Vice President Harris started the week on Monday, May 24, with a meeting on expanding high-speed internet access.
….let’s talk about what we need to do to remove the barriers to access. 42 million Americans live in areas without reliable broadband. One in three Americans who live in rural areas and tribal lands do not have access to broadband. And we know that these Americans are not alone.
Vice President Harris started the week wearing separates by a go-to designer, Altuzarra. Below, you see the Vice President on Monday, May 17th, at a meeting with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
From her remarks:
Many of us have worked together over the many, many years, and it is on that foundation and with — inspired by all the work that has yet to be done that we meet to talk about the issues that are challenging our country and challenging all the folks that we represent.
The Vice President also joined President Biden as he announced the US will share Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses with the rest of the world.
She also wore her Irene Neuwirth double-strand pearl necklace and mabé pearl earrings. Below you see a single-strand version of the necklace, along with shots of the earrings as worn on other occasions.
It did not appear the Vice President had any public engagements on Tuesday, May 18th.
On Wednesday, the 19th, Ms. Harris met with Guatemalan justice leaders.
The Vice President also delivered the keynote speech at the first annual Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Unity Summit on Wednesday.
She spoke about the increase in hate crimes targeting these communities. From a CNN story:
Reported hate crimes against Asians in 16 of the nation’s largest cities and counties are up 164% since this time last year, according to a study from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State University San Bernardino. A separate study from Stop AAPI Hate released earlier this month found there were at least 2,410 anti-Asian hate incidents in the first three months of this year.
The Vice President looked like she wore Altuzarra separates in navy blue, the Kenton Blazer, and Serge or Zeke trouser. Her jewelry remained the same as that worn Monday.
Thursday, May 20, Vice President Harris joined the President when he signed the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act.

Vice President Harris also spoke with King Abdullah II of Jordan on Thursday.
It appeared Ms. Harris wore her Prabal Gurung tropical-weight wool suit and dark top or blouse.
Friday, May 21, the Vice President welcomed Republic of Korea President Moon Jae-in to the White House.
Both addressed the media.
The Vice President looked like she was wearing her custom Sergio Hudson suit, possibly the Cory tee from L’Agence. UPDATE JUNE 3: It appears the Vice President was wearing her LaFAYETTE 148 NEW YORK Luxe Charmeuse Reversible Blouse ($328), not the Cory tee.
She also appeared to be in her Manolo Blahnik Newcio pumps.
Sunday night the Vice President was the featured speaker in a CNN prime time special honoring 2021 graduates.
From her conversation with graduates:
Sometimes you’re going to be in a room, and you’re going to feel like the only one like you in that room, the only one that looks like you or the only one who’s had your life experience but what I want you four to remember — and you have to hear me on this — we will all be in that room with you, so don’t you ever feel alone. We are all in that room with you, applauding you on.”
She was in a grey UFO suit and grey charmeuse top. We first noted the suit at a May 6 meeting with voting rights and civil rights leaders. Here is an image from that meeting.
Another view from last night’s broadcast.
Beneath the jacket, Ms. Harris appeared to be wearing her Linn blouse with the gathers at the neckline by Lafayette 148 New York.
The Vice President switched up her footwear a little, wearing what looks like her grey Manolo Blahnik ‘BB 105’ in grey patent leather.
She also opted for a different necklace, bringing back the Ana Khouri ‘Jane’ open front necklace first seen for the President’s address to a joint session of Congress in early April.
The Vice President wore her mabé pearl earrings as well.
Here is a clip from CNN with the Vice President’s remarks.

