NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–November 16, 2016
Off to a good start!
The Trump family is going to have a very difficult time separating the Trump Organization from the Trump presidency. Immediately following Ivanka Trump’s 60 Minutes interview with her father, her crack staff began emailing style reporters about where to buy the $10,000 bracelet Ivanka was seen wearing in the interview:
In a “style alert” for fashion journalists sent out by Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, the First Daughter-elect was pictured wearing “her favorite bangle from the Metropolis Collection” on the CBS News program. The bracelet is available at two price points: one for $10,800 and a bargain-basement version for $8,800.

Ivanka Trump has been wearing dresses from her collection for many of her public appearances.
