Shopping At Nasty Gal For Your Last Minute Thanksgiving Outfit Is Actually An Awesome Use Of Your Time

Oh, Nasty Gal: with your Vintage Chanel, #FreeTheNipple bags, clear platform sandals and now, a new store in Melrose. You are known, loved and [sometimes] even shamed for your kick ass, oftentimes absurd and bizarre fashion and accessories -- and you have been on all our minds recently. Whilst my biggest qualm with you is that your size range is still minimal and not very fat-friendly, this fact has never stopped me from finding something to call my own on your website: my own little slice of bedazzled, cropped, sliced, platformed, furry goodness. You're too peculiar not to love. And so, dear Nasty Gal, I think you are the perfect place to do some last minute Thanksgiving shopping at.

OK -- so that's my love letter to Nasty Gal, with an added observation on size inclusivity, of course. Overall, I love the brand. I love its creeper platforms and its faux fur pillbox hats and its mermaid handbags. So much so that I don't mind buying their stuff in a size large and doing my best to stretch it out (something I always recommend because it's actually not that difficult -- not to mention that so much of their stuff is oversized) -- or, conversely, focusing on its shoes and accessories to spice up literally any outfit. So much of the focus on Thanksgiving goes on the food (as it should), and one would hope on the actually giving thanks for something part, but that's no reason to forget that its an optimal time to show off all your fall fashion favs.

All that being said, I (like so many hopeless others) am a last minute shopper. Birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries... you name it. I will buy things on the evening before the event in question, and ship them overnight for an extortionate fee. I will head to the mall with an hour to spare before a big birthday party, and run like a frenzied nutter through the aisles. Planning a Thanksgiving outfit five whole days before Thanksgiving is actually a really memorable occasion for me, and so, I figured I'd try to help some of you, too. With Nasty Gal's assistance, obviously. Because they have loads of, erm, festive items for the turkey day.
