Happy Autumnal Equinox!

Happy Autumnal Equinox my dear friends! Or to my friends in the Southern Hemisphere, Happy Vernal Equinox! For those that celebrate Mabon, I wish you glad tidings, reflection and wonderful feasting! 

With the temperature reaching 84 degrees, it wasn't exactly Autumn weather, yet I reached in the closet and pulled out an old work horse. This eShakti dress was one of the best purchases I've made and its made its appearance many times on the blog. (Latest appearance here.) Such a versatile piece that fits me perfectly! I love you black dresses....sigh.

I threw on a Sourpuss Clothing scarf that was from last year's Halloween offerings. I love the vintage Halloween cat print, but the yellowish cream colored background didn't thrill me, yet I decided to take a chance and add it into the accessory mix. It works well with a all black outfit and Derek even complimented me on the way the scarf looked in my hair. *Shrugs* I've been taking alot "risks". LOL!

And of course, I can't forget to talk about my jack-o-lantern brooch by Summer Blue Jewelry., the main inspiration and focus of today's outfit.  I don't see this brooch in her shop (I bought it last year), but her shop is chalked full of amazing Halloween goodies. It has been really hard to self control at this time of the year. So. Very. Hard. 

Anywho, thank you for reading and I hope you are well and happy.

Oh-So Flowy Pants

The current trend in my dressing seems to be me throwing on things that I haven't worn in a very long time and realizing how much they are comfy and wonderful. I also forgot how lovely is it to be wearing wide leg pants.

It was the perfect day to play in the wind while wearing such flowy pants and such a flowy tank. I ran some errands and have been putting a bunch of new items up on my etsy page. It's fun to dress up in vintage clothing, I get to see myself in different styles. Yet, I'll stick to what I have going on now Hehe!

Wearing; tank top (Target), silky wide leg pants (H&M), bone loafer flats (Not Rated), Cult of Isis Necklace (Alchemy Gothic)

Is it weird to look at this photo and think, "Whoa, I have cool tattoos!" Never hurts to look at yourself from different aspects as well. *Wink*

Thank you for reading, until next time!

Ruffles and Frills for Friday

I bought this beautiful ruffled H&R London dress quite a few months ago and have been waiting for the right temperature to wear this piece for the first time. If you're not familiar with H&R London, they are an inexpensive brand that sells mostly 50s-inspired dresses, skirts, etc., but also have some lovely darker pieces like this dress. (I love this dress and this one. *Swoons*)  

I own one other H&R London dress and sell them at work, so I know that their quality is okay and the fit can be a bit odd (sizing runs very small, always measure yourself!), yet I took the plunge and ordered the dress. Much to my surprise the dress fits great and is quite comfortable! There was a button in the middle of the bow (which both bow and button were completely off center, haha!), but I removed the button since it didn't suit my tastes. 

The triple row of ruffles at the bottom of the dress does make the dress a bit heavy, but that doesn't stop it from flowing nicely when I walk. Side note-I had to steam the crap out of this dress, especially the ruffles. UGH!

The Banned Apparel shrug is something we ordered in at work and we only got two of them (weird!), so I snatched one up as I love the lace on the back, at the cuffs and the embroidered patches and crosses on the arms. 

Wearing; ruffled dress (brand: H&R London via eBay seller), skeleton cameo shrug (brand: Banned Apparel via Cats Like Us), spider necklace (gift from Julie Ann), polka dot scarf (Sourpuss Clothing), black flats (Target)

It was fun to get dressed in ruffles and frills for work!!! 

Thank you for reading, until next time!

Harlow Halloween Blouse by Hell Bunny

I'm pretty excited to be able to start showing you a bit of my 'Halloween Hunt' that I got from work. Though I know haul seems to be a popular term to use when it comes to blogging and Youtube, yet I am going to call it a 'hunt' as I'm more stalking Halloween rather than gathering. RAWR! Hahaha!

The Harlow Halloween Blouse was something I snatched up right away as I had been thinking about it since I saw Hell Bunny's catalog and fell in love with the sheer pattern and Peter Pan collar. This style flew out the door at work, which is not surprising as it has jack-o-lanterns, bats, spiders and spider webs (oh my!), along with a 60s vintage vibe that I know some people totally dig without even knowing it. Side tangent-Most often 60s retro vintage gets ignored, as people usually think 1950s when it comes to dressing in retro inspired clothing.

Wearing; Harlow Halloween Blouse (Hell Bunny via Cats Like Us), belt I always wear (old, Target), skirt (Steady Clothing via Cats Like Us), bat heel pin (Black Willow Gallery), bow headband (old, gift from Melanie), striped button earrings (from Cats Like Us) Mary Janes (vintage Dr. Martens via eBay)

Have you been Halloween "hunting" and if so, what have been your favorite find(s)?

Thank you for reading, until next time!
