Are YOU Registered to Vote?!

For my blog’s purposes, I usually keep my mouth shut about things like politics. My blog is about fashion, so I don’t think it’s my place to bombard you with my politics. However, regardless of whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, I think it’s extremely important to vote. Even if you aren’t interested in politics, I’m sure there’s at least one issue that is important to you.  That’s why I’m asking you to register to vote and make your voice heard : )

This just made me laugh.

Just what I needed!


With the wettest June in UK records, and no sign of improvement for the next few weeks, handbags-at-dawn thought we’d tackle the issue of rain and leather handbags.

Leather is a fantastic and durable natural product, it is unlikely that a few spots of rain will damage a leather bag, a good quality leather will normally react in a natural way, and lets the water evaporate on it’s own.

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Maritime Striped Cotton-jersey Dress by J.Crew, $98.

When my stepson graduated from college in December, he had not yet found a job and — like a growing number of unemployed college grads — he moved back home. However, unlike many parents in this situation, his father and I politely informed him that he could live at home rent-free for six months before we’d start requesting that he pay for his space in the house.

I mentioned our decision to a colleague, whose response was, “You’re joking, right?” The idea that we’d expect our recent college grad to pony up rent struck her as unsupportive, especially since we could easily make do without a check on the first of every month.
