Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to Mrs-O.com readers!

The Obamas continued their annual Thanksgiving tradition of volunteering at the Capital Area Food Bank in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. For the outing, Mrs. O wore a burgundy striped sweater paired with slim, dark pants.

On Friday, the First Family welcomed the White House Christmas Tree. This year's tree is a 18 1/2 foot Douglas Fir from Crystal Spring Tree Farm in Lehighton, Pennsylvania. For the occasion, Mrs. O wore a pink and purple argyle sweater paired with slim pants and a black overcoat.

Mrs. O Wears Naeem Khan

The First Lady wore a custom black beaded tulle halter gown by designer Naeem Kahn for a black-tie dinner honoring Medal of Honor recipients at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History this week. If only we could see more!


Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony

On Wednesday, the President and First Lady hosted the Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony at the White House. Later in the day, they attended a wreath laying ceremony in honor of President John F. Kennedy at the Kennedy gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery.

On the style front: The First Lady wore a Jason Wu custom red organza tweed flounce dress and coordinating coat from the designer's Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The ensemble was previously seen at the State of the Union address in February 2013, here.


Honoring Veterans

To honor Veterans Day, the First Lady attended a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery. For the ceremony, Mrs. O wore a black wool Burberry coat with double-breasted closure paired with knee-high black boots.

On Thursday, the First Lady gave the keynote address to attendees of the Disney Veterans Institute jobs forum in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. For the event, Mrs. O wore a black short sleeve dress with pink detailing at the neckline. This dress looks familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Does anyone recall where we've seen it before?

Update: Thanks to reader Parker, who found the dress: Narciso Rodriguez from 2009 and 2010, here.
