The Right Thing
Vickie Walton-James is named chief of the Chicago Tribune's Washington
bureau, replacing James Warren, who returns to the Windy City as deputy
By Kathryn S. Wenner
After six years as deputy bureau chief, Vickie Walton-James is picked to
head the Chicago Tribune's Washington staff, replacing James Warren, now
deputy managing editor/features. "My terrific deputy," Warren calls her.
When he was out reporting, Warren says, "she was a very steady head."
With Warren recently moved to Chicago, Walton-James, 42, was running the
shop on September 11. She was named to her new position eight days
later. "It is a big challenge to be in charge of the bureau during this
story," she says. "People are saying after this everything will seem
easy." She hopes to add to the existing staff of 13 reporters, two
editors, columnist Clarence Page and an office manager. Former Tribune
chief political writer Michael Tackett, now national editor at U.S. News
& World Report, worked with Walton-James for nearly a decade. "She is
one of the few people in journalism management who has truly wonderful
people skills," he says. "Vickie's appointment is just a great example
of the right thing happening."

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet
it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags
early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags
logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
