J.Crew announced that they're going to retire the styles worn by First Lady Michelle Obama and daughter Malia at the 2013 inauguration. The New York Daily News reported the news on Jan. 22. It's indeed a sad day for fashion lovers everywhere.
The retail store is to retire the navy blue checkered coat Michelle Obama wore during the inauguration. The coat caused chaos with fashion bloggers on the Internet. Everyone wanted to get their hands on it.
That won't happen anymore. J.Crew said that the checkered coat has been a part of their line for years. They plan to retire the navy blue color, but will continue to sell the coat in additional colors.
Fashion lovers also wanted to know how they could get their hands on the First Lady's belt. It turns out that it was Michelle's idea. The retail store added that she wanted to turn the sash into a belt. They are no longer running that piece as well.
Malia's bright plum coat is no longer being sold. The 14-year-old's wool coat cost a steep $325. This didn't stop fashion fans from wanting the coat, though.
None of the First Lady's pieces are available at J.Crew. Her purple leather gloves sold out, along with her aluminum Valentia pumps. The world will just have to see what Michelle and Malia Obama will in their next public appearance.
