Michelle Obama dazzles in New York, wearing diamond bangles by H-Town's Katie Decker ($42K cuffs)
Houston Culture Map ^ | September 21, 2011 | Shelby Hodge

Posted on 09/21/2011 6:32:06 PM PDT by maggief

That was no ordinary bling on the wrist of First Lady Michelle Obama at the DNC fundraiser in New York Tuesday night. Those fancy diamond cuffs were the creation of 23-year-old Katie Decker, whose namesake jewelry line has been making a serious splash since her graduation from Texas A&M two years ago.

The native Houstonian is over the moon with the fab pub that photos of the first lady in Katie Decker are already providing. Michelle Obama's stylist picked up the bracelets at Katie's showroom in Fragments in Soho. You can see more photos of the Obamas from the evening here by checking out the Gotham Hall event.

If you've been saving your nickels and dimes, the cuffs are available locally at Judith Ann Jewels. The First Lady wore Katie's Lotus cuff priced at $15,000 with 2.9 carats of diamonds, her Gothic cuff at $15,350 with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 with 1.73 carats in diamonds.

Handcuffs might be more appropriate.

The TOTUS even tells them when to kiss for the camera.

This is going down as the tackiest couple in the WH ever — even the klinton hillbillies looked classy by comparison.

Graduate from a “cow college,” create some gaudy bling and you make a name for yourself? It’s that easy? I’m jealous.

They aren’t even really kissing.
She is not even touching him.
It is just a weird picture.
What a pig, people can’t find work and she is wearing a years salary on each arm.

Mrs. Obama’s purchase provides a telling argument for raising taxes on rich people.

She looks like she could break him in half with those arms.

And he looks like he's kissing a 2X4. That's all the sugar he gets in White House? Damn, they're funny people.

Yeah, but 42K is about the median annual wage.

http://www.ssa.gov/oact/cola/AWI.html

The national average wage index for 2009 is 40,711.61.

The article doesn’t say if MO owns these or they are on loan to her. If she owns them the Obamas are sure living large.

Most likely the taxpayers paid for the bling in some backroom way.

Well, I really like the quatrefoil one - the others aren’t bad.

But this is such an in your face move that maybe they just don’t care anymore - a la Let Them Wear Diamonds. Michelle Antoinette for sure.

astounding, yet again this corrupt media are making it out she’s a cat walk model.

And kissing like that , no passion what so ever.

The question is why is she there on our tax money?

I like them. But Michelle thinks she’s Evita Peron rather than a servant of the people.

No one expects a first lady to be dowdy. But neither is she supposed to fun around flaunting thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of jewelry either, especially when the country is in the state it’s in.

Oh, what would have happened to Laura Bush, if she came out with such jewelry during a recession.

... because wearing only one wasn't ostentatious enough!

Egads. How many ways can FLOTUS says "FU, America"?

She likes cuffs, well alrighty then.

I await the black caucus and black leaders to protest at how they are always dining while unemployment is sky high in their community

ARF

Old jessie and sharpton are waiting to get their order to march when a republican becomes president and then blame their bad economy on that.
