Social media still buzzing over Teddy’s win, the debates and a new ‘It’ bag.
By Mary Eileen Barber
Social media is still buzzing over last week’s Presidential debate, increasing the stakes over tomorrow night’s one and only Vice Presidential debate. That’s a lot of pressure, Bryden! Nats fans who witnessed mascot Teddy Roosevelt’s long-awaited win (with a little help from a Phillies mascot) at Nationals Park last Wednesday are still in awe, which is only fueling the hype over the baseball team’s possible World Series run, its first in 79 years (the playoffs started today, Oct. 10). And in case you missed it — BIG news for the fashion and handbag-conscious — Karl Lagerfeld sent an enormous hula hoop-like bag down Chanel’s Spring 2013 RTW runway. Model reported some shoulder pain, but said her hips are in great shape. Just kidding.
