Before you read any further…I am Team Obama and this post mentions his campaign. Just wanted to get that out of the way.
Over the weekend, I was reflecting on how many tees, hats, and other Obama memorabilia I acquired in 2008 and how I’d probably just recycle what I already have. A friend of mine suggested that I check out the “Runway to Win” section on the OFA site for some other pieces. Of course…Why didn’t I think of that?
In case you missed it the first time around (in 2008), a group of fashion designers have united in support of POTUS to create pieces which will raise funds for his campaign. A snapshot of participating designers include Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Rachel Roy (my socialite twin), Tracy Reese, Vera Wang, and Russell Simmons.
I love this Tracy Reese sweatshirt ($75) and the Sean John flag tee ($45). Nothing else really motivated me to shell out dollars, especially when I have quite a few POTUS pieces already.
So, #TeamObama, are you re-upping your style stash this year or just planning to break out the same tees from 2008? I’ll probably do the latter. After all, I still heart my “Barack the Vote” shirt! Sorry for the ridiculously shiny face…It was like 60 degrees outside and clearly I wasn’t prepared!
