Ever since it was revealed that first daughters Sasha and Malia Obama wore outfits from Crewcuts, the J. Crew clothing store for kids, I’m sure interest in the brand surged. But when I read an article praising Michelle Obama for shopping at Crewcuts, saying that she was able to find trendy clothes that weren’t too expensive, I had to wonder if mainstream Americans would agree with that assessment.
I browsed through the site a little bit earlier today and saw that they sell silk taffeta dresses for $158, a “cymbal dress” for $248, and a silk taffeta tartan for $228. I don’t know about you, but these are not prices I’d be comfortable paying for a couple of growing girls!
Jeans at Crewcuts cost anywhere from $29.50 to $49.50,which again is more than I would pay for kids jeans. Sure, if they were in high school and basically done growing, it’s a bit of a different story, but that’s not the case with the Obama girls.
Look, I get it. The Obamas are the first family and as such they’re much richer than average people and therefore can spend differently. But I wish these idiotic reporters would stop saying stupid things about how Crewcuts is “affordable”. I’m middle-class, and I would NOT pay these prices!
