Skip to comments.Did The Wig Hats Do Her In, Or Did the Florist Run Off With Them?

Okay, Im going to make this as quick and painless as I can.
Yes its true, Lady M axed the Big White florist. No, not because she was white, although she was. It was because she and Lady M just grew apart. When Lady M hired Laura Dowling in 09 everything was fine as her tastes still ran towards the classics.
Which was fine because florist Laura Dowling was also known for her classic floral arrangements.
Butt then, as happens with so many relationships, one partner evolved and the other didnt. In this case Lady Ms tastes grew more sophisticated over the years and began to veer towards the avant-garde.
Because nothing says avant-garde like a tight, short, dual-print pleather shirtwaist, with kitten heels.
So the breakup was inevitable: Lady Ms new modern and clean aesthetic:
just no longer meshed well with Lauras fussy style
You can see now, cant you, why Lauras definite French style clashed with the new MO aesthetic? Gone too, was the tired old classic dining room, with all those paintings by old dead white guys on the walls.
In was the modern design, muted color family room where the only color was provided by the modern art of Rauschenberg,
butt more importantly, a very important painting by the African American artist Alma Thomas, Resurrection.
If youve ever painted, you might recognize the painting as derivative of clean, unfussy style of a color wheel blending exercise:
Butt I digress: You can clearly see why Ms. Dowling and her fussy, white privilege floral arrangements had to go -
Now that Lady M has come into her own style and demands something more modern - and if I may say so, more
All of which is a long way around to explaining this rather unfortunate, uh, incident, when leaving Cambodia:
Buddha's Revenge from the Earl of Taint h/t Gerard, who never misses nuthin
Oh, and one last thing: this newfound aesthetic of MOs does not stop at floral arrangements, room design and fashion. Her new-found love of all things modern and unfussy apparently applies to her own personal look too. Did you seen our new do on Jeopardy last night?
H/T Clarice, who wonders if the wig hats did her in, or if the florist ran off with them.
Thats all Ive got.

She looks like a bowling ball....
The new ‘decor’ in that room is ghastly... nothing is right for that space and especially out of keeping with the beautiful chandelier. The whole BS color scheme looks like crap... completely without elegance or taste.
The last time I posted a descriptive comment about moochelle it was deleted by the watchers, so I'll just say Mochelle__________________________________!!!
In so many of the photos Michelle is seen in dresses walking or standing with her legs far apart. Not very ladylike. You really see the difference in the “behind” photo you posted.
agree, the rooms are like a cheap furniture store with no class and the paintings are hideous.
One of my favorite Moo photos.
Or, perhaps, she’s earned the nickname “Butch”?
Joan Rivers was spot on.
I guess it’s our cheesy, hotel-room-looking, IKEA WH, thanks to the least elegant and LEAST poised FLOTUS we have ever had.
Dem two hos on da lef cood-it picks a sack ah cotton, tween em, much les chase down a monkey for bushmeat dinner in da WhiteyHut.
Yep. Looks like Ikea.
You can take what the Obama’s know about class and put it into the navel of a flea... and you’d still have enough room left for an aircraft carrier!! :)
The furniture is exactly the same as the first photo, so I’m not sure why you said nothing works or are making comments about IKEA. It is the wall, window, and floor coverings that were changed in the room, and that are hideous. The furniture is fine.
Suddenly, crazy Al says;
"S-say, Don, there sure is something familiar about that bowling ball."
To which the terrified Don replies
"Oh my God! That bowling ball, it's my wife!"
And the lesson we learn from this story is...
Next time you place your order, don't forget to say, "No anchovies please"
I’m sorry... I don’t recall using the word ‘furniture’?
What do you have to be sorry about? You didn’t decorate that room, did you? IKEA is a furniture store in case you didn’t know.
“In so many of the photos Michelle is seen in dresses walking or standing with her legs far apart. Not very ladylike.”
The obvious explanation for why she’s not lady-like is because she’s probably not a lady/woman/female. There’s a reason Hussein calls her “Michael” in private.
I’m real clear on IKEA... and they sell décor as well... which is what that looks like... mass produced ‘decor’
