This Michelle Obama Halloween Costume Will Have Your Friends Hailing To The Chief
October 8, 2010
Let’s face it – we all aspire to be as cool and chic as Michelle Obama. She exudes this air of such femininity and pose but at the same time, can pull off blue nail polish. Her fashion highlights in 2010 have included a purple Toywatch, a mixed print Moschino dress, and this on-sale Banana Republic top.
So, why not be FLOTUS this Halloween, grab your man an Obama mask, and have all your friends hail to the chiefs? Plus – her floral sheath dresses, J.Crew cardigans and pearls are totally wearable year round. Umm, hello perfect costume idea:
First things first, you need Mobama’s perfectly coiffed ‘do. This First Lady Wig ($19.99) has it down pat.
You need a floral shift dress to nail the look – start with this pretty Inviting You to Play Dress in Blue ($59.99) from ModCloth.
You’ll need Michelle Obama’s signature J.Crew cardigan is a pretty blue or pink to get the outfit going. This J.Crew Merino cielo ruffle cardigan ($39.99, down from $88) is perfect – and cheap!
A first lady would not be complete without a decadent piece of jewelry. You can fake the regal-ness with this Faux Pearl Necklace ($7.95).
Michelle is a big fan of sparkly broaches (how First Lady of her!) so you’ll need one too. This Sequin Crown Pin ($48) will work if you don’t have a family heirloom – use it to adorn a handbag after you’re done with it!
This is purely for pleasure, but if you really want to step it up – get Mobama’s TOYWATCH ‘Plasteramic Collection’ Fluorescent Watch ($195).
Now – just grab you hubby, boyfriend or even a female friend and get them to wear this President Obama mask ($14.99). Now you’re good to go!
