At a town hall meeting on April 7, first lady Michelle Obama, flaunted some new spring duds that had vastly different price tags. 

 Her black and white lacy cardigan by high-end designer L’Wren Scott probably retails for more than $1,000 (similar ones fell into the $1500 range), while her graphic printed blouse was from Talbot’s and cost $59.

She’s no stranger to the brand, it’s the ninth time she’s opted to wear it according to the company.  We applaud her fashion mixology. Doing the high-low thing is the modern way to go these days.
