Michelle and Alicia: Sisters in SOTU Style

It was a shady, shady night folks! If you were watching President Barack Obama’s penultimate State of the Union speech, then you know just the moment I’m talking about.

Obama: “I have no more campaigns to run.”
Republicans: *applause*
All: *laughter*
Obama: “I know because I won both of them.”


Damn, Son!

But the real star of the night (for me, my mother and my sister, at least) was First Lady Michelle Obama’s fly suit. The grey, nubby suit was perfection on Mrs. Obama and seemed to be made to be worn by a powerful, self assured mother of two— gasp! I had seen that suit before! Michelle was channeling the other First Lady, Alicia Florrick.

Ok. Alicia, played by the luxuriously-browed Julianna Marguiles, is a fictional character. She lives inside of the television and fabulously-armed Michelle is a real person. But I insist that this was a coordinated plan to unify the strongest woman on TV with one of the strongest women in America. Sisters in Style. Michelle and Alicia forever.

I am in negotiations to have this suit, well the jacket, really, as my very own. You can match me and get the jacket here.*

*Update: It looks like the jacket has sold out in the 20 minutes since I started this post. I am actually crying real tears.

    I’m going to miss the Obamas in office. They’ve served this country well and brought so much style and swag to the oval office. 🙂

    FLOTUS is fierce! I love her style she exudes Elegance and Trendsetter. It wasn’t until President Obama got into office when I started to tune into the State of the Union.

      Simone, she is the baddest. I’ve been addicted to the SOTU address since Bush’s second term and there is no place better than Twitter to keep track of what’s REALLY going on.

    Love this jacket. Lady Obama definitely brings the style A game to the White House. I enjoyed the speech and the shade. President Obama has been more than nice and has made great things happen despite the politics! I will miss them but I am happy he will soon retire. Phenomenal earned it.

    LOVE that jacket! I missed most of the speech, but came in just in time to catch that epic burn. Now I gotta go back and watch the rest!
