Ann Romney's $990 Bird T-Shirt: Stylish or Stupid?

The blog-o-sphere is still chirping about the bird shirt Ann Romney wore on CBS' "This Morning" on Wednesday, and the fact that it was hideously ugly wasn't even the news. Ann Romney's silk shirt costs $990, Styleite reports.



Critics say wearing the shirt -- part of Reed Krakoff’s spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection -- was a particularly foolish move for the first lady hopeful, as she and her multi-millionaire husband struggle to relate to average Americans. Meghan McCain, an MSNBC contributor, slammed the shirt on Lawrence O’Donnell’s "The Last Word."

"She needs to be a little more cognizant of the message she’s trying to put out, just given the economic recession that we're in and everything that's going on," McCain said. And this is just when we'd forgotten that Ann drives a "couple" of Cadillacs. Do you think her pricey bird shirt is stylish -- or stupid?

    Unreal.
    Last month at the Kids’ Choice Awards, Michelle Obama wore an outfit designed by New York-based, uber-expensive designer, Wes Gordon. His clothing commands prices in the thousands of dollars and can only be found in the elite stores of the super wealthy. If you enjoy spending more than $4,000 on a pair of shorts…yes that is three zeroes after the comma…then you might like this little jacket from one of Michelle Obama’s favorite designers. It’s a steal for only $2,250. Of course, we never heard one peep out of the Liberal mainstream media on Michelle Obama’s high-priced clothing.

    I'd reverse your statement. The big bird on Romney's shirt is stupid looking but I like the colors. Michelle looks like she was dressed by a 5 year old. But then, that's my opinion.

    The one thing we can probably agree on is that almost a grand is way too effing much to spend on either outfit.

    What next, the Romneys arrive at a charity event in a stretch Hummer?

    I don't think it looks bad, but, $1000 on a blouse? She must have been slumming it that day. Maybe she'll let one of the servants wash her Cadillacs with it when she's done with it tonight.

    When her husband is running for president and trying to relate to people, it's pretty stupid for her to remind the voters what an utterly out of touch obscenely rich family they are - and she did not earn one penny of it.

    I guess they are both utterly tone deaf. But then people that rich really don't live in the same world as the rest of us.

    The obamas don't have the same utterly out of touch with humankind problem that the romneys do. Both of them have had the experience of living as normal humans. It isn't that candidates for office aren't allowed to wear expensive clothing, but the romneys have this problem because neither of them have ever lived like a normal human and THAT is why they have this problem. Which is what puts them under this particular microscope.

    It's probably not fair, but maybe if romney made a few less gaffes, they might not have this problem.

    Romney had a steady jobs, including being a security guard at a Chrysler plant.
    The Romneys' first son, Tagg, was born in 1970, while the Romneys were undergraduates at Brigham Young, and living in a basement apartment.

    Romney earned his money and his education.
    Barack Obama is not from a poor family either his grandparents paid his way as well.
    Face it poor people do not go to Harvard and especially without a scholorship.
    There is no record or mention of Obama recieving a scholorship, and Harvard is too expensive to be covered by student loans by themselves.
    Romney recieved a Baker scholorship for educational excellence.

    Romney may have had a few jobs, but his family was certainly not poor, and it's kind of hard to reconcile someone who actually says, out loud, in front of cameras, that his income from speaking wasn't much money - and it was over three hundred thousand dollars - with being in touch with regular humans.

    There is a different public perception. This is not a pissing contest about who had more money. The romneys have a problem that the obamas do not have.

    Which they should because his parents and grandparent were rich enough for 3 houses and paid his way through college.
    Romneys dad paid for most of his but did not pay for Brigham Young because he did not want Romney to go there. Romney did because that was where Ann was so he worked and paid for that part at least himself. Then when he went to harvard his dad picked up the taab again because he was back on the track his dad approved.
    Obama has created a distorted perception of being a poor kid when he was nothing of the type and is just as 'out of touch' as Romney if not more so because Romney worked for his and donated his entire inheritance to charity along with taking no salary as govenor.

    As I tried to say before, I'm not trying to argue with you about the backgrounds of the candidates. The fact is, one of them has a PR problem with the public with respect to money. The other one doesn't. All of this other stuff really doesn't matter. It's about public perception. Period.

    LOL, he makes the gaffes because he IS out of touch....."Corporations are people too my friend!". "I don't know any NASCAR drivers, but I am friends with a few of the car owners!"

    Michelle Obama is very fond of and wears many "reasonably" priced lines of clothing. In fact she is often seen in J-Crew. It is just unimaginable to me how blindly married to Mittens many of these far-right Republicans are that they can't even admit that the Romney's are 100% out-of-touch dilettantes.

    First I think you have the wrong south park character as an Icon Butter would serve your tweakishness better.
    Second WOW you actually insult yourself in your own posting by admitting your an a$%hole.
    third The baker scolarship recipients are available online, on Romneys wiki page there is a link, and Romneys entire past and school records are available for anyone to see unlike Obama who is too ashamed of his to show them.
    Obama is Obviously out of touch as well he came from a rich family who owned 3 houses his step-dad was also very well off being in the Indonesian government after working for the Oil companies.
    Michell wears J-crew (pop star wanna-be) while Ann knits her own sweaters, very American mom'ish.

    I will try no more to pound into your head my point about Mittens & Annie being out of touch. If you don't see it it is because either you don't want to see it, or you are a poor assessor of character. He's a sleazoid who cares only for the 1%ers, yet you defend him. It is America and that is your right.

    Obama is a bigger sleazoid and you defend him.
    He came from a rich family of Communist sympathizers his dad was a drunk with multiple DUI's the last one fatal. He did not work duriing college so he survived on money from his step-dad who was an oil company executive, and his grandparents. He has never run a business balanced a budget or even lived on one really because more money was a phone call away.

    Romney worked as a security guard and built his business without his fathers money, matter of fact he donated his entire 100 million dollar inheritance to charity. In addition to that he did not take a salary as govenor.

    You are the one that is a poor judge of character and Obama is out of touch.
