FLOTUS proved this once again last night, turning up to a military ceremony at the White House in a Rachel Roy dress she first wore back in 2009. The frock's draped neckline, fun print and mixed fabrics made Mrs. O look just as chic as she did when she whipped it out for the National Conference on Volunteering and Service four years ago.
Lucky for Obama, she managed to snag a couple of similar Rachel Roy dresses, which feature the same basic design concept but in different colors. Moral of the story? If you find a relatively cheap, wearable dress that you love, you should go ahead and purchase different versions. Now that's a first lady-approved shopping tip all of us can learn from.
