According to Michelle Obama, her daughters want cash and macaroni and cheese for Christmas. I know these girls are only one Kevin Bacon removed from the president, and the first lady is a queen, so I say this with no disrespect, but that’s total bulls***. Sasha, 14, and Malia, 17, probably want what other teenagers are asking for, but their mother, philanthropist rapper, most likely had to put a political twist on their public lists so the crazies didn’t accuse the government of spending tax dollars on denim.

So if Sasha and Malia don’t really just want pasta and dough, what is on the top of their private wish lists? While I personally don’t have their BBM screennames (because the Kardashians and the Obamas are the only ones left in the world using BlackBerrys), I went to their peers, fellow teenage girls, some of the hardest people to shop for (or pry any information from for that matter — seriously, these women speak in a made up language and don’t know how to use adjectives) to find out what the first daughters are actually lusting for.

According to my 17-year-old sister, all she wants is Gucci Guilty, the Italian brand’s fragrance. I assumed it was because she’s a fan of Harry Styles, who loves a floral suit, but she really enjoys the scent. She’s also requesting “sunglasses and boots and stuff.”

For more specifics, because as much as I pried my sibling wouldn’t open up, I went to her chatty friend. She also wants “sunglasses and boots and stuff” (they literally both wrote that) but elaborated that Illesteva or Ray Bans are in high demand. While over-the-knee boots are the hottest style of the season according to Polyvore (searches are up 89 percent), Generation Z seems to want ankle and calf-high boots more, with Frye boots stomping down most high school hallways.

Polyvore data also supports what these young and crazy kids are hoping for courtesy of Santa Claus. Based on boards created by users, designer sunglasses, statement ponchos, olive anorak jackets, black cross body handbags, and lightweight puffer vests are the most coveted items.

But don’t blame FLOTUS for giving the wrong answer, it’s a right of passage for a teenager to lie.
