The Scene
After work, my mom came over and we cooked. For four hours. This picture really says it all.

To all a happy Turkey Day and to all a good gobble gobble.










The Outfit
J Brand skinny jeans
Old Navy sweater
Burberry trench


The Accessories
Fashion District pashmina and bangles
BCBG boots
Gucci bag and sunglasses
Louis Vuitton earrings
Marc by March Jacobs charm necklace

The Grade
F for functional







The Commentary
Finally it rained last night in Los Angeles. Finally weather below 70 degrees. Finally the chance to layer and show some winter flair. And what do I do? Panic that's what. F.

Got overwhelmed by my closet this morning. Was like one of those women on the Tim Gunn show when they are finally let lose in a department store - eyes agape and immobilized by fear. Ugh.



Kept things simple - cream v-neck, dark jeans, flat boots. Snooooze.






Threw the scarf on in an effort to jazz things up. Meh.











Wish I'd done something a bit more Euro under the fab Burberry.






Or at least rocked my outfit with a bit more attitude. Owned it. Worked it. Sigh.







But in the end, I guess the trench and the boots were actually a good idea.




Cooking is a dirty business. Think that's why I prefer eating.

Cooking is a dirty business, that's why someone besides me should do it.

I am always in charge of only one thing -- watching the dinner rolls. This is the first year in many that I did not mess it up, and everybody rejoiced they did not burn.

Yes, I cannot even monitor an oven adequately.

Hope your T-day was fab!

although i'm no martha stewart... yet... i can bake a tasty morsel from time to time. my holiday tip for you non-cooks: find a unique recipe and make it your signature holiday dish. i like baking because it is way easier than cooking actual dinner items and people tend to remember a good cookie over a good scoop of butternut squash.

Too adorable. Glad that you can share in the holiday cooking with your mom... i'm sure she loves you for it :-)

My addition to the holiday feast this year was my second attempt at brussel sprouts! I loved them... not sure my companions did though. Those bad boys have a stigma that must be shaken.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving. And I was there for the rain! It was actually pretty hard. Hope cooking went well.

The expression on your face is priceless!!

I channel my inner domestic goddess every one in a while. But I'll admit I'm a lil surprised by the turkey trash bag. Was Mama D transporting it back to her pad? Or is this a new cooking trend I'm not aware of?

mar5195, my mom marinades (is that the word?) the turkey over night in the bag. In the morning she had me flip the turkey in the bag of juices. i dunno anything more than that. i just follow her directions.

i actually cooked my first t-day dinner this year, from scratch, in about 2 hours (we only did a turkey breast instead of a full bird). i was beyond proud of myself, esp in light of all the other crap i've been dealing with.

happy belated turkey day!
