PLEASE VOTE IN RUSH LIMBAUGH’S IMPORTANT POLL AT THE END OF THIS POST…
It’s not as if we haven’t seen Lady M sport this look before:
So once again we find ourselves faced with the question, “What would Jackie wear?”
While I can’t answer that question definitively, I believe I can say with certainty, “not this.” Ever.
Well, perhaps the oversized sunglasses.
Butt I don’t see her choosing any other part of this ensemble. Especially the baseball hat. A lady of her time, when Jackie chose to cover her head, she favored pill boxes:
Or, for really casual outings, perhaps a casually tied silk scarf.
Which may have served as an inspiration to Lady M’s own silk headscarf look:
And while I can’t picture Jackie in that blouse, she might have liked the floral print. After all, she practically put Merimekko, the Finish fabric design house, on the map when she bought 8 of their dresses during her husband’s campaign in 1960.
Jackie in a then unknown Merimekko sundress, picked up on a Cape Cod shopping trip. And they’re still in business, 50 years later! Now that’s an icon.
Just like Lady M’s magic touch in putting Maria Pinto on the map, before she was forced to file bankruptcy and close up shop.
Butt I don’t think Lady M’s floral shirt is an authentic Merimekko, as it only cost $10 according to “leaked” sources. Since the whole point of this “sighting” was to be seen shopping in the downscale emporium - just like one of the peeps who will be handing over “$3 or more” for a lotto ticket to win dinner with the Won. So I’d say J Crew is a good guess.
And because our intent was what I call “Slo-fashion” we left our $1000 Reed Krakoff tote bag at home,
in favor of our downscale tote from Banana Republic (possibly an unfortunate branding choice at this stage of our interminable recession). The Banana bag was last seen leaving Rio in March with Lady M, who was apparently under the impression that its orange-yellow shade coordinated with the green-yellow shade of the stripe in the famous beach umbrella dress:
The banana bag does go nicely with the shopping cart though:
Butt it still doesn’t work very well with the lemon yellow shell; not that it matters that much when doing a little impulse shopping at Target. It’s not like Lady M’s on an official state visit to a foreign country or anything. Plus, it easily accommodates our morning supply of life-saving anti-blood sugar crash meds.
So here’s the narrative: we just ran out to pick up a few necessary household items that staff never remembers to pick up, and wouldn’t you know it: AP photographer Charles Dharapak, just happened to be there too, picking up a few items of his own for his ever expanding portfolio.
I’ve warned Lady M to be very wary around old “Sure-Shot Charlie” though. I have it on good authority that he’s a contributing photographer to this new best selling book:
So if things get ugly, don’t say I didn’t warn you:
MICKEY MOUSE POLL
Moments ago, Rush Limbaugh said that he would pay for a poll to find out if Mickey Mouse would beat Obama. Coincidentally, Plouffe-Daddy has just commissioned such a poll. In my official, trusted and valued role as MOTUS, I hereby reflect that poll here for your voting enjoyment. Polls will remain open until 11:59PM (EST) Sunday, October 2, 2011. The results will then be sent to an unnamed, butt highly reliable liberal accounting firm for overnight analysis and “adjustment”. The results will be posted right here Monday morning.Remember, as always, Chicago rules apply, so vote early and vote often!
