Low-Paying Jobs   


Reading your Vacaville piece ("Vacancies in Vacaville," March) took me back several decades to the Abilene Reporter-News in Abilene, Texas. My beat in those days included the federal court. One day as I was scanning the bulletin board in the federal building I saw a notice seeking a janitor. You can imagine my dismay to discover the starting salary for a person to clean the toilets and sweep the floor in the federal building was higher than my salary for covering trials. It was an early insight into the realities of our profession.

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.
