This is a big week for repeats. Check out the appearance on CBS Sunday Morning http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-3445_162-57582892/michelle-obama-cherishing-her-platform/ Mrs. O looks like summer in a Tracy Reese dress she wore for the Easter Egg Roll two years ago: http://mrs-o.com/newdata/2011/4/25/on-a-roll.html The dress is prettier this time -- it looks less starched and the drape is more flattering.

I hope one day we’ll see a “how to” DVD by Mrs.O – Tips on how to
have beautiful glowing skin, make-up tips, exercise that works and the
effects it has on our well being etc. - how she maintains her beautiful figure!!!
We do see from her fashion choices that we can combine just about any
accessories and different colour tops, scarves etc. works well together. She just warms my heart with every picture.
This stunning colour combination is a conversation piece, so unique. Have you noticed, how many of her choices lately, can be worn with different colour shoes, purse, jewellry etc. and still blend amazingly. Mrs. O you are just a glowing gift of confidence and example and we love it.

This isn't one of my favorites...and those bangs could use some trimming...

This is a great color block outfit and I'm glad she dropped the pin. I love how her wardrobe keeps getting better with each go around, she's got a great style team!

This picture would be nicer without the woman staring daggers at her.

@ Kathie,
LOL, I don't think the lady in the photo is "thinking" the way the photo looks.

I'm with Katie on this one. The lady who is "hawking" Mrs. O. definitely should have been cropped from the picture. Thinking or not thinking, her image in the picture creates an unpleasant distraction.

...The dress and Mrs. O. look fantastic. The First Lady seems to know just the right moment to do a repeat. Impeccable timing!

I am surprised that she wore this outfit.....looks like a uniform and unattractive. She has been wearing such nice dresses....wrong choice.
