(J.Crew separates, affordable Target shifts, and $35 H&M dresses? Yes, please!)

On Friday, Obama left for Camp David with the president wearing a blue-patterned dress from the Gap. We tracked the garment down online, and it's actually still available and on sale. The "Impressionist Print Draped Dress" is $29.99 on Gap.com. Of course, the first lady marches to her own fashion beat, so she rocked the dress as a tunic, paired with white pants, black sandals, and a lime green Lambertson Truex tote bag. (The bag company went bankrupt in 2009, so you'll have to check eBay for that).

Obama publicly wore a printed Gap sundress back in 2009 as well as a $10 striped Gap t-shirt and matching $25 floral Gap cardigan (pictured at right) when she met with former first lady Nancy Reagan the same year.
