“In this time of crisis” (a quote by yours truly from my CNN debut), Michelle Obama is relating to Main Street Americans by keeping her style of dress at a modest price tag. Clearly, she could go out and buy whatever she wants, and even more clearly, any designer would kill to dress her for every day of the week. But First Lady Obama (Obama ’08) decides to go with a simple approach to shopping; buy a simple outfit from a simple store and simply keep it movin’! Pictured above is a picture of Michelle Obama holding hands with Senator Barack Obama at a campaign rally in Detroit.
If you recall from my previous posts, Michelle O has been sighted wearing pieces from Target, H&M and the most notorious White House Black Market dress that sold out after wearing it on the View. H&M might be happy about this sighting, especially since WWD reported an 11% drop in their earnings last week. The Commes des Garcons collection for H&M will be for sale soon, so maybe Michelle will get her hands on one of these Cotoure pieces for cheap.
Thanks NY Mag for seeing this before me!
