The continuing exploits of our very own Michelle Antoinette:
The latest controversy surrounds a $2,000 designer sundress the first lady wore to church on her $4 million Hawaiian vacation. That’s right – a $2,000 muumuu; the damned thing didn’t even have sleeves. Michelle wore the unassuming frock to church to worship the humble birth of Jesus.
You remember Jesus? He was the one wrapped in swaddling clothes, placed on a bed of hay in a manger as many years ago as dollars made up the cost of that dress.
Besides appointing herself the guru of healthy eating and then dining at high-calorie Shake Shack, the only thing more inappropriate than donning designer duds for Jesus’ birthday was when Michelle wore $575 Lanvin sneakers to ladle out soup to the homeless at a food bank.
The current cause of the ruckus is a flimsy white/striped number from Sophie Theallet’s Resort Collection, which, at the time it was purchased in late 2009, cost between $1000 and $2000. For 2012, similar pieces from the newest Resort collection sell for that and much more.
Therefore, it appears as if “1,960 dollars less than I need toward another Sophie Theallet sundress” might be Michelle Obama’s answer to Barack’s most current question: “What does $40 dollars mean to you?”
Ah, and who can forget Michelle telling us: “The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system…someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”