She then traveled to Milwaukee on another leg of the “Getting Back on Track Tour” designed to promote the administration’s infrastructure proposal. Below, the Vice President arriving in Milwaukee.
She toured the wind turbine research and sustainable energy labs at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee campus. Here is a quick video of her arriving at the lab.
The proposed legislation would invest heavily in projects like the clean energy lab.
Vice President Harris gaggled with the traveling media before heading back to Washington.
You may have noticed the vivid blue Goyard bag at the lower center of the photo. That may belong to the Vice President; she has been seen carrying Goyard totes for years. It looks like the brand’s Saint Louis Tote in the Sky Blue colorway.
Wednesday, the 5th, Vice President Harris visited Rhode Island to continue promoting the administration’s infrastructure/investment proposal. Below, arriving at T.F. Green Airport in Warwick.
She visited an independent bookstore, Books on the Square, shortly after touching down. Here you see her with former Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo (C), now the Commerce Secretary, and current Governor Dan McKee.
More about the visit from the Providence Daily Dose:
The store had posted an “invitation” to the vice-president earlier today on their Facebook page, with a photo of their Kamala display (see below), but they had no idea that she would actually be coming. Apparently a Secret Service advance team had been scoping the place out over the last two weeks. Just prior to today’s visit they combed all through the building. They checked the doors, the upstairs, and the basement, but store manager Jennifer Kandarian reassures us, “They did not go through my drawers.”
Here is the bookstore’s Instagram post with the same message as the Facebook post.
Below, the Vice President with Governor McKee and store manager Jennifer Kandarian (C).
Ms. Harris waves at a little one.
And from Books on the Square:
Thanks to Secretary Gina Raimondo for bringing VP Kamala Harris to Books on the Square, and for saying, “This is my neighborhood store. The best place ever.” We really appreciate your recommendation and thanks for putting the spotlight on local, independent businesses!
If you’re wondering, here is what the VP bought from us: Simply Julia: 110 Easy Recipes for Healthy Comfort Food by Julia Turshen, Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead, The Topeka School by Ben Lerner, and The Dutch House by Ann Patchett. Happy reading, VP!
A quick video of the Vice President sharing her purchases.
The Vice President then visited the Social Enterprise Greenhouse, where she heard “speed pitches” from socially focused Rhode Island entrepreneurs. From left to right: US Rep Jim Langevin; US Senator Sheldon Whitehouse; the Vice President; US Senator Jim Reed; Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo.
Another view as the Vice President speaks to Rep. Jim Langevin.
The Vice President and Commerce Secretary also took part in a roundtable.
They heard from women small business owners about the impacts of the pandemic on their endeavors.
May 6th the Vice President met with voting rights and civil rights leaders “to discuss the critical importance of protecting the right to vote.”
She wore a new grey suit and pale pink top that I have not yet identified. The jacket features wide, notched lapels and the sweater appears to have a ribbed neckline.
She also taped a Mother’s Day message on the 6th.
Friday, May 7, the Vice President met virtually with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
It looks like she wore more Altuzarra, her Fenice jacket and coordinating trousers. My guess is that Ms. Harris was in the Serge Trouser, but it’s not possible to know for sure from the one photo released by the White House.
From what I could see, Ms. Harris wore her Manolo Blahnik Lisa almond-toe heels most days this week. (Shown below when worn at another engagement.)
Each day this week the Vice President wore her Irene Neuwirth Pearl Link Necklace and unidentified mabé pearl earrings with the gold border. (The necklace shown below is a single strand version of the necklace worn by Ms. Harris and the earrings are shown as worn on previous occasions.)
Vice President Harris started the week with a virtual meeting on Monday, April 26, speaking with Guatemalan President Alejandro Eduardo Giammattei.[Read more…]
Vice President Harris started the week with a trip to North Carolina, visiting Greensboro and High Point. She spoke about the administration’s infrastructure proposal at Guilford Technical Community College.
In High Point she toured Thomas Built Buses.
The Vice President also made an unannounced stop at the International Civil Rights Center & Museum in Greensboro.
The museum commemorates the historic action of February 1, 1960, when A&T State University students David Richmond, Franklin McCain, Ezell Blair Jr. (now Jibreel Khazan), and Joseph McNeil—aka “The Greensboro Four”— sat at the all-White lunch counter at F.W. Woolworth’s five-and-dime. The non-violent action “challenged America to make good on its promises of equality and civic inclusion enunciated in the Constitution,” according to the museum’s website.
The museum now sits on the site of that famed Woolworths.
And from this WFMY story by Jalen Gilkey:

I spoke with museum co-founder Skip Alston about what it meant to play host to Vice President Harris.
“It was a very surreal moment to be able to have the first African-American woman vice president of the United States of America. The second most influential and most powerful person in the world sitting at the lunch counter.”
The view from the Vice President’s perspective.
Ms. Harris viewed other exhibits at the museum.
For the day’s events, it looked like Ms. Harris wore her Sergio Hudson suit.
The suit is single-breasted with notch lapels, angled flap pockets, and a one-button closure. The trousers have a tapered leg. Beneath the jacket, I think the Vice President may have been wearing the Cory Tee ($85) by one of her go-to brands, L’Agence.
The all-cotton tee has a scoop neck, short sleeves, and a slim fit. It is made in the USA of imported materials. The Cory is offered in a broad selection of colors at L’Agence and in basic colors at Saks, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s.
On Tuesday, April 20, the Vice President and President met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
The President and Vice President both spoke about the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial and urged Congress to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.Embed from Getty Images
A transcript of the Vice President’s remarks may be seen here. Ms. Harris may have worn her Altuzarra Fenice jacket and coordinating trousers. Beneath the jacket she had on a maroon top that is not yet identified.
Wednesday, April 21, Ms. Harris attended a service for Congressman Alcee Hastings, who died in early April. The 84-year-old Democrat had represented his South Florida district since 1992.Embed from Getty Images
She also was part of a presentation marking the administration of 200 million vaccines.
It looks like the Vice President brought back a piece from Akris Punto she has worn several times.
The Zip Front Dress features a sheath silhouette with topstitched princess seams, waist darts, a front half-zip with metal pull tab, an invisible back zipper, and cap sleeves.
Thursday, the 22nd, the Vice President delivered remarks at a virtual summit on climate change.
She also took part in an immigration roundtable.
Ms. Harris was in a grey suit that remains unidentified and a white tie-neck blouse she has worn on several occasions.
The Vice President wrapped up her week on Friday, April 23, with a trip to New Hampshire. Below, Ms. Harris arriving in Gilford, NH.
Ms. Harris delivered remarks at the New Hampshire Electric Co-Op, a non-profit entity that delivers broadband service in addition to electricity.
She also stopped at Gibson’s Bookstore and Cafe, an independent bookstore in Concord.
The Vice President did a little shopping at the bookstore.
Beneath the blazer I think the Vice President wore the Featherweight Cashmere Sweater ($590).
The ribbed crewneck sweater is crafted of lightweight cashmere and is from the more upscale Michael Kors Collection line. The piece was first noted when Ms. Harris visited New Haven, Connecticut, in late March.
Vice President wore her Irene Neuwirth double strand of pearls every day this week, as well as her mabé pearl earrings. It looks like she was in her Newcio Pumps ($665) by Manolo Blahnik, shown below as worn on another occasion.
