Steal This Look: Michelle Obama’s Chain Link Wrap Dress

Steal this Look: Michelle Obama in Diane von Furstenberg

Yesterday First Lady Michelle Obama screened the new Muppets Movie, “Muppets Most Wanted,” with an assortment of military families at the White House.

She posted the above photo to her Instagram account, and while I smiled when I saw Kermit in the photo, it was Mrs. Obama’s dress that really caught my attention.

I think the First Lady always looks impeccable, but there’s just something about a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress that makes any woman look amazing. It’s such a classic look that never goes out of style! (Last night I found myself going down the rabbit hole of ogling all of the wrap dresses on the DVF website. Suffice it to say I’d like one of each.)

If you want to steal Michelle Obama’s style, you can get a very similar look with the Diane von Furstenberg Two Silk Jersey Wrap Dress ($345). I don’t believe this dress is identical to Mrs. Obama’s, because the chain link print on hers appears to be substantially larger.

Steal this Look: Connie Britton in ASOS

Steal this Look: Connie Britton in ASOS

 

I used to be an avid People Magazine reader and my favorite section of the magazine was always the “Stars: They’re Just Like Us” section. I don’t know why but I really enjoyed seeing photos of people like Jennifer Aniston carrying their own groceries, or Rachel Bilson wearing clothes I could afford.

If I was in charge of People’s editorial content, this latest dress Connie Britton was spotted in would be included in that section of the magazine. Connie has had a long string of hit TV shows recently, and can probably afford to wear whatever she wants, but she attended the All is Lost premiere in New York wearing something off the rack from ASOS. I was already a Connie Britton groupie, but this latest fashion choice really seals the deal.

If you want to steal her look, Connie is wearing the Pencil Dress with Leather Look Panels, which is currently available at ASOS for just $62.29.

Steal this Look: Ashley Greene’s Star Sweater

Ashley Greene Star Sweater

 

Ashley Greene was spotted out and about this weekend sporting a budget find that any of us could easily own! I am 90%* certain that Ashley is wearing the Starry Nights Sweater, which you can pick up at Forever21 for just $22.80.

Womens Star Intarsia Tunic Sweater Black X Small

Looks like I was wrong about Ashley’s sweater. She’s actually wearing the Star Intarsia Tunic Sweater, which you can get at Express for $59.90.

*The Express sweater is super affordable, but if you’re looking for something even cheaper the Forever21 version makes a great look for less!

Steal this Look: Katie Holmes’ Jean Skirt and Wide Brimmed Hat

Steal this Look: Katie Holmes Jean Skirt

When I saw this photo of Katie Holmes I did a quick double take. It’s like she reset her personal calendar back to 1995. (I’m pretty sure this is the outfit I wore on my first day of high school. Of course, I just looked sloppy and Katie looks cool.) Alternately, perhaps Katie is hoping J.Crew will re-release the Dawson’s Creek J.Crew Catalog? Or, even better, perhaps she’s trying to convince Michelle Williams that NOW is the time to shoot a Dawson’s Creek reunion special? This look would be perfect all of the above.

While I’d like to think that Katie pulled a bunch of old items out of her closet to assemble this look, I’m guessing most of these pieces are quite pricey. Here are the pieces you’ll need to steal Katie’s look if you want to recreate Katie’s look but are no longer in possession of your mid-90s wardrobe.

SONOMA life + style Embellished Denim Skirt – $19.99 at Kohl’s // Charcoal Long Sleeve T-Shirt - $22.46 at Sierra Trading Post // Merona Belt - $16.99 at Target // Michael Stars Wide Brim Hat - $58 at PiperLime // Thelma Bag - $47.25 at ASOS // Oversized Retro Sunglasses - $13.56 at Sunglass Warehouse

What do you think? Is this look a hit or a miss?

Michelle Obama Wears Tracy Reese to March on Washington

Michelle Obama in Tracy Reese Embellished Flared Frock at March on Washington

 

President Barack Obama spoke at the March on Washington today, commemorating the 50 years since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech, accompanied by Michelle Obama. Michelle, looking radiant as always, was wearing the Tracy Reese Embellished Flared Frock.

I’ve found the Tracy Reese Embellished Flared Frock available in two stores, though it’s sure to sell out quickly. You can currently find Michelle Obama’s stunning floral Tracy Reese dress in the Tracy Reese online store for $498, at Amazon for $498, and and also at Nordstrom for $495.

I am not able to adequately speak to what today’s march and the 50th anniversary of this speech means for this country, but I did enjoy this post from the New York Times: The Lasting Power of Dr. King’s Dream Speech

Steal this Look: Olivia Palermo’s Red Paisley Dress

Steal-this-Look-Olivia-Palermo

 

It’s hard not to love Olivia Palermo’s style, and recently she was spotted out and about in a cute little dress we can all afford! Olivia is great at mixing high-end and budget-friendly pieces and that’s exactly what she did here. Olivia is wearing the ASOS Skater Dress in Paisley Print, which costs just $67.50!

Olivia Palermo definitely has the magic touch. I probably wouldn’t have looked twice at that dress on the ASOS website, but Olivia makes it look so chic that I really want this dress myself!

Steal this Look: Jennifer Garner’s Black and White Tote

Jennifer Garner's black and white tote for less

 

A few days ago Jennifer Garner was photographed out and about carrying the chic black and white tote bag you see above. I’m not normally one to fall for white bags but I really liked the look of this bag. Unfortunately I couldn’t figure out where she got this purse, but I resumed my search this morning and La Dolce Vitae tells me Jennifer Garner is carrying the Bottega Veneta Lino Spalmato Calf Scolpito Tote, which retails for about $600.

Obviously that is way out of my price range, so I went in search of a look for less and spotted a super close replica at Forever21. This Quilted Faux Leather Tote is pretty darn similar to Jennifer Garner’s black and white tote and makes a great look for less – way less – at just $32.80.
