(Adam Sandler Turkey Song playing in the background)
Thanksgiving is my most favorite holiday of the whole year. I think because I just love turkey that much and love the traditions of gathering together for a great meal. I have the fondest thanksgiving memories, but none of them involve actually cooking the bird. I know. Aaaaah, turrrrkkkeeey, you complete me!
This is not to say that I wouldn't ever try, it's just I'm always an invited to guest (who brings lovely side items in plural) and my Japanese oven is ridiculously little (like 6-count muffin pan size, good enough for a medium chicken or a small pizza). Well this year I've come down with a nasty cold and can hardly taste my Theraflu, much less my beloved turkey. I'm on the mend and am hoping this clears up before tomorrow night.
& back to the J.Crew crack addiction...
Hubs has done the mail runs in the last few days (bless his heart for not mentioning the J.Crew boxes delivered en masse) and I received the silk black peony hair clip - slash -pin which now seems to have disappeared from the website. I thought it would be a cute addition to tons of outfits and multipurpose. When it showed up I had the idea to add it to my opera pearl strand. So here it is (all gussied up on my undone bed... which has been my home while at home since I've been sick).
With the opera pearl strand tripled up.
& then because it was so fancy, I had to pull out a dress to go with it. I couldn't wear it with my goofy PJ's, though I know you all would understand.
Wearing the J.Crew silver-shot tweed dress from last fall.
I also took advantage of the Extra 20% this evening (well, evening over here) and bought a few things:
I have wanted this top - The Frances Cherry Blossom top - since I first started stalking J.Crew not too long ago. & I refuse to pay the ridiculous eBay prices!! So here it is! Final price: $31. Not too shabby.
& the Olive top. I bought the other color FP when it was released. This one? $47!! This is a great deal, ladies. This top looks fabulous with the Minnie pants in black. It is si Jackie O.
Finally, the Jeweled Garland Bracelet. I wanted this one from the get-go but couldn't justify a bracelet for the full price this one started at. I have been thinking how great those vintage looking jewels would look in my grubby little hands, given I don't have anything else like it. Hoping it will work!
As an extra special OOTD, here's my little guy wearing Crewcuts to school - Everything but the shoes, which are Chuck Taylor's, not J.Crew's favored Jack Purcell's. A little cardigan, a little camp shirt and we are good to go. That's how my kindergardener rolls.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving, Ladies! Enjoy your time off!
