Thakoon Revisited

The First Lady spoke about the Joining Forces hiring initiative for military veterans and spouses in an event held in the East Room of the White House on Tuesday.

For the event, Mrs. O wore a Thakoon inside-out dress from the designer's Fall 2008 collection, first seen at a 2008 presidential debate here. Red pointed toe pumps completed the look.


Olympic Spirit

The First Lady has arrived in London! Mrs. O began the day with a visit to the US Olympic team in east London, wearing a red peplum top paired with a red and white print jacket. From there, Mrs. O moved on to the American Ambassador's Residence, Winfield House, where she hosted 'Let's Move London' joined by David Beckham. For the second appearance, Mrs. O sported white pants paired with a two tone blue athletic top, piped blazer and sneakers.

Update #1: Thanks to reader "lisa" who notes similarity between Mrs. O's red top and the Zara double cloth top, available here in black and white. Thanks to reader "CarolAnn" who has spotted Mrs. O's red and white print blazer as the Thakoon Chevron Print Blazer, available here. Thanks to reader "MDavis" who has spotted Mrs. O's light blue blazer as the Talbots Grace Fit Piped Seersucker Jacket, available here.

Update #2: Adding an "Official White House Photo" from the Let's Move London event. The First Lady wears a great striped top, which reader "Dana" identifies as the Colorblock crewneck sweater from the Gap, available here.


Easter Sunday Best

The First Family attended Easter service at St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. this morning. On the fashion front, Mrs. O re-wore a dress that might look familiar to some. The Thakoon pixelated floral jacquard dress was paired with a coordinating coat for the famous "fashion face-off" with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in April 2009, here. For today's outing, the First Lady updated the look with a cropped black cardigan and pink Schreiner pin. This is the second year in a row that Mrs. O has worn a Thakoon dress for Easter Sunday.

The First Lady was in Tampa, Florida today to attend a DNC fundraiser at the home of Joel Cantor, a developer and top campaign fundraiser. When Mrs. O landed in Tampa, she was greeted by students from John Sexton Elementary School, which received an award from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation this year.

On the style front, Mrs. O revisited a floral Thakoon dress, first seen during the presidential debates during the fall of 2008.  


Happy Easter

The Obama family celebrated Easter at Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. today. On a fashion note, re-wearing was a prominent theme. Mrs. O wore a silk plisse, ikat print dress by Thakoon, first seen in September 2009 for the G-20 summit, here. Sasha Obama wore a hand-me-down dress borrowed from her older sister! The pink lace dress was worn by Malia Obama on the final night of the DNC in 2008, seen below. Cute!
