Right on cue, yesterday Michelle Obama resurrected a previously worn Prabal Gurung dress from her wardrobe to wear for Easter Sunday. It’s both a holiday-appropriate move and somewhat economic (it’s hard to know how much the dress actually cost, since it is two years old, but Mr Gurung’s dresses average bewteen $1500-$1700 at Saks.com).

More importantly, however, it underscores the trend FLOTUS set during the campaign for shopping her own closet. It’s shaping up as a second-term strategy.
