kitten heels that she wears. It’s like June Cleaver meets Claire Huxtable.

I think this will make a great coffee table read. Will you be purchasing?

>Designer Highlight/CJ By Cookie Johnson

Last week Oprah had Magic Johnson’s wife Cookie Johnson on her show to promote her new jean line, CJ by Cookie Johnson. Then, last night while reading one of my favorite blogs http://www.fashionbombdaily.com/ I read a post about the same jean line CJ by Cookie Johnson. So, I had to bring it to you guys because the jean line is sized from 2-18 (I know, you don’t have to tell me).

Cookie joined forces with 7 for All Mankind jeans designer and claims to have created the perfect jean for real curvy women. The styles are current and cute and can be easily worked into your wardrobe. Right now these jeans can be purchased at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. They are a bit pricey for jeans, averaging about $200, but, if they are really that great the $200 will be worth it.

>Celebrity Curve Watch

>

This morning I was reading one of my favorite blogs Young, Black, and Fabulous (http://www.theybf.com/) and I spotted curvy girls Fantasia (where has she been?) and Raven Symone.
A trimmer yet still curvy Fantasia looked pretty cute in a black halter dress. The dress has that garbage bag material look to it, which gives the dress a unique look. My only change would have been to add a dramatic pair of chandelier earrings to give the dress a little more pizazz.
My Choices:
Earrings: Charlotte Russe $4, Guess $28
Amrita Singh $90, Charlotte Russe $8.50

Raven Symone looks very sexy. Who knew her waist was this small. I must say that the dress is a little too tight, but, it still looks good on her. I think she should have chosen a better shoe for the dress. I would have went with a  peep toe pump in a animal or lace print. A colored peep toe would have also added a little excitement to the dress. Those black ankle booties do nothing for the dress.

My Choices:

Shoes: Guess $109,Charles David $116, Pour La Victoire $144

Sergio Zelcer $100, Charles David $114, Jeffrey Campbell $100

Kim Kardashian always looks great and knows just how to show off her curves. She was spotted in Miami for her birthday bash. I have no suggestions for Kim. I think she accessorized this look well.
Are you loving these looks from these curvy celebrities and do you think they would work for your curvy body?
