Today's post is Obama...Michelle Obama. Don't worry .... this isn't going to get political. My theme is beads after all! As an aside, however, I will say, that in my many, many, many, many, many, many years working in Washington, D.C. in the restaurant industry...I had the pleasure of dealing with the president and his wife on several occasions (pre-2008), and I found them to be absolutely lovely people.
But let's get back to the subject at hand. Beads. I don't know if you've noticed or not, but Mrs. Obama has sported some pretty fabulous beaded pieces over the last couple years! I love her fashion style, but I especially love it when she adds a dash of beaded fabulousity to her outfits.
She likes her some pearls.....
But check out his necklace with the draped pearls! LOVE!
How cute is this simple strand of pearls with a little flower power!?
And what about this bold teal-y pearl piece she totally rocked!!!
Now the next two pieces I don't think are beaded, although they appear to have some beaded elements. This one is just spectacular, in my humble opinion:
These earrings are great too:
Inspiration comes in so many places. While I don't typically get inspired by strands of pearls, Michelle Obama's varying pearl accessories are very inspiring. And the other pieces are definitely priming the pump of my creative juices!
Tell me, who inspires you?
