dress up: how i would’ve spent the rnc’s money.

By now we’re all well aware of Sarah Palin’s obscene shopping spree intended to refresh her wardrobe. Apparently, she was instructed to purchase 3-4 suits, and ultimately the Republican National Committee ended up with a $150,000 in its lap. So, inspired by her inexplicable ability to blow through this massive amount of cash at a moment’s notice, I present my selections — should the RNC happen to hand it’s credit card over to me. At a measly $24,630, the grand total doesn’t even begin to make a dent in the conservative minx’s spending binge.

  1. I’m so glad you did this. When I read that those morons spent $10,000+ at Macy’s but just $800 at Barney’s, I knew it was all over….

    In related news, can you please start a weekly feature where you dream up outfits for Michelle O. to wear for the inauguration? Week 1: Thakoon custom-made ballgown + J. Crew cardigan; week 2: Narciso Rodriguez purple sheath; week 3: Richard Chai x Target with 35 brooches….You get the point
