Via coat, Penn State scarf, Halogen purse, gifted-thrifted sweater, Express tee shirt, Betsey Johnson skirt, AA tights, Envy shoes from Modcloth, Juicy Couture necklaceI realized after taking the pictures that you can't see the detail on my skirt! I took one just to show it off, though the color is actually a very pretty cream color with a hint of pink. This was such a steal, only $25 at the Betsey Johnson outlet store (from more than $300). Also, drawstring which is essential for enjoying such a momentous day of feasting. It had to be let out (at least twice!).My mom completely outdid herself this year. Our dinner was incredibly tasty and sustainable. About 80% of the food came fresh from a local farm. The turkey was delivered special from STAR Farm in Kentucky where the birds are truly free-range and raised completely organically as part of the slow food movement. Lately we haven't been eating meat because of the questionable politics and health detriments behind industrially processed animals so this was a very special meal. Of course, since we've been eating so many local in-season veggies my mom made a TON of side dishes and showed off her skill in perfecting veggie heavy dinners.
