This week could be called a Prabal Gurung trifecta, as the Vice President wore the designer’s creations each of the three days she had public engagements. We begin with Tuesday, July 20, when the Vice President welcomed King Abdullah II of Jordan and his son, Crown Prince Al Hussein, for a working breakfast at her residence.[Read more…]
I am back with a post combining the last two weeks; the Vice President only had two public engagements the first week of July so I thought it made more sense to combine the weeks into one post.
We begin with Thursday, July 8, when Vice President Harris visited her alma mater, Howard University.[Read more…]
Vice President Harris did not have any public engagements Monday or Tuesday, June 28 and 29. On the 30th, she spoke at the UN’s Generation Equality Forum, “a global gathering for gender equality convened by UN Women and co-hosted by the governments of Mexico and France, in partnership with youth and civil society,” per the UN site.[Read more…]
This week we saw the Vice President in a couple of new ensembles featuring a lighter color palette. We’ll begin with Monday, June 21, when Vice president Harris traveled to Pittsburgh. Below, Ms. Harris being greeted by Senator Bob Casey (D-PA).[Read more…]
Vice President Harris started her week on June 14th with a trip to South Carolina. Below, the Vice President arriving at Greenville Spartanburg International Airport.[Read more…]
The Vice President’s week started with a flight to Guatemala on Sunday, June 6. Below, Vice President Harris at Joint Base Andrews about to board Air Force Two.[Read more…]
The Vice President started the week with a Memorial Day wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. Below you see President Biden, the Vice President, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin III, and U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Omar Jones IV as they approach the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.[Read more…]
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 on Monday, May 10, by joining President Biden as he delivered remarks on the economy.[Read more…]

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.

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.)
