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.

Is she kissing Obama or the teleprompter? Well, actually, I guess it doesn’t matter really because they are both one in the same.

Don’t be jealous, EVERY company he or his wife have visited, supported or used as designers (think dress designer), has gone out of business. Unfortunately for this aspiring young person, her business just received the Obama kiss of death. Remember the designer for her (Moochelle) clothes? Se went bankrupt in months...

What is it with the word “youth” now? This is not directed at you personally but every news article now refers to blacks as “youths”. Apparently this has taken over now, your use of black and youth in the same sentence was redundant. :-)

Or, she could have bought three beater cars to donate to three out of work youths in the inner city to drive to find work.

She feels so entitled. I think she’d be happier taking all the taxpayers’ money like some queen. Buying three $15k bracelets at a time like this. It’s just ugly.

Her plan went awry, but Michelle Obama doesn’t mind
September 01, 2004|By Cassandra West, Tribune staff reporter.

EXCERPT

Her wardrobe, usually simple and tasteful, is no-frills. Her shoes are sensible, her jewelry minimal.

Being unable to decide on one piece of jewelry is a sign of immaturity ... rather like a 9-year-old with 16 “Silly Bandz” on at once.

I’m just wondering, because gifts received are not personal property they belong to the citizens of this nation. they should be put in the presidential library, as tacky as they are.

I’m pretty much out of the pepper industry for a while, I have a life time supply plus, in a full one gallon jar.

I’m a pickle packer now, I made and gave away 80-90 quarts of my already famous Bread&Butter pickles this year, mostly to my fellow church members. There’s talk of beatification in my church and I don’t discourage it, even though Baptists don’t beatify.

Hat tip to “JustaDumbBlonde” for the recipe.

90 quarts??? That's a bunch of pickles! :)

I don't think I've made much of a dent in my lifetime supply of habanero flakes.

Wow... For the cost of those three bracelets Michelle could have feed several families for a whole year! Her bracelets alone are only 7 grand shy of the median income over the last year for households in state of Wisconsin! And yes, her bracelets cost MORE than my husband made ALL YEAR last year! I don’t care if she spent her own money on them - that’s her right. Just pointing out yet again what a hypocrite she is...
