MObama Carries An Expensive Handbag, And That's Pretty Much Fine By Us

There’s a little bit of a flap at the moment between the White House and the Italian luxury goods brand VBH.  VBH maintains that (our favorite) Michelle Obama carried their $5,950 black alligator clutch earlier this week in Moscow.  The White House claims she used the less expensive version, priced at $875.


Guess what? I don’t care.  We should all appreciate the fact that Michelle never has an off-sartorial moment.  And in addition to the pricier things, she wears items from the Gap and J. Crew and has embraced high-low dressing.

Do we really want our First Lady to appear next to all the other wives of various heads-of-state, clad head-to-toe in Forever 21?  Yeah, didn’t think so.


If you want to copy the more affordable version of her clutch, consider this sleek option from Carlos Falchi ($175 from $350).

And if you prefer something roomier, or are simply looking for a sturdy investment bag, check out Goyard.  It’s a luxury brand with a past, and their leather goods are items you can pass on to your future grandchildren.
