Michelle Obama's Three-Peat Election Dress: Fiscally Responsible Or Bad For The Economy?

November 7, 2012 by Justine Schwartz
shefinds | beauty

Last night, Barack Obama was officially re-elected for a second term, and just like any milestone presidential event, his FLOTUS (and her sartorial decisions) were on display. Michelle Obama, who can’t walk in to a Target without getting her outfit picked apart, chose a brocade Michael Kors shift dress for the momentous occasion. But it wasn’t the dress itself (a magenta silk chine pintucked number) or the choice of designer (an American!) that has the blogs, including ourselves, buzzing this morning. It’s the fact that this is the third time Michelle has worn the dress publicly:

She first wore it for a holiday event at the White House in 2009 (paired with kitten heels and bare arms), and then again in November 2010 to a Medal of Honor ceremony (with a cardigan and Alexis Bittar brooch). Well, the Republicans have said that we need to cut back government spending (does that include the first lady’s clothing budget?). But, shouldn’t she/we be putting money in to the economy — aka, by buying a new dress for the big night?

So, what do you think: was Michelle’s choice to re-wear her election night dress a display of fiscal responsibility, or bad for the economy?
