regardless of your political leanings, you really have to admire the smart branding behind barack obama's re-election campaign.
back in february, greedy girl favorite scarlett johansson and magazine maven anna wintour teamed up to celebrate the launch of runway to win, a collection of pieces from 23 designers supporting the re-election of the president. the top-right tote is from derek lam ($75) and i'm really, really obsessed with it. the bottom-left t-shirt is from marc jacobs ($45). (you can view the rest of the collection here.)
...but, maybe fashion's not your thing (i won't ask what you're doing hanging out on greedy girl). maybe you're a pet lover with a penchant for politics—or just portuguese water dogs? i like that the obama campaign wants you to feel like you (and your furry friends, too) are making a difference. smart move on obama's people's part, if you ask me. plus, really... this sweater? genius.
you can find the other t-shirt here, and the 'our health, our vote' (women for obama) tote here. (also, i didn't know how well this mug would fit in here, but i think it's genius, as well.)
p.s. did you know the POTUS is on pinterest?
the tiny type: as a journalist, i feel like i should reiterate that this—or any other content on greedy girl, for the record—should not be seen as an endorsement of any candidate or his politics and, instead, should be considered commentary on design. ok!
how can so much good come from a single shop? i could live in that jersey dress (from paisie) for the rest of my life. probably that pretty pale blue blouse, too. ok, ok, i could live in it all for the rest of my days.
p.s. take a peek at more from this shoot in marrakech. how much do you want to be that model? winged eyes and bright, matte lips are at the top of my to-do list for the weekend. anyone have any good eyeliner or lipstick recommendations?
p.p.s. use code VIP20 for 20 percent off of spring collection goods until tuesday. everybody wins!

it's been forever since i've watched this wes anderson classic. and that's really sad because it's my no. 1 top favorite movie ever in history. but since i snatched up that there red scarf—so similar to that storied franco scalamandre wallpaper, minus the arrows—i've been feeling a really, really strong urge to sit down and reconnect with my second-favorite dysfunctional family. maybe we can make that happen this weekend.
+ scarf, fred flare (i actually found mine—for even cheaper!—at karmaloop, but it's sold out at the moment.)
+ ring, forever 21
+ earrings by suzanna dai, max & chloe
+ bracelet, kenneth jay lane
+ pillow, dwell studio
p.s. here's another 'inspired by...' post you might like: 'an education.' another favorite!
