What I Wore On Thanksgiving

Morning Readers,

Today I'm complying with a request from my lovely friend, Grace, over at Camp Patton. My sweet darlings, you know I'm not the biggest fan of taking pictures of myself, but, prompted by the courage coffee, a soundtrack of 50 Cent, and a few effects gifted from the awesome Pic Monkey, here it is.

...then again, you may all be out punching people in the face for the last of the Black Friday, dollar-fifty, mittens at your nearest retailer, so maybe none of you will see this.

Outfit:

Hair: Styled by the city's water supply

Feather Earrings: Spotted and bought off Pinterest (unsure what poor bird is currently flying lopsided)

Top/dress/tunic/frightening body garb being stretched to the limits: Forever 21

Sweater Tights: Target (stitched from the wool of one of the toughest sheep roaming the earth)

Boots: Steve Madden (upon reflection, would not have paired boots with this outfit and opted for black ones, but since I didn't look in the mirror before I left, thems the breaks. Also why Style Magazine has yet to offer me a job covering any fashion week ever.)

There you have it.

Now, get out there and shop bravely, my friends.

Until Next Time, Readers!

  1. You look amazing.

    I just bought a tall pair of brown boots (Dr Martens) because they're called "Leanne." I'm normally an all-black woman. What do I wear brown boots with?

    Yes, I"m asking you for fashion advice.

    Happy belated American Thanksgiving.

    1. Honestly, sometimes I buy things just because it has my name in the brand. No worries. Thank you for being so sweet!

      I've always worn black, up until late last year, and I'm still not great at pairing them with anything. Grace's blog is the best for that. The girl can seriously put together an outfit. I tend to pair brown boots with a cream sweater or flannel.

      But it does prompt the question as to whether funny ladies get the funny gene and not the fashion sense one? We need to do some research, my friend.

    2. Ha. We need to have a dress-the-funny-women-so-they-don't-look-funny blog post. Or something.

    3. Agreed. Because we want to be laughed at, not laughed ...at how we look? Yep, we may be a lost cause...LOL.

  2. As Billy Crystal said, "You look marvelous!" You don't want to see my Thanksgiving outfit--I wasn't feeling well, so I missed dinner & spent the day in pajamas, in bed!

    1. Pajamas? Bed? Why wasn't this offered as an option yesterday??? And thank you to both you and Billy Crystal...:)

  3. Wait a second. I was under the impression that you had recently had a baby. But no, that's not possible...because look at you and your skinny minnie hotness!

    1. Angles, angles ...it's all about the angles, my friend. But thank you! You're one to talk, btw. You look fabulous!

  4. So, now there's this picture and I'm gonna have to call B.S. on #7 from your top ten list. Stomach dragging on the floor...whatev! Either that or you have discovered the most badass Spanx on the planet.

    Seriously...you look great. And I really wish they would change the name of Forever 21. It makes me feel ridiculous.

    1. I'm going to put heavy emphasis on camera angle, so photo shoppy blurriness, and the fact those tights conceal the elasticity that's completely gone from my stomach. Everything falls out when I bend over, make no mistake. But, I shall take your compliment, love it forever and skip away before it's retracted...LOL

      Also, can we change it to "Forever Expanding" and be done with it?

  5. Paige, you look truly amazing and beautiful. I was debating how my brown leather Uggs would go with black leggings and I think you sold me on a new outfit that I can probably whip together out of my closet. So thanks for that and truly loved the outfit on you :) :)

    1. Janine, you are the sweetest! I'm secretly (not so secret anymore) thinking about getting a pair of Uggs, but I may wait to snag some after Christmas. I have the knock-off kind and wear them with all sorts of things. Your brown ones would look great with black leggings. You gotta follow Grace though. She does a great job of setting everyone on a proper style path ....and I need it. Believe you me.

  6. Hola Paige!
    You look fantabulous! Didn't you just have a baby? Or was that a pillow under your clothes? Just kiddin'...you really look great!

    1. Hey Myra! Why thank you very much. I wish it had been like taking a pillow out from under my shirt. Ahhh, that would've been wonderful. No luck, there, but you're one of the sweetest people ever. Hope everything's been going well since the move!

  7. Girl, you look damn good for just having babies! I think we can now all call your bluff. P.S. I wore a Forever 21 top on Thanksgiving, too. I don't care if I am double the age of the store. It worked for me.

    1. I'll probably always sneak into Forever 21 and buy things while pushing people out of the way with my stroller. Just don't ask me to pull off pleather leggings. Probably not going to happen. Thank you for being so sweet, Kathy!

  8. You look great, Paige! You always joke about your clothes not fitting since the baby, but I could never tell you just had a baby. Way to go!

    1. And that's why you're one of my favorite people ever, Piper....:) Thank you, but I'm now convinced I'll be wearing tights forever and ever...amen.

  9. out of everyone that participated I think I'm most excited that YOU did ... don't tell.

    and I am with every other commenter's comment and reader's thought .... UM .... you hired a surrogate? you look awesome. and I want your hair. just a lock?

    hope the kids are staying in line today ... and hoping there is some weird geographic shift and STL and KC are suddenly right next door to each other.

    1. Ha! I'm happy to comply just. this. once. And you look more fabulous pregnant than I do when I'm not. So there. Also, I'm still waiting for that geographical shift. Scientists say it should happen somewhere around January, when cabin fever gets the best of me and I just start driving in your general direction.

    1. Hi, Blog Sister Wife! I knew this, but it's nice to know you care. Even if we weren't blog sister wives, I still feel like we have to be related somehow.

  11. If I looked like you, I'd be posting pictures of myself all over this blog!!

    2) i love when you post pictures of yourself, do it more

    1. You can most certainly borrow the outfit, as soon as you pack everyone up and move out here to keep me company. We can herd the toddlers together and set them loose on an unsuspecting park somewhere.

      By the way, I've seen your pictures, and you look pretty darn fabulous for JUST having a baby five seconds ago.

  13. Cute. Love the patterned drapes. Happy (extra belated) Thanksgiving to you and yours!! Was reading your 'Saturdays masquerading as Mondays' blog post and this post was suggested. Which I then had to read, because it's Friday at work and I'm clearly working really hard.

    Also, I think the boots were a solid choice. they complement the orange :)
