Attention: We Just Found The Perfect Thanksgiving Outfit

Pair-With

This is a Shoppist PSA; we just found the most glorious midi skirt to wear to Thanksgiving dinner. An hour ago, vintage boutique Wilbur tweeted the above mohair fringe skirt as a new addition to their Etsy shop. I mean, just look at it: an autumnal color scheme, a forgiving a-line shape, and it rings in at only $40. To celebrate this festive find, we picked out the sweater and booties we’d pair for this holiday look. Just beware: the skirt is vintage and there’s only one, so be quick! (Or, ya know, we might just buy it.)

Buy Right Now: Lafayette Kanard’s Hand-Painted Limited-Edition Tees At Joan Shepp

LK

(Left) Kustoms By L.K. tees at Joan Shepp; (right) how to wear it.

I’m not a t-shirt person—at all. I feel like standard tees are boxy and unflattering (I’ve never met a t-shirt sleeve I haven’t hated).  The only way I will wear a t-shirt: If it’s impossibly paper-thin and very, very slouchy (really more of a tunic than a shirt), or if it’s one of Lafayette Kanard‘s hand-painted designs.

Market Report: Does Dry Shampoo Cause Hair Loss?

  • After dry shampoo devotees started noticing thinning on their most-spritzed patches, word began to spread that dry shampoo’s oil-sucking qualities might—yikes—cause hair loss. Turns out, what you really need is an anti-dandruff shampoo. [Jezebel]
  • Holiday parties are right around the corner. It’s time to zero in on that made-for-your-complexion red lipstick (that also makes your teeth look impossibly white). [Huffington Post]
  • If you’re thinking of donning the whimsically chic sheer trend this season, these are the tips you need to know (like, what lingerie to wear and can anyone really pull off head-to-toe sheer?). [The Coveteur]

Behold, The Most Stylish Rain Boots Ever Made

BOOTS

I have a pair of Hunter rain boots that I pull out every time it rains. They are over-the-knee, sand-colored Wellies, with a chunky heel and laces that criss-cross up the entire front of the boot. These boots are kick-ass, puddle-stomping, I-fear-neither-rain-nor-sleet-nor-apocalypse boots, and I love them. (So, too, does everyone else: Men, women and children have complimented these boots; I believe animals and newborns would, too, if they could talk.)

As I received yet another compliment on the boots this morning—this time by a friendly, non-creepy man on my train, who always has his nose in a newspaper and is certainly not the least bit interested in fashion—I decided I’d spread the love and tell you where you can get your own pair of Kick-Ass Puddle Stompers. Sadly, though, they are not available any longer … but these are, and I think they might be ever cooler.

Mary Clark has been a fixture on the knitting scene (yes, there is a knitting scene) for some time. Vagabond devotees know this; the Old City boutique, which she co-founded, sells luxe yarns and other knitting supplies. These shoppers also know to be on the lookout for Stellapop, Clark’s line of handmade sweaters that have garnered a cult following. And we’re not the only ones: Her cozy pieces have made their way onto the sales floors—both real and virtual—of major retailers like Barney’s, Steven Alan and Anthropologie.
