Note to self: Check out Alice Temperley. This Pippa person has gotten a lot of press.
This would be perfect for one of the gardening photo-ops. |Emma Stone in Chanel.
The average AME minister makes about $30,000 a year, that's why I chose to wear this custom Zac Posen dress that originally cost me about 10% of an average salary when I spoke at their convention. It's the little details like this that remind the little people that I'm far above them.
Not fair! I want to be a duchess! | Kate Middleton's hats auctioned off for over $10,000. See more: http://www.styleite.com/media/kate-middleton-rental-hats-auction/#
What do you wear when desperately trying to get supporters to open their wallets? That's simple. A Pre-Fall 2011 Tracy Reese dress.
Another day, another Jason Wu dress. Note that this is most definitely NOT Jason Wu for Target. My skin can't abide those cheap materials.
The nice thing about HM in America is that everyone gets excited about it. They don't realize that to Europeans it's the equivalent of wearing Target, occasionally trendy but cheap.
Isn't it amazing how I can spend money? It doesn't look like it, but this Alaia belt is $2,715. I usually only wear it with cheap brands like HM or Ann Taylor because I like the irony. I call it fashion slumming.
I'm aware that this dress looks like the robe you wear while getting a facial, but this baby is a $1,295 Narciso Rodriguez number.
If I can't bring back Laura Ashley skirts, I'm at least rocking a $1,900 Azzedine Alaia belt.
I figured that I owed Michael Kors a favor since he wrote out that big check to Barry's campaign at SJP's party. Didn't you see the article in the WaPo that designers need to donate to the campaign for me to wear them?
Sure America. You can also wear this Preen Pre-Fall 2012 dress for only $1,100.
I thought this Lyn Devon Gramercy Dress was a steal at $1,600 when I wore it for St. Patrick's Day in 2012. Now it's on sale for $1,100 at Shopbop! http://www.shopbop.com/gramercy-dress-lyn-devon/vp/v=1/845524441935645.htm?folderID=2534374302100951=other-shopbysize=11688=affpgr-5391593
Going cas for the day, so I pulled out my $500 Peter Som blouse from the 2010 collection.
Easter Sunday with the fam, so I pulled out a $2,000 custom-made Thakoon Pixelated Floral Silk Jacquard dress. I thought the matching coat would be too much.
I really don't need to defend this $2,500 Azzedine Alaïa skirt + cardigan outfit. I don't care how much it is. It is pretty.
Reading a book to elementary kids? A $1500 Lanvin dress from the 2009 Resort Collection is perfect!
Just a simple trip to the grocery store, so I threw on this $250 Tracy Reese sweater.
This is a Talbot's dress. Every once in a while, I have to slum by wearing ready-to-wear clothes. Those are the outfits that the White House promotes.
Michelle: I'm wearing Vera Wang. You know, the designer of wedding dresses for famous celebs. Have you ever heard of her in Canada? You have fashion right?
Another night in the White House. Another $1300 Barbara Tfank cocktail dress.
We're at a state dinner for China, so I decided to go with the obvious: wear a British designer.
SamCam: Is that necklace chav or what? Michelle: What's with the old lady dress? At least you are closer to matching me than Jill. I'm glad you got the memo.
Just a little $500 DvF that I threw on to jet up to NYC for Barry's big night with SJP and our next ambassador to the UK, Vogue's Anna Wintour!
