obama style

Word is out that West Coast decorator Michael S. Smith will be POTUS's official White House interior decorator. Michael S. Smith Houses from Rizzoli showcases Smith's "traditional yet not pedantic" style. He has a consistent ability to draw together eclectic elements, good for inspiration, even if you – like me – consider his overall taste conservative.

yellow coat


I bought this coat the other day at French Connection and I love it so. Mine has toggles instead of buckles - much better.
