The Edition: No. 90

Apr 9, 2019

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. — Harry S. Truman

Teed. This $30 Banana Republic t-shirt has a shirttail hem. So good!

Numbers. How old is 37? Depends on your gender.

Frocked. $75 dresses at Ann Taylor (petite and tall).  I grabbed this pretty floral.

Sold. Inside the Trader Joe’s black market. Who needs Everything Bagel seasoning?

Relaxed. Bought both the white and teal in this dress for casual Fridays.

Boosted. Three salary negotiating mistakes, and how to avoid them.

Brighten. This illuminator is great for a subtle glow, especially on tired skin.

Admitted. A D.C. school tries to stop parents from sabotaging other student’s futures so that their kids can get ahead. (When did college admissions become House of Cards?)

Bagged. Rebecca Minkoff sale — Love this crossbody and grey satchel.

Played. Why don’t female candidates get asked about their hobbies?

My friend, Barb, is an incredible person.  She and her partner Jayne have built an amazing business.  She is so devoted to her two boys.  But the has a weird fetish…one that causes her to make dioramas with Peeps.  Luckily she lives in a city that embraces that.

Washingtonian did a fun profile about her work.  And you can follow her creations on Instagram at We The Peeple.
