Hey Fancy pants!  Hopefully, you have done all your groceries shopping and recipe preparations, and set the table in a festive way.  All you have to do now is figure out what to wear on the food-filled Holiday?

Must wear something comfortable, so you can move around the kitchen and cook in.  A bit glamorous too of course - it is a Holiday...but has room for expansion, as the courses pile up on your plate.

Pretty Little Things in Forest Park always has the most lovely hand -made items on offer, our own little 'Anthro' - as I like to refer to this shop.  This cotton 'bird' skirt, here on Binky is a bit hippie-chic, and it's comfy drop waist is perfect for indulging in a second piece of pie.  Don a pair soft, cropped giraffe pants, after the guests leave and you are left with the dishes.  Head in early for their Black Friday party!

Majama's in Oak Park is a logical place to stake out my 'eating pants'.  Germaine has a great legging - super comfortable waist band (thick and very expandable) that looks great with high boots and a glammy tunic or a casual dress; available in charcoal, black and cocoa $39.   Another option is the Shale Pant that has front and back pin-tucks - slimming from the front & the back; also perfect for long flights & casual evenings.  Available in black and charcoal $48, Made in Chicago!

Upcoming events at the store: Nov 30th & Dec 1st : 'The Big Idea Show' for little ones to celebrate it's 13th year; cupcakes, birthday hat decorating & photo op w/ Josie, the Golden Retriever.
