The Eight: October 20, 2016

Oct 20, 2016

I came back from Cuba with a fever and serious body pain.  I spent yesterday trying to get seen at the ER, and today, trying to get an appt with a general practitioner.  Posting will be light until my body temperature falls back into the 90s.  Apparently, the entire month of October will be lost to illness.

***

1) Trump criticized Condoleezza Rice, saying she wasn’t a big enough bitch to be a good Secretary of State.  The always classy Condi had the perfect response. (The Cut)

2) Took this $25 Old Navy tote to Cuba. It was perfect.  Just had to organize it with these nylon pouches.

3) The dueling feminism of Taylor Swift, KimK, and Hillary Clinton. (Marie Claire)

4) This lace sleeve T Tahari blouse is the perfect going out top.  And pair this printed Eliza J dress with black tights and black booties for a great casual Friday look.  All pieces are under-$80.

5) How to quickly research all of your local elections (act locally, think globally). (Lifehacker)

6) These Alexis Bittar earrings are perfect for evening events–pretty and sparkly, but not overwhelming.  Lovely.

7) Japan’s career women battle the country’s ‘salaryman’ culture. (CNN Money)

8) Moth’s Cocoon Cardigan, buy it now.  No, seriously.  Amazing.  Also, their Madison Park Poncho.  Yes, poncho.

Bonus: Why both presidential candidates keep talking about steel. (American Manufacturing)

    Misleading headline…he WISHED she was a bitch. “It should be noted that partial video of the speech from CNN’s archives gives a much different version of the quote. In that video, Trump says, “I wish she was a bitch. I don’t care if she’s a lovely woman. I want somebody that can go and make deals.”

    So sorry to hear about your health. Take care of yourself!

    Alexis Bittar is one of my favorite jewelry lines and if you sign up on their site for the newsletters, you’ll get notifications about sales. Which happen often (think at least once, if not more a week) and on recent pieces.

    Thanks again for the ban on the Ivanka Trump brand.

    Please have yourself tested for Zika, Belle. It’s likely either that, dengue, or Chikungunya, particularly if the pain you’ve been having is in your joints.

  5. K says:

    Feel better!

  6. Danielle says:

    LOVE that you mentioned what bag you brought on your latest adventure. My husband and I are going overseas next month, and I’m in the market for a new purse for traveling. Was the Old Navy tote you used fairly lightweight? Do you think it’d be wearable as a crossbody bag? Thank you and feel better!
