The Style Icon – Michelle Obama

As the Obamas get ready to vacate the White House, one thing I am definitely going to miss about them is Michelle Obama’s amazing sense of style. That woman knows how to make anything look FAB! I am yet to see her photographed wearing a piece that doesn’t look great on her. She is the definition of Elegant Style and she knows it!

Michelle Obama’s legacy of style can never be forgotten so Mrs Trump better bring her style game with her. Mrs Obama inspired generations of women like me every time she stepped out. Her support of American fashion and the up-and-coming American designers was like a breath of fresh air. She supported the likes of Jason Wu, Narciso Rodriguez, Tracy Reese, Rachel Roy, and Thakoon over the larger fashion houses like Carolina Herrera, Alexander Wang, or Ralph Lauren.

I must confess I didn’t take to her fashion sense at first. I found it a little too boring but the more I paid attention to her style, the more I got it. She is definitely a fashion lover and she knows her stuff. I love the fact she looks effortlessly chic and comfortable in whatever she wears. She is Style Goals right here.

Michelle Obama also connected fashion to the broader popular culture –

“Fashion is really about passion and creativity, just like music or dance or poetry,” Obama said during her welcome to students. “For so many people across the country, it is a calling; it is a career. It’s the way they feed their families.”

The fashion industry will never forget Michelle Obama. She was and still is a fashion force to reckon with, and she knows it. I hope she continues to look as stylish and as fly as ever.

Balmain X H&M Collection Craziness

So I didn’t get a Balmain x H&M piece, and to be honest I couldn’t be bothered to even try that much. It was impossible for myself or anyone I knew to get on the site all through yesterday, the site crashed as soon as the collection went live at 8.00am, and now I have discovered most pieces are sold out already, and now selling on eBay and I am like, what?

I also read online that many people camped outside the H&M stores in London overnight and I can’t understand why anyone would do that, except it is a business decison and you plan to sell whatever you get online. I have stayed outside a Next store few hours before 9:00am on a Boxing Day and that is the craziest shopping thing I have ever done. It was also many moons ago, when I was single and free, I can’t imagine doing that now.

I need to understand why everyone is so crazy about the Balmain x H&M collection? The craze this time is even more than the Alexander Wang x H&M collection that happened some years ago, and I just don’t get it.

I saw a video on Youtube some days ago and it was madness, the rush to grab clothes off the racks, they were not even checking for sizes and all, they were just grabbing. Most of these grabbers are not die-hard fashion fans, because most of these pieces have ended up on eBay for over ยฃ200 or more and that is a FACT. I find this so very annoying, when people who want to wear the pieces cannot get them, and people who just want to make money off the brand do get them, but I guess H&M/Balmain don’t care as long as they are smiling all the way to the bank. It is a sad time for the ‘real’ fashion lovers.

Anyways, over to you, were you lucky enough to get a piece(s) from the collection? What do you think of this craziness? Sound off in the comment section.

Thanks for reading.
