I've heard "Style me like Michelle Obama" at work enough times to make me take pause; well, take pause, research some of the many illustrious looks of the First Lady To Be, and then make a Polyvore.
One thing I like about Michelle's style is she doesn't shy away from bright colors. She knows that 50's silhouettes work for her and she rocks them with wild abandon. Here she is with Maria Pinto, who designs most of what Michelle is snapped in in public.
When's the last time a First Lady-ish type wore a graphic print? Right on. Apparently, wearing this dress caused a big kerfuffle because it was "only" $148 from White House Black Market--- they promptly sold out of the style after Michelle's appearance on "The View".
In this, my favorite photo, Michelle rocks her much-loved shrunken cardigan and--- leggings! I can't tell you how much I love that addition because of what it says about her--- interested in keeping up with the kids and young at heart herself.
So, keeping Michelle's love of 1950's-shaped dresses, graphic prints and bright colors in mind, I devised the following thoroughly*** Presidential Polyvore. Meow!
***according to my non-public tongue-wagging version of Presidentiality.
