First Family – Election Night Fashion!

Here’s the First Family right before Barack Obama‘s acceptance speech! Michelle Obama is wearing a burgundy brocade Michael Kors shift and with a cropped black cardigan and one of her signature brooches. I love that she’s repeated this look before in 2010 and 2009 – times are hard and there’s no need to flaunt flashy new dresses! Props to Sasha’s swag!
