Doesn’t everyone wear a $300,000 outfit?

Vanity Fair just put out a piece that priced out Cindy McCain’s outfit from Monday night at the convention. You ready for this?  Pricing it out piece by piece, the cost of the outfit was between $299,000 and $313,000!  

From the article:

Cindy McCain
Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500
Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000
Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000
Shoes, designer unknown: $600
Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100

I can totally see why they would call Obama an elitist.  I mean, sure, I figured the suits that he wears cost at least a half-a-million dollars.  Right?  I’m sure he goes into his favorite haberdasher and says, “I’ll take the one with the pinstripes.  Can you break a billion?”

Seven homes and $300K outfits… real ‘down-to-earth’ folks these McCains are.
