Skip to comments.Saturday Sweaterday: Celebrating MOOchelle’s Half-Century Mark In Style

When I saw my email with the subject line Save the date for the Fabulous Fifty party I naturally thought we were throwing a party for all the people who have successfully signed up for Obamacare on the exchanges. How silly of me: we havent hit 50 yet.
Of course, the save the date memo was about Lady Ms upcoming half-century celebration. I realized that as soon as I got to the part advising me to wear comfortable shoes, eat before you come and practice your dance moves. Although, frankly, I think theres a racist joke embedded in there somewhere (h/t Earl Butz). I should probably mention that to our gay social secretary before this gets way out of hand.

Because we certainly dont want another one of those Duck Dynasty type controversies swirling around here to ruin the birthday party of the decade.
Anyway, Ive been shopping for the perfect gift for Lady Ms big day. Ive pretty much settled on a sweater because everybody knows Lady Ms signature mini-me sweater look played no small part in her becoming the greatest Fashion Icon and Busy Mom of all time (h/t: Cripes Suzette). Butt like the shark that must keep swimming or die, even the greatest Fashion Icon and Busy Mom of all time must keep moving Forward! lest she be relegated to the Racks of Wal-Mart category. So this year, Im mooving Lady M in a new direction, sweater wise, and could use some help choosing the perfect sweater to mark the half-century birthday. Wow! When you say it that way it sounds really...never mind.
Please feel free to weigh in on which one you like best, butt realize my final selection is dependent on the size of the loan my credit union will approve.
First, theres this wool-polyamide-elastane blend scalloped sweater by Valentino...currently selling on Moda Operandi for the cool price of $1,690.
Although weve got the light and dark shades in the correct general areas to, uh, enhance our positives and minimize our negatives, I suspect the problems here are obvious. We have already stretched the containment structural limits of titanium beyond the expected failure point. Theres nowhere to go until the Department of Defense discovers a new, stronger element.
Next up, a shimmering pure Viscose metallic sweater by Balmain can now...on Farfetch for $1,775.
It has Lady M written all over it. My only concern is that it may be a little too derivative of MOs other glittery metallica frocks.
Then theres this, from one of MOs absolutely favorite designers: Flower girl: Floral fare like Jason Wu's $1,995 embellished sweater...
Although Im worried about this one being a little too anatomical if you know what I mean
I really like this Simple pleasures: Pared-down looks like Bottega Veneta's $2,200 cotton cardigan
as well as this Donna Karan $1,995 blend that is expensive despite its simplicity
Butt Im just afraid they may both be a little too Jackie. You know...WASP-y?
So far I must say this one is the frontrunner, based on price alone: Reigning supreme: The Row's cable knit design, which took 90 hours to produce, is likely the season's most expensive sweater at $4,490.
I know: I cant quite picture Lady M in it either. Butt at 4500 Washingtons Im thinking maybe shed be willing to give it a go.
Let me know what you think. If youre not fond of any of them, or my loan doesnt come through, I guess I could always go with my fall back bottle of Crystal Champagne, which she always seems to enjoy:

So the former linebacker for the Chicago kkkBears is now officially a crone and also holds the title of virago.
To paraphrase the late Johnny Cochran...
if the hips are wide, you must deride!
I wonder what this will cost the American taxpayer.
Was it Sowell who called them “ni**er rich”? I’ll never understand how anyone without a job would vote for these frauds. Or anyone who wants to get out of the ghetto but can’t.
The First Lady is proof on one thing. Have a woman dress just right and with taste and add to that a generous smile and it does wonders. I know the political situation has outraged many and quite rightly so.
Flame away if people will, but I do think deep down the First Lady is very nice, certainly a good mother. Ok, I know she has absolutely no right to be so angry and biased against whitey. Tiz the Christmas season.
