A Fond Farewell

Dear Readers,

After much thought and consideration, I have made the difficult decision to end the Mrs. O blog. Over the past year, my personal and professional circumstances have changed such that I cannot devote the same time and attention to the blog that I once could. I continue to have the utmost admiration for Mrs. Obama - for her style and so much more.

From an idea sparked by Michelle Obama's presence at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, we grew into a vibrant, diverse community with a common interest. The information sharing and exchange of opinions over the past 5-1/2 years has been fun, inspiring, sometimes a bit controversial - but always in the spirit of good, open dialogue. Thank you all for your support and readership over the years.

Wishing you the very best,

Mrs. T

I will miss you! Your enthusiasm for fashion, style and appreciation for genuine LADIES has been a delight to share and admire. This has been one of my favorite bookmarks, especially when I'm tired of the flashy trash so often paraded in the media. It's a reminder that sophistication, poise, pride and "playing the part" will always stand the test of time. Please let us all know where you land, as we will likely follow you...
Best Wishes and Joy!

Wishing you all be best and much success in 2014.

Dear Mrs T,
I am very sad to see you go as I have enjoyed Mrs O over the years and very well done on setting it up and blogging away for a whole five and half years. I wish you the very best.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Yours has been one of the few blogs I check every morning and I have greatly enjoyed these glimpses into the fabulous Mrs. O. Thank you for creating this community and for treating us to a great lady's fashion style. I wish you all the best in your professional and personal lives!

Dear Mrs. T
I am also Mrs.O and I live in Grenada in the Caribbean. I have enjoyed your posts and was a daily visitor to your page. It has inspired me to take a new outlook on my life. I was 39 when you started the page and oh how you helped me to gracefully add years to my life.

I will miss you. God's blessings in all that you do.

Love always,
Odette Campbell

Oh, so sorry to lost this website. It was always fun to check out what Michelle was wearing.
Thanks for your work.

Mrs T thank you for the opportunity to take this journey with you. Michelle Obama has made a lasting impact on us all. Through this Blog, I have expanded my whole outlook on fashion, politics and the power of women no matter who we are or what we do. The controversy was in a small way encouraging and i was happy to see women express their opinions. I have used these fashion tips to enhance my own wardrobe and make my own statement using fashion. I think that has influenced many of my female colleagues. I wish you well in your new endeavors.

This is very sad news, but I certainly understand. It was a great blog and I will miss your posts.

Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 9:28 AM | Unregistered CommenterMrsOFan

I have truly enjoyed this site over the past five years and I'm sad to see it go. You recognized early on that Mrs. O was not just a fashion inspiration but also a cultural icon whose ability to mix high-priced couture with inexpensive pieces from mass retailers is a true gift. Her style and grace gives us all something to aspire to. Thanks so much for your work, time and effort on this site.

Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 10:01 AM | Unregistered CommenterKiki

I have enjoyed reading about and seeing Michelle Obama in her lovely clothes. She is a beautiful and dignified first lady and it is with pleasure that I see how well she has done. Thank you so much for your blog.

I just signed up a few months ago :(
This is very sad news, but good luck in all your endeavors.

This blog will definitely be a great loss.
Thank you for taking the time to devote a blog "dedicated to chronicling the fashion and style of First Lady Michelle Obama."

Will there be any chance of having perhaps a 90-day "round-up" of the "fashion and style" of our wonderful First Lady? :0)

Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 11:08 AM | Registered CommenterSoccerNana

This blog gave inspiration and hope to me on many occasions. Our first lady is a great example of bravery, dedication and beauty. Thanks for the joy and the uplift. Safe travels.

So so sorry to hear this news, but I extend my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to you, mrs. T, for the last five years. Not a day has gone by that I haven't checked in here, usually more than once, anticipating that "ooh aah" moment when Michelle appeared in another smashing new outfit. Thank you so much for opening my eyes up to this wonderful First Lady. Good luck to you,mrs. T!!!

I have truly enjoyed the review of Michelle's fashions. This blog will sorely be missed. Thank you for the time you have devoted to educating us on the world of fashion and designers. Perhaps a summary of the past five years before you go? May GOD bless you in your future endeavors.

Thank you SO much, Mrs. T for this wonderful blog! I am so sorry to hear this news, but I certainly wish you God's richest blessings in all of your future endeavors. I have checked this blog sometimes several times daily, to see the beauty and style of one of the most inspiring First Ladies ever, Mrs. Michelle Obama. You have managed to capture so many wonderful moments in the history of our country. Thank you, thank you, thank you....God bless our POTUS, God bless our FLOTUS, God bless America and God bless you Mrs. T!

Thanks for a great run. Wishing you all the best.

Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 3:42 PM | Unregistered CommenterDawn

I am so sorry to hear this sad news ;-( As a french reader, I took a lot of pleasure to learn a lot about this incredible and self assured woman through her clothes and more. And also, of course, to make comparisons between her and the other first ladies (no doubt she usually used to be the best in most circumstances). Thank U for the great job you did and good luck to you, dear Mrs T.
