Styled by Helen: Halloween




For Halloween I wore this customised dress as part of my Day of the Dead costume. After all the work I put into it, and the fact this dress is sooo comfy, I couldn't just wear it once. So here I am styling it up post-October 31st. I went for a monochrome look, adding a cosy jumper to keep the autumn chill out. I kept the skulls on my dress company with a skull print scarf I've had forever and a day.

Scarf | Bought so long ago I can't remember
Jumper | H&M
Dress | George at Asda, customised by me
Boots | H&M
Necklace | Borrowed from Kim
Ring | Made by me

I am definitely loving the good old black and white combo for this winter. After seeking out bright colours during most of the summer I am falling back into my monochrome habits. There's just something so striking about the combination. Plus it's super easy to put together which is a huge bonus when I'm getting dressed in the dark mornings while still half asleep.

Styled by Kimberley: Halloween



Like Helen, I prefer re-wearable outfits to costume shop bought ones. I am loving my Black Swan skirt from Topshop and it's something I can dress up or down.

For a casual day look I have teamed it with mannish boots and my gym tee. Just kidding, I don't have a gym tee. Until very recently I was "between gyms" (... and had been for about a year...) It's my sitting-on-my-sofa-eating-cake tee.
So it gets a lot of use.



Top | Topshop
Skirt |Topshop
Tights | Primark
Boots | Marks and Spencers
Rings | H&M
Necklace | Dorothy Perkins
Nails | Revlon Vixen

I look forward to wearing it with a chunky or fluffy knit and next year with a biker jacket and heels so this costume has plenty of wear in it yet. Have you got the same out of yours?

Halloween Nails

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween?! I celebrated with face paints and a trip to the cinema to see The Wicker Man. One aspect of Halloween that I got a bit too excited by was having some spooky nails. In fact for the whole of October my finger tips were rather creeptastic. Check out my selection...
