She Feels Your Pain – Michelle Obama Sports $6,800 Jacket to London Soiree …Update: Jacket Cost More Than What Average US Family Makes in 1 Month

by Jim Hoft

The liberal media was all upset that “elitist” Ann Romney wore a $990 top during a May interview on “This Morning.” Yet this same media cheered the fashion and style of Queen Michelle Obama whose taste in sweaters cost her over $2,000 a pop.

But, yesterday Michelle Obama outdid herself.

Michelle Obama wore silver-and-white J Mendel for the evening soiree at Buckingham Palace.(Daily Mail)

The Embroidered Cap Sleeve Jacket costs $6,800.
Just a drop in the bucket.

The jacket cost more than the average American family makes in a month ($4,284).

And, she does this as Americans continue to suffer through a deep recession and record unemployment.

Michelle feels your pain.

You can't expect the Queen Of the United States to go out in Walmart clothes now. Seriously, I wonder if she actually buys those gladrags or do the hoighty-toighty labels give them away just to get their names out there?

By law, if they're given to her by a foreign source, they have to be reported to the GSA and fair market value must be paid to the Treasury.
If they're domestic, any gift not from a foreign government official is considered a domestic gift. Domestic gifts to the President and/or First Lady may be disposed of in any manner the President and First Lady wish. If they want to keep a domestic gift, they do not have to purchase it from the Government.
Any gifts retained by the President and First Lady that are not from a close relative – including foreign official gifts that they keep – may have to be declared in an annual disclosure report to the Office of Government Ethics.[2]
The President and First Lady may have to pay federal taxes on the appraised value of gifts that they keep.

Here's a guess: The Wookie's mother "receives" these clothes and hands them over.

She knows she only has a few more months left to go on unlimited, major,'money is no object', shopping sprees and she will make the best of it.

Better count the Whitehouse silverware and china once they leave.

I'm more concerned about the nuclear "football" than I am the flatware.

Except that jacket was on loan like when you see stars on the red carpet at the academy awards. The jackets is not available yet and the designer gets the best world publicity by have the first lady wear it.
