The 44th President of the United States is officially sworn in and change is indeed on the horizon. It was quite a day in Washington with record numbers of freezing spectators braving the bitter DC winter temperatures to watch President Obama rest his hand on the same bible Abraham Lincoln placed his hand on back in 1861. It was a historic event, signifying how far our country has come since Honest Abe's day with the first African American male being sworn into office. Barack rose to the occasion with an inaugural address that was nothing short of spectacular putting an emphasis on a new era of responsibility, which leads me to the focus of my blog. Fashion responsibility.
Here are my picks for the best and worst dressed during the Inauguration Day festivities.
Hits - The newly inducted first family looked better than a million bucks, they looked like our nation's deficit of a trillion bucks. While they all represented like true Barack stars, my award for best dressed goes to little Miss Sasha Obama who dazzled in a sweet pink coat from JCrew's Crewcuts, punched up with a bright and bold tangerine scarf with matching gloves. Way to stand out in a crowd Sasha. I expect good things from you in the next 8 years.
Misses - Aretha Franklin took the stage to sing "America the Beautiful", but like most Americans I had trouble being moved from sea to shining sea by the lyrics because I was too moved by the monstrosity on her head. Oh Aretha. You'd better think, [THINK], think about why you're wearing that bow hat. If you wanted to make a big statement, Women's Suits has a great variety of embellished hats that would get you noticed in a Wow, isn't she sassy kind of way rather than a Girl, you tripping kind of way. I'm surprised. Aretha usually has a lot more R-E-S-P-E-C-T for herself.
Hopefully Barack will give her a Presidential pardon.
