Upstaging The Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony

This post is also available in: Spanish

PresidentialMedalOfFreedomThere’s been a flurry of activity here at the office ever since Isabel was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama! Sure, she is concerned with learning all about her fellow awardees and being able to address them personally. Sure, she’s proud that the award is the highest honor bestowed on a civilian in this country. BUT, mostly, right now she is worried about what to wear…So far consultations have occurred with various fashionistas—or, more appropriately, friends we consider fashionistas because they are so cool—around the country, and while it isn’t appropriate to wear white after Labor Day, let’s just say I think she settled on the white.


I have been promised a-behind-the-scenes guest blog from Isabel’s six-foot-tall, gorgeous granddaughter, Nicole, complete with photos. I asked Nicole what she is wearing to the party and she wrote back the following: I am wearing a black dress that goes to my shins, tight fit but pretty conservative, long sleeve and turtleneck but there’s a cut out back. I’m also wearing black stilettos and RED LIPSTICK muahahaha!

Hmmmm, I predict an upstaging!

PS. The ceremony will be live-streamed on on Monday, November 24th at 1:45pm ET (10:45am PT).

    Isabel: Something more “latino elegant”. You know what I mean. You don’t need to be extravagant but, elegant….!
