Saturday encore ~ The King of Soul

This post is from eight years ago...

The inaugural hoopla has died down and it's back to business in our nation's capital, 
but I wanted to pause just once more for a little reflection on the day.

Looking back now from a different angle, let's take a moment to remember 
the fashion statements. There was Michelle in her lovely gown, 
the girls in their darling J.Crew coats and scarves. And then there was Aretha Franklin
in her millinery splendor. Lordy, I loved that hat. And I never want to forget 
how resplendent it looked against the backdrop of that historic day.

So I thought I'd let the King of Soul try it on and post it here so I would have a lasting souvenir.
