Fashion Fights Cancer

I was excited to learn (and thought you might be too) that three of Mrs. O's go-to designers, Tracy Reese, Monique Péan and Byron Lars, have teamed up with Fashion Fights Cancer, an organization dedicated to "nurturing the minds, bodies and souls of cancer patients and survivors through design-oriented activities." As part of The Global Fashion Fight Design Series, each designer worked with patients from the Beth Israel Medical Center to create scarves, totes and bracelets. The products will be reproduced and made available to the public through Fashion Fights Cancer in coming weeks.

In the meantime, the organization is holding an upcoming charity benefit and sample sale, The Global Fight!, at 25CPW Gallery in New York City from October 25-27. You can find more information on the events here. Enjoy!


Back to Washington

Arriving back in Washington last Friday after a week of vacation on Martha's Vineyard (cut a bit short by Hurricane Irene), Mrs. O wore a Tracy Reese auburn tribal stripe dress, paired with staple flats and a Lambertson Truex tote. For those who recognize the dress, the First Lady debuted it earlier this year during a trip to South America in March.

First Lady Mrs. O and Samantha Cameron started their Wednesday by serving U.S. and U.K. military families at a barbecue held at 10 Downing Street. For the event, Mrs. O chose a black and white print dress featuring a sheer top and beaded belt by House of Lavande. Fancy! 

Update: Thanks to various readers who have spotted Mrs. O's dress! The First Lady wears Tracy Reese Pre-Fall 2011, seen here. For jewelry, Mrs. O wears an armload of moonstone, jasper, colored diamond and white coral bracelets all by Jordan Alexander and available at Fragments.

Today marks a highly anticipated White House event: the annual Easter Egg Roll, of course. The first lady wore a fabulous grey and yellow floral frock to oversee the festivities, which included not only the egg roll, but also story time, crepe-flipping and a performance by Willow Smith.

Update: Mrs. O wears a Spring 2011 Safflower Dress by Tracy Reese.

The first family has arrived in Brazil for a state visit. After landing, the Obamas were joined by Brazilian President Dilma Vana Rousseff to participate in an arrival ceremony at Palacio do Planalto in Brasilia. Later, First Lady Mrs. O attended cultural performances at Oca da Tribo restaurant. 

Update: Landing in Brazil, Mrs. O wore a Tracy Reese Auburn Tribal Stripes Strapless dress, available here.

For the official arrival ceremony, the First Lady wore a Rachel Roy one-shoulder dress and jacket, both in "Wall Print". Rachel Roy is certainly becoming one of Mrs. O's go-to designers. On the accessory front, Mrs. O mixed gold and rose gold horn bracelets by Alexis Bittar.

Several readers have noted that Malia Obama wears the Glanz Dress from Anthropologie, available here, while Sasha wears the Girls' print Alessandra dress from J.Crew crewcuts, available here.
