Saturday Obsession: Designers x Obama

Whether you’re a die-hard supporter or adamant foe of the Obama campaign, you have to admit: America’s leading couple knows fashion.

So it comes as no surprise that Barack and the ultra chic, designer-clad Michelle would team up with the likes of Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, Thakoon, Diane von Furstenberg, Torie Burch, Prabal Gurung, and Alexander Wang

The result: a host of campaign merch that definitely has our votes! Obama fans can own the above Derek Lam tote for $75. Most of the tees are priced at $45, but if you’re looking to make a statement, you can scoop up a silk Thakoon scarf for $95. 

You can pre-order these items now, but you’ll have to wait until next month for them to arrive at your doorstep. 

Is this haute collab a ‘Runway to Win’ as the Obama campaign believes? We’ll simply have to wait and see!

Saturday Obsession: Little Marc Jacobs’ Shirts for Equality

On Wednesday, President Obama told the United States, "It is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."

As a lesbian in a committed, loving relationship, his words (though a bit late) were a major highlight of my week. And these adorable Little Marc Jacobs shirts didn’t hurt, either. 

The tees, created for the children of same-sex parents, were spotted by the astute editors at Refinery29. The screen prints read, "If Mom says no, ask Mom" or "If Dad says no, ask Dad."

Um…adorable! But best of all, every last cent of the proceeds from each $35 tee go to the Human Rights Campaign (the biggest organization dedicated to LGBT rights). 

With Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day (see what I did there?) right around the corner, why not gift the loved ones in your life an equali-tee?
