yep.. Dutch night on HAL.. I felt like a proper Charlie.. But mum wanted the photo.

Back then, the staff used to take one of these and decorate it for you.. turning it into a work of art.. I sure wish I had mine these days.. I always wanted to frame them, as the artwork was usually beautiful.

My sweats are magenta, and my fuzzy warm socks are jade green, so the only contest I would win is for #1 fashion mistake.

My favorite dress so far...was the one she wore today to the National Cathedral. I thought yesterday's day dress was too fancy, should have been a bit more plain. And I didn't care for the white evening gown. She seems to be a tad shorter, when not in heels, than her husband but with maybe a little larger bones. What I've noticed is that the dresses, with the possible exception of the day dress yesterday, seem to make her look like she's got quite a tummy on her. Someone needs to figure out how to make her athletic frame look better in a dress!

Inaugaral dress - perfect

evening gown - not stunning enough -- kind of like a prom dress

black and white dress yesterday at church = made her look big around the stomach and hips.

As time goes on I am sure she will begin to dress with calculated style, most first ladies get the hang of it sooner or later.

She is a large (big boned) lady and tall looking in heighth. Since I am tall and big boned I am happy to see someone that I can identify with instead of the tiny little ladies of the past.

Mrs McClain always looked stylish BUT does she ever smile??? She seemed so cold and distant.

And I know this might be something I shouldn't say here but I always thought Laura was the sweetest looking woman.

Question: Years ago, when gloves were worn, because now one does not see gloves too often, did the woman put her rings on the outside of her gloves or wear them on the inside or not wear them at all?

she would have worn the gloves over the her rings..
wearing the rings on the outside would be pretty tacky.

I caught that as well the night of the inauguration. So, what was up with the missing wedding ring?

I didn't like either dress on Michelle but thought the VP's wife looked stunning in her ball gown. Didn't like her day wear much. Those black boots looked inappropriate for such an important occasion.

I think the children are absolutely adorable. The little one looks like a mischief maker! LOL

Maybe her ring is a "whopper" and she didn't want to flash it around. You know, humble is politically correct these days.

According to a few friends of mine (all of whom are black), a majority of wives in the black community don't wear wedding rings. I stopped looking for wedding rings years ago. I was told it was "a cultural thing". It was certainly news to me ...
