Vice President Harris started her week on Monday, October 4, with a visit to Colada Shop, a Cuban café and bar in Washington, DC. Below, you see her with the shop’s owner, Daniella Senior (l), and District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser (r).[Read more…]
I have combined the last two weeks into one post because Vice President Harris had few public engagements the last week of August. She wrapped up the month on August 31 with a Capitol Hill appearance where she presided over a Senate session.
I can’t tell what she was wearing from the videos; there are no photos available that I can license. It looks like the Vice President may have been wearing some of her black separates by Altuzarra, but that is just a guess.[Read more…]
Vice President Harris did not have any public engagements on Monday, August 9. Tuesday, August 10, Vice President Harris visited the Unity Health Cares Brentwood Health Center in Washington, DC.
The Vice President delivered remarks about the administration’s efforts to lower health care costs.
She also announced that more than 2.5 million people have signed up for health care during the special enrollment period.
Tuesday afternoon, she was at the Capitol to preside during the Senate’s vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill. You can hear the Vice President announce the results in this video clip.
Below, the Vice President, President, and others as they watched coverage of the bill’s passage.
The Vice President then joined the President for remarks about the massive infrastructure bill.
Her accessories included her Manolo Blahnik Newcio pumps (below), double-strand pearl necklace by Irene Neuwirth, and unidentified mabé pearl earrings.
The Vice President did not have any public engagements on Wednesday, August 11. On the 12th, she hosted a meeting with business leaders to talk about child care.
From the New York Times:
Attendees included Mark Breitbard, chief executive of the Global Gap Brand; Jenna Johnson, the president of Patagonia; Josh Silverman, the chief executive of Etsy; Alison Whritenour, the chief executive of Seventh Generation; and Hami Ulukaya, the chief executive of the yogurt brand Chobani, among others.
The White House selected the executives because of their companies’ policies on child care and paid leave, a senior administration official said. In the meeting, Ms. Harris emphasized the importance of child care as both a personal and a business matter.
Vice President Harris was in a khaki suit I haven’t yet identified, and her L’Agence Cory Tee ($85), Irene Neuwirth necklace, and unidentified mabé pearl earrings.
Friday, August 13, the Vice President took part in an Instagram live session.
The Vice President was in a blue blazer and white top, but I wasn’t able to tell if it was the Prabal Gurung blue suit or another style. (There were no photos released from the Instagram broadcast.) You can watch the conversation here.
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…]
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…]

The Vice President was in her Altuzarra separates, the Fenice Jacket and Serge Trousers. She paired the pieces with a new (to us) top or sweater, a soft green crewneck style that is not yet identified.Embed from Getty Images
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.)
It has been a busy 10 days since the Vice President’s inauguration, so today, we’re looking at what Ms. Harris has worn since that historic day.
We covered the Prabal Gurung look seen Thursday, January 21 in this post, but thought you might enjoy seeing Ms. Harris in her new office, which aides describe as a work in progress.[Read more…]
