Cliché Corner   

When President Bush shook up his staff this spring, journalists and Democratic politicos reached a consensus: He was simply “rearranging the deck chairs.”


But surely until the president himself engages the substantive problems that underlie his own unpopularity (anyone holding their breath?), shuffling some personnel around merely amounts to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic .

Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic won't keep the ship of state from sinking.
(Chicago Sun-Times)

Democrats were quick to employ the cliché about rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic , while Republican officeholders, particularly those facing the electorate this November, expressed hope that throwing some deckhands overboard would right the ship of state.
(National Journal)

Mr. Bush's actions, however, are more along the lines of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic than they are any meaningful upgrade, and any housecleaning that doesn't include the firing of Mr. Rumsfeld, one of the architects of the disastrous Iraq war, isn't worthy of the term.

A spokesman for the Democrats said that the reshuffle was like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic .
(London's Times)

Using a somewhat tortured metaphor he added, "Simply rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic by replacing Andy Card with Josh Bolten without a dramatic change in policy will not right this ship."

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.
