Mail Bombs: Malia and Sasha Obama’s Election Day J.Crew and Chris Benz Outfits, Julissa Bermudez’s X Factor Finalists Party BCBG Fringe Skirt, and Emily B’s Airport Topshop Pink Aztec Print Midi Bodycon Dress!
By Claire

Happy Friday!
It’s sample sale season my friends, and everyone from Nordstrom to Alexander Wang to Helmut Lang (!) is discounting their duds. I’m about to head into the city to do some damage before our Fashion Bomb Staff Dinner tonight (stay tuned for pix on Intagram @FashionBombDaily). But first, let’s solve a slew of Mail Bombs!
A lot of you were more interested in Sasha and Malia Obama’s Election Day outfits than you were in The First Lady’s Michael Kors look:

Shelly wrote, “They all looked SO beautiful last night. Any details on Sasha’s outfit and shoes? I’m loving that green and she looks about my size.” KBS typed, “Can I get some deets on Malia’s skirt?” Nikki added, “I was wondering if you know what the first daughters wore on election night. They looked so stylish!”

Like their mom, the girls kept it modest, with Malia in what’s been widely reported to be a J.Crew silk organza skirt (similar to this) and Sasha in a sweet emerald skirt from Chris Benz’s Spring 2010 Collection (previously worn by her sister).

Both girls apparently wore J.Crew flats. Recreate both of their looks with these pieces:

Next up, Shane types, “Please help me find the outfits on Adrienne and Julissa. They posted this on their Instagram and I’m dying to know where I can find Julissa’s skirt? Thank you fashion bomb!”

Yep! As we reported here, Adrienne wore an A.L.C Cullen Colorblock Dress.

As for Julissa, she belted a $148 Modie Crochet-Fringe Skirt from BCBG Max Azria:

Get both their looks here:

Nicki was on Media Takeout when she saw this picture:

She wrote, ” This dress is perfect for the warmer months! Any idea where I can get one or something similar? Thanks in advance!”
We all know Emily saves on her separates, frequenting ASOS, BCBG, and the like. This particular $64 bodycon is from Topshop’s Summer collection:

It’s sold out in pink, but Topshop does indeed have the same print in Burgundy for the winter months!

Get it here.

Sam says, “LOVE this outfit, where on earth can I find these boots!?

Miranda Kerr paired a $585 Alexander Wang Rubberized Tweed Dress with Hermès over-the-knee boots and a Givenchy Antigona bag. Love this look, too!

Quita writes, “I recently saw this picture of Ciara’s boots and I instantly fell in love, deeply in love.”

.. I saw them again on one of her dancers. I usually can find things on my own but I can’t seem to find them. Please help.”
Not 100% sure as the picture isn’t clear, but it looks like Cici could be wearing these Agyness Dean for Dr. Martens over-the-knee boots:

If that’s close enough, get ‘em for $325 at
In a wardrobe query, Sherly says, “Where can I find something like this but in black? Please help!!!”

Yep! Hope these work:

In an e-mail titled, “Short Girl Problems”, Ayonna says, “I see that knee high boots and oversized sweaters are a big trend now, but how do I pull these trends off being a mere 5ft without looking weighed down? Thank You.”

Hey! Not every trend is made for every body type! But as with everything, it’s all about balance. If you’re going to wear an oversized sweater, pair it with close fit pants and pumps.

If you must wear thigh high boots, try rocking it with a mini or, again, with close fit pants and a tunic or a hip length jacket.

There’s always a way to finesse something! If you ever have doubts, hop on Google and find celebs with similar body types to yours. See how they play with proportions and go from there!
Now for a few Unsolved Mail Bombs!
Dana says, “Malaysia Pargo was wearing this top on a recent ep of BBWLA please help me find it. Or similar.”

Sandra types, “ I Love this look on Brandy during the Black Girls Rock event. I know you posted on these shorts before but who are the boots and shirt by?”

Lastly, Chris says, “What sunglasses is 2 chainz wearing in his “luv dem strippers” video?”

Mr. Chainz tends to wear frames from VintageFramesCompany. I didn’t look, but my guess is that they’re old school Cazal.
If you know the exact brand, leave a comment!
I’m off to enjoy the day, I hope you do the same.
