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.

Yes, it’s a very weird picture. Especially if you look at his hands - they look more like they are pushing someone away than embracing her.

He's pushing her away because she's blocking his true love...the teleprompter.

They’re kissing with the same authentic passion as a Chicago Rotarian visiting his first Rotary club in Rome, when he suddenly realizes that Italian heterosexual men kiss each other s a traditional greeting.

Who doesn’t kiss on the lips?

He looks sad, or scared.

She looks like she’s reluctantly doing a favor for a pest.

Damn, I clicked on Drudge - and Poof, I’m all up in here.

Great job Maggief!

The WH was to scrub those pictures because Barack has to go back to being the Warrior for the Middle Class tomorrow. And Michelle needs to go back to Not Hating the Country.

Poor babies.

Thanks for the Fabulous Post!

Nothing says her stylist “BOUGHT” them, perhaps a loan? Tho I recall Nancy Reagan being torn limb from limb for using US designers’ fashions that they gave/lent her.

Any ONE of them would have been fine (the 3rd reminds me of a European cathedral in its styling). All three together is, typically Obama, too much. IMO.

>Obama doesn’t look comfortable kissing the Mooshell.<

Reggie is more his style ... She knows it too.
Lots of talk about how Obama has been scolding her for all the trips and stuff, showing how much money they spend while the country is fiscally doomed. He says it doesn’t look good.

Probably the only perk she gets out of being the FLOTUS. She is not a happy camper.

Remember when Nancy Reagan “borrowed” designer gowns for special events and the news media HOWLED? So, fast forward to today and we got to wonder if Michelle borrowed the diamonds or did she buy them?

The recent Fast and Furious threads here are the real action tonight, for anyone who wandered over from Drudge and wonders what the site’s reputation is all about.

Look how thin he has become.

Notice that you don’t see pictures of him with his shirt off anymore? He is on something much stronger than cigarettes.
