We are fortunate and so blessed to be part of a generation that is seeing history in the making. On this 45th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech we are witnesses to the very first African American man to be nominated as the Democratic nominee for the President of The United States. Barack is a man of such great influence. He definitely needs a woman of equal power beside him. Michelle Obama fits the bill totally! She is not only smart and accomplished, but also beautiful and stylish. I know we've said to ourselves that if an African American woman was to ever become the First Lady, she would be incredibly stylish. Michelle doesn't let us down in any form or fashion.

Michelle Obama's big speech at the Democratic convention was eagerly anticipated not just for what she'd say, but for what she'd wear. The would-be first lady's fashion flair is already grabbing the attention of fashion aficionados all around. She's being closely watched as a possible budding fashion icon. Now how exciting is that. :-)

Michelle and her daughters all sported hues of blues and purples. Michelle's blue dress was designed by Maria Pinto, a Chicago-native designer (formerly assistant to Geoffrey Beene). She chose to accent the dress with a large pendant that came straight from her very own jewelry box. The pendant was reminiscent of Barack's rising sun campaign logo. The pendant was placed over Michelle's heart, so it might have symbolized that her speech was coming straight from her heart.

On the last night of the convention the Obama family looked coordinated but not contrived. They were all wearing a variations of red.

I doubt it very seriously that Michelle will change her style if she makes it to the White House. She already looks like a first lady; her style is so clean and elegant, she will not need to change anything. Another thing to note is that Michelle has broken tradition by wearing a print dress on such a big occasion. Fashion is what you make of it. Forget about all of the myths about fashion take a chance on style. Incorporate fashion, style, and your personal touch; and you are guaranteed to have a winning combination each and every time. Michelle is truly a Fashionista who is not afraid to make a statement. Let her be an inspiration to us all.

I can't wait to see what she wears for the Inauguration!

Greetings Fashionistas!

If you weren't there on August 16, 2008 to see the "The Dillard's Back To School Fashion Shows" you missed a fantastic treat! The day was filled with smiles, beautifully done make-up and fantabulous clothing. Make-up was provided by the Lancomb, Estee Lauder, Clinique and Sheseido make-up counters conveniently located in Dillard's West Oaks. Clothing was provided by Dillard's of course.

As the crowd eagerly awaited, energy and excitement was in the air. The music was booming and the lights were flashing as the models hit the runway sporting their back to school looks. Designer lines such as House of Dereon, Sean John, Giani Bini, Jessica Simpson and Echo made a big presence on the runway. All of the designer lines and many more can be found at Dillard's for reasonable prices.

A heartfelt thanks goes out to Lisa Etie - Cosmetic Counter Manager, Shawn Hughes - Store Manager and all of the many other Dillard's employees who helped to make this show a huge success.

I must say ladies....if you haven't been to Dillard's recently you are really missing out on some fabulous finds! A Fashionista could easily get lost in their shoe department alone.

Many of us would like to change something about our physical appearance. For some it is a nose that seems too large, for others, its lips that are too thin, and for many women, it's small or drooping breasts. Countless surveys have shown that women see their breasts as one part of their body they would like to change. The decision to have breast enhancement surgery is a life-changing one, before taking any permanent steps, it is wise to do some careful thinking and consider all options.

There are many affordable, viable options out there in the market place that can help you to achieve the appearance of perkier or fuller breasts. Natural breast enhancements can be achieved with the help of specialty bras and subtle bra insertions. Specialty bras and bra insertions are available to give you the appearance of having larger breasts.

Nubra is ideal for sheer clothing, halter and backless styles. This nude, strapless, backless silicone bra provides comfortable, ultra-flattering coverage that is undetectable under most revealing clothing. Wear the styles you want while getting the support you need. For the best fit, order your natural cup size without padding.

DIMR’s keep you covered up when you can’t wear a bra. DIMR’s are silicone nipple covers that are invisible under clothing. DIMR’s adhere to your skin using your own body heat- no sticky adhesive involved. Plus, they can be used over and over again. DIMR's can be found at Village Girls Boutique located at 2509 Rice Blvd.

Hollywood Fashion Tape is easy-to-use, clear double-stick, “do everything” apparel and body tape. Hollywood Fashion Tape’s specially formulated adhesive is gentle on skin, hypoallergenic and leaves no residue on fabrics. The clear tape does not cover up the skin’s natural color, is more discreet and fabric-friendly than safety pins. This handy little product can be purchased at any Top Drawer location.

How does it work? You get 36 pre-cut, 3-inch disposable strips (3” x ½” actual size) in each box. Each strip of tape contains a removable backing on each side. You simply peel the backing from one side of the tape, press the tape firmly to your skin or fabric, remove the other backing, and apply the item to be secured. It’s as easy as peel, stick and go!

Now here's a super idea. How about getting a boob job without going under the knife. What a revolutionary idea, " The Boob Job In A Box." Now I'm not saying you need it, but women with smaller breasts at one point or another have wondered what it would be like to have fuller breasts. Silicone inserts can add a full cup size to your bust line and feel very natural. Best of all, they're removable.

I agree with the makers of this product....Silicon inserts allow for all the fun and none of the commitment of permanent breast enhancement solutions. You can position your Takeouts under your breasts for lift, in front for a little kick, and on the outer sides for "why, hello there" cleavage. The inserts are washable just be careful not to puncture them with sharp objects.

Get ready for this one Fashionistas...This next product is sure to raise a lot of eyebrows. It's a spray that claims to increase the bust size...The beauty industry was in a tizzy a couple of months ago when Rodial UK announced it would be launching Boob Job, a hormone-free topical meant to increase cup size, it's now available at US stores like Bliss. But seriously...what I want to know is anyone naive enough to think that this stuff is going to work? The maker of this product has the audacity to charge $175 for it, a high price tag does not mean that the product actually works.

Have fun trying some of these products. Let us know which ones you find to work best. That's all for now Fashionistas.

Yes, it's that time of the year again. It's time for our children to return to school. As a parent, you're already working hard to get your kids new clothing for their return to school. It just makes sense to save money every chance you get. Those who live in or near states that offer a tax free weekend can save considerably by planning their annual back-to-school shopping on this weekend.

Join us for a peek into what's hot for the new school season. Dillard's is partnering with Delilah Unlimited to show some great fashion choices. The shows are at 12 noon and 4 PM and will feature stylish looks from Dillard's for tweens, teens, and the college scene. Bring some friends, compare notes on what you see, and then shop for all of your favorites. I will be available to answer any questions you and your guests may have on the latest fashions.

Straight off the runways of NYC and Milan, from contemporary graphic shifts to pastoral silhouettes, summer dresses of every shape and shade are taking center stage.

This fun print dress by Hale Bob has a round neckline, small flutter sleeves, a cinched waist and a mini length. Perfect for any occasion, add accessories for a cocktail party or pair with jeans for a more casual look.

Fashionistas there is nothing more feminine than a beautiful confident woman in a flattering summer frock with matching accessories.

The night life in Houston is exciting and vibrant. I have scoured the Internet, the boutiques and the department stores and I have found some hot little numbers that are sure to excite any Fashionista. It was hard for me not to purchase each and every dress.

Ahhhh the ever so popular bubble dress. This dress is so versatile. It can be worn as a dress or with pants. Either way its appeal is lasting.

Buying this fabulous little frock not only makes you look great, you are actually doing something good for this precious planet of ours. Go organic by selecting designs that use highly sustainable and earth-friendly materials like organic fibers, bamboo and recycled fabrics. Let’s make this a trend that will never go out of style. Green is the new black.
