Skip to comments.Michelle O wears $2700 sweater

The first closet has increasingly become a subject of interest since Michelle Obama swept fashionably into the White House in her Jason Wu ball gown.
Yesterday, Ann Romneys clothes stole the spotlight as she wore a fashionable top on Tuesday for an appearance with her husband on CBS This Morning. Politico reported that the Reed Krakoff shirt would cost you a pretty penny, at $990.
But Mrs. Romney will need to step up her fashion game if she wants to fill the shoes of Mrs. Obama.
In March, the first lady visited her British counterpart Samantha Cameron wearing a LWren Scott sweater in a trendy bright yellow hue. The embellished cardigan costs $2,720.
Obama, widely regarded as a fashion icon, likes the brand so much that she wore a peach cardigan from the same line last week during the Take Your Child to Work Day festivities.

I must cost $5-$10 to produce......
I tell ya, I've no fashion sense. But Moochelle makes Hillary Clinton's Pantsuit look positively avant garde.
There is NO shirt out there worth 2700 dollars except if it was made from gold.
These people aren’t buying blouses , but names.
The Affirmative Action Wardrobe.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I just remember the bally-hoo that went on with what Palin was wearing. The press was very critical of Palin’s clothes, who paid for them, how much they were worth.
But, with Mooch - not so much.
No bias there, obviously. I guess I’m racist for noticing.
You can wrap an empty bag in gold leaf, it’s still an empty bag.
So? I am in my grubby, couldn’t care less clothes but will have wear my Paul Stewart suit to a meeting tomorrow.
Couldn’t care less what someone wears so long as it’s not tacky or ugly.
If I never see those stooping boob belts again, fine by me.
“You can’t take it with you”, as they say...no matter where you’re going.
Our WalMart has the $1.50, $2.00 and $3.00 racks out right now...Happy days are here again!
I am not a clothing snob, but I LUV well made clothing, shoes and bags. I am a girly girly all the way.I don’t care about names,I care about it being made well to last forever.
And my mom taught me how to shop; paying $2700 for a sweater is just ridiculous and doesn’t mean anything except you are paying for the “honor” of wearing some person’s tag...BFD!
Unless it is made out of mink and trimmed with gold, $2700 for a sweater means you been had! (I’d say “hoodwinked”, but I think that’s racist?)
Sitting and typing in my underwear - $2.99 ..........
“,,,my underwear - $2.99....”
Too much information. </LOL>
“But, with Mooch - not so much.”
“Not so much?”
How about “Not at all”, or more accurately, actually a cause for celebration of her refinement, fashion sense and good taste, not seen in years in the White House.
A First Lady of which we can all finally be proud...
There is a wing of the Smithsonian set aside for the “Fashions of the First Ladies”. There are displays for various First Ladies, with the gowns they wore at various functions.
I can’t help but think that the area for Mooch will look like a Clearance Rack at Target.
So, I let my wife walk through that display and found something else to look at while she went through. Like Eddy Van Halen’s guitar, Archie Bunker's chair, Farah Fawcit’s Swimsuit and the Ruby Slippers from Wizard of Oz.
Would expect nothing less from the Emperor's consort!!!
No matter what she wears she looks like she belongs in one of those “People of Wal-Mart” e-mails.
When you spend most of your life hating your country it shows especially in the face. All that hate alters the facial tissues.
That peach sweater she has on in the article photo looks like something you could get from the Blair catalog.
“Obama, widely regarded as a fashion icon,”
You can dress a sow in silk, but she’s still a sow.
I shop twice a year at one of our “better” second hand stores. It’s amazing what people donate for resale and lots with the original tag still on the garment. Most of my purchases for my daughter-in-law and I have the top fashion label names but I have never paid more than $20 for anything - which is my self-imposed limit. I did, however, notice last Christmas when I went on one of my sprees that there wasn’t quite as much to choose from and one of my friends who works at the resale shop said that donations, particularly of clothing, were really down. Donations of fine china, old family furniture, crystal and silver were up.
Boxers or Briefs?
Only to the press. What is that phrase about "Repeat a lie often enough ...,"?
