New York City around the holidays-there’s nothing like it-It’s a city filled with traditions. None more iconic than the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade!
Now you know I was thrilled to see HK’s debut!
Click to see all pictures from the parade!
I cannot remember the last parade I went too. All I remember is that Captain America was still a balloon….YEAH, I KNOW! I felt like such a kid cheering and smiling from ear-to-ear, it was a great start to one of my favorite holidays. Most, if not all, to blame for my pre-Christmas jolliness was the fact that The Hubb and The Kid had never been to the parade! AT ALL! EVER! Their first one was with me ^_^
After standing around for 5 hours in Little Brazil, we rush to Mom’s to change and head to Long Island. Going out there is a tradition as old as me..maybe older I don’t know for sure. My mother is originally from L.I, and told me I spent my first year of life out there..imagine me in suburbia? Sitcom-status. Going out there is the last bit of my childhood I don’t ever want to let go. It has stayed the same for 20-something years, get there-eat-pass out, its hard to get that kinda stability from anything in this day and age.Cell phone plans included. On to my outfit for dinner!
All that really matters to me about this outfit are my coat and shoes. I love Houndstooth, and it’s one of this seasons major trends.
- Coat: Voluptuous Vixens
- Sweater dress: Dress Barn(gift from mommy :)
- Shoes: Iron Fist for Just Fabulous
Let me take a moment and gawk at these platforms:
Now these are some edgy oxfords!
I’m 5’9” barefoot..in these 6 inch puppies, I’m 6’4”. Do I care that it makes me a giant? Chest, legs, and butt to the sky? No, sir..Do I care that it makes my already strong legs look as if I just shot em full of steroids? Well, yeah, kinda but that goes with them being 6 FRIGGIN INCHES! The higher the heel, the bigger/curvier/stronger your calf will appear. There has been so many discussions on how a taller/plus sized woman doesn’t “belong in heels”…screw them! If you love it, ROCK IT! Read my review of these babies here.
I have found the shoe-goldmine…and its name…JustFab.com!
‘Till next time!
