In a tough economy, we learn to make do with what we have. If we can’t imagine wearing a piece of clothing three different ways, we don’t even think about buying it.
Just ask Kate Middleton: The duchess is often photographed repeating outfits. Now Michelle Obama is donning the same dress twice, too.
A blog called Mrs. O, which chronicles the first lady’s style, reports that at the recent Congressional Black Caucus Gala, Obama was wearing the same Michael Kors gown (a black georgette pleated number with one shoulder) that she’d worn in June to the Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony. This time around, however, she replaced the gold-chain belt with a rhinestone belt.
“This is the first time in memory that Mrs. O has repeated a formal ensemble,” the blog reports.
We can’t blame her. If we owned that dress, we’d probably wear it to the grocery store. Just sayin’.
