Lady M is still a little miffed about not accompany Big Guy on the East Asia Apology Tour. And she’s been telling anyone who will listen that BO’s press would have been MUCH better if she had been there to charm the Asians as she did the Europeans.
So while Big Guy was winging his way home from his bow-wow trip, Lady M conducted her own oriental immersion experience and went out for sushi with BFF and social secretary Desirée Rogers (because if you can’t hire your best friends, who can you hire?) and Michael Smith,the new White House decorator. More on that in a bit.
For the occasion MO choose a basic black top and slacks for the blank canvas look: the better to showcase the jewel like sushi and other colorful food items: “Sake-cured cod, orange miso bread pudding, chocolate cake and green-tea creme brulee…” Because you can get sushi anywhere, but where else can you get chocolate cake?
Anyway, back to Michael. He’s a HUGE designer from the left coast, and by that standard, pretty traditional, which is good news for the Big White. Here’s a small portfolio of his work:
This one’s going to be trouble.
But getting back to sushi night: the reliable source column went on to say that Lady M and her entourage “got cheers from the crowd when they left.” MO nodded and acknowledged her faithful fans. My reflection is a bit different, but then, I’m just a mirror.
