Thursday Moda #90: The Perfect Trendy+Cozy Dress for Thanksgiving.

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving! I cannot believe that turkey day is tomorrow and Christmas is just a month way. To say that Vivian is excited for Christmas and get presents would be an understatement lol, especially since she saw Santa on Sunday. Anyhow, I am running my Thursday Moda linkup a day early today due to the holiday tomorrow. But I will have a Throwback Thursday post tomorrow highlighting some outfits I have previously worn that would be perfect for the Holiday season, so welcome back tomorrow!

Speaking of Holiday looks, I think this dress is perfect for this festive season, especially to wear tomorrow for Thanksgiving where you will be eating a lot. It is a cozy, thick knit and the swing style makes it perfect for you to hide a generous amount of food lol. Plus I love the color of this dress and the double bell sleeves. I would describe the color as a Heather Purple, which made it perfect for me to pair with those OTK Grey Boots. And of course my Long Beaded Colorful Necklace (I cannot stop wearing these last few months because it has the perfect colors for Fall+Winter), the Gorgeous Pina Studs and my Makeup and Curly Hair dress this casual, cozy look a little bit. These are second-day curls, not too shabby hmm?! 

And you have seen my Dark Green+Black Marled Long Cozy Coatigan with pockets not too long ago (last week and 2 weeks ago). This is the third week in a row I have blogged it, sorry not sorry. This cardigan is so thick and warm, it replaces a coat. I wish it had a couple of those peacoat type of button but if it gets colder you can add a thick knit or blanket scarf underneath it and belt it. I'd say this coatigan (coat+cardigan) would be perfect for cool but not too cold weather, let's say 42°F or more.

Thank you to all of you for stopping by here daily to read and see my latest outfit posts and more. I want to thank all of you who take time out of their day to comment here or catch up with me on Instagram. Blogging is a lot of hard work and I take pride (and joy) in what I do. I don't always have my shit together and I don't always put together the prettiest or best outfits because I am a human and I ain't perfect. But everything you see here is real and genuine and I write what comes from the heart. I also post what I wear in real life. Thank you again to you - THE READERS - for making my blog and my linkup "Thursday Moda" every Thursday, a success. I look forward to seeing all your beautiful outfits you link up with me each week and I always have a hard time choosing favorites or highlighting a particular blogger. Happy Thanksgiving to you all and check out my favorite looks below, from last week. I see lots of pretty pendant necklaces + pendant earrings below and I spot some floral and leopard too (pun intended). Several of these outfits are perfect for the holidays.
Today's Featured Blogger is JOI from In My Joi who Joi-ned the linkup (see what I did there?! LOL) with not one but two beautiful masculine looks. I think it is hard to do a masculine-inspired outfit and still look 100% womanly, feminine and sexy but Joi did just that in her 'Cocktail Hour' black suit-like outfit which she paired with a stunning peppermint-striped bow tie and a mini jubox sparkly cross-body purse. And she did it again in a 'Leopard Stripe' combination with those wide-leg tuxedo pants, fabulous leo-print moto jacket and a bubblegum pink blouse. Joi is one of those women that can wear anything and look good in everything. I have only discovered her blog a few months ago but she shocks me with the incredible, stylish, trendy and unique outfits she comes up with. She is a great inspiration for all plus size women out there. She is proof that despite your size, age, height, ethnicity or race you can wear anything you want and look wonderful doing so, as long as you have confidence. Joi is beautiful and she shines every time. I just love her blog and style, so much. Make sure you follow her if you don't, yet.

In her 'Two Thanksgiving Outfits' Alison stays true to her stay-at-home but super chic mom style. Her monochrome look is actually two colors: gray and olive.
Shea is in a 'Floral Swing Dress for Fall' complete with a cream infinity scarf, chocolate OTK suede boots, grey felt hat and teal light leather earrings. All those colors are an autumnal rainbow.
Valerie is in a little black dress by 'Chico's Traveler's Collection' and I can totally see this dress for all seasons and all continents. Love her pops of silver and grey here. She kept it simple and classic.
Jacqui did a 'Throwback Thursday' type of post where among others she shared this rainbow palm-print beautiful midi dress. She is ready for a horse race - just add a fancy little hat.
Cherie features 'The Fable' - a brand that makes classic silk shirts. She wore a cream button-down silk shirt of theirs with the most fabulous faux fur leopard coat.
