Look For Less: Michelle Obama’s Tracy Reese Dress for March on Washington

50 years ago Martin Luther King Jr. stood in front of thousands and delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, one of the most moving speeches of the century. I remember when I first heard the speech as an “adult.” I watched my professor, Norman Finklestein, shed tears over “MLK delivering his “own eulogy.” I had never been more moved!

Yesterday I was moved when I saw our First Lady Michelle Obama grace the Lincoln Center in a gorgeous black and red floral print Tracy Reese dress priced at $493. This past MBFW in New York I got a chance to sit in on the show and floral print flock dress was one of the pieces that hit the runway. It was not on my 5 Favorite Looks from Tracy Reese, but definitely a beautiful dress.
