Skip to comments.Michelle Obama dazzles in New York, wearing diamond bangles by H-Town's Katie Decker ($42K cuffs)

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.

35 grand a plate of food, 50 grand for this and the black community is lacking and applying for more food stamps.
When will the black community and the Jewish community for the most part frigging wake the hell up.
What did freeloader say?
Ah yes we all have to take some cuts or words to that affect.
Sarah wear clothes and she gets hammered even though it went to charity.
old fat arse freeloader wears this expensive get up and she’s stunning
Only in the American biased corrupt lying sack of crap media would this happen and then they try and tell us they’re not biased too.
The real enemies as the enemies and that goes for some at FOX too, the likes of Alison C, shep Geraldo, Hannity and Meygn kelly with their liberal views
Celebrating Affirmative Action
Hon, who said she bought them?
IIRC, she gets a number of items from designers as an ‘in.’ I’m surprised Hart, Schaffner and Marx went bankrupt, too, but I guess the ChiCom-Hong Kong/S Korea custom suit market is just too sweet.
That is a very awkward kiss. Did they somehow manage to avoid each others’ lips? It almost looks like it.
They shiver and coo their awed, tacit approval over this -- yet scold Sarah Palin for her (alleged) $20K or whatever worth of campaign wardrobe. My Gawd, their hypocrisy knows no bounds.
It’s all about being tone deaf once again. People are out of work and she’s flashing bracelets worth more than many people make in a year. Like she’s saying “I got mine, too bad for the rest of you”
She be stylin’ !!!!
It’s good to be Mrs. Mugabe
In primitive cultures it’s accepted to wear gold and jewels.
I don’t care.
Shiny objects ... ?
The IRS rule for public officials is that gifts - including LOANS - of items that benefit the designer or the public official requires payment of taxes by the public official on those items. The IRS came down hard on Ronald and Nancy Reagan over some of Nancy’s dresses that were loaned to her.
wheredja get that foto?
i like them too, but would never spend that
kind of money on jewelry. i think michelle
borrowed them for occasion. that being said,
i wonder why it is ok for her to borrow jewelry
to wear, and the msm went nuts when nancy
reagan borrowed dresses from designers.
hillary clinton just outright took high end
stuff as gifts. clinton gave leftovers to
a decidedly down-market Marie Antoinette
There is no warmth to that kiss at all. They can’t stand each other, can they?
I wonder how much more reparations they think they’re entitled to.
Nice to see you never stereotype...
I believe I borrowed it from another FReeper. :)
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.
Is there no warmth in their lives ever?
The rest of us need to enjoy our peas.
This is just another kind of welfare - she’s mooching off the American taxpayer and her days of doing that are numbered.
Michelle Obama “Let them eat cake......sugar free....”
But they have absolutely no business being on the wrists of the First Lady in the midst of the economic disaster her husband has inflicted on this country. She must think she's Imelda Antoinette.
Is that supposed to be a hug & a kiss? 0dumb0 & phat ass butt ugly mabelle michelle look like they don’t want to catch each other’s cooties. Now if it was a guy, 0dumb0 would be lip locked with him....hard to say about phat ass’s preferences.
BTTT your on drudge
FR thread linked as the screaming headline on Drudge?
FR seem to be doing well for itself!
wtg on drudge
re: pic-I can’t care anymore-it doesn’t do me any good
the only solace is that they are probably both miserable
if they aren’t oh well whatever
we reap what we sow I guess
Drudge is checking to see how much traffic Jim’s servers can handle. :)
Wow, he linked the FR thread.
The President and First Lady attended a DNC fundraiser at Gotham Hall in New York City last evening. On the fashion front, Mrs. O wore a black tuxedo-inspired cocktail dress to introduce her husband. Completing the look were three diamond bangle bracelets by jewelry designer Katie Decker.
Our First Lady has NO shame, does she.
Does anyone wonder whether she gives a thought AT ALL when she’s getting dressed to the actual plight of many of the people of this country and what’s going on currently?
She must truly be a miserable, vapid person on the inside.
The last Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie.
I think the cuffs are gorgeous. I am a jewelry person and of course have NOTHING near to expensive jewelry but do appreciate it.
I am wondering if she owns these or are just on loan with the idea the young artist gets more exposure.
Michelle looks half decent (as much as we can see) in this pix but my or my what an awkward kiss.
She always seems to pull of formal dress better than other occasions when she looks more like a clown than the wife of a head of state.
Thanks for thread & ping Miss Maggie! HI EVERYONE!
Obvious to me.
Trailer Trash with money - (yours and mine!)
Nah, they’re pretty fine. I would love to have one. As long as they keep living the high life, they alienate their base, the communists that is.
so is this personal property or does it get put in the presidential library?
I would say it is true however. Following the colonial era in Africa (which incidentally was Africa's most prosperous & peaceful golden era), we have somewhere between 60-80 yrs or so of black leaders ruling in extravagant luxury & opulence in Africa, while they allow the genocide & destruction of their own country & people. Personally I can't think of a single black leader who has not raped & pillaged & plundered his own country while committing or allowing for unbelieveable atrocities, genocide & deliberate starvation of his own country.
President Mugabe perhaps is the poster child for black rulers, skimming off the foreign aid to his country, while decimating, destroying & killing his own people and destroying Zimbabwe, formerly Rhodesia which was the bread basket of Africa under white rule.
Oh, oh ... here comes ATTACKWATCH!
Ok, there's one. He also happened to be coptic Christian, I believe as well.
