Arms of Steel Still Need a Nice Drape Every Once in a While

Okay, let’s be honest. If we had been in the car this morning driving to work together, we might spend two seconds talking about Obama’s pretend-State-of-the-Union-Address (it was actually an Address to the Joint Session of Congress, which sounds, if possible, even more boring than the SotUA.). The rest of the time we would talk about Michelle’s arms.

We aren’t the only ones. Google “Michelle’s arms” and see how many hits you get. Being a person of amble jiggle in my upper arm region, I am not too excited to see her going this route. I fully agree with the NYT blogger who disapproved of her going sleeveless to what is essentially a business meeting (with the entire country on the conference line). Plus, it’s February. Sleeveless in February is never comfortable to watch, I don’t care if you’ve got the arm chiseling of G.I. Jane (which Michelle kinda does). Double plus—the thing took place at night. Girlfriend. Have you not heard of pashmina? Get the woman a wrap.

If this is February, people, it’s going to be a long fashion season. I’ll give her credit for her good choices so far (expect for the crepe paper thing on inauguration night that made her look like she escaped from a homecoming parade float) but really, I do not want to start bare-arming it in the winter months. If this keeps up, she’ll be setting fashion trends that have us all in our skivvies by May! My skivvies aren’t ready for that—are yours?

  1. Save the pashmina wraps for those with less toning. If you've got it, flaunt it. You go, Michelle!
