A Day of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving



"Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds." ~Theodore Roosevelt

"We give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way." ~Author Unknown

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." ~Thornton Wilder

"Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action." ~W.J. Cameron

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." ~Melody Beattie

May you all have an absolutely beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving Day! :)

O is for One-Piece Swimsuit


Hello my Dear Readers! I hope you're having a Fabulous Wednesday! Today I am sharing another excerpt from the book The One Hundred by Nina Garcia..."A Guide To The Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own." It shares the A-Z staples each woman should have in her wardrobe, and today we are continuing on with the letter O. :)


O is for One-Piece Swimsuit:


Ms. Garcia writes:

"The Bikini has become the fashion favorite, but there are some occasions when a bikini is not going to cut it. For those moments a one-piece (or maillot, if we're being proper) is as essential as the little black dress. It can make you appear thinner, cover up areas that may not be bikini-ready or a midsection that has not yet been sun-kissed. It is obviously the way to go if you are vacationing after a Thanksgiving holiday or a New Year's celebration. Hey, even the best of us skip Pilates from time to time."

SUCH OPTIONS!

* Go for an all-black suit. It will always be slimming and elegant. If you can find it with an attachable belt, or pair it up with one of your own choosing, even better.

* An all-white one-piece can be slimming and elegant too—but just be sure it's not see-through. Beyond tacky.

* Look for suites during the off-season, too. This will take the stress out of having to shop for one that you may need that very afternoon and/or weekend.

* See designers in Bikini (#8) for my favorites. (Onda de Mar, Rosa Chá, Eres, Ralph Lauren, Thomas Maier)



CLOSET OBSESSION: ERES SWIMSUITS

"Eres swimsuits have been a French institution since 1968, and fashion insiders have been bringing them back from Paris for decades. The appeal of the Eres swimsuit is that the fabric is as light as possible, contours to the body like a second skin, and there is a skill to the cut that magically disguises any flaws. It is impeccably designed to be both flattering and fashionable, and every season the company comes out with a suit that is sure to be the one that the hottest A-list celebrity wears, which then means the piece is completely sold out the very next day. Luckily, you no longer have to be a fashion insider with a plane ticket to Paris to get your hands on one of these suits, too. In 2000, Eres launched in the United States and has since become a true favorite among American women."

(All of the information above is from the book.)


As Ms. Garcia mentioned, shopping for a swimsuit off-season will help take the stress out of finding the perfect one, not to mention you may find a really great deal on an otherwise expensive suit that is perfect for you. Here are a handful to look at, some of which are her preferred designers:


*La Blanca by Rod Beattie 'Sweetheart' One Piece

Are you a fan of the One-Piece swimsuit? Do you have a preferred designer or brand? Do you purchase off-season or wait until the warm weather returns before buying? Please do share! :)
