Well, it’s a new dawn, and a new day, and a new era in America as the Obamas head for the White House. Some pundits are already comparing the Obama administration to the Kennedy "Camelot" years, and liken Michelle Obama to Jackie O. Whatever the next 4 years bring us politically, Michelle Obama is sure to bring her sense of style to Washington.
With all that said, I actually have ANOTHER Target-Obama connection for y'all today. Check out the the Erickson Beamon brooch Ms. Obama wore front and center on her dress (seen here with daughters Sasha and Malia) back at the Democratic Convention in Denver. The brand - named for designers Karen Erickson and Vicki Beamon - has been announced as the fourth partner selected for a jewelry collaboration with Target. Erickson Beamon creations usually price out for several hundred dollars, but of course their Target collection will be offered at a much kinder price point. Look for the Erickson Beamon collection to debut at Target on Valentine’s Day 2009.
