Coordinating just the right look for a job interview is intimidating enough, but imagine a tête-à-tête with President-elect Donald Trump.
Secretary of Education candidate Michelle Rhee’s outfit scored high marks on Saturday for keeping things casual chic at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., where she purportedly discussed the gig, reports Fox News. She was joined by her husband, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson.
Rhee, a former Washington, D.C., public schools education-reform leader, looked patriotic in her ensemble, which included a bright red overcoat around her shoulders and a red, white and blue-striped dress.
Still, where she really made the grade was with her elegant Coach heels — which are currently available at a bargain price.
The brand’s “Smith” Mary Jame pumps feature a 3.25-inch heel with a suede upper and a pointed, leather-trimmed cap toe. The shoes retailed for $225 but are now on sale for $180 on Bloomingdales.com. Similar “Smith” styles are available in different colors for $134 on Nordstrom.com and $149 on Dillards.com and Zappos.com.
Trump and Rhee both support spending public money on charter schools.
More meetings took place throughout the day, with several political insiders visiting the Republican mogul and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, including Betsy Davos, who is also in the running for Secretary of Education. Mitt Romney and former Marine Corps General James Mattis were among the other guests who are said to in the running for Trump’s cabinet after he’s sworn into office on Jan. 20, Inauguration Day.
