The Obamas are off to Indonesia

After an event filled three days in India, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama boarded Air Force One this morning in route to Indonesia. The president and first lady are on a ten day Asia tour which includes these visits in India and Indonesia and is to be followed by stops in South Korea and Japan.

When boarding Air Force One, Mrs. Obama was dressed in an intricately designed beige frock. This dress featured lateral seaming, three quarter-length, raglan sleeves, and a lace up back. What’s the word for this dress? Slimming! Raglan sleeves give the shoulder frame a narrow appearance, while lateral seaming creates a long and lean silhouette for any figure. This dress looks fabulous on Michelle, as well as comfortable for a plane ride. She accented this simple colored dress by adding her bright, floral Alexis Bittar pin (available here), also worn yesterday, and a pair of matching kitten heels.

I usually do not mention the fashion choices of President Obama, as he normally sticks with his simple business suits for tours such as this. However, take a look at the president’s tie this morning. Perhaps he wanted to match Michelle today?
