The white face of the winter day came sluggishly on...
I don't know if this counts as an outfit photo-- I think it's more of the "look at my pretty new coat!' variety. The day before Thanksgiving we went to a 50% off thrift sale and I picked up lots of good things, this purple scarf being one of them. The coat was from another thrift shop and only $9. And it has a hood! I don't think I own anything else with a hood. Not a bad experience for my first time thrifting here. I've said it before, but I have such a thing for vintage children's coats.
Thanksgiving was excellent. It was our first time cooking a Thanksgiving meal on our own, and we pulled it off! And there was snow! Actually it was more of a snow/rain/ice mixture but it doesn't matter, it's November and there was snow and that's exciting. I was thankful for my family and friends and dogs and the fact that I didn't have to work retail on Black Friday this year.
This morning we braved a few of the sales (not crazy early, just around eight/nine a.m.) and things were mercifully calm. We kept shouting "DOORBUSTERS!" at each other because those commercials are so ridiculous.
