Dear CNN,
Michelle Obama did not invent the idea of wearing simple clothes that can be bought in a mall. There is nothing iconic about this outfit. I am wearing a cardigan and pencil skirt today and unlike Michelle Obama no one has told me that i resemble (the legit) fashionista Jackie O . I mean give me a break. 75% of women have this same outfit on at work right this very second and (understandably) none of them are making front page news. Stop wasting my time with your ridiculous stories.
Katie O.

Thank you for this! I have been thinking the same thing! Did you see the big deal they made about her outfit she met the Queen in? It was a black skirt and some pearls. C'mon!

Oh I don't know Katie..the other day I wore a pencil skirt/caridgan combo, and they rolled out a red carpet for me to walk to my desk!!!! (I guess they mistook me for Michelle herself!)

i think she looks fabulous! you never saw bush lady wearing such hip cool looking clothing...she was always so sophisticated and boring. i dont remember clinton dressing quite nice either..just the plain old boring suits.

so michelle deserves the press shes getting. she has a sence of class about her as well as down to earth.
