When Michelle Obama delivered her address at the Democratic National Convention in September, her articulate words and sincere message really seemed to resonate with viewers across the country. But, as usual, her fashion choices also garnered plenty of attention, with her beautiful, silvery pink dress further solidifying her role as a fashion icon.
The sleeveless frock, designed by Tracy Reese, was universally praised. But unfortunately, it wasn’t available to those who coveted it. Until now, that is. The Huffington Post noticed that the dress is now up for sale on Reese’s website, priced at $398.
In true Michelle Obama style, the sleeveless frock shows off the wearer’s arms, and the form-fitting waist and flared skirt create a feminine silhouette. A floral jacquard design covers the majority of the rayon and silk dress, with more ornate, multi-colored detail along the hem. Completing the ensemble are two front pockets. Pretty and practical. When Michelle sported the dress, she paired it with pink pumps and a bluish-gray manicure, accessories that also received plenty of positive feedback.
Most sizes are still available, and shoppers are encouraged to call the company’s flagship to inquire about additional availability. So next time you’re headed to a political event or just a regular old night on the town, you too can look just like the polished, poised FLOTUS. (Barack Obama as your date not included. Sorry ladies.)
