The Alana B Couture Spring 2011 lookbook was released last week. When I saw her clothes at a fashion show in October, that was my first time seeing them up close and personal. I am continually impressed by this local South Carolina designer’s work. The dresses are always fun and flirty. They remind me of a tropical locale and are very reminiscent of Roberto Cavalli.

Last night I went to the South Carolina Society Ball at the Smithsonian National Museum of Air and Space. It was fun, but I was ready to go because my feet were hurting, and I knew that I would have to get up at 6 am so I could get ready for Barack!
This morning I got up around 6 am and got ready to go see Barack. Dad slept in and Mom and I left the hotel around 8:15. We only had to walk 6 blocks down the street but the line for our standing tickets was halfway down the street, it didn’t move for what seemed like days. Then we finally shuluffled, not shuffled but shuluffled, into one 15ft opening in a gate, and then we went through a huge security gate that that had 15-20 sections. Then we waited for the ceremony to began.
I thought both preachers were too long and the other stuff like Aretha and the poet lady ok, but I liked Itzhak and Yo-Yo Ma and the people who played with them. I like Obama’s speech. It was really long too, but he said things that I think needed to be said. I thought it was so sad to hear all those people booing Bush and clapping when Marine 1, the helicopter taking him away from D.C.,but I clapped too. I am glad he is gone. But on to happy things. Yay OBAMA!!! Yay OBAMA!!! I can’t believe this happened, but I have to because I was there. I saw the Obamas, the Bidens, several past presidents and vice-presidents, the snipers on the roof, the crowds. I saw it all.
