Thanksgiving is tomorrow, just in case you didn't know, and I thought this outfit would be a perfect complement for the day's festivities. A rich and comfortable teal dress, vintage handbag, versatile necklace and super comfortable heels that you could wear all could you go wrong? 

As you can see below, teal looks fabulous on every skin tone!

"Colors on opposite sides of the color wheel enhance each other, which is why strawberries look so good packaged in green containers, Eiseman says. It's not surprising that teal―Pantone 19-4227 TC, the color-wheel opposite of pink―plays up a healthy flush in the skin. Plus, it's more versatile than a bright, summery turquoise, so you can wear it well into the fall with black, brown, and other neutrals." Real Simple Magazine

  1. I never knew that teal looked so good on everybody...but it really does! I need to look at wearing it more...and love that vintage brown alligator purse! Happy Thanksgiving! Caroline

  2. Hard to believe you can find such fashionable and current styles at a "gently used" store...another great way to recycle. I'm all for it!
