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

L'Object Elephant Candle
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
Jonathan Adler Donkey Bank and Elephant Bank (insert joke regarding taxes/stimulus/financial crisis here)
Are you sporting any partisan accessories these days?
