Unicorns! Obamas! Sweaters! First daughter Sasha Obama got some attention for wearing an ASOS unicorn style on Nov. 17.

Sasha Obama, 12, caused quite the style stir when she wore an ASOS sweater to a Maryland Terps women's basketball game on Sunday. Tweens and adults alike went nuts bombarding the British e-tailer for the playful design, only to be told there was a worldwide unicorn sweater shortage. 

Uncool.

Before a nation could knit their own, ASOS finally gave into consumers on Friday and notified the public that it would re-stock the style, priced at $45, starting Dec. 2. 

"After the youngest Obama, Sasha, wore a (sold out, boo) ASOS unicorn jumper to a basketball game ... the internet went crazy for it and demanded a re-stock," reads the ASOS blog. "Set your iCal and keep your eye on the ASOS Twitter feed for more updates. Skippidy-yippidy-unicorn-yay!"

Malia and Sasha Obama, in J. Crew and Kate Spade coats, arrive during the presidential inauguration on Jan. 21, 2013 in Washington, DC.

The first daughters wear an array of brands, from mall favorite J.Crew to indie darling Dusen Dusen. But Sasha's sweater moment has mirrored mom Michelle's penchant for causing dresses to sell out, including designs by Tracy Reese, Tory Burch, and yes, even ASOS. 

Now we just need to get Bo Obama in an alpaca sweater.
