Intermix Holiday Lookbook

"Welcome to the holidays! The invitations arrive, the plans are made, and the anticipation begins with the question 'What am I going to wear?'... This season we're loving metallics, both the icy tones of silver and gunmetal and the warm glow of gold and bronze.  The decadence of velvet, lace and satin.  The heart-stopping, entrance-making drama of the ultimate red dress.  The perfect finish with one of our exclusive fur vests of jackets, of course." - Adrienne Lazarus, President, Intermix

Below are my favorite looks from the Intermix holiday lookbook - you can shop all the looks here!

Thanksgiving Recipe

This year for Thanksgiving, I'm making dinner for my roommate and myself.  While it won't be anything fancy, there are a few classic dishes we'll prepare for traditions sake.  The recipe below is one of them - a favorite dressing that my Grandma has always made for Thanksgiving.

Cubed bread pieces (about 12 cups)
1 cup or more chopped onion
1 cup or more chopped celery
1 stick of butter

Cook celery and onion in butter until translucent.  Season bread cubes with sage, poultry seasoning, brown sugar and salt.  Add celery and onion to bread mixture.  Mix well.  Cover bowl tightly with aluminum foil and place over double boiler.  Steam stuffing for 1-2 hours.
