Melania Trump apparently wore a $1,380 shirt to dig up vegetables in the White House garden today, which, okay. I understand that she's rich, like all first ladies, and it's totally normal for rich people to wear expensive things. My amazement is with the shirt that cost that much.
The Balmain tartan shirt was "inspired by David Bowie, George Michael and Prince" and has "a rebellious '80s attitude," according to Net-A-Porter, even though, in my humble opinion, the blouse looks undistinguishable from several shirts I bought from Uniqlo a few years ago.
The reaction to Melania's blouse mostly seems to be how is it possible for any shirt to cost that much?
Melania's shirt, which is apparently dry clean only, was neatly paired with skinny jeans, converse, and cute red gardening gloves.
$1380 and it appears to be quite boxy and could use some darting for a better drape???— Seychelles_Green (@activistHistori) September 22, 2017
Anyway, she looks as happy and comfortable touching dirt as you'd imagine.
Happy first day of fall, everybody.
