Some people just don't get it.
Political pundits are up in arms over Michelle Obama's not so budget friendly outfit she wore to Buckingham Palace on Friday.
In case you missed it, the fashionable FLOTUS stunned in a J Mendel Resort cap sleeve jacket and ivory silk J Mendel chiffon pleated skirt to chat it up with the equally fabulous Duchess of Cambridge.
So what’s the big deal?
MObama's ensemble cost just shy of $8000, which is nearly double what the average American household makes in a month!
We love Michelle’s style, and it’s possible the $6800 jacket and $1050 skirt were loaned to her by the designer, since he is one of her faves. But even if she did buy it, gurl works hard for her money!
We’re torn on this issue. What do U think?
