Michelle Obama Flashes Over $42,000 in Diamond Bracelets
Brian Koenig ^ | 9/22/11 | Brian Koenig

Posted on 09/22/2011 2:18:22 PM PDT by Freemarkets101

Michelle Obama, the most glamorous of all U.S. First Ladies, dazzled the crowd at a DNC fundraiser Tuesday night wearing over $42,000 worth of diamond bracelets ($42,150 to be precise). Designed by Katie Decker, a 23-year-old Texas-based jeweller, the First Lady dropped a few dimes on some serious bling:

(Daily Mail) - The First Lady, 47, chose to wear Miss Decker's Lotus cuff, with 2.9 carats of diamonds, costing $15,000, the Gothic cuff with 2.17 carats of diamonds, costing $15,350, and the $11,800 Quatrefoil bracelet with 1.73 carats of diamonds to the Gotham Hall event.

Damn, for that kind of money - and all the publicity Ms. Decker is about to receive - the Obama's better hope they will be getting a little kickback for Barack's 2012 campaign. Just look at that endorsement:

Joking aside: The First Lady joked with the audience as her wrist dripped with the Katie Decker designs. The jeweller may see her career soar after the endorsement

She might as well change her name to Simon Cowell and slightly turn her hand every time she takes a sip of Coca-Cola (Ahem, I mean Pepsi).

She should be dressed in sackcloths an ashes. Shameful optics for a President that is all about optics.

...the First Lady dropped a few dimes on some serious bling...

No, she didn't.

All of it was loaned...a common practice, one which Nancy Reagan and Laura Bush also participated in.

To present it as a purchase by the Sasquatch, is to perpetuate a nasty intimation that the taxpayers may have been screwed into buying this crap for her.

I do not, cannot stand the fact that the jug-eared idiot is the POTUS and he has a Sasquatch, the nasty, pushy, overbearing zero that she is, for a FLOTUS, but we should not participate in the subtle crap-slinging that this is.

I ignore very much of what she does and I realize that she has no compunctions about spending the taxpayers money, but in this case, it's off base and uncalled for.

We should pursue the truth and leave the crap-flinging to the monkeys in the cage.

Michelle purchased this stuff? Or was it donated to her?

It is bling well befitting the ‘hood except if it were literally in he ‘hood it would probably be rhinestones and gold plate so as not to be all that tempting a theft target.

Doesn’t the “Queen” have any side enterprises such as selling autobiographies or charging to speak to audiences, by which she might have legitimately raised the funds? She holds no Constitutional office, and thus is free to do things Barack could not.

Think she’ll return the loaners to the jewelry store, or will she try to rip them off like some of those klepto Hollywood actresses?

Her hope has turned out to be more than chump change.

Who knows how it came into her possession and it may be sponsor product placement for all we know.

Republicans can’t spend big money on jewelry, witness Newt’s Tiffany’s revolving credit debacle.

Loaned or not, it looks terrible—unthinking, unfeeling, uncaring—when so many Americans are suffering (which makes them happy, I know.)
Laura Bush would never have worn something so ostentatious but when you think you’re the dictator of Zimbabwe, of course this is appropriate.

Reparations!

I've seen this movie before.

It starts with the queen saying, "Let them eat cake."

It ends with the 'clang' of a guillotine.

I just started noticing that myself. I would say within the last 12 months. I heard a lawyer use it back in March, that was the first tine I really noticed it enough to remember that I heard it.

MAO (Michelle Antoinette Obama) sure has come along way from her complaint about GWB’s $600 stimulus checks...”What can you do with $600, buy a pair of earrings?”

How crass and ‘in’ an economically suffering populace’s ‘face.’

“I’m Hip”, “In with the In Crowd”, use ALL the latest terminology like “Bling”, “Optics”...

“Absolutely!”

“Right On, Right On, Right On”...

(no, 23 skidoo was WAY before my time!)

for you young whipper-snappers, that’s pronounced “Skid-ooo”, not Ski-Do, as in Jet Ski.

I agree. There is plenty she has done to criticize. We don’t need to manufacture scandals.

First Lady Michelle Obama steps out in Lanvin sneakers and they’re only $540!

Michelle Obama has taken casual to a haute new level.

While volunteering Wednesday at a D.C. food bank, the First Lady sported her usual J.Crew cardigan, a pair of utilitarian capri pants and, on her feet, a sneaky splurge: trainers that go for $540.

These people don’t give a damn about anyone but themselves.

It’s just who they are.

Wonder what the po folks who voted for this dictator are thinking now? Their wonderkid put them all out of work and is flashing his wealth. While at the same time demonizing the wealthy. Hey kenya boy, take a look in the mirror sometime.

AP story posted on Drudge.

Many up and coming and wannabe and the famous and infamous designers provide items in this manner.

For the FLOTUS to wear a particular designed dress or piece of jewelry...the advertising is such that cannot be bought.

A common practice, both with the FLOTUS and with much of the so-called "A" list celebrities.

I believe even the European royalty has done so.
