Grapes & gratitude.

dsc06491 dsc06468 When: Thanksgiving Day, 2008.

Femme What: Sweater dress by Dolce, green belted trench by Do & Be, brown chevron tights from Old Navy. Skinny brown belt by Elie Tahari, olive green knit socks by some fancy Italians (I can't remember the brand, sob) and Donald J. Pliner boots. For the trek to the actual river, I wore my awesome "hiking" boots from El Mexico. They are the only boots, aside from my Noconas, that haven't got a 4" min. heel!

Femme Scent: Serge Lutens Chêne, of course.

Femme Confession: I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.

My top three thanks, for the record:

My precious girls. My resilient health, while it lasts. The dearest, most clever, loyal and affectionate friends a girl could wish for.

Tomboy What: Awesome bear sweater from Express, shirt from Banana Republic (with vintage fleur-de-lys cuff links - a bit much, I KNOW), brown label jeans from Lounge, and brown boots from Harley-Davidson.

Tomboy Confession: I started the day with a completely different outfit: black slacks, a black blazer and the same green shirt (silver and black griffin cuff links from Ben Sherman instead of gold fleur-de-lys ones) and black boots. I only changed because my black boots provide absolutely no traction! Since the trek down to the river is the absolute highlight of my dogs' lives, I changed into something more "outdoorsy."

Second Tomboy Confession: I ate about 100 grapes from the vines to and from the river!
