Michelle Obama buys clothes for her family from their income, often at middle to upper middle class emporiums like J Crew. She helps publicize the work of American designers by wearing their gowns for special occasions--often (usually??) designers donate these outfits for the publicity. This was equally true of previous FLOTUSes.

Previous FLOTUSes also traveled, when on official business, entirely at govt expense, when on vacation, with security at government expense. Would you have it any other way?
