Malia Obama was recently spotted out and about in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. She wore a trendy Moschino denim jacket that cost more than most of us earn in a month. But Malia's frugal parents, former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, reportedly keep the teenager on a shoestring budget.

Other than an expensive Alexander Wang shearling coat and a pair of 3.1 Phillip Lim Boots (retail $695), Malia's dresses on a budget.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Malia wears pieces from Urban Outfitters, J.Crew and online retailer Asos. Not exactly high end brands.

So when we spotted Malia's friend wearing that same Moschino jacket, it made sense. Malia borrowed her friend's jacket to shut up the fashion bloggers who say she wears the same shoes and coats repeatedly.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    At 43, I will borrow something my gf has and she will say- Don't you dare buy one, when you can wear mine.

    And furthermore, as MOST parents of teens know, they borrow and loan to the friends all of the time and it has nothing to do with lack of money of parents not wanting to buy it----it just is.

    TRY AGAIN!! And kudos to her parents teaching her that just because you have money, doesn't mean you have to spend it all.

  • Reina1718

    maybe malia lent it 2 her friend

  • ShelbyMoore

    Does she have black friends?

  • Mrs. ??????????

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

    Who says the friend wasn't borrowing Malia's jacket?

  • klwbaby

    I see Necole Bitchie and Malia have something in common.....

  • stav

    Thank you, she's infatuated with a teenager!

  • Jen_no_juice

    Sandra you went from stalking this child to stalking her friends too???? Smh so sad on your part

  • Yoni7

    I don't like the jacket period. It's (sometimes) something about blue and black together on certain clothing that gets to me.

  • SuperScooper1

    Girls share clothes...Next!

  • fcksimplemindedppl

    sandra, asos sells expensive clothing as well. at least she is a frugle shopper that doesnt get caught too much up in designer. fact remains if she wanted to spend SPEND SPEND she can...... futhermore who sits and write a blog post about a teenager fashion choice. you're lonely and bitter you staying reaching for pluto

  • fcksimplemindedppl

    preach

  • Yoni7

    A pic is worth a 1k words.

  • MzJamaica

    Sandra you always say kids are off limits but you take every chance to bash this family. Why you mad though? You too can live in peace and harmony if you stop being negative and write these bias articles.

  • Anunnaki

    Is Pluto the furthest planet, if not Which one is...lol

  • bklyngirl11233

    That's what I said!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Pluto ain't a planet no more, not since 2006. It is a dwarf planet now. CTHU....but Sandy still be reaching for it.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Sandy's love of bashing them, when they are clearly paying her dust?!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Or a "Hug Me" Jacket.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Yup, one pic of anything OBAMA is a whole blog post to her.

  • Mel

    Or maybe her friend borrowed the jacket.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Or possibly, they both brought the same jacket...lol

  • Anunnaki

    lol

  • Wile E. Coli

    Poor girl always looks miserable.

  • Cheese eggs

    It's creepy

  • Lady

    I'd rather her not spend a bunch of money on clothing. What sense does that make? You can't resale it and get your money back. That's one thing that I never understood about celebrities. They act like its career suicide to wear the same thing more than once. It's not. It's dumb to buy an outfit for every day. They are normal people. I have been wearing some shoes and boots for years. Nothing wrong with that. It's normal. And she should be on a budget. It's not her money.

  • Taylordanes

    Yah they are doing something positive with their lives and they are uplifting ??

  • Yoni7

    #bringbackbeyonce

  • SayWhatNow?

    So what?! Its not like they can't afford it and kids borrow/wear their friends clothes even when you tell them not to. I buy my two boys plenty of clothes and they always end up wearing the same shit over and over. Which reminds me....if I see a certain pair of shorts again they are going in the trash!

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Hi ??

  • Carrington

    And we know SHE borrowed it because... let's be clear, the jacket FITs Malia... so, I would be inclined to believe that the friend was the borrower.

