Michelle Obama: An Inauguration Style Round-Up

With the inauguration right around the corner, naturally our thoughts here at TBF turn to—well, fashion. Yeah, we’ve had enough of the politics to last a lifetime and with a stylish (and budget conscious) First Lady like Michelle Obama on her way into the White House? It’s like we won the style icon lottery (and we’re open to an ambassadorship to say, France, if you’re listening Mr. O). If you’re a regular reader, you know we’ve given Mrs. O lots of fashion love over the last several months; in honor of the big event, here’s a round-up of our top Michelle Obama posts:

Michelle Obama Fashion: A Budget Style Retrospective. This is only the beginning, we’re sure, of a beautiful fashion blogger/first lady relationship . . .

Michelle Obama in H&M Dress. The dress that kicked off the budget-fashion girl-crush we’ve been harboring for Mrs. O ever since.

Michelle Obama: The View Dress. The kind of publicity White House/Black Market could have only ever dreamed of before this episode . . .

Michelle Obama: The Look for Less. We loved this look (which about 60,439 other media outlets also pounced on) for the bold color that now defines Obama’s look—and we also love that the belt and necklace showed up again on multiple outfits, meaning she knows how to get some mileage out of great accessories – holla!

Michelle Obama’s Election Night Dress: What Did You Think? Readers weigh in on the controversial Narciso Rodriguez dress that got even more buzz than McCain’s “that one” comment.
