In fact, this proves that I’m smarter than Michelle Obama. Last Thursday, my entire wardrobe, including Rockport shoes, Dockers, Izod polo shirt, and King Louie jacket, cost us less than $20.
Of course, you compromise a little on selection when you shop resale shops and flea markets, but Michelle and her hubby might learn something about reality if they shopped where we do.
