Two (2) weeks, people. 14 days. 336 hours. And counting. Election Day - Tuesday, November 4 we have to make a change. A big one. Stir up the system. Right the wrongs. It's inevitable. And, quite honestly, our future depends on it.
I KNOW all of you C&E's are registered and ready. But we still need to remind people that one has to show up and vote to make something happen. And there are two fabulous groups out there making sure everyone is on top of things:
- Several intensely talented and creative people from Poke and Mother (and elsewhere) teamed up to create SpellingChange.com to spread awareness of and support Obama's campaign. So if you can remember your ABC's, create a word. A letter. Just say SOMETHING.
- Our friends on the West Coast are also up to some neat tricks. "People in the Middle for Obama" wants to talk to you. You - "non-partisan, non-ideological, common-sense middle ground." Independents, Republicans, Democrats. People who represent all groups - who have decided to vote for Obama. Want to share your story? Send photo and the below info to MiddleforObama@gmail.com: Name, Age, Sex, Occupation, State of Residence, Marital Status, Children, Political Affiliation, and your story - Who are you? What are the issues you care about the most? Why have you decided to vote for Obama?
Get out there people. Time is short - make sure you are heard!

Desperate to find that elusive classic but fabulously fashionable coat to chase away gloomy days? Convinced it's just a bunch of fiction that raises your hopes again and again only to dash them to the ground? Look no further...Amiee Cho, a former Vogue fashion writer, heard our pleas and gave us Gryphon. Classic outerwear with contemporary twists - fur trim (fake or recycled), shimmering fabrics, shrunken silhouettes - make dreary days sparkle and chases away those Burberry Blahs. Check out entire collection at Gryphon-NY.com or purchase at RevolveClothing, IntermixOnline or Shopbop.

Created by dynamic duo Daniel and Michelle Lehmann and tucked away in Soho is a fabulous little store called Clio, brimming with unique tabletop objects. Never again will you duplicate yet another set of highball glasses from someone's registry. Rebel! Ignore the list. (It's really all about you anyway).
Most obsessed with the Words tabletop collection, incredibly partial to the "Coffee" mug as it has the perfect shape and heft to make that morning java oh that much more incredible. Clio, 92 Thomson St (btw Prince & Spring), 212.966.8991; firstname.lastname@example.org

Someone else's clothes. It's a rare moment when Cheap & Evil Girl wears clothes other than hers. But in a perfectly folded pile on the shelf in the closet are about 4 pairs of sweatpants that do not belong to me (sweatpants are great for relaxing in after conquering the world). Not the Juicy "track suits" we have come to know and love. No. We are talking the grey, drawstring, no pockets, loose, washed and worn, elastic at the ankle, maybe a team name or university in now peeling letters and - oh - did I mention they belong to an ex-boyfriend and are 3-4 sizes too big? (Actually, several ex-boyfriends). Yeah THOSE sweats. Almost impossible to find lately, unless you stealthily abscond with a well-used pair from your current bed-buddy. Until now.
J. Crew has brought back the classic graphic fleece sweatpant and was considerate enough to realize that women everywhere would probably do alot of "borrowing" with no intention of ever returning, so some extra inventory in smaller sizes is available. Choose between Graphic Fleece No. 12 in graphite (that would be old-school heathered grey) or Graphic Fleece No. 7 in faded black. For a sweet $59.50.
Oh my minions, I have been so remiss; this financial debacle has been keeping me busy - it took YEARS to orchestrate and it's finally coming to fruition. Something to keep you occupied as I take over the money markets:
We love them. We want them.
A sturdy yet fabulous cotton canvas tote, measures 16.5"x14", priced at a reasonable £10 (that's approximately $17.70 for those of us in the US, €12.78 for our EU C&E's) and international shipping available - to ANYWHERE.
Perfect for carrying away large piles of cash!