  • 2brefrank

    Or the friend that borrowed it from her. Ackin' like you know her closet! SMH! Real rich people usually don't care about clothes though.

    I know some who repeat all the time and could give too cares but their bank account is on swol'...AND..when its time to step out they do so and look better than everyone in the room. Just money all over their bahdeee! loll

    Leave MALIA ALONE i feel violated FOR HER! #FREEMALIA

  • stacee

    Trump crazy ass about to start WWlll and you worried about if Malia jacket is a loaner!

  • Sexy CJ

    Malia’s parents.......former President Barack Obama and former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama.......reportedly keep the teenager on a shoestring budget.........#Malia Keep Doing U.........

  • Harlem

    You too pressed about this young girl! Find you some business and leave this TEENAGER alone! You too damn old to be so consumed with a child. Get yourself together Sandra!

  • Harlem

    THIIIIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Priorities all kinds of out of order

  • 2brefrank

    You gave her one of those verbal whoopin's like the church mothers! LOL It's the truth though! There are too many Malia posts.

  • Lisa daniels

    No, that what happens we crazy people who hate your parents feel the need to talk ? about you since they can't get at your parents

  • Harlem

    I was just thinking that ASOS definitely sells high end brands. Sandra surely shops in bargain basements so she wouldn't understand. Pardon her ignorance

  • Yoni7

    Somethin'. LOL

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I love it!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Well in her particular case, yes. Meanwhile her parentals give 0 faux! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9988c70ea586c80e93cb52e8b83c9fa507cb53b544fcd6f6ddf77a6ba9387213.jpg

  • Lisa daniels

    Yeah, but it is a sick obssession.

  • TOO REAL

    Do you have proof of this or is it just your Obama hating again.

  • PrettyBrown28

    I wear the same things all the time too. It's called common sense and financial responsibility. ??

  • SumthinSweeter

    Love this...

  • iWasteTime

    I think the Obama's (who are in Tahiti together by the way) need to get her more security. This is crazy, Like why 3 posts a week about a teenager going to work everyday and what she wears? She was raised well. She lives within her means, hangs with regular folk and bothers no one. What's the problem? Kylie is the same age and doing THE MOST. Post on these young girls with body, and self esteem issues. Where your 19 with multiple surgeries and looking like a totally different person and the dangers of it.

  • JENNYJONES1

    SANDRA FORGETS SHE IS AN OBAMA AND SHE IS IN THE PUBLIC EYE SO I'M SURE STORES AND/OR DESIGNERS WILL GIFT HER ITEMS JUST SO IT CAN BE SEEN ON HER IN PUBLIC. AND IT'S OBVIOUS THAT JACKET IS WAY TOO BIG FOR THAT LITTLE FRIEND SO I'M SURE SHE DID THE BORROWING NOT MALIA. SMH!!!......JENNY JONES!!!

  • Wile E. Coli

    You mean like with Ivanka and Trump's wife and son ?

    Sandra keeps coming for this baby and I am sick of it!

  • Harlem

    Just tell me where I need to come and I am there! Ain't nobody above a good verbal lashing! LOL

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I concur! I'm just confused as to why they are reporting that it was "supposed" to go to Korea.

  • Harlem

    Sandra just needs to leave this child alone. If she focused more on being a better blogger and brand herself as more than a Trump Troll she too could get a few free items.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Never trust American Media during military operations. Or any media for that matter.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Malia borrowed her friend’s jacket to shut up the fashion bloggers who say she wears the same shoes and coats repeatedly.

    Um, she is headed to a prestigious school and working at a prestigious company and her passport has probably been renewed due to the pages being filled....but you think she cares what you and your cronies say. You give yourself too much credit and you and your cronies arms must be tired of patting yourselves on the back. #DOBETTERSOON

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Aint' nobody giving Sandy anything other than NOFUKKS and ain't paying nothing but dust.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    That's a given! I guess my real question is, are we supposed to be that dumb?

  • Wile E. Coli

    There is no reason for the US military to go to Australia. Trust them, they're far from stupid. Give it some time.

