Thanksgiving 2.0: Fashion & Food

Thanksgiving is just a little over a week away. What? I can’t believe it. I feel like the last couple months have been going by so quickly. But either way, what do you wear? What do you cook? I’m here to give you some awesome,curv-ilicious ideas .

First up is your outfit. You want to be able to sleep in, hang out around the family & friends and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (or at least I still watch it!) But you don’t want to totally wig out on fashion, unless you’re staying home alone with the cat. Wait, that’s me! Haha.

So you want to be comfortable but stylish and I’ve found the best layered outfit for this occasion. It’s casual yet chic with a black pant (Living Doll LA) that ends at your ankles to show off some fabulous shoes and a cranberry blouse (H&M) paired under a stylish sweatshirt (H&M) for the nippy weather. Pair with some hot ankle boots (ASOS) for the ride over and you are golden. I finished it off with a classy gold wrist watch (Juicy Couture) for a little glam.

Now, traditional foods for a Thanksgiving feast include turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce amongst other things. But what if you switched it up a bit this year? I always enjoy trying other recipes, just one, during the holidays. And while this one might not hit the table for the feast, depending at what time your family eats, you might want a little holiday snack before (or after) the feast.

Cranberry Brie Grilled Cheese

Recipe originally from Joy The Baker


  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 tbsp whole grain mustard
  • brie cheese (a good hunk of)

Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place bread buttered side down on cutting board and slather one side of the bread with mustard and one side of the bread with cranberry sauce.

Generously smear Brie cheese (rind and all) atop the mustard side of the bread. Join the two slices of bread, but don’t smash them together.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Place sandwich in heated pan butter side down. Flip when bottom has turned a golden brown. Brown on each side. Remove from pan and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing. Slice in two. Serve immediately.
