New campaign: Get the First Lady a MN-made dress
Expect to see a lot of yellow at Twin Cities boutiques in the coming months. Yellow has already been declared the color of the year by the Pantone Color Institute and First Lady Michelle Obama cinched its fate Tuesday, by wearing a citron dress and jacket for Inauguration Day. Dare I confess that I didn't instantly love the ensemble? It seemed a bit awkward on first glance, but grew on me throughout the day. The color was flattering and unexpected. Love that she went with a dress rather than a suit, and the fact that it was embellished was a subtle nod to fashion without being over-the-top. Plus, the fact that it was designed by little-known Isabel Toledo had our own Joy Teiken jumping for, well, joy. She's just gotta get the first lady in a Joynoelle dress!
