Barbara2Today is Barbara Walters‘ retirement day, and I have to say the iconic legend always looked good. And stylish. She was trendy but not outrageous. The 84-year-old has always been classy.  She started on the Today Show at NBC and moved to ABC. I remember the hubbub when she earned the co-anchor position at ABC News with Harry Reasoner. News reports often heralded her paycheck: $1 million — the same as Reasoner’s paycheck, but Walters was doing the Barbara Walters specials — which made big money for ABC.Here’s a terrific story on Huffington Post. The big farewell party will take place on The View, the news and 20/20. She’s had plenty of critics and criticism, but she thrived.Barbara

After a 50-year career, she’s paved the way for women journalists everywhere.

A cool purse o’wine caught my attention a few months ago — it was a wine box that looked like a purse. Today I found jute, leather and faux leather purses that hold a bottle of wine — a perfect hostess gift — and you can ship them into Pennsylvania without worrying about PLCB laws. These purses retail for $6.95 to $26.95 and are just too cute from Giftedgrape.com

Here’s the direct link to order the purses.

Here’s another link to Gala wine purses, featured in Oprah’s magazine — they start at $29.95. Of course they hold wine.

Here’s a link to a New York Daily News article that discusses the popularity of wine purses as a fashion item. Who knew?

Here’s a link to my blog on the purse o’wine that looks like a purse — a $12.99 to $14.99 purse with a spigot that dispenses the equivalent of two bottles of wine. It appeared on The View. Watch the video here. They are available from MW Imports and produced by Italy’s Cantina di Soav.

Wine in a purse — I’ll drink to that!
