The One Thousand Dollars Skirt

Tone-deaf and stone-hearted to the economic plight of so many Americans who are unemployed and on food stamps, Moochelle is wearing one pricey outfit after another on her vacation in balmy Hawaii — a vacation that costs taxpayers $4 million.
Yesterday, I showed you the sundress that cost $2,000.
Today, it’s the $1,000 skirt.
Moochelle wore this skirt on the same day she wore the $2,000 sundress. As Daily Mail recounts:
“She deemed it necessary to change for her second photo op later that day, perhaps an opportunity to show off another pricey purchase. Though the low-key event was just a meet-and-greet with service members and their families in a nearby mess hall, Mrs Obama chose to dress up in a Comme des Garcons skirt. And they don’t come cheap – a similar one might cost around $950.”
Here’s the skirt – TaDa!

I know, I know. What an anti-climax.
Seriously, without exaggeration, I’ve seen better-looking skirts that sell in Wal-Mart for $9.99.

Michelle's $1,000 Totebag

Are the Obamas tone-deaf or do they just not care?
At a time when:

Michelle Antoinette was spotted last Monday, March 7, 2011, coming out a huge gas-guzzling carbon-spewing SUV carrying this $1,000 totebag:

The teal-colored bag is by designer Reed Krakoff who has stores in only the swankiest locales in the U.S. and across world, such as 831 Madison Avenue in New York.
Michelle’s bag is the RK Ribbon Large Tote, Style #15813:

  • Hand-burnished leather
  • Black nickel hardware
  • Inside front split pocket and back zip pocket
  • Twill fabric lined
  • Height: 12″; Width: 16″; Depth: 6.5″

You too can get one at Krakoff’s website for $990, plus shipping. Sadly, the teal color is all sold out, but if you hurry, you can still get it in sepia or smoke!
Let them eat cake!
