Channeling Chanel

MO and I headed over to the Department of Energy the other day to tell them what a great job they’re doing (that’s one of MO’s official FLOTUS job responsibilities – thanking everyone – even if she doesn’t know what they’ve done to deserve it). In this case though, I think it has something to do with blocking the additional development of carbon emitting energy sources.

She wore –against my strong advice to the contrary – one of her favorite black and white ensembles: a Moschino  suit with one of her fun brooches.

mo moschino I’m not taking the flak for this, since I made it clear that - even with my transformative powers - this hand painted fashion forward  look of her favorite Italian job was not going to photograph well. Despite all my efforts, it would still come out looking like a classic Channel suit on drugs.

But she wanted to wear her favorite pin, so there was no talking her out of it.




The whole incident made me a little nostalgic for those day when America was still a shining city on the hill. Does anyone else remember 4% unemployment?
