What to Wear on the 31st October, 2012: Halloween Costume Ideas

As you already know, my favourite day of the year is coming up and I can’t wait. The drama! The campness! the fabulosity! The high gothic aesthetic! So I’ve been thinking and planning and planning and thinking. Some years I have floods of ideas, and other years my imagination is dry as a bone, silent as a grave, in this crucial month (no pun etc).

In case you are having this trouble, here are my top six halloween ideas for this year, feel free to steal them! Unfortunately, it is only one night a year, but here are costumes I’d dearly like to make this year; the white queen from Alice in Wonderland, Frida Kahlo, Nicki Minaj, Harley Quinn from Batman, a beheaded french aristocrat (because I’ve already been a clean Marie: see right), a venetian mask (but your real face, just painted)

Ah well, maybe next year. What will you be 🙂 ?

9 of the Best: Oxblood accessories a/w 2012

I really love this colour, and I know it has been everywhere, but I foresee it wearing well through christmas and into spring. Burgundy, bordeaux, berry … whatever you want to call it, deep, rich, velvety shades of dark red will put the perfect touch on your chilly outfits. Here are the best (affordable) accessories around;
Biba Clutch, Baublebar Earrings, Dune Heels,
Dune Maryjanes, Newlook Necklace, O.co Earrings,
Covergirl Bordeaux Lipstick, Asos Satchel, Baublebar Earrings

Trend Alert: The Fierce Uppercut

I’m so taken by this new haircut,as seen on Alice Dellal, Rihanna, Mel B, Ke$ha, Miley Cyrus, and many others! I really want it, but I think it might have to wait until after I have a succesful job interview. Also it seems to work best on very long or very short hair so I might have to go shorter. In the meantime, I might try to fake it by just slicking back the sides. I’ll let you know.
What do you think? They are pretty damn fierce right? Just don’t make the mistake of calling it ‘lesbian chic’ like Style.com’s Maya Singer, who exposed her stereotyping thoughts when she linked sexuality to ‘baseball caps…and combat boots’.

8 of the Best: Painted Rhinestone

This microtrend took off a little while ago, inspired by Tom Binns Collection, and I’m totally obsessed with it! Hand painted rhinestone or crystal jewelry is self-consciously girly, but a little bit punk as well. It is so great for a pop of colour on these rainy days, and also a great way to work other trends – like neons, pastels, statement necklaces, flowers, rope – into your wardrobe. Here is my lineup;

Asos Ear Cuff, Pure Essentia Necklace (Etsy), ColorblockShop Earrings (Etsy), SophiaDarlingVintage Necklace (Etsy)

LasSmartArts Necklace (Etsy), prettylittlethings85 Earrings (Etsy), JenHoodenpyle Necklace (Etsy), Martsys Earrings (Etsy)

It was a tough choice, but here is what I bought in the end;

ELMELM earrings, Nianiacollection Necklace (both on Etsy)
