Vice President Harris started the week on Monday, May 10, by joining President Biden as he delivered remarks on the economy.
The pieces are crafted of tropical-weight wool. The jacket features notch lapels, two front flap pockets, a double back vent, and a single button front closure button, while the trousers have a straight-leg silhouette. The designer’s social media accounts offered information about the look.
The Vice President wore an unidentified top in a matte burgundy or maroon-ish color. She also had on her double-strand pearl necklace by California jeweler Irene Neuwirth and her mabé pearl earrings.
Tuesday, the 11th of May, the Vice President met with the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus. The group discussed the rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans and the impact of the pandemic.
Congressional members attending the meeting included Andy Kim (D-NJ), Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), Ami Bera, M.D. (D-CA), Michael San Nicolas (D-Guam), and chairperson Judy Chu (D-CA). May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
The VP also spoke with Tunisian President Kais Saied on the 11th.
Ms. Harris wore her custom suit by Sergio Hudson and a matte navy top, the Irene Neuwirth pearls, and her mabé pearl earrings.
Wednesday, the 12th, Vice President Harris and President Biden met with a bipartisan group of congressional leaders. From left to right: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA); Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Vice President and President, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
Ms. Harris wore a charcoal grey suit that remains a UFO (Unidentified Fashion Object) with a white top, her double-strand Irene Neuwirth pearls, and mabé pearl earrings.
Thursday, May 13 the Vice President hosted the first meeting of Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment.
The group was created via an executive order from the President. In these photos, you see Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, and Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg.
She also joined the President in the Rose Garden on Thursday.
President Biden delivered remarks about the pandemic and the change in face mask policy announced by the CDC.
Ms. Harris wore a white tee or top with a squared neckline. I believe it may be this Akris Punto Square Neck Jersey Tee ($295). The stretch knit is made in 95% cotton – 5% elastane blend and features a fitted silhouette, a squared-off neckline, and elbow-length sleeves.
We saw a change in jewelry, as the Vice President wore her Labradorite Necklace and Earrings by Irene Neuwirth.

On Friday, there were no public appearances by the Vice President. However, Saturday, May 15, Ms. Harris joined her husband and other family members at Ella Emhoff’s graduation ceremonies. Below, a tweet from Ms. Harris about the occasion.
The Vice President brought back the garnet-hued double-faced wool crepe dress, and matching coat by Prabal Gurung first noted at the Inaugural Prayer Service on January 21. She wore hoop earrings that look like a pair she has worn for several years and a necklace with charms (I *think*). One thought – charms related to Howard University and/or Alpha Kappa Alpha, her sorority. Ella Emhoff was in a dress by The Vampire’s Wife.
Ms. Emhoff graduated from the New School’s Parsons School of Design. Below, a post by proud father Doug Emhoff.
We saw Ms. Harris briefly on Saturday, May 15, when she visited Washington’s Eastern Market. The market shared photos on its Facebook page, including this one with Colin Bill, who founded Hero Heads, a company that lets you “‘wear your heart on your tee’ with….unique, hand-drawn designs of inspirational heroes, like Harriet Tubman, Abraham Lincoln, and RBG.”
And met other shoppers.
I will update the post if I discover the designer/manufacturer of any of the UFO pieces.
Also of note this week, an update on designer Christopher John Rogers; he has done a collection with Target. Below, Vice President Harris in the Christopher John Rogers coat and dress he created for her inauguration on January 20.
The collaboration is part of Target’s Designer Dress Collection, which also features collaborations with Rixo and Alexis. Prices will range from a very reasonable $40-$60 and offer sizes XXS to 4X.
Below some of the Christopher John Rogers designs. From left to right, the Floral Puff Sleeve Tiered Dress ($55), the Mixed Stripe Short Sleeve Dress ($55), the Plaid Wide-Strap Dress ($55); and on the far right, the Striped Sleeveless Slip Dress ($40).
