Let's bring common sense back to the subject matter shall we?
No let's begin by posturing about the level of income one would need in order to justify $50,000 in lingerie...
I am going to ball park that the average person would spend maybe 2% of their annual income on lingerie.
Considering that lingerie has a specific purpose and isn't worn all the time.
Of course this 2% would also vary from person to person, but 2% isn't a bad number to work with.
So example A;
Woman A earns $40,000 per year and decides to buy herself some lingerie to arouse hubby... $800 worth.
Let's be moderate on our lingerie (not diamond crusted with gold thread).
So a Victoria piece can go for about $300 (I would assume), so $800 worth is 3 - 4 pieces. More than enough to last out the year.
Woman B earns $150,000 per year and goes through lingerie like we would underwear.
So her budget for lingerie is actually double Woman A's... So that gives Woman B a budget of around $6,000.
More than enough to last her the year.
Now, getting back to Mrs Obama... What kind of DISPENSIBLE income would she need to EARN to get $50,000 @ 2%?
$2,500,000... Half that if she is at 4% - $1,250,000.
Now, I know the figures are out there somewhere... Does Mrs Obama earn AT LEAST $1,250,000 dollars?
I think not baby puppy.
