At 2008′s Democratic National Convention, Michelle Obama made her mark in a vibrant teal, sleeveless dress by Maria Pinto. Last night, the First Lady strode on stage for her speech in an equally winning look: a custom-made pink damask dress by African American designer Tracy Reese.
When you consider the storms businesses large and small have weathered lo these past few years, it’s cause for celebration to see one thrive. Case in point: Tracy Reese‘s fifth anniversary party for her store in New York City was not only a celebration of the designer’s beautiful dresses, but also her business savvy.
We know that our fashionable First Lady isn’t lacking for clothes, so why double up on an outfit as recognizable as this Tracy Reese bright blue floral cocktail dress? Michelle wore the dress first while exiting the plane at Benito Juarez International Airport in April, and then again yesterday to a picnic on the White House lawn.
