Back To Our Roots (I hope that’s not considered a microaggresion)
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 7-24-2016 | MOTUS

I know: there are some Dems calling for Debbie Wasserman Schultz to be dumped as head of the DNC. Her offense? Leaked emails. Boy those Dems are tough on leakers! Now do you understand why Hillary went to such lengths to ensure nobody would ever be able to see her official emails?

Butt enough of that, I have bigger fish to fry. Today I’m going back to my roots – reflecting the fashion iconery of our FLOTUS. For all of you doubters out there who’ve questioned – sometimes not so graciously – Lady M’s status as a fashion forward icon, I ran across this article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday: The Big Reveal: Looks That Show Off Your Back. Need I remind you that Lady M’s been doing just that for well over 7 years?

Fashion designers love the Entrance-Maker—the kind of gown that jolts even jaded observers awake and makes them start competitively tweeting.

Recently, however, the focus has shifted to exposing the back—


Again Lady M -  like her husband - has been leading from behind for years:

Most women, of course, don’t spend a lot of time coyly arching their spines on a red carpet. For us, the trend is fortunately trickling down into less provocative real-world clothing we can wear on a summer day or, in its most discreet iterations, even at work.

Mr. Youssef, along with designer brands such as Jason Wu, Monse and Proenza Schouler, have fashioned novel ways to flash varying degrees of flesh during the daytime—and into evening—with dresses and tops that cleverly highlight the lumbar region.

As much as a great entrance can entrance,


it’s that last glimpse of skin that’s getting all the attention.

Put another way: You had us at goodbye.


Oh yeah, you will definitely have us at “goodbye” - and it can’t be soon enough. As they say, don’t let the door hit you in “the lumbar region” on the way out.



Oh, and just for the record:

no reentry

Michelle, when fashion is all about disturbance in the force.

I don’t get it. Like most middle aged ladies, she’s a little zaftig. Big deal.

Criticism of Michelle has more to do with her choice of color and style (or lack thereof: think boob belts; plaids, stripes and garish color; ostentatious gownage; and more) than her plump derriere.

It’s not her thickness that bothers me. Thick is muy bueno in my book. My big hang up is her attitude and narcissistic personality, and it extends into the ridiculously expensive garments that she chooses to wear.

There is a deliberate outrage about Michelle and her entire presence. I have friends in the black community who revel in this, especially her hip hop endeavors. She is most deliberately the antithesis of class and culture which she undoubtedly views as “white.”
