It's arguably the quintessential American holiday, but lately it seems to have been removed from its traditional role
and become a Christmas dress rehearsal.
Personally I think it's high time that, Thanksgiving, and all it symbolizes, experiences a revitalization.
I am a fanatic for seasonal and festive dressing and whenever I get into the spirit of a Holiday I think about what to wear: red and green and gold or silver and blue for Christmas and Channukah, sparkles for New Years, Hats for Easter, etc. But Thanksgiving is tricky, just what constitutes a Thanksgiving outfit? The obvious choose is fall collars of brown, gold, and orange, but that is pretty predictable. I sort of like the idea of something that hearkens to the spirit of the Holiday: home and family. That is why the Bernie Dexter Jodi dress in Home Sweet Home print is to my mind the perfect dress for the day.
The print on the dress, with it's simple and cheerful rendition of a small farming community and horse drawn carriages reminds me of the work of the folk artist Grandma Moses.
Certainly an appropriate choice for Thanksgiving.
The pictures of me wearing the dress here where in August, during my brief fling with blue hair, but I will be wearing it again this Thanksgiving.
