The dress First Lady Michelle Obama selected to wear to deliver her speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention was absolutely lovely. It was flattering, well fitted, flowed nicely, and striking in color.
However, the sleeveless choice was not appropriate for the business professional setting of the Democratic National Convention. In fact, sleeveless clothing of any type is inappropriate in any professional setting.
At a time when the job market is tough, I’m disappointed the First Lady did not set a good example for women looking for a role model to help them enter the professional workforce.
Mrs. Obama, you’ve worked hard for those fit arms, but please wait to show them off in a social or casual setting.
