Rock Your Vote Tomorrow, On your Nails!

It’s time to rock the vote tomorrow, Nov 6th and Americans are finding any way they can to show their support for their chosen party.

Whether spoken or unspoken, there are numerous ways to get into the political spirit and let the world know what you stand for. So what better way than to do it fashionably!?

Wearing your party’s color on your finger nails has become one of the hottest Fall trends this year as Democrats and Republicans (and even celebs such as Katy Perry, La La Anthony, Michelle Obama and Ann Romney) paint on the patriotism!

Show the world what team you’re on by sporting red or blue polish like these two new lacquers from Sheswai with awesomely unique wooden caps.

Fersure Red Polish and Stocked Blue Polish

We like Sheswai nail polish because it’s “3 free”—sans formaldehyde, toluene and DBPs. We also adore the richly pigmented, super glossy colors and the awesome caps that are custom made from sustainably harvested wood grown on family-owned tree farms. Retail: $16 / bottle. Get them at beautysage.com

Democracy is about participation, so we encourage you all to do your part and please remember to vote on Nov 6th. We’re not going to tell you who to vote for, but we ask that you consider the value of our founding father’s and the constitution when making your decision. ;-)

Mrs. O chose a classic, fitted sheath dress for the State of the Union address this evening. The look recalls Mrs. O’s early Maria Pinto dresses circa 2008, though the designer of this dress proves to be Rachel Roy, the color “putty.” The First Lady kept accessories to a minimum, wearing drop earrings and a stack of lucite bangle bracelets. Simple and chic.

Of note, Mrs. O is seated with the family of Christina Taylor Green, who was killed in the Tuscon, Arizona shootings earlier this month. The First Lady is also wearing a black and white lapel ribbon in honor or Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

The gorgeous asymmetrical gown of white adorned with organza flowers and crystals. It was beautiful enough to be a wedding dress! We especially liked the ruched bodice, fluffy appliqués and sparkling beading. So elegant and Jackie O-esque. The breathtaking gown will be donated to the Smithsonian, per tradition.

Although wearing white to an inauguration seems to be the trend, we kind of appreciate that Michelle didn’t try to buck the system too much. I think it was a wise step to go for something more traditional than rebellious. She will have plenty of time from here on out to impress us with wild outfits. Who knows, she might be the next Carrie Bradshaw! How awesome would that be?

Another thing I really, really liked was that she wore her hair down. I think it is so much more feminine than any sophisticated up-do.

Michelle Obama Resurrects the Kitten Heel

For the first time in many years Americans are looking to their first lady for fashion inspiration. With her practical, yet stylish sense Michelle Obama has become the muse for designers and housewives across the country. Shying away from the sky-high stiletto trend that has gained popularity in recent years, Obama prefers kitten heels and flats for their comfort and practicality while still remaining fashion-forward. This spring, designers like Donald J Pliner and Fratelli Rosetti are offering kitten heel styles that are not only fashionable, but offer the functionality that a wearer like Mrs. Obama can appreciate as well.

One of the popular Pliner styles is the Lyndie kitten heel bootie which retails for $232.00
