Partisan Accessorizing- are you ready for November 2nd?

With election day only weeks away, races across the country are heating up. Congress is getting ready to ditch Washington to campaign full time, and it's safe to say that the nation is waiting with baited breath to see exactly what happens in November.

No matter which side of the aisle you support, we love the idea of showing support for your party in clever ways. Campaign memorabilia is not always very stylish or subtle, but elephant and donkey accessories can make a chic AND political statement. We'll vote for that!

For wearing around town, try...

Stubbs and Wootton slippers in your party of choice


Large elephant head buckle by Mimi di N. They make a fabulous assortment of elephant belt buckles (which do not fly under the radar, trust us)
Gold/Silvertone Large Elephant Head












Ferragamo elephant tie. Perfect for the office.


Donkey Cufflinks by Jan Leslie. Lovely for even the non-election years.



Donkey Pin- you coulfd put this on a chain and wear it as a necklace to make it a bit more modern.
Vintage 1930s Sterling Silver Made in Mexico Burro Donkey Pin Brooch


For hosting an election return viewing party, try some funky home or bar accessories.

L'Object Elephant Candle
Luminescence By L'objet - 14K Gold Black Elephant Aromatherapy Candle in Limoges Porcelain


For couples who may not see eye to eye, but want to keep a level playing field (don't know how Mary Matalin and James Carville manage it, but more power to them!), we'd suggest

Smathers & Branson democrat belt and republican belt
Smathers and Branson Democrat Needlepoint Belt













Smathers and Branson Republican Needlepoint Belt

I love this post! I am half of a 'real life' Mary Matalin/James Carville couple. While most people love October so they can sport their Halloween finest, I love that it means I can bring out all my elephant gear! Even my Cavalier is decked out in support of our party. :-)
