The Meghan Markle Effect

Meghan Markle, a soon-to-be American Princess, is having a huge effect on the fashion world. Items she wears will sell out the same day, with women all over the world loving (and wanting to emulate) her California cool style.

Meghan was recently seen in Black Halo, one of my favorite brands. She wore the infamous Jackie O dress, which has been available in a myriad of colors for almost a decade, and is the brand's original "claim to fame."


I originally bought the Black Halo Jackie O Dress in 2011, and blogged about it in September of that year.

Today, since Meghan made the dress so popular again, I decided to pull it out of my closet.

Comparing the me of today with a version of myself from almost seven years ago is a little strange. I have more lines on my face, more meat on my bones, and my hair is darker and longer, but overall, I think I'm holding up well. What do you think? Who wore it best? Michele 2011 or Michele 2018?

One thing that hasn't changed? My pose. Ha!

Have a great weekend!
