4 more years...of Michelle Obama's awesome outfit recycling
Barack Obama's victory in yesterday's presidential election doesn't just mean four more years of Democratic leadership in the White House. It means four more years of wardrobe remixes from the first lady!
When the president took the stage with his family after the announcement of last night's victory, you may have noticed that Michelle Obama's look was a bit familiar. The burgundy silk brocade dress, by Michael Kors, was in fact a repeat.
She wore it in 2010, at a ceremony honoring Army Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta, with a cropped black cardigan and a pin by Alexis Bittar. But that wasn't even the first time we'd seen it.

She was photographed in the same dress in 2009, descending the White House steps with her husband.

Whether last night's outfit choice was a nod to economic austerity in the president's next term or just another chance to shop her closet, we're as thrilled as ever that the first lady is keeping it real with her wardrobe. We can't wait for four more years of cutting-edge fashion ... and inspiration to mix things up with our own favorite pieces! Bravo, Mrs. O, for making outfit repeats not just kosher, but cool.

God bless her, most people wear clothes for many years. Whoever said she is ugly is not only mean, but wrong. She is a nice looking lady and seems to be trying to help our children with her nutritional campain. I was not sure if I liked her when they hit the scene the first time, but I have come to respect and admire her.
