Well today I am wearing my awesome new Halloween frock. It’s got skulls on it and everything.
❤ Dress c/o Chiara Fashions ❤ Beret – eBay ❤ Shoes c/o Barrats ❤ Leather cuff – No idea! ❤
How I got the Halloween frock is an interesting story of the sort of thing that sometimes happens when you use Social Meeja. Well, ok, maybe interesting is pushing it, but it’s a story anyway.
I bought several super cheap dresses from Chiara Fashions as they had some great novelty prints, The Comic Book print one from this post, plus a few special ones that I’m saving for Christmas (I cannot wait to wear them!). I had no time for an outfit post, but I instagrammed a photo of me in the comic print dress as I was on my way out, Chiara saw my instagram photo and asked if there was anything else I fancied trying, they also invited me to go with them to a Vintage Fair where they were styling some of their clothes, but it was in Leeds and I wasn’t, but anyway, I digress. I had another peek around the site, saw the skull print dress and thought “HALLOWEEN!” so here it is!
I have teamed the Halloween frock with a pair of rather fetching fringed Brogues that Barratts sent me (I know, with the free stuff, but it’s a good job as no one is paying me any actual money, I’m self employed and currently skint. Sob.)
I attempted to look sinister for the close up photo, in the spirit of Halloween, but instead I rather look like I’ve just smelt something really terrible. I hadn’t, I have a rubbish sense of smell anyway, I’m just not very good at face acting apparently. This is why I normally just grin inanely in all my outfit posts, and any photo ever taken of me. If I attempt sultry, moody, sinister or anything else I look like an idiot.
If you would like more evidence, this is me attempting to look like I am screaming and trapped in a cage Halloween styley.
