J Crew = Affordable? In what universe

I was watching CBS news last night and they made big mention of Michelle Obama at the G20 summit "and that she and she wore affordable clothes from the brand J. Crew throughout her husband's election campaign." According to CBS news this is what affordable looks like

It's a little hard to see but the total price tag is approximately $340.00 Obtainable yes. Affordable? I'm not sure unless maybe your husband is the president and make 200,000 dollars a year. No please don't miss my point. I am by no way trashing Michelle for her commitment to stick to a budget and buy clothes that are modest by most public figures standards. My gripe is with CBS news for being, let's say, "out of touch" with what is affordable for most of us.

I totally agree. It is like the magazines when they have the affordable sections because a blouse is under 100 bucks. Whaaa? J Crew for me is definitely one of the more expensive stores I only go to that outlet store or only buy things that are on sale. She looks great but that is not affordable by normal standards whatsoever.
