Mom-Bama Fashion: Michelle Shops At Talbots

Once again Michelle Obama has put design within reach for the masses by wearing this white wool sheath dress from mom-tastic store Talbots. (It retails for a moderate $200.) We have to say, Mobama certainly rocks the look better than the Talbots model. If we were browsing the site, we’d probably pass the item by. So, maybe Talbots is worth a try? These days, a lot of mom-friendly stores are trying to attract a hipper client—like New York & Co. and Eileen Fisher. The latter just revamped its flax-heavy line, and the results were pretty cute (yet too expensive).

After the jump, a few surprisingly cute Talbots items that could definitely earn the Obama seal of fashion approval.

These leather riding boots are pretty reasonably priced and look just like some pairs of J. Crew boots we’ve seen for almost $100 more. [$179, Talbots]

Love the belt detail on this plaid coat. [$269, Talbots]

Comfy! Just looking at these cashmere lounging pants makes us sleepy. [$199, Talbots]
