Diva in the news: You can't have this!



Michelleview2_3 You want it, right?  You toootally want the black and white summer frock Michelle Obama rocked on "The View" Wednesday.

Well, you can't have it. At least not locally. The Tank Leaf Print Dress, which retails for $148, is from White House Black Market. I called the local store in St. Petersburg's Bay Walk, and the sales associate said it's sold out. The closest dress is in Georgia. BOO.

If you're a preferred member, the store will order and mail it to you. Stop in or call a WHBM to find out more. 

Miss O looked fierce. Relaxed, feminine, but sophisticated. No dickey-brooch-perm-sensible shoe-knee high political wife style of old. She's the cool mom who will show you how to shave and wear Spanx when you're good and ready.

It's akin to Barack's style, with his breezy open necklines and sport coats. Are these people vying for the White House, or going on holiday in Cabo? Really. I want whatever margarita they're sippin.'

I love White House Black Market. Their stuff is structured and well-made, but chill enough to rock when you wax about your hardcore love for bacon (see: Michelle Obama). Many of their dresses have built in bras, which is handy for doing the Cupid Shuffle at weddings. And the prints are very recognizable, even in, well, black and white. When I saw her dress, I immediately guessed it was WHBM.

The shop's a tad on the pricey side, but they have good sales. I got a denim skirt for $12 there once. Bow to me. Always check the back corners of the store for clearance.
