Thankful for Sparkles & Elastic Waistbands

I have no sympathy for those who complain at Thanksgiving dinner for being too full when they are wearing jeans, dress pants, or even chinos – rookie mistake. We were given the elastic waistband for a reason. Today I looked pretty derrrnnn fancy, but I was still comfortable enough in my Express sequined mini skirt (with a very stretchy waistband) to consume 2 Thanksgiving dinners. Yes, that’s right – dos meals – deux. It’s hardly a 4X Gilmore Girls feast, however, it’s harder than it sounds. You don’t want to offend any grandmas by passing on their famous stuffing or the 24 pound turkey. Elastic is the way to go. This is also a great example of how you can get away with mixing textures and patterns. I think people shy away from purchasing pieces like sequin minis because they aren’t sure what to pair them with. Who says you have to wear a boring solid blouse? Why not pair it with a great pattern like I have here!? I love this look. The skirt is more versatile than you would think. Be brave! Happy Thanksgiving and gobble gobble!
