Politico Suddenly Fascinated With Women's Wear

Politico hasn't cared about the cost of First Lady Michelle Obama's wardrobe for the past three-and-a-half years but now their sartorial interest is piqued due to Ann Romney's entry into the presidential arena. Earlier this afternoon Politico devoted an entire page to Ann Romney's blouse.

I'm serious. Read the below in your best Derek Zoolander voice:

The bird print top, made by Reed Krakoff costs $990, a saleswoman at the designer’s store in Manhattan told Styleite. The piece is part of the Krakoff’s spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection.

A publicist for the line told ABC News that they “had nothing to do with” Romney wearing the item. “She must have bought it from Saks or Bergdorf’s, we definitely didn’t send it to her,” she said. Romney wore the shirt (but not the matching pants made to go with it) during an appearance on “CBS This Morning” with her husband, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

I paid $1,500 for a 3/4 length Burberry Trench Coat in NYC, when I worked there in the early-80s. I traded-in a perfectly-good $95 London Fog Trench Coat, and was always very cautious while wearing that expensive Burberry coat.

Ah, perhaps the truth is beginning to emerge...and that truth is that the intellectual content of politico is equal to that of Olberman.

I could use a new pair of work boots. Steel toe would be nice.

“...when I worked there in the early-80s...”

That was the 80s. I’m retired now, and as soon as I get my former business sold, I will do just that, t.

“They” are having to talk about Moochelle’s wardrobe after slamming Ms. Romney. But, of course, they are sure to lie and say Moochelle also shops at Target.

I bought a pretty nice leather coat at a truck stop for $57.00.

Nice deal! Wish I could run into one of those, sometime. I’m just not in the right place, at the right time, I guess.

Nice. I’m looking for some good steel-toed sandals.

Remember the time FLOTUS wore a $200 shirt while painting? Politico doesn't.
