  1. Help me find a dress similar to this one, as it is sold out in almost every size :(


  2. To the HIVE: The Vote.org article above provides a great reference about the deadlines to register in order to vote in the election. Every state is listed, and has different deadlines. It is important that we, in the HIVE, read the article and register in time to vote. For example, here is the NY rules. Other deadlines differ:

    In-Person: 25 days before Election Day. (10 days before Election Day for special elections.)
    By Mail: Postmarked 25 days before Election Day and received no later than 20 days before Election Day.
    Online: 25 days before Election Day.

    Please register and VOTE! No matter who you are or who you support, we in the HIVE must show solidarity as WOMEN and vote down loosers who disrespect us. Register! The manageing partner said I can go out and canvass for new voters, so I am doeing so from this site, for starters. If others in the HIVE want to meet and get out the vote, I can do it in NYC! YAY!!!!

  3. Saks has it in a few more sizes.
