Would you wear a slip dress?
Slip dresses are in style, comfortable, & even affordable, but would you wear one (outside the house)?
Side-by-side: faux fur/shearling vests
I've thought about a vest like this over the past couple years, very much a "play" item that I wouldn't want to spend much on. Since both of these vests are made primarily out of acrylic with a faux leather tie, why would you pay over a $100 more for one?
How often do you settle for something other than what you want? Here are several lesser priced items I've bought instead of the item I really wanted. But I'm equally happy having saved some money, so I think it's ok. What do you think?
One of the most important qualities in a Thanksgiving outfit, of course, is that you can eat plenty of food without feeling constricted. Another might be that you look warm & festive, possibly arrayed in fall colors.
There are those years when you wouldn't mind making a little statement on Thanksgiving...
This dress looks so easy to throw on, & I love the blue velvet ribbon & slit down the back.
For those of us who wear black & only black all the time--how 'bout a nice suede texture for Thanksgiving?

My first trip to a Zara store
I didn't get to go to Zara in Madrid, but I did get to visit my first Zara store in Toronto last month. I hoped I might find a huge store with a giant sale area, but instead the store felt like a small, uncluttered boutique--not at all what I expected.
Have you been to a Zara?

10 crossover tops from Silence + Noise at Urban Outfitters ($19.99-$69)
The truth is I've always loved the coordinated sets (known popularly as "co-ord"), even though I haven't seen them in years. I had one in the 90s--a knit skirt & top--so easy to get dressed in the morning! I know many of these show some midriff, which is a problem for most of us & not quite right for most occasions--but I'm just glad to see the sets come out because we'll find one that suits us. (P.S. We could always wear a tank underneath to hide the midriff.)
