Michelle Obama shows a little shoulder

I always feel a little awkward going into certain situations with body parts showing. You know - church with spaghetti straps, a wedding with major cleavage, a bar mitzvah in a miniskirt, a court hearing in pleather chaps and a tasseled bra.

But Michelle Obama says relax. Michelle Obama says be cool. Michelle Obama says, "Slap on the body shimmer, baby, it's the White House!"

Just look at what the first lady wore to An Evening of Poetry, Music and the Spoken Word in the White House East Room on Tuesday.


Her shoulder, which a million lateral raises will never EVER earn me, is all exposed and gorgeous. Her blouse is completely boho and SPARKLY and makes me want to peck it like a Mourning Dove in a puddle of spilled oil. Her earrings are major.

Only complaint here? I wish her pants went to the floor. Deal Diva Nicole, on maternity leave, would have my back. She hates capri pants. I just think this length and width of pant is really hard to pull off. Nine times out of ten, it has the mystical stumpifying power of a lumberjack on roid rage.

Nonetheless, she gives me inspiration to show a little skin whenever I'm having second thoughts. Next family baptism, I'm leaving the cardigan in the car! Woo! Party!
