Everyone Must Sacrifice… Michelle Obama Wears $42,000 in Bling to DNC Fundraiser

The economy may have had its first downgrade.
But not the Obamas.

In January 2009, before the president signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama lectured America saying,

“Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

Everyone but Barack and Michelle Obama.

Michelle Obama wore $42,000 in bling to a DNC fundraiser this week.
Houston Culture Map reported:

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. The bracelets were on loan for the evening; a common practice in the fashion industry. 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.

    I wish the word “bling” would just go away. It’s so…stupid.

    the ruling class is above “putting some skin in the game”. only the serf’s must sacrifice. this multi-carat display is a “let them eat cake” moment. once again the classless flotus flaunts her riches in the faces of the millions of unemployed, underemployed and food stamp recipients her husbands policies created.

    We’re surmising that these were on “loan” to MO but regardless if they are actually hers or on loan, wearing them is definitely an “in your face America” gesture!

    What a perfect couple. The Obama’s are all about themselves.

    Service to the nation – eh.
    Patriotism – eh.
    Pride in America – nah.
    Dignity – no.
    Class – never.

    No amount of “bling” can help Mooshill. You all know the old adage, “You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.” This is one prime example.

    “stylist” …. “on loan for the evening” ….

    I am too disgusted for words.

    “The leadership of the Democrat and Republican Parties has ordered every member of Congress to lie to the American people.

    Barack Obama was never eligible to be President because his father was Kenyan, which made Obama a British subject at birth with dual allegiance and not a natural born citizen as required by the Constitution.

    Congress knows that Obama is an illegal President, has a stolen Social Security Number and has forged his birth documents and Selective Service registration.

    Nevertheless, all members of Congress have been instructed to feed their constituents misinformation until Obama’s crimes are overtaken by events, namely the 2012 election.

    Our permanent political establishment hopes that, with the help of an obsequious mainstream media, the public will forget the politicians’ complicity in the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people.”

    Just change the word “Bling” and insert the name “Obama”

    DOJ $16 muffins… now there’s a sacrifice for the greater good

    The Obama’s are in politics for the perks.

  • patman

    blood diamonds… get it?

    I think that in 5 years after this odious couple leaves the White House they will be bankrupt.

    They have a ghetto sense of money management.

    I am only hoping the rest of us won’t be as well.

    WHY is everyone not clamoring for terms limits? Who cares what “it” wears or eats? Since the unions and Soros made bulk purchases of bambi’s books and threw them in warehouses, the bambi’s are rich. Who cares if she wears a $250 T-shirt or continues to eat until her junk finally bust the trunk? More important matters exist out there.

    I completely understand VIPs promoting designers. That’s a terrific idea.
    The problem comes with the timing and appearance of being out of touch with Americans who are struggling to make ends meet.

    I find it odd that while Obama fancies himself the second coming of FDR, he and the Moose with a Caboose don’t seem to follow the Roosevelts in their public actions. Look at any photographs of FDR, and his wife, during the Depression and you will get quite different visuals.

    FDR wore a worn crunched hat that gave the impression it was not new. His wife dressed in the same manner as the average working woman of the day. During the war, Mrs. Roosevelt adopted a uniform styled dress, showing that she was working for the war effort like every other wife in America. As it was one of the hardest economic times in America, no one wrote, or talked about, what designer Mrs. Roosevelt was mooching off of this week.

    The Obamas seem to have no problem flaunting their status, living high off the hog, while 14 million Americans are unemployed and the rest of us pick up the tab.

    Lapdogs celebrate Mooch(Ain’t she cool) but seems to me Gingrich buying jewelry on credit was presented a little differently….
