It’s always a wild guessing game days leading up to a big event. What will Mrs. O don, especially when it’s a political runway up to the podium at the Democratic National Convention? Perhaps an up and coming unknown whose career she’ll most definitely catapult? (Hi Jason Wu!) A budget-friendly brand accessible to everyday Jane’s? (Hi JCrew!)
Michelle Obama‘s selection? The First Lady opted for a custom-made dress by Detroit-born designer Tracy Reese.
The dress was a hit. (And she gave a fab speech to boot.)
And like most designers capitalizing on Michelle O’s sartorial choices, Tracy Reese’s custom-designed dress is now available to the masses at a small fortune of $395 at Proper Topper, a DC-based store, in November.
Don’t live in DC? No problemo. They’re taking orders via phone.
