She’s every woman. Every woman that can afford a $1000 dollar tote that is. Making a trip to a parent teacher conference, Michelle Obama was seen sporting a Reed Krakoff tote, which by the way, is sold out worldwide simply because the FLOTUS carried it.
Ever since the Obama’s assumed the designation of “American Royalty”, the slobbering media (not just in America) has anointed Michelle Obama some sort of fashionista. I personally, just don’t see it. But whatever.
It’s funny how some days they want you to believe that the Obama family is just like everyone else; while other days they want you to know just how much of our daily lives are influenced by the power couple that is the Obama’s.
As Keith Koffler points out, Obama was praised once for wearing a $35 dollar dress on a Today Show appearance. Now she’s being lauded for selling out $1000 dollar totes.
Michelle Obama may or may not hold that much sway over the purchasing habits of women around the world, I don’t know. One thing I do know. If my wife were to come home with a $1000 dollar tote, I’d probably make sure that it was full, take it from her, and then hit her over the head with it.
