You know, some people would be envious of Michelle Obama. I mean, she is First Lady of the U.S. But I really don't envy her at all. There's a lot of stress and expectations. People expect many things from her. She can't make any mistakes because she represents the President. And when she's outside of the U.S., it's even worse. Because she represents America.
I'm not into politics at all (and that may be a whole 'nother discussion why not) but I am into fashion. The President and First Lady were in Europe this week, spending some time in England. Out of all things to talk about, the press focuses on Michelle meeting the Queen, her etiquette, and her clothing!
There's one sweater that got a lot of criticism. (Quoted from Time Magazine:) "Then Thursday morning she was off to the Royal Opera, dressed in a sequined, patchwork cardigan, the kind of goofy outfit that in another context could get a teenage daughter eye rolls from her baffled parents."
I actually like the sweater. I think it's really cool and original. When I first saw it in the pictures, I thought, hey, i'd like to get myself one of those! Only problem: it costs $800!!
(and notice that it only comes in small and medium... let's say you're a size large, G-d forbid?)
What do you think?
