The Tasteless! It Burns!

It just doesn't make any sense:

1) This 1000 dollar tote bag. Why would you pay that much for something that performs the "holds stuff" function no better than a plastic bag from Wal-Mart?

2) Color of bag: blue-green. Color of shoes: blue. Honey, either match it completely or contrast it. Half a match is what normal people call a "clash".

3) Stevie Wonder called - wants his sunglasses back. Although Michelle's blindness might explain #2. Also, I notice the man holding the door for her isn't wearing shades. So that means they're not necessary and Michelle is just making a fashion statement.

4) Her blouse is half-unbuttoned, so she must be warm. But she's wearing a jacket, so she must be cold. Great. We're gonna lose some Alice androids on this one.


  1. Well you know what they say: you can take the color blind girl out of Wal-Mart but you can't take the Wal-Mart out of the color blind girl without extremely Invasive surgery...or something like that.

  2. As we say in the South, "Bless her heart. Just bless her heart."

  3. First - I can't fault her for wearing sunglasses, I can fault her for wearing bad sunglasses. Personally I wear sunglasses even on overcast days since bright light hurts my eyes. (yes I will drive down the road while it's raining - wearing sunglasses). BUT, I got myself a pair of terrific looking Oakleys and have had them for about 3 years now - they look fab (unlike others I could mention).

    Second - the shirt is sloppy sloppy sloppy. If she wants to wear a V neck look there are better shirts to wear. The neckline is dreadful.

    Third - someone needs to tell her that you NEVER wear a double breasted coat open - you just don't. It never looks right. You can wear a coat with a single row of buttons like that - never ever a double.

    Fourth - I swear she is colorblind. I can't believe how often she clashes colors - it's dreadful.

    Fifth - I LOVE bags and I don't much care how much someone wants to spend on them if they have the money. But a tote bag, no matter the material, just looks like a large shopping bag. I might almost understand it if she was actually toting something... however it looks as if she is using it for a purse. Uck!

  4. Teresa - Thanks for weighing in on this. I've seen you. I know you've got at least a normal woman's fashion sense, so your opinion means a lot here.

    Which is why you're Daddy's Favorite ;-)

  5. LOL - well, there are a few fashion rules I do know and one breaks them at ones peril.

    Can I add that the pants are about 2 inches too short... I missed that among all the other travesties in this photo.

  6. You certainly may add that. I wasn't sure what to say about the pants. The legs definitely look off, but I wasn't sure if it was because the legs were too short or if it was because they were flapping around her bony ankles like bell-bottoms.

  7. I wonder why we feel a need to remark on this.

    Its just clothing, you fashion police?

  8. No, because I hate Michelle's politics, so I take cheap personal shots at her when the opportunity presents itself.

    Strictly for my own amusement.

    I'm a small, petty man in many ways.

  9. I do it because she is touted as being "fashionable". This is clearly a travesty of the highest order.

    She is the First Lady and therefore in the eyes of many others around the world represents the US. Yet she is almost never dressed appropriately for any occasion. (evening dress for the SOTU? Colors for Memorial Services? Really?)

    Appropriately dowdy I'm fine with, appropriately fashionable I'm fine with. She is inappropriately dowdy all the time.

  10. I keep remembering Nancy Reagan's loud red dresses. That wasn't my taste, but at least the fashion sense behind it was comprehensible.

    With Michelle... who the FUCK wears a boob-belt over an open cardigan?

    There's NO theory of fashion wherein that's tasteful or sensible.

  11. Well... I have been a little disappointed in our First Lady's fashion leadership but I don't think this outfit looks all that bad. And the sunglasses? So what? Some people wear them and some people don't - at the same time.

    $1000 is ridiculous for that tote bag though. She could have used some of that money to buy healthy food for all those obese kids she says she want's to help. It just so happens that my sister-in-law gave me one for Christmas that looks very similar to that and I know she didn't spend $1000 on it. Probably not over $15.

  12. oops! I hate when I make mistakes! Grrrrr!
