Oh Hello Jackie O.

Michelle Obama in Jason Wu at Home States Inauguration Ball

After almost two decades of drab skirt suits, finally there is some style in the White House.  All during their campaign the Obamas have been compare to the Kennedy’s and Michelle has had the the privilege of being compared style-wise to Jackie O.  Well hello Michelle O.  Everyone has  noticed Michelle’s style.  Even a male friend of mine who wouldn’t know a hemline from an empire waist commented, “That Michelle, I like her style, it’s sassy!”   Working at BCBG, I had the privilege of sending Michelle– I don’t think she wore the looks, but still.  While election night’s Narcisco Rodriguez’s number was a little questionable, Inauguration day and night outfits more than made up for it.

It’s a New Day!

Swording inI’ve just returned from DC and needless to say, the energy there was amazing.  My friend Callie, over in Buenos Aires summed it up best, “The whole world is soo ready for this.”  Just being in the streets of D.C., there was just a frenetic energy.  Everyone was so excited, so positive, I’ve never seen anything like it.  Even the attendants at the supermarket seemed to smile a little more.  I know I may even be being paranoid, but people seemed to actually smile at Pat and I as a couple as well.  D.C. has always been called the politicians Hollywood… I call it, the UGLY Hollywood, but Hollywood and politics combined.  Obama’s position as the rock star politician was confirmed as everyone from Beyonce– an inaugural favorite– to Sting flocked to D.C. for this event.  The concert at the National Mall was amazing, James Taylor, B, Usher, Jack Johnson, to name a few.  Too bad I couldn’t go to the Obama girls’ concert where Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers serenaded them.  Jay-Z gave a free concert….  D.C. was also just a lot warmer temperature wise.  As Brooke said, being there at this time is a must.  It’s almost the Woodstock of our generation.  There were tears in my eyes watching Obama being sworn in.  I’m still definitely in disbelief that this is the image of the Free  World’s first family.

Peace, Love, and Happiness.

Separation of Church and State

JUST KIDDING!  I’m definitely not going to tackle that serious issue.  But that’s how I explained my distaste for Obama-frenzy to my friend Heather, a reporter for NHK, which for those of you who don’t know is like the CNN or BBC for Japan.   As I am Heather’s live source for all things poppy, she’s mine for all things political, and I provide her with great outlandish quotes and soundbites.  When you wake up in Heather’s house, you wake up to MSNBC, and one morning, groggy, I said, “I’m sooo over Obama.  I believe in a separation of church and state.” (more…)