  • JENNYJONES1

    EVENTHOUGH I MIGHT NOT LIKE SOME OF THE STUFF SANDRA SAYS PLEEEEAAASE DON'T GET IT TWISTED B/C SHE IS STILL ONE OF THE BIGGEST BLOGGERS AND HIGHEST PAID. SANDRA GETS HER COINS WHICH IS WHY SHE DOESN'T GIVE 2 'F's ABOUT HOW WE FEEL WE SHE BAITS US BY TALKING GREASY. LOL!!! SHE'S NO F00L.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I never heard they went to Australia....

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Girl calm down.....this was a joke.

  • Wile E. Coli

    That's the latest. It could easily have to do with a carrier group waiting for others to get to the area before sitting there attracting missiles on its own.

    I am here with you *Michael Jackson vc* - the black one

  • Lisa daniels

    What?

  • Guess Who

    LOL. WTF?

    Who the jacket belongs to isn't the issue here.

    The real issue is your mental state as of late, Sandra. Are you ok?

  • Wile E. Coli

    really?

  • Guess Who

    You know if Sandra doesn't like someone, she'll say off the cuff shyt all the time.

    Apparently she's found her Bash Beyonce replacement.

  • Guess Who

    LOL you speaking real...whether you was joking or nah, it was the TRUTH!!!

    The HATE is for ALL Obama's....smh

  • Shanese

    Her parents are worth over 60mill and she wants to say she borrowed it from a friend? Sandraaaa stop reaching

  • Shanese

    Lmfao

  • Ms. Cree

    And if she did SO WHAT?! This is what young adults do and I'm sure she could get the jacket if she already doesn't own it.

  • Ladyvil

    These blogs, smh

    Nothing but jealousy it seems. I rebuke that.

    If you're a grown a$$ woman hating on a child your life is already miserable and meaningless!! Sandra, I'm speaking directly to YOU!!!

  • EBuzzB

    how about she let her friend borrow her jacket and if she did, who cares. She's teenager. Her parents are rich, not her.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    so umm two rich girls can't buy the same jacket, so umm Malia couldn't have loaned the white chick her jacket, so umm
    it's impossible that the jacket belongs to the former POTUS daughter Malia......next i guess you'll say Malia stole the jacket from the white chick...sigh!

  • Tewanna Havesgrove

    Amen

  • dontgetblocked

    Does she have any black girlfriends??

  • cheechee1x1

    Borrowing clothes is a rite of passage for teenagers. It's how we learn not to loan clothing in adulthood. I still am mad at my friend for getting mud all over my white pants and not cleaning them before returning them. Lesson learned.

  • dj_jamil xXxX

    do she have any black friends,,, or she on that Michael Jordan, no ni99a policy?

  • KB

    Yea I clicked, and of course as I expected...This is petty at its best. This is what u call blogging Sandra. I can't even count the ways with u anymore! Ughh

  • Da realest

    Lol yo parent's hit you with that too???my parents ALWAYS let me know THEY had money not me...i learned quick as an adult that the way of living I was accustom to was not cheap

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Let Malia AND the Obamas live... They've taught their children that brand names don't make the person. The Obamas have successfully outdressed and outclassed most everyone that HAS worn signature top brand names by having this thing called Fashion Sense. Don't bully this young woman into feeling like she has to have the most expensive things or she doesn't look good. Do better!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Does that really matter?

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Maaaan I took all that for granted, the cost to get my hair done every 2-3 weeks, nails, clothes, car insurance!!!! OIL CHANGES!

  • Shanese

    How would you know that? Have you looked into her bank account? Either way her parents could get it for her if they wanted or she could get it as a gift for free from designers seeing as she IS a celebrity kid

  • MzJamaica

    Ms Rose, every article you have written on these kids have never been in the best light.. i like your blog and I respect what you do because you are very informative at times.. but call it what it is.. and mi still got luv fi yuh (patois) #riseabovetherest
