The Look: Floral for Fall

If you think bouquets are only for springtime, think again.  First Lady Michelle Obama once again demonstrates she is (as former Essence Beauty Editor Emeritus Mikki Taylor has dubbed her)  “Commander in Chic” by rocking a white Thakoon dress festooned with pink and yellow flowers at a Tampa appearance last month.  Sharp eyes at the Huff Post and New York Magazine discovered that the First Lady has worn this dress multiple times, also proving that one of the most glamorous women in the world shops her own closet!

Mrs. Obama – who wears up and coming and established designers as well as accessible brands like J. Crew and Gap –  recently revealed her philosophy on style:  “Everything in my closet is something I love, so that I can make choices based on what makes sense, knowing that I’m going to love whatever  it is.”

Want the look without the Thakoon pricetag?  Jessica Simpson offers a similar version.
