So last week TOPSHOP, the mecca of UK style, hit the states. How many of you were able to check out the new New York flagship? I have friends that waited for over 2 hours to get their hands on the latest styles. For now, I’m doing my shopping at I’ll wait till the crowds disappear. They will eventually, right?!

Time for Change…and for a new fashion designer

Out with the old, in with the new. Yesterday marked a monumental day in history—President Obama officially took the reigns. I loved listening to his inauguration speech. It was just so inspiring. And, wow, I must say that the First Lady looked amazing last night! There’s been buzz for some time as to whom Michelle Obama would be donning to the Ball. She surprised many (including me) with her decision to go with Jason Wu. But, wow, was that one-shoulder, white gown just stunning, or what? Jason is a 26-year-old, New York-designer, who launched his collection in 2006. It’s safe to say that the First Lady’s glamorous chiffon choice has just taken his fashion career to a whole new level. An additional nod of approval came from the President, “First of all, how good looking is my wife?” I’d say an all-around night of achievements and one very fashionable First Lady! And as tradition goes, after wearing it to 10 fabulous parties, this fashion statement will live on at the Smithsonian.
