Michelle Obama shared her fashion motto this week! “I don't buy it if I don't love it,” the First Lady said during a White House round table discussion, the AP reports. She then added that she prefers a laid-back approach to shopping. “I don't want to waste anxiety on something as limited as clothes,” she said. “If I'm comfortable in what I have on, then all my attention can go to the people in the room, and I don't have to worry about whether something is riding up or whether my feet hurt.” Good advice! Do you agree?
