We're here to help.

If there’s one thing to be grateful for in these indisputably grim times, it’s that classy, elegant Michelle Obama is still around, making much-welcome appearances.

It didn’t take long to find out that this lovely look is a Tanya Taylor dress retailing for $575. It’s not the most offensive price tag we’ve ever seen, but it’s not on budget for most of us, either.
