Daily Outfit/Black Friday Craziness

Old Navy was having a black Friday sale where if you spent $20 you got a free lego rock band! Since I've been wanting lego rock band we decided to go, even though it was at 3am on Thanksgiving. We ended up being the last ones in line to get wristbands, and it was for Lego Rock Band for Wii (we have 360). So we traded in one and kept one for a giveaway on this blog! coming sometime this week! Here are my Old Navy purchases:
Black Hat
Giant Boys Sweater
Grey Leggings with Zippers!
Christmas Slippers!


Every year we go to Mitch's parents house for Thanksgiving and his dad makes a Feast, even when, like this year, there are only five of us. It was delicious as always.

When we were leaving we saw this amazing car parked outside of Mitch's apartment and I had to get a picture with it, even if it meant people look at me strangely on the street.

My Outfit for the day:
I had wanted to make a dress but wasn't feeling good so I had another outfit planned. In the end Mitch insisted I wear the giant sequin one.
Dress: Got at a yard sale
Tights: TJ Maxx
Shoes: Thrifted

I decided to curl my hair for the occasion, forgetting what a pain (literally) to sleep on curlers. It turned out cute, so I made Mitch take a picture.
The Food
The Making of the Perogies:

The Pre-Turkey Feast aka The Reason I Can Never Eat My Turkey

Yummy stuffed mushrooms. I ended up eating about 10. Sooo tasty!

Keilbasa. I actually only had one slice because I was trying to save room for the turkey and because it's just not as good as my family's version (why grill it when you can smother it in ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar???)

The Best Part Of Thanksgiving. It's just mozzerella cheese, tomatos, and balsamic vinegar but it's just better on Thanksgiving. Soooo good. I'm blaming this on why I had no room for turkey.

Second reason why I had no room for turkey, the perogies. They are their, just covered by the delicious onions.
This is when we all took naps. So I'll break here and save the turkey/shopping post for later!

Project Runway Finale - Carol Hannah - Part 2

Look 7:

This has to be my favorite dress from all of the runway shows of Project Runway. I don't care what she says about it being a show piece I would totally wear that. The shape is completely new, and I'm shocked they didn't compliment her more on it.
Look 8:

The tops really cute, I like how it opens up like that. It also has very pretty detailing. It's too bad she didn't do anything more casual or I'm sure she would have placed higher.
Look 9:

It's pretty, the color's pretty, the draping's pretty but that's really all it is. Just pretty. I was impressed it was her 13th look, but then realized jersey is super easy to work in, especially for fit so no real kudos for that.
Look 10:

Blah. Boring and the sash is ugly. Although with that fabric simple was probably the best way to go.
Look 11:

The more I look at this one the more I like it. It most definitely evokes her fairy tale inspiration, the cape is super cute. I love the color and would definitely wear it. I wish I could say the same for the shorts. They're way to high on the waist and I think would look much better if they were made out of a different fabric. Just too much volume which in shorts isn't really a great look.
Look 12:

Love love love love love. I have no idea why this wasn't mentioned at judging, or why they didn't show it being mentioned at judging. It's a beautiful dress, but more than that it shows artistry and innovation. I've never seen anything like that, and it's still completely wearable. It's difficult to make something that is both innovative and wearable. Grump to you judges. I also really like the styling particularly on this one.
Look 13:

I'm a little confused why she did this as her finale piece. It's pretty much exactly the same as the dress she did for the first challenge, with a more elaborate skirt, and the judges sent her back as safe for that challenge. I could understand going back to it if they loved it. It's not that flattering. The color is off and boring. Her other dresses are beautiful and this one just looks overworked and unflattering.

Overall I thought her collection definitely "told a story" and deserved to win. It's the most different when compared to what else is out there right now and isn't that something that should be rewarded? But it seems like cute, pretty clothes that women want to wear aren't going to win out over the all black "innovative" collection (Irina, Jillian vs. Christian).

Daily Outfit

I just found out my laptop is completely broken (I'm now relying on my fiance to let me use his). Instead of feeling sad about it I decided to dress up for no good reason. We ended up playing Beatles rock band with some friends.
Dress: Thrifted
Boots: DSW

Project Runway Finale - Carol Hannah - Part 1

Carol Hannah's collection was definitely my favorite, probably because it was most my style. I love feminine and pretty dresses, and wish that the judges would value that ascetic more.
Look 1:

This dress is beautiful, too bad Lifetime doesn't have a picture of the side of the dress (grump grump). The draping of the material is amazing, so are the details that you don't really see well on tv. The colors are fantastic together and overall it is just really flattering.
Look 2:

Love love love this skirt. It's so much fun while still being wearable and flattering. Pairing it with a plain top was also a good move because it puts all of the focus on the skirt. The color is also beautiful and subtle. I wish she had gotten more credit for her use of color.
Look 3:

The top is super cute, even with all of the rope details I still think it's flattering. Paired with jeans it could be a great casual look. I'm not a big fan of the pants, they bunch up in a strange way around the ankle.
Look 4:

And clunk. I like that she seemed to be trying something different but I just felt that it was an unflattering shape. Plus it was boring compared to other things she did.
Look 5:

Love this dress. It is an interesting shape at the top and still flattering. Plus the color is gorgeous. I would buy this and just wear it every day if I could. She also did a great job of picking the fabric, it moved beautifully.
Look 6:

I have pretty much the same to say about this dress. The fit is fantastic and I love the detailing and how it cascades down the dress and meshes with the bottom.
That's all for now, looks 7 - 13 coming tomorrow.
