Serving my country and shopping – all in a day’s work!

I have the distinct pleasure of serving Jury Duty today. There are two crazy things about today – one is that there is apparently no crime, or no prosecutable crime, in Manhattan this week as there are no trials as of yet. I would be quite bored, but the other crazy, and cool, thing is that my friend Saranna Biel-Cohen, a fellow YPCC member, (www.ypccny.org) is also serving!

We both agreed that today affords us a good opportunity to shop online and blow that $40 that we are supposedly going to get for our civic duty. I look at it as another kind of economic stimulus opportunity.

I got to finally check out designer Laura E. Dotolo’s website for her subtle, elegant go-anywhere line of handbags. I met Laura at the gym (The same day Clive Owen was working out there! But that’s another story…) and immediately liked her warm, yet-strong personality. I’m psyched to report that her bags are GORGEOUS! This one below is my favorite. It has just the right balance of hardware and simplicity.
