This is the last Thirsty Thursday of 2010! So here is the last look of the year!

Lala Vazquez was spotted at the Hollywood Style Awards in this gorgeous leopard print dress. This dress is sophisticated, yet sexy and Lala is definitely working it. The dress makes a statement and so all of her accessories and makeup are kept simple. I think this look was styled perfectl. *kudos to the stylist*

So its one of my favorite times of the year again: THANKSGIVING! I love the meaning of the holiday because it is all about giving. The spirit of generosity should not be confined to one day, it should be year round, but for some it is so lets just make the best of it.

Besides this time being about the spirit of giving, it is also about spending time with family, friends, and eating great food! I told my cousin who is the family chef that I’m looking forward to some fried turkey, mac and cheese, potato salad, collard greens, sweet potato pie…I’ll stop there lol. So here are my suggestions for looking stylish, feeling comfortable, and camoflaging the thanksgiving food belly

1. Comfort is key! Wear things that stretch

  • Leggings
  • Tights

Choose a funky design or pattern or stick with the basic colors

Republic $27

Mod Cloth Stripe for Success Tights $35

2. So now that we are in our comfort zone with leggings/tights we need to pair them with something that is roomy to hide the bulge

  • Oversized or belted cardigans and sweaters
  • Ruffled Tunics

Anything large that gives your midsection enough room for expansion is key

Yes Style $42

Old Navy Jet Sweater Cardigan $45

Dorothy Perkins Animal Print Ruffled Tunic $50

This thanksgiving I’ll probably wear one of my many sweater dresses (I have more than enough to choose from) So here are some options for the all-in-one look

Alloy Megan Dolman Sweater Dress $42

Yes Style Knit Sweater Dress $44

Jane Norman Sweater Dress $42

As for the footwear, take it simple 5-inch pumps is a bit much for grandma’s kitchen. Try a cute pair of embellished ballet flats, riding boots, flat over the knee boots, or a cute lace up or wedge bootie. Anything over 3 inches may cause a serious side-eye.

Happy Eating!

The one accessory perfect for highlighting any outfit is a great handbag. We all know that Rebecca Minkoff, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Cole Haan and Chanel are great designers with AMAZING handbags, but for some of us, those prices are not very practical. I have found great handbags that will make any outfit look amazing and the best part is, they are all under $50. Check out the Fab Bags Under $50.

I don’t know if you can really call this a trend because some women have been wearing ruffles for decaes, but this look was seen all over the A/W 2010 runways during fashion week. This “trend” is very feminine and chic. Great for a casual look, work, or a night on the town. This fall, go beyond tops and dresses, look for ruffled skirts, jackets, and also accessories like shoes and bags. Because of the volume of the ruffles, this look should be paired with tailored itmes like a slim jacket, or a slim/sleek pants. Here are a few pieces that will definitely ruffle some feathers.
