Michelle Obama still hearts Target
The Associated Press reports that the First Lady sneaked out for a little Target shopping trip today at the Target store on Route 1 in Alexandria, Virginia. Trying to look incognito, she was spied wearing a Nike baseball cap, sunglasses and a floral-print button-down shirt with a neon v-neck tank.
The AP reported that Secret Service agents, also dressed casually, arrived at the store 30 minutes before the first lady, who shopped with an assistant. She reportedly spent 30-40 minutes shopping and was only recognized by her cashier.
But we already knew that Mrs. Obama was a Target fan. She was seen wearing a dress from Target in Phoenix back in August 2009, and then wore that same dress in July of this year. And during the 2008 presidential campaign, Mrs. Obama proudly proclaimed herself "more of a Target shopper," saying she preferred the store to Walmart.
