Everyone is talking about the rose gold creation that Michelle Obama wore to her final state dinner. The custom $12,000 Atelier Versace gown was a departure from Michelle’s usual classic look. The shimmer of the gown against her skin and draping of the fabric was simply draw-dropping and has us yearning to recreate it! Here are some ways to get some rose-gold goodness in the Garden State!

First let’s start off with the key to this look, the dress! At Nordstrom  Garden State Plaza, I discovered this shimmering gown that is very similar to feel of the Obama dress. At $78 this is a fab way to get the look for less!


If showing some leg is more your thing there’s a mini version of this dress on sale! The Soprano Sequin slip dress in a stunning rose gold is perfect to wear to your next special occasion. For $34.80 you can wear this and totally steal the spotlight! I love visiting the Nordstrom at Garden State Plaza.


You can also get the look with a Rose Gold heel. Keep the elegant lines of the Obama look with these Old Hollywood- esque shoes by Steve Madden.  The Garden State Plaza store always has an amazing selection! For $79.95 this is a wonderful way to get the look and these can be re-styled with so many outfits!

Jewelry is another way to rock some rose gold goodness! These earrings from Neiman Marcus Garden State Plaza will add some sparkle and shine by your face and highlight your cheekbones. These are fierce! At $970 these are an investment piece that you can wear day to day and for special occasions.

Last, but certainly not least is this Michael Kors Pave’ Ring! The ring is swoon-worthy but the price is right at $75. You can add instant style and accent that manicure! Bloomingdale’s Riverside always has a great jewelry selection and this ring is gorge!
