Lady Michelle Obama makes low cost look good
June 21, 2011 So how does a First Lady get lots of attention?
Entertain a queen? Give a presentation to hundreds of school children?
Give a commencement address at West Point? Yes, however, as First Lady you
can get even more attention by wearing "regular" clothes.
Michelle Obama and the President took a
weekend trip recently and we all took note that
Mrs. Obama was wearing a $30.00 dress
from the Gap. We already knew she as a Gap fan from the time she wore a
$10.00 Gap T-shirt when out to lunch with Nancy Reagan.
Michelle Obama would like us to get on
board with her
nutrition program and stop eating pizza
and fries, and there is nothing wrong with that, except we would have to
give up pizza and fries. Just as important as her passion for
proper eating, though, is the fine
example she sets with frugal clothing choices.
Mrs. Obama always seems to pull off
fashion and lower cost. For example, she still pulled off looking like a
First Lady on the Today show back in
February in a $35 H&M dress!
One suggestion we have for the First Lady. We envision
Michelle Obama sitting at the dinner
table with the President and kids coaching them on the value of eating
their broccoli and carrots. Why not also give the President some insider
tips on frugality which he can take back to Congress and share with them!
Tip for getting great deals on clothing.
Timing your purchases makes the biggest difference if you are shopping for
new clothes and shoes. Generally, there are huge clothing discounts on
Black Friday and at the very end of each season. For instance, you will
find much lower prices on summer clothing at the very end of summer!
