Izzy: Hello all you Turkeys and Fixin’s!
Elsa: Getting excited about Thanksgiving, are we?
Izzy: What’s there not to like about a holiday that encourages you to eat until you are literally stuffed. Even if you’re a turkey!
Elsa: Especially if you are a turkey. May Tom Rest in Peace.
Izzy: You name your dinner?
Elsa: He was a friend.
Izzy: Okay, now you’re scaring me… you’re eating your friends. Am I next?
Elsa: No. I think you’d be too bitter.
Izzy: You skank!
Elsa: Now, now, Izzy… I’m kidding about the friend part. Maybe you’re just hungry.
Izzy: Hangry-ism is a real thing, people.
Elsa: By the way, i’m excited to see the dress you will be wearing to Petcon!!
Izzy: Thank you! I love my dress better than Thanksgiving dressing. Speaking of that, do you have your Thanksgiving outfit picked-out?
Elsa: Yes! I have the perfect “Going to Grandma’s for Thanksgiving Outfit!”
Izzy: Is that the official title?
Elsa: Actually, yes.
Izzy: How do you determine the best … umm…whatever you called it.. “Going to Grandma’s for Thanksgiving Outfit?”
Elsa: Well, there are a few factors that should be considered. First, your Thanksgiving outfit should have a fall or neutral color scheme, like our first guest today.
Izzy: I could eat her up!! She looks like a bowl full of gravy!
Elsa: I assume that is a compliment?
Izzy: If you knew how much I loved gravy you wouldn’t even question me!
Elsa: This monochromatic outfit is so chic. It’s creamy and rich and very luxe.
Izzy: The fur trim is so luxurious and looks so sophisticated.
Elsa: Don’t you just love the bows? They’re from @susanlancidesigns.The use of two bows is such a fun and unique idea. The print bow brings out the rich colors of the fur and the bow on her back brings a nice and neutral contrasting look.
Izzy: The touch of bling at the knots lends a sophisticated look. She looks like a creamy mocha.
Elsa: Oh great, you’re hungry again! I really hate doing shows with you when you’re hungry.
Izzy: Then you must always hate doing shows with me because I am ALWAYS hungry.
Elsa: Ha, ha! Well, I’ll just have to remember to bring snacks.
Izzy: Now, that’s a plan!!
Elsa: As I was saying, a Thanksgiving outfit should be in a beautiful fall tone, just like this lovely example. Ready for rule number two?
Izzy: I’m guessing the rule number two is to accessorize?
Elsa: Not exactly, but maybe that should be our new rule. Rule number two is to be comfortable. Nothing can ruin a holiday like being uncomfortable. Wear clothes that are loose fitting and have room to move.
Izzy: So you can fill it in with food.
Elsa: I suppose. But another reason to wear loose clothes is for your own comfort. You don’t want to wear clothing that will ruin your fun or make you irritable.
Izzy: YES! No grumpy grumps at Thanksgiving at my house.
Elsa: I do love your idea of accessorizing too. As you can see in our example here, this handsome gentleman is wearing a simple, loose fitting top, that is nice on its own. However, the addition of the @uniqlo hat and @burberry scarf elevates it to a whole new level of awesome!
Izzy: Want to see another great Thanksgiving day choice?
Elsa: This is adorable! And it is the perfect example of rule number three.
Izzy: Which is…
Elsa: If you’re not sure how everyone else is going to be dressed, go dress-casual.
Izzy: This dress is perfect. A dress is automatically thought of as being a little bit dressy, but it’s denim, so it’s also considered to be quite informal.
Elsa: This is also a great example of how to accessorize like a boss!
Izzy: A good accessory can really make an outfit pop!
Elsa: And this little Miss follows all the rules… she chose a neutral colored outfit. It’s also loose fitting and comfy and the style is a nice mix of sophisticated and casual.
Izzy: And don’t forget my rule!!
Elsa: Yes… and accessorized!
Izzy: Like a boss.
Izzy: You’re a rule follower too, aren’t you Elsa?
Elsa: I suppose I am. Rules help to assure a safe and civilized society.
Izzy: Here’s someone who breaks all the rules and just may not be safe nor civilized.
Elsa: Oh goodness! This is an example of what NOT to wear to Thanksgiving dinner.
Izzy: So many places to start.
Elsa: The Elmo hat is almost unbearable. The color… the style…
Izzy: NOT what I had in mind when I suggested accessorizing. I should have been clearer about that.
Elsa: Not a neutral color.
Izzy: You are correct, Captain Obvious!
Elsa: You sure are spicy!
Izzy: This doesn’t even look comfortable.
Elsa: Which violates rule number two! This certainly wouldn’t classify as sophisticated or even casual… not sure what it is.
Izzy: It’s a violation of all fashion rules that have existed ever.
Elsa: I do like the floral pattern. I think it would be nicer as curtains in an old farm house, but it is charming.
Izzy: You always do that.. You always look for the positive.
Elsa: I like being positive and really, that’s all I could find that was nice to say.
Izzy: And you call me mean.
Elsa: You are sometimes a wee bit insulting.
Izzy: At least I don’t eat my friends for dinner.
Elsa: Again… I don’t eat my friends. Sheesh
Izzy: Happy Thanksgiving, you friend-eater.
Elsa: Happy Thanksgiving, Izzy.
Izzy and Elsa: Stay Fabulous, Fashionistas!
