Recessionista Chic

The “lemongrass” colored sheath dress and matching wool coat worn by First Lady, Michelle Obama, at yesterday’s Inauguration had the fashion community buzzing with excitement.

The dress was created by Cuban born designer, Isabel Toledo, specifically for the event and was a well-kept secret until the morning of the Inauguration. Though not a household name, Toledo has been working in the fashion industry for over 25 years and is known for her eclectic, modern designs. Her creations are available at one of Mrs. Obama’s favorite Chicago boutiques, Ikram, located on Rush Street in the heart of the city and online at CoutureLab.

Boutique owner, Ikram Goldman, is credited with helping Mrs. Obama select her Inauguration Day attire and many feel that she will continue to be a “fashion advisor” for the first family over the next four years. With decisions this good, we can only hope.

The fabulous grass-green Jimmy Choo pumps made Mrs. Obama’s outfit pop with a hint of fun. Jimmy Choo, famous for stylish yet thoroughly wearable shoes, is a luxury brand worth the hype. The company creates the highest quality shoes and accessories for women with a discerning style and an eye for fashion. Celebrities flock to the shoe company for elegant pumps, boots, sandals and handbags.

Mrs. Obama has been quoted as saying that "recessionista chic" will be the fashion for the upcoming year as women turn toward classic pieces instead of throw away trends. If this is "recessionista chic", Mrs. Obama just may be right!
