It's been a LONG time since I ordered from them (yay for overcoming my online commerce addiction!), but I will admit that these wool sneaks from F21 are adorable - and make me excited for fall. (Is it weird that I like these little slip ons too?) And, since I'm indulging in this consumerist moment, I will admit that I love this bag (in pewter or walnut, right?) I'm slightly nostalgic for the days I was foolish enough to even think of spending $200 on a bag (I mean, not really, because I know I'm doing the right thing by being frugal, but....you know.)

A step towards beginning to acknowledge the long-term negative effects of mass incarceration, and the potential alternatives: "California state prisons are releasing their female inmates that are mothers so they can serve the rest of their sentencing under house arrest. This is bold change for incarceration in California and a result of the overcrowded prisons. 'The program is ‘a step in breaking the intergenerational cycle of incarceration,’ state prisons Secretary Matthew Cate said, arguing that ‘family involvement is one of the biggest indicators of an inmate’s rehabilitation.''" source.
