Weekend Forecast: Open mouth, insert Manolo? The truth goes down best with a spoonful of sugar on Friday, so sweeten up your message before you just blurt it out. The advice and ideas you have to offer are certainly relevant. But the point is to empower people, not make them feel like losers for doing it “wrong.” Take advantage of Black Friday deals and shop till you drop (preferably in a mall in the next town over, lest you run into your former frienemy and finally tell her how you really felt about her “edgy” sense of style). If you make only one purchase, make it a practical-but-pretty work staple, like a peplum blazer or warm wool trench. Devote Saturday to a treasure hunt for those rare gems you can give your nearest and dearest. Hunt for pop-up shops or outdoor fairs featuring artisanal and handmade items. Vintages stores may also be calling, and that 1950s fringed lamp would look perfect on your best friend’s nightstand…that is, if you don’t end up keeping it for yourself. Other people’s artwork will inspire your own, so spend the rest of Saturday in creative bliss. Invite friends over for a craft-night potluck and create away! On Sunday you’re back in work mode early, courtesy of a Taurus moon hovering in your career house. A little extra prep today will spare you the back-to-the-salt-mines slump tomorrow. Plus you’ll have a heads-up on the competition, allowing you to gain the leading edge before next week is through.
