Michelle Obama in Ports 1961

Posted on May 07, 2011

Shelley O wore a smart little Ports 1961 dress at a Mother’s Day event in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC and it’s setting off our Fashion OCD.

She looks really great. Love the dress. But all we want to do is reach out and adjust it for her because it looks askew in almost every shot. Her right shoulder isn’t actually in the shoulder of the dress, which throws off the neckline and causes T Lo to blink rapidly and look away, biting their lips.

Love the brooch and shoes, even though they match. We’ve resigned ourselves to the idea that over-matched accessories are back. Personally, we can take a brooch that matches the shoes over shoes, belt, and purse all being in the same color. And speaking of which, that’s quite the championship belt she’s sporting. We’ve also resigned ourselves to the idea that Mrs. O and T Lo are never going to see eye to eye on the belt issue. She favors big, bold ones and we will always opine that she should stick to smaller, less obtrusive ones.

God, we’re cranky this morning. You’d think we hate the outfit, but we actually love it. It’s smart and crisp; we love the white trim and the pleats in the skirt. A perfect day look.

But man, that right shoulder is making us twitchy.
