michelle obama :: part-time recessionista

i like to get my j.crew and banana on just as much as the next girl - in this case, the next girl being the first lady. the most press she's gotten so far is re: her penchant for "budget" clothing and edible gardening.

sidebar :: today's trendcentral says that michelle's garden is the first presidential garden since eleanor roosevelt's WWII-era victory garden!

check out her london outfits so far...

my picks are outfits 2 & 3. the gold number is jason wu and azzedine alaia, and the pastel number is j.crew. with pearls of course!

i especially love how she's pulling a carrie bradshaw with the alaia belt!

you can dress like michelle for the "bargain" price of just under $500 (not including choos)...

$298 (sold out online!)

$158 (sold out online!)

item # 14273
