The Obama austerity program in action: Michelle’s new $1000 purse

by editor on March 15, 2011

We’re simple guys here at IHateTheMedia.com. So simple that we didn’t even know they made purses that cost $1000 nor the difference between a purse and a tote.

WhiteHouseDossier.com has the hilarious details:

It’s a Reed Krakoff two-tone ribboned large tote, and you can get it at Mr. Krakoff’s website for $990, plus shipping I guess. But we don’t worry about shipping. Fedex it, in fact.

No wait a second, you can’t get it, because it’s already sold out, at least in the teal color she got.

Love it with the blue slippers, BTW. It just WORKS, okay?

Of course, Michelle has asked ordinary Americans to sacrifice and this is her way of showing that she can sacrifice, too. After all, she’s not wearing her $2500 second hand dress nor her $540 tennis shoes.

People bitchd incesantly about the cost of Nancy Reagan’s designer wardrobe, as well as that of Jackie Kennedy. But at least those 2 wore the clothes well, and were a positive reflection of themselves, their positions as First LADIES ( I use the term VERY loosely for Michelle) and our country as a whole. This crazy woman does none of that. Is it 2012 yet?

No, the shoes and bag do not in any way ‘work!’ This woman has no class. Breeding tells.

That is one of those save the planet designer recycle grocer bags, the ones that were recently disclosed to have elevated levels of PU36 or whatever it was in em. Quick! Look at and focus on her shoes! No curtain here… Presto!

Beautiful bag for a grotesque bag.

I think both bags are rather grotesque. I think I saw a tote like that at the 99 cent store the other day.

I agree.

Look here! That bag would make anything look Beautiful in comparison.

The fugly bag probably would look less fugly if it was someone else. I think Michelle makes that bag looks fugly. I think the bag if it could speak would agree with me.

I’ll say the same thing I say when my coworkers get to talking about their overpriced Coach handbags: I’ll bet Michelle’s $1000 purse doesn’t do anything more than my JC Penney purse does; it carries her stuff around.

Yeah, but that personally autographed copy of the Communist Manifesto deserves to be carried around in a very elite bag, does it not?

These two are like a couple of children turned loose in a toy store with a thousand dollrs apiece. They want to see how much they can spend it on and how fast. And like most children, her taste is lacking. A fashion icon she ain’t. I have had my pocketbook – only one – since the 90s and it came nowhere close to that price. If it had it would have stayed in Sears.

It is not made from a sow’s ear but it is close to a couple of them now.

Look people its not that she is fashion forward with a bag worth $1000….its that she is inflation forward and $990 is what those 99 cent reusable shopping bags will run by the time her wife Barak is done.

This bitch so reminds me of Imelda Marco.

At least Imelda could project some class that Michelle seriously doesn’t have the ability to project.

That bag is fugly and once again her friends and the mirror failed her.

Which bag are you referring to – the one with two straps or the one with two legs?

Ha, ha! Zing!

I disagree…..because George and Louise actually WORKED their way on up….

Good point Pittsburg Z!
Still, it’s funny to see people with no class think they can buy that class. Someone once said, “Money doesn’t make the man, it only reveals him”.

KimmyQueen

Exactly.

And Luise had SO much more class than Michelle. And George was smarter and less of a racist than Barack.

Hate those blue shoes, but Michelle will wear anything to steer the conversation away from her bodily dimensions.

I wouldn’t say a thing about this but for the fact she is advising me on what to eat. She’s fair game.

Austerity for THEE….not for ME.These folks are lovin’ the party!

I wonder if she is “proud” of the purse maker? Wait a second! This Reed guy had total compensation last year from Coach of over $20,000,000! Doesn’t that put him in the category of those rich guys on Wall Street. He’s a corporate fat cat!

Obama said at one time that at some point you just earn enough, right?

Talk about your lipstick-wearing pig–now she comes with clashing accessories too!

She may be color blind…

Otherwise she has some serious issues.
