We don't have to tell you to cut corners these days, but we still feel obligated to help you figure out how, so here: There's a thrift store on the UES that's neither like Resurrection (too expensive) or Beacon's Closet (overrated) - The Arthritis Foundation Thrift Shop (121 East 77th Street). Yes, the name is weird, and yes, it resembles a grandparent's basement more than a shop that houses vintage DVF and Gucci (I also recently left there with a beaded Etro dress, with tags, for less than my Sunday brunch), but it's still where I go when I have a few extra bucks in my wallet and the spirit of adventure (you have to dig). Plus? The store benefits arthritis, which means you can officially write off Chanel on your taxes - ok, not really, but go anyway. --CARSON GRIFFITH

Grandma-Appropriate, Not-Too-Tight Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas That Are Still Cute
Thanksgiving is a notoriously hard holiday to dress for because it requires sitting at a dinner table for hours with relatives who you only see once a year while simultaneously trying to consume unreasonable amounts of food and/or liquor. This presents a unique problem: dressing to impress your distant family while maintaining a level of comfort that is conducive to eating and sitting for long periods of time. While we all know Thanksgiving isn't the time to break out our best Carine Roitfeld-inspired look--too tight for face-stuffing!--finding a fashionable alternative to sweats can be difficult. We've pulled together the most stylish items that are comfy, chic, and won't disturb your proper Grandma. (So don't wear your Balenciaga Darth Vader visor, ok?) Of course our list includes Stella McCartney, the legendary mixer of casual and elegant, our favorite button downs from Madewell, a hat trick of cute shoes, and a Céline t-shirt--because a girl can dream, right? Check out all the Thanksgiving-friendly options in our slideshow!
Armani's Doing 3-D Glasses, Too
Yesterday, we told you about Gucci's $225 3-D glasses. Well, it seems Armani has hopped on this very new bandwagon as well. Today the global fashion label announced it would also be releasing 3-D unisex glasses, set to hit US stores this December. The glasses, which were modeled after the '80s popular navigator style, have a crystal gray plastic front, and shiny black metal temples. Who is going to buy these things? Who knows. But here's some good news: They're being released through A/X Armani Exchange, which means they're only $58. Take that, GG. Let the 3-D glasses war begin.
