The Chic Assignment, October 2020

Welcome to The Chic Assignment for October, 2020. I have some fun selections for you this month, so let's get started. 

Chic Assignment no. 1 The Phantom of the Opera We are trying something a little different for this month's Chic Assignment and are going to listen to Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera. I have provided a 1988 Tony Award performance from the great Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman that is so riveting and nostalgic. I know during this pandemic shut-down I have missed going to the theatre and I look forward to returning one day. This month we will listen to this piece and will discuss the story behind The Phantom of the Opera.  Have you seen The Phantom of the Opera? Let us know your experience down below. 

Chic Assignment no. 2 Enjoy the art of Gustave Caillebotte
We are going to study French artist, Gustave Caillebotte this month. You can see his most famous paintings for free online. We will study him more in the mid-month check-in. 

And check out the following two books: 


The Luncheon, 1876

Rue De Paris, Temps De Pluie, 1877

The Floor Scrapers, 1875

Chic Assignment no. 3 Focus on your presentable undergarments and sleepwear. 
This month we are going to go through our undergarment drawers again (yes!) and pull out our presentable sleepwear for fall (spring for our Southern Hemisphere friends). I will be doing another presentable sleepwear video for you this month to provide inspiration.

Chic Assignment no. 4 Enjoy cooking a new seasonal dish. 
Honor the season by trying out a new seasonal recipe this month. I have enjoyed baking acorn squash and creamy mushroom chicken, a recipe I will share with you in an upcoming video.

Hi Jennifer! I look forward to this month's assignment. Thank you for encouraging us all to grow our minds and spirits, especially during these times.

I have a book recommendation for you: A Nature Poem for Every Day of the Year (Edited by Jane McMorland Hunter). A beautiful book, filled with beautiful poems. I've been looking through it and gathering poems to share with loved ones on their birthdays. I think you would enjoy it!

Thanks again, and enjoy your weekend!
