The one area that got the women all excited at the National Museum of American History was the First Lady Dresses section.
One of the earliest in the collection is of Lucy Webb Hayes. Most of the ones around her time were pretty plain, but her's certainly stand out.
This was Lady Bird Johnson's dress, even in the 20th Century, these dresses were much more modest.
Now the First Ladies since most of the time I've been alive were much more "fashionable" and luxurious. From left to right we have dresses from Barbara Bush, then Hillary Clinton, the red one is Laura Bush's, and the one on the far right is Michelle Obama's.
I also spotted Mary Todd Lincoln's dress. I didn't even have to be told this was her's.
There was also China dinner plate sets of the First Ladies. I didn't think any of them were really that special except the ones made for Nancy Reagan. While it a nice set, I do think the idea of fancy plates should only be made when there are zero Americans struggling to find food. But that's just me.
