Had a chance to chat with Philadelphia Daily News columnist Jenice Armstrong Monday about Michelle Obama and her purple dress from last Tuesday. Its still got tongues wagging. She quoted me at the bottom of her column today! Once again, the full name was name checked. It’s funny because I wrote as Danielle C. Belton for so long as a reporter. It’s going to take some getting used to seeing my full name in print. But I like it.
“The thing with Obama is authenticity,” pointed out Danielle Celena Belton, who runs a humor blog called Black Snob. “You honestly feel like she dressed herself. She wasn’t scripted. She was wearing what she felt like wearing. It wasn’t about fitting the traditional mode.”
