FLOTUS' $39.99 Little Red Dress

Last week First Lady Michelle Obama recognized the HealthierUS School Challenge Participants at the White House. FLOTUS sported a $39.99 little red dress. The Target Morena Collection dress was capped off with a black satin bow and a little flounce was added to give it a touch of class.

Earlier in the week Mrs Obama shared her fashion motto a roundtable at the White House with digital publishers...

"My motto is I have to feel good in it; I have to wear what I love. I try to be thoughtful about spreading the wealth: young designers. Mixing things up is important to me. But my day-to-day wardrobe choices are very practical. I'm like what's the temperature? Am I going to be sitting on the grass? Will I be playing with kids - because I usually want to." As for her shopping habits, Obama admitted, "I don't buy it if I don't love it. Everything in my closet is something that I love so that I can make choices based on what makes sense, knowing that I'm going to love whatever it is.

"I don't want to waste anxiety on something as limited as clothes. I'd rather be anxious over the issue, or worry about the remarks, or think about the veteran that I'm talking to and make sure I'm listening and paying attention; the clothes are just the secondary part or the third part of what is happening over the course of the day.

"If I'm comfortable in what I have on, that's second nature, and then all my attention can go to the people in the room that I'm with at that time, and I don't have to worry about whether something is riding up or whether my feet hurt." 

FLOTUS, displaying once again why she is effortlessly the First Lady of style.
