Wears: Thanksgiving Classic

I know, I know, if you are on a diet you should wear conscious hugging clothing to make sure you don’t over eat on thanksgiving.  Make it easier for yourself, eat healthy the day before and the day after and say no to leftovers.  Thanksgiving is your day.  Keep it loose and classic.  Nobody wants to watch football or wash dishes in a dress that requires spanx.  Keep Thanksgiving simple in a Chris Benz dress (pants not required) that is flattering on every figure or go for J. Crew and a full skirt and top made for any woman.  Either one you will be comfortable falling asleep on the couch after dinner and before desert.

Deal of the Day: Derek Lam Chinz Tweed Pencil Skirt $199
Myhabit.com is currently having a flash sale with designer Derek Lam. There are many cute pieces but I find this tweed skirt is a staple that will last a lifetime. I am not a huge fan of the shirt it is matched with and feel a button down shirt is it’s precise match. Perfect for the holiday season,and in-and-out of the office. It’s a steal for $199.

Hope Global Financial Dignity Summit

Today, I am heading to the Hope Global Financial Dignity Summit. The guest speakers include the U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Hip-Hop Mogul Russell Simmons.

Below is a brief description of the event taken from the Hope Global Financial Dignity Summit website.

The Global Financial Dignity Summit is expecting an audience of more than 1,000 delegates, from 50 countries. The Global Financial Dignity Summit Plenary sessions and Financial inclusion Working Group sessions will touch on powerful, inspirational and aspirational themes that speak to the future of “making free enterprise work for all.” These themes include but are not limited to (a) how free enterprise and responsible capitalism can actually be used as a powerful tool to empower and uplift the underserved and the working class, as well as to grow and to stabilize a middle class. (b) Proposals to formalize financial literacy and financial dignity coursework as a requirement in K-12 schools, and as a new ‘civil rights’ issue for this generation. (c) Taking initiatives like the Gallup 100-year commitment to U.S. public schools to spark a movement that reconnects the power of education with the power of aspiration (utilizing measureable youth economic energy and a quadrupling of business role models in schools). (d) Considering the vastly untapped power of small business creation and entrepreneurship in growing jobs and local GDP growth. (d) And finally, your own bold thought leadership ideas, such as a ‘bank account for all,’ from birth.

What the food and service at Guy Fieri’s Times Square establishment conjure is pure bafflement, among other things.

I want to do all my reviews in this form.  Hilarious!

The leather skirt is shiny but isn’t it delicious just the same.The slit is the perfect length to let people know -
A) Yes, I do take a 6am spinning class
B) Yes, I did turn down the role as a bond girl.

I know the see through slits makes it difficult to wear this dress to work or many other places. Get creative. Bring out the cute blazer. Find a cream or black sweater and a faux-alligator belt. It might require some Spanx or a slip. Make it happen Fashionistas.
