A little joke for you from Anita Diamant's The New Jewish Wedding: "The tongue-in-cheek Yiddish-English 'translation' for R.S.V.P. is Remember to Send Vedding Presents."

You know my alter ego Haute Cocoa's all about the stylish bargains, while Mr. Hot Cocoa and I are all about political engagement (pun intended).

It's out of my price range for now, but this darling Nanette Lepore tee isn't!
