Sorry all, you're going to have to put up with another political post from me.
The General Election in Britain is around the corner, so I thought I'd do a post about the politicians wives and their fashion sense's. If you are planning on voting in the Election, please don't let this post affect how you vote in any way!!!

She is the current first lady and has a bit of a mumsy style, which she dons quite well. She's mainly seen in cardigans and longish skirts, but this trend doesn't seem to be taking off that much. Her favourite designers include Erdem and Graeme Black.
One item that she does pull of quite well are belts, which she ties around her cardi's to emphasise her hourglass figure. She's recently been seen in a lovely black trench, which we all know is a staple for anyone's wardrobe.
When she first became first lady, she didn't look too good, but her fashion credibitlity has been rising, especially since she's brefriended Naomi Campbell, and threw a Fashion Week Party. She's been seen in more tailored and feminine clothing and has been wearing on the knee dresses.
I particularly love her gown here! She wore it to te 2009 Women of the Year Awards, and it was designed by Catherine Deane.
She wore this to the G8 summit, and it is something I could see myself wearing at some stage as well. I think skirts in that shape look brilliant on everyone.
I think this is such a lovely look on her. The dress is Erdem and the shoes are Jimmy Choos. She wore this to the Labour Party Conference.
Probably the most fashionable of the 3. She sticks to simple tailored pieces, and these are becoming really popular. One of her most popular fashion choices was going out in the polka dot M&S dress, and she often sticks to high street stores, such as House of Fraser and Kookai, as well as being seen in Zara shoes.
Samantha is the current Creative Director of Smythson, which is a luxery leather good's store, and is known to produce some gorgeous handbags. This means that Sam does have an understanding of the fashion industry.
She's now got a little baby bump to support while out campaigning, so it'll be fun to see how dresses. She's been seen out and about in ponchos and loose fitting chiffon tops.
This spotty M&S dress was a great decision on Sam's part. Since she first wore it, sales of it have increased and it is now completely sold out. There was, however, a bit of controversy about how she got the dress. Apparently, she called up someone from M&S to find a perfect dress for her, and this was one was completely out of stock in her size. Apparently, M&S made a custom made one for her.

The Spanish born is my personal favourite. Although she is not in the media spotlight these days, she does have really good style.
Like Sam, she's known for mixing high street (Cos), with more designer brands. Unfortunately, so is so litle on her online, that it is hard to find out a lot about her fashoin sense.
Miriam is a very high profile lawyer, so naturally her style is toned down and she is often seen in neutral colours and looking really natural. She definitely has that European chicness that I crave to have so much.
This clearly shows that she is eco friendly, with the bag taking 1000 ringpulls, and is made by free trade workers in Brazil.
Blue is definitely a good colour on her and I love how she paired a simple dress with a lovely statment necklace.
P.S. I'm away on holiday from tomorrow for about 2 weeks. I'm going somewhere where I don't think I'll have any internet access, so I'll be completely away from the blogisphere for a while. I do have some outfit posts and interesting posts scheduled though!
