jacket by Dots-Dots, dress-thrifted (label removed), feather necklace-Burlington Coat Factory, textured blue tights-Dollar Tree, Vivica wedges-ShoeDazzle

If the measure of a successful Thanksgiving is found within the meal then ours was pretty good. We had 3 types of pie! (pecan, pumpkin, mincemeat-not my thing). We also got to catch up with family that we hadn’t seen in a while.

I had found this totally cute dress at a thrift store not long ago & loved it. It’s more of a spring/summer dress but I couldn’t wait that long to wear it. Since it has a bit of teal in it I added this teal jacket I got at Dots a while back. It’s a bit of an awkward wear since it hits at the elbow. Later I had to add a cardigan for warmth.

I also had a teal feather necklace that I had bought when I thought that I was going as Kesha for Halloween. I ended up being a flapper instead. Though I hadn’t seen myself in the feather necklace trend prior to this I thought that since I had it I might as well wear it. I ended up digging it.

I just had to wear my cute Vivica wedges (also seen here) from ShoeDazzle with it. The nude tights that I’d laid out had a run and I wasn’t keen on wearing leggings that hit at the ankle with these shoes. That’s how I decided on my super blue tights (also seen here). They take it a bit over the top but then again so am I.

Click HERE to watch Dutch on Netflix.

To come up with a list of Thanksgiving movies that are on Netflix Streaming I would have had to find merit in a bunch of obscure films that didn’t interest me. So instead I’m focusing on Dutch. Dutch is a childhood favorite of mine.

It stars Ed O’Neill (Married with Children, Modern Family) and Ethan Embry (then Ethan Randall, Empire Records). It was great when I was a kid because one of the main characters is a surly child. It holds up though.

O’Neill is a blue collar guy who has started dating a rich yuppie. He goes to pick up her nerdy anti-social son from boarding school. We know this because he wears glasses and is using a computer at the age of 13 in 1991.


The boy has decided to spend the holiday alone as he’s angry about the dissolution of his parent’s marriage. Because this movie is from that time period his dad is played by Christopher MacDonald (who always manages to play an asshole who is still incredibly bangable).

Of course Embry doesn’t want to accompany Ed…

but Neill convinces him.

Yes, it’s a road movie. Along the way back home good old Bundy introduces him to lots of stuff a 13 year old would love…

and, well there’s more but I don’t want to spoil it for you. Gotta love that ending too.

Fun Fact:
These two actors later appeared in the Dragnet remake together.

I’m a fan of the link round ups that a lot of bloggers do to share cool posts and other happenings so I’m giving it a shot today. I haven’t done this before. The closest I’ve come is posting the IFB round up when I’ve been it or last year’s infrequent series Web Oodles. That was more of a wrap up of entertainment info though with sporadic links thrown in though.

The Best Time I Didn’t Sit Next to Harrison Ford by Kelly Pippin.-This is great. It’s about a woman who had a huge crush on Harrison Ford in Jr High due to the rerelease of Star Wars (hey, me too!). Then she met him out of the blue one day. The comments are good too.

Pictures of the day: 1 November 2011-A photographer named Steve Jones took a photo of whale sharks and Indonesian fishermen working together in harmony. This is a really cool photo.

Hats Off!-A woman talks about her hat collection. Yay, hats!

15 Fun Things To Do When You’re Drunk-because you shouldn’t have to come up with your own ideas when you’re already drunk.

Madonna Unbound in W Magazine-I came across this photo shoot of Madonna from 2003 and I really dig it.

amazing pumpkin pie-A yummy vegan pie recipe for Thanksgiving that Alicia Silverstone recommends.

The Muppets Deluxe Overhead Latex Mask, Statler-Are you going to see the new Muppets movie? If so wear this and scare the hell out of the little kids in attendance (and many adults as well).

Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts-These look really good. Unfortunately they were sold out when I tried to buy some recently.

My Mad Men Bachelorette Party! -Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky had a Mad Men themed bachelorette party!

Kemper Pedic Bed-I loved Jason Segel’s appearance on SNL last night. Here’s one sketch to wet your appetite for more. I was so happy that he was in a bunch of the sketches (hey not all hosts do that, I think that they get overwhelmed). The full episode is here.

Our lives, in photoboothsThe Bloggess posted her personal photobooth strips from the last 8 years. It’s a neat idea.

MAC for Miss Piggy Eyeshadow Swatches, Photos, Reviews-MAC put out a small Miss Piggy line because of the new Muppets movie but the reviews are not good.

How I Met Your Mother Happy Slapsgiving Men’s T-Shirt-Wear this tee on Thanksgiving, which is time when we all gather to give slaps.

Santa Hat Mustache Christmas Ornament-Your tree needs this.

Adam Scott on Conan-I’m not a fan of Conan’s current show but this was pretty good. I enjoyed how Scott talked about his early auditions.

Exclusive: Concept Art from Fresnadillo, Bradley Cooper’s The Crow-The new Crow movie with Bradley Cooper has dropped Cooper as well as others from the project. These are the drawings of what his character could have looked like. They’re pretty fugly for the most part.

Dress-Ambiance Apparel, thrifted, kitten heels-Fioni, Payless

with my sister and mother

I wore this look on Thanksgiving. There wasn’t much to be said about Thanksgiving but we ate some food. It was my first Thanksgiving as a vegetarian but I never really liked turkey much anyway. I like stuffing and mashed potatoes.

I have been really into vintage dresses lately because I’ve been marathoning Mad Men. I have been buying some vintage dresses on eBay but there is one style referred to as a Lucy Dress that has alluded me because they never end up selling cheaply on there. I bought this at a thrift store. Although I can tell that it’s actually a modern day dress it has that type of style to it. I also tried on a wiggle dress the day I bought this that looked like it was from the ’80s but a throwback to the ’60s but I couldn’t fit my chest into it. It was a bummer. This was also a little tight in the chest so I wore a thin sports bra underneath. My mother was making fun of me when I told her because in the past I have complained about not inheriting her large chest like my sister has. She’s like ‘now you want to go and look smaller’. She doesn’t get my love of fashion. I also found these heels that I had bought a few years ago but had only wore a few times. They were a little loose but I had to wear them. I dyed my hair Manic Panic’s Electric Banana a few days beforehand but it didn’t last long.

The Makeup


About a week before Thanksgiving I had watched A Single Man and fell in love with Julianne Moore’s eye makeup in it. Apparently it’s the same type of style that Twiggy used to wear. You basically just do a nude or white eyelid and then do a cat’s eye eyeliner but also line the crease of the eyelid which looks a bit trippy. I considered making it look even crazier by wearing fake lashes but didn’t want to have to deal with them all day. Then I used my two current favorite pink lipsticks (Rimmel’s Pink Blush and Maybelline’s Colorsensational Pearly Pink). I like to layer them.
