Michelle Obama's Style: dressed for success

Success has been a long toll road for Michelle Obama. Before she was a Big Time Lawyer and First Lady, she was a Four Time Honor Student attending Magnet School in Chicago. She once remarked "I remember being shocked," she says, "by college students who drove BMWs.

You go to work and its cold at your desk, but by the afternoon you’re hot and bothered (and not in the good way).
