The (Not So Little) Red Dress

Like many last evening, I was glued to the television watching President Obama’s second inauguration ceremony. Regardless of politics, I love the hopeful spirit of Inauguration Day. It is what makes this country great.

Admittedly the highlight of the night was when Michelle Obama came out in that stunning, ruby chiffon and velvet gown by Jason Wu. Nick heard me whoop with glee from the other room! While she looks beautiful in anything, what struck me was how bold and confident her color choice was, and how appropriate it was in marking the beginning of their second term in the White House.

Red is a strong statement. It gives everyone a boost whenever they wear it. It’s an “I don’t mess around” color! Forget the LBD. We all need a little more red in our lives, don’t you think?


Beautiful couple and family.  And wow, those arms.
