HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

'Tis the day to stuff your face with delicious food!

We hope you have a lovely holiday! Jess will be working and spending time with her fiancé, while Jill is off to Florida to see family and friends, but we both know the day will end in food comas for the both of us.

We are thankful for everything in our lives, especially our blog, and people like YOU who read it!

10 EASY THANKSGIVING DISHES

With a Friendsgiving here and Thanksgiving there, there a lot of dishes to prepare and bring, but let's be real - my cooking skills suck. I don't want to succumb to bringing pre-made dish from the supermarket, but I also want to spare my friends and family a meal they have to pretend they enjoy. The thing is, it's already Tuesday and there's no time for any practice dishes! But don't worry, I've found 10 easy and simple salads, side dishes, and desserts for you to whip up and impress that yes, you actually did make that. Just get ready for them to invite you to every future potluck now.

JILL'S AMAS RED CARPET RECAP

From Oscar-worthy gowns to short little dresses (and even painted on shirts - WTF?!), Last night's AMAs had a variety of fashions. You never know what is going to show up on these celebrities, and while there usually isn't any garment to go Taylor-Swift-Blank-Space insane over, there were some worth discussing. Here are my favorites and not-so favorites!

Best

Kendall Jenner in Yigal Azrouel: Kendall > Kardashians. That is all.


Kate Beckinsale in Kaufman Franco: Usually Giuliana Rancic's red carpet freak-outs make me roll my eyes hard, but this time, I totally get it. Kate looks amazing in this white gown, proving white after Labor Day is always acceptable (especially with that body).


Selena Gomez in Giorgio Armani Prive: 90% of the reason she was one of my favorites was the plunging back-line. Also loved her red earrings, pulled back hair, and arm parties.


Worst

Zendaya in Georgine: She missed the train wreck that was the Aaliyah Lifetime movie, but looks like she couldn't dodge this one. She is drowning in all of that fabric. Someone save her.


Heidi Klum in Versace: This outfit will hit a Wet Seal store near you in 3... 2...


Mary Lambert: Funny thing is, I think she looks good and I don't mind the dress. But if you aren't going to take the time to steam your clothes before you step out on a red carpet, you deserve to be on the worst dressed list. I have strong feelings on this.

FAVORITO FRIDAY: SOLANGE'S WEDDING DRESS

Let's talk about how ah-mazing Solange Knowles's wedding dress was! 

While she had six (yes, six) different outfits of various shades of white and ivory for her wedding weekend, her wedding dress stole the show... As it should, of course. Designed by Humberto Leon for Kenzo, this sleek and stunning dress, complete with a train-like cape, was a fun and modern twist to a traditional gown. I've wanted something completely different for my own wedding, and I have definitely found the bridal inspiration I've been looking for! (And one heck of a honorable mention to Jenna Lyons's outfit.)
