This is what I wore for Thanksgiving. I knew that I was going to wear a dress, because I needed the maximum amount of room in my clothes to eat the vast amounts of food I was in store for, and this did the trick. In hindsight, I probably wouldn't have worn such a short dress, and in the future will more than likely wear it with tights or leggings. Unfortunately, I didn't have any of those that matched this shirt. (insert the "a watch doesn't really go with this outfit, daddy" quote from Clueless here)
All in all, my Thanksgiving was great. I woke up unusually early (I woke up like a kid on Christmas morning knowing I was going to be getting stuffing and sweet potatoes), helped my mom cook and watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade for the first time in my life. Then I ate a fantastically tasty meal with my family. I couldn't have asked for a better day. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
I just wanted to tell you how thankful I am for each and every one of my readers (YOU!) and I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! Treat yourself to an extra slice of pie, because, gosh darn-it you deserve it! ;)
I'm having quite an obsession with gold nails lately. They can be called by numerous names: Fort Knox nails, Goldschläger digits, Sutter's Mill nails, The Liberaces, Pyrite Pointers,The King Midas Curse, The nails to El Dorado, Fool's Gold fingers, etc. I think you get the idea.
So here are some suggestions on how, you too, can be the Girl with the Golden Touch.
Fur Stole: Vintage
Boots: c/o Wanted
I was in the market for some really red lipstick. I've always shied away from red lipstick because I just thought I looked ridiculous and couldn't pull it off, but my darker hair is giving me a bit more confidence so I thought I'd try it again. I've heard that MAC's lipstick in Russian Red is the Holy Grail of red lipsticks, so I thought I'd try that one out first. As soon as I put it on, I fell in love. It's such a perfect shade, and it goes on heavenly. I definitely think I'm a new red lip convert.
I love my dogs. Sometimes I think they really add that... je ne sais quoi to my pictures. But today was a different story. It's one thing that Charlie was hogging the focal point and forcing me to be pushed off to the side; but it wasn't until I uploaded the pictures and started editing them that I realized my dog was peeing in the background of 99% of them. I think he might still be going in the first picture, I can't tell... but I felt it was discreet enough to post. Maybe this can double as a National Geographic post? Dogs in their natural habitat? No? Okay. eh, tis life.
Remember the Great Moccasin Dilemma of 2010? Well, I finally decided on a pair and here they are! I got the Minnetonka classic brown ankle boot with fringe, and I took your guys' advice and got them in hardsoles so I can wear them outside and not have them get all thrashed up. I'm super excited to have these, I kind of want them in black too... but for now I'm just going to try and come up with different outfits I can wear them with. Any suggestions?!
Shoes: Minnetonka via QVC (the only place I could find these in hardsoles. crazy, right?)
