LOOKING AHEAD TO A NEW WEEK!


SEVEN DAYS OF FAMILY, FOOD AND FUN!

BRING IT ON!



SUNDAY...

The first holiday party of the year happens tonight...this one with my new employer whose holiday parties are "legendary" according to my colleagues.  This classic St. John knit dress is understated and elegant, but definitely says it's a celebration with the glitzy beaded waist detail.  This is what I call a "forever" dress!  From Vinty Boutique.

MONDAY...

It will be a busy day in the kitchen today preparing for out of town visitors to help celebrate Thanksgiving.  Wouldn't it be delightful to start holiday baking in a kitchen alight with this darling light fixture in a color that's reminiscent of pumpkin pie!  It's an up cycled vintage colander that throws light throughout the room in a charming way that just brings a little smile to my face.  From Glow 828.


TUESDAY...

My holiday guests will need to be picked up from the airport and we'll whisk them away to a hearty brunch to welcome them for the long weekend.  This stunning animal print jacket is the perfect little piece that's so stylish now and will be great with my camel wool slacks, cashmere turtleneck and boots. Just because it's chilly out doesn't mean we can't be cute, right?  From Sans Epoch Vintage.


WEDNESDAY...
Don't you think this little tablecloth and napkin set is the perfect way to serve an Autumn breakfast to visiting friends?  The pretty pine cones and golden leaves speak so well of the season and I think the lovely embroidered handwork is such a conversation piece, as well.  I'm such a nut for vintage textiles, especially linens, and Kerry Can has some wonderful examples!



THURSDAY...

Giving thanks for all our blessings is even more special when you can share them at your dinner table with those you love.  Carving the Thanksgiving turkey becomes a glamorous task when using these beautiful carving tools in sterling silver.  This stately pattern from Wolfenden Silver, is available from Patzi Place, and features the knife, meat fork and poultry shears and could be used for generations of family dinners or everyday elegance!




FRIDAY...

Black Friday requires a good pair of flat shoes for heavy-duty bargain hunting, and Stated Style has these fabulous flats to get you through the crazy day stylishly!  I love the pretty persimmon color, another great shade of the season and the Gucci symbols stitched on the toes would work with jeans, slacks, or a cute skirt. 



SATURDAY...


One of our local Cotillion Clubs assembles for the first Ball of the season every Thanksgiving Saturday night and has done so for who knows how many years.  It's strictly white tie and tails, and so it requires a ball gown just as formal.  This stunner from Nod to Mod Vintage features yards upon yards of iridescent French silk taffeta to swoosh across the dance floor!  It's a gown that was patterned after the Givenchy dress in "Sabrina" that our favorite Audrey Hepburn wore, and would look lovely with the standard opera length white gloves and your Sapphire jewels from the family vault, no?





Hope You Feel Like Cinderella at the Ball This Week!
