Ok so yes, I am EXTREMELY late with this post, but I have many reasons why I’m late. Too many to list but one is I’ve been lazy lol. In general I’ve been super lazy with this blog. I’m still trying to figure out what to do with it other than just do clothing posts. I’m thinking of maybe doing book reviews, recipe posts and makeup reviews. But for this blog today, let’s stick to the clothes!
Last year I was bummed that I didn’t really have any Halloween outfits so I made it my mission to get at least 3 or 4 by the time Halloween came around again. A few things I had wanted last year went on sale after Halloween so I was able to snag them for cheap. A couple of other dresses I was able to get for a super cheap rate from a wholesaler back in August. Then, of course, there’s the Halloween brooches!!! So without further ado, here’s my week of Halloween outfits.
My first outfit for Halloween week was this GORGEOUS cat dress from Unique Vintage. It is currently on sale for $83 but only size XS is left. I’m also wearing a MAK cardigan in the colour Rust, shoes from Call It Spring, and some Onyx jewellery from Vivah Jewellery
This dress is very lovely and light weight and looked so gorgeous on. There are some cons though. First off, it does not have pockets. This was really disappointing because I am used to my skirts and dresses having pockets now. It also did not fit true to size. This is a size large, which is my size in everything these days, but it fit like a medium. It was tight in the arms and I wasn’t able to zip it up passed the waist. From my experience now, it seems that anything that is from Unique Vintage’s actual line, runs a full size smaller, so be aware for any future purchases.
Other than the dress, the other main focus here was the Catastrophic Fright brooch from Erstwilder. I think it is sold out almost everywhere but I did find it still available currently at Cherry Velvet.
I almost missed out on this awesome brooch because when the Halloween collection came out, I only had money for 2 brooches. With this one being my third favourite, it was dropped in favour for 2 others. It also sold out almost everywhere really fast so I thought I would never get it at a later date. Crazily enough, when my brooch order came in, this one was in the package instead of another one I wanted! I was upset at first but then I remembered that I had some money in my paypal account from a recent sale and the other one I didn’t get was still available, so I was able to order it and end up with all 3 of my favourites! So I believe me having this brooch was meant to be 🙂 (funnily enough this also happened to me with another brooch earlier in the year too!)
As for makeup and hair, my hair was driving me nuts on one side so I tucked it behind my ear and stuffed some bobby pins in it lol. Turned out nice! As for makeup, Did my usual look of black eyeliner and lippie, nothing special. Here I am wearing Unicorn Blood Liquid Lip by Jeffree Star. It is the ultimate blood red colour and perfect for Halloween! I’ve actually changed up my makeup routine A LOT since I started this blog so I think I’ll be working on an update blog for that..
OK, on to outfit 2! I wore this fantastic dress from Retrolicious (no longer available). I bought it last year on sale a few months after Halloween. It has skeleton kitties, so of course I had to get it. It’s super cute and fits true to size. AND IT HAS POCKETS! I added a black MAK cardigan, which can be found at Modcloth, and this amazing teal nylon head scarf from Doll Me Up (still available!).
I decided, instead of a brooch, I wanted to wear my Clara The Cat Earrings from Erstwilder. They are no longer available in the purple that I have but this link takes you to the red ones, and there’s also new sparkly black ones!
This picture is stupid fuzzy so I apologize. I think I’m wearing Calabasas Liquid Lip by Jeffree Star.
For my third outfit, I wore a skirt that I desperately wanted last Halloween but couldn’t afford the price tag. I found it for half price a few months later and snagged it up! It’s the Unique Vintage Haunted Mansion Skirt and of course it’s no longer available. I’m also wearing a MAK cardigan and a basic black top from Modcloth. The belt was purchased from an online facebook store.
The amazing brooch I wore is actually one of the first Erstwilder brooches I ever got! I got this amazing Bat Cat brooch last Christmas. The one in the link is the new version…unsure if it’s still available anywhere. It’s the cutest brooch and it’s the one that started my Brooch obsession.
Makeup again was pretty basic. Wearing Masochist Liquid Lip by Jeffree Star.
Only two outfits left to go! I’m pretty sure this ended up being my favourite Halloween outfit out of them all. This gorgeous pumpkin dress, again, is from Unique Vintage and it’s currently on sale for $79 and sizes XS-XL are all available! Again it’s another one without pockets but honestly, I looked so good in it that it wasn’t even that big a deal lol. It was a little tight and if it wasn’t stretchy material I definitely wouldn’t have been able to fit into it, but because it has so much stretch, the large did fit. Though if you want to be extra comfy then I suggest sizing up.
The brooch is a gorgeous Ghost with the most lovely red resin. It’s the Ghostly Gary Brooch from Erstwilder and it is still available! I love it so much and I can’t wait to wear it again.
My hair was doing all sorts of amazingness this day and my brows were on point lol. Wearing Unicorn Blood on the lips again.
And finally the FINAL Halloween outfit of the week comes care of Hell Bunny. This gorgeous Salem 50’s dress is still available on the Hell Bunny site in sizes XS-4XL!!! But if you are a size XS or small, Modcloth has this dress on sale right now for $26.97!!! Considering it’s regularly $90, that’s an amazing deal. I was lucky to get this dress for half off the original price so I couldn’t say no.
The things that stand out the most about this dress are the polka-dot peter pan collar and the peek-a-boo cut out at the chest. Gives it a little sexiness while still remaining work friendly. It has deep pockets and there are so many different Halloween characters on this print! Cats, moons, pumpkins, ghosts, stars, candles, bats, webs…it’s the perfect Halloween dress. I also wore a dark purple Mak sweater and my Catastrophic Fright brooch again.
I can’t tell if I’m wearing Calabasas again but I think I am lol.
Ok so this WAS the last Halloween outfit but remember I mentioned how I got the cat brooch in error in an order and I had to reorder the other brooch I had originally wanted more? Well I got that brooch about a week after Halloween and it’s so amazing there was no way I wasn’t going to wear it. For me, the Not So Wicked brooch from Erstwilder is the BEST of all the Halloween brooches. It is just SO GORGEOUS! The resins are amazing and I adore the colours.
This picture seriously doesn’t do the brooch justice. It’s so much nicer in person.
Ok so I’m finally done! If you think this post was huge, wait till you see the Christmas one!! I may have to split that into a few blogs lol
