Michelle Obama’s shoes: a big change and new hope for Washington?!

michelleobamaI’ve been looking for green, patent leather shoes for months now, and I finally found them: on Michelle Obama’s feet!

Whether you loved them, hated them, or just weren’t quite sure if they went with the rest of the outfit; Michelle Obama’s Inaugural shoes were certainly a change for Washington. Personally, I’m not sure how I felt about the ensemble as a whole, but I definitely LOVED the shoes. I’ve read numerous comments about how patent leather is too flashy, and how she should have worn a neutral color shoe. Statements like that make me think that there isn’t hope for Washington, regardless as to who is in the White House. The shoes were a classic style, functional, and gorgeous, so I don’t understand the problem. Shouldn’t a woman have the right to Choos?

Between Sarah Palin’s red pumps and Michelle Obama’s green Choos, I’m optimistic that things are looking bright on the horizon—at least when it comes to footwear. What’s next? Pelosi in pink? Clinton in cobalt? Perhaps it’s time to write our Congresswomen with some suggestions.

So there’s only one problem with finding your perfect green Choos on the first lady’s feet. Green, Jimmy Choo “Glacier” pumps are now impossible to find!

    I couldn’t agree more. Why shouldn’t she be her fab self? On the entire ensemble… I was on the fence too, until the local NY newcasters staked out the dress designer, Isabel Toledo’s house that night and got a great interview. Toledo explained that the lace on the dress was wool lace and the fabric itself was a number of thin but cold-resistant layers, specially designed to keep M.O. warm without the bulk. A lady who can class it up AND stay warm is a woman after my own heart.
