Workday Reading

The Dispatch: January 13, 2017



1. Advice to the new White House staffers from the former staff.  Some real gems in here. (Time)

2. I may not be ready for spring, but I am ready for this cute BR skirt with pink trim.

3. What breast cancer can look and feel like. (Popsugar)

4. Can’t get enough of this lavender v-back pencil dress.  Also loving this double layer wiggle dress.  Both $68.

5. I’m the only single person in my friend group — here’s why. (Refinery29)

6. These Bronzallure rose gold and black hoops are fabulous.  The coordinating ring just moved to the top of my list.

8. I kind of love the medal print on this Boden shirtdress.  Their Posy shirtdress also comes in great, bold prints.

9. A high school assigned girls in AP English to go on a date as homework.  My AP homework was to read ‘Portrait of the Artist’. One of us got cheated, not sure which. (The Cut)

10. Flare leg pants are back! (More on that next week.)  And these Alice + Olivia flares are just perfect.

11. New breeding program designed to keep moderate Republicans from going extinct. (The Onion)

        Ha! And it’s a great article, thanks for sharing. I was confused because it seemed like commentary you were adding (as you often do when sharing articles).

    Haha- I used to be a moderate Republican until I realized what a farce that was (mostly after being ostracized by the other Republicans). Now I am a happy Democrat.
