Don’t get me wrong — I love Michelle Obama, and I am deeply envious of her well-toned arms.
I also understand that our most popular first ladies are often fashion trend setters . After all, didn’t my mom take me to church wearing the little pill-box hats that were Jackie Kennedy’s signature wardrobe item?
Obama, who is often seen in skirts and dresses, has ushered in a new era of femininity, and lately, all the stores are featuring pretty cotton frocks.
I’d love to wear one, but here’s my problem — I want sleeves. Not pretend cap sleeves that are just ornamental, but real sleeves that will cover my arms, which, no matter how much I work out, will never look as sculpted as hers.
I know you have to be careful of what you send to the president and his family so you don’t honk off the FBI, but I wonder if she would get the hint if sent her, say, a collage of sleeves cut out from magazines? Or some cracker sleeves? Or maybe I could get close enough to toss a sweater over her shoulders at a public appearance and hope she likes it. She’s good pals with the queen. Maybe Elizabeth II could talk her into it. After all, you never see the British monarch without sleeves.
All I know is I will never get to wear them until she does. Please, Michelle?
