“fashion” at a hallween store

I’m using the term fashion pretty loosely here.   The kid wanted to check out one of those pop up Halloween stores over the weekend so we went to Halloween Spirit.  While he went off to check out zombie masks and pirate stuff I wandered through to drink it alllll in, and made a few unique finds.

1.  Shoes

These aren’t Manolos, but some of the larger Halloween stores have a pretty unique selection of shoes.   If you’re looking for a one of a kind pair (navy boots with gold trim) they may have what you’re looking for.

2.  Jewelry

Because Target doesn’t carry Peg Bundy gauged pearls, the Halloween stores cater to just about every look you could possibly imagine.  From dominatrix to 50’s housewife.

3.  Angry Birds attire

In case anyone has a burning desire to sport their favorite time killing app, just an FYI.

4. Superman Socks with capes

Need I say more?  SUPERMAN KNEESOCKS WITH CAPES…adorable (especially for runners.)   They also had batman kneesocks with capes.

5.  Legwarmers

Yes, it’s part of a sexy monster costume, but if you’ve been looking to complete some sort of updated Flashdancer look I’ve found your legwarmers.   They do look cozy.

6.  Sunglasses

Because your sunglasses aren’t badass enough without a ‘stache.

So there you have it.  A little taste of fashion from the Halloween store.   Of course there’s TONS of awesome Halloween stuff.  I’ll admit this costume made me pause:

Sexy Chucky?  Really?    Made me laugh, and I got totally sucked in by their displays:

Ghost Girl Display (complete with dead flamingo)

Exorcist Display

Happy ridiculously early Halloween!

feet up friday

My friend Katie does this every
Friday on Facebook so I thought of spread the feet up Friday love here.


Kick your feet up and get ready for the weekend.

tights or pantyhose?

I went to a wedding this past Saturday and sported my new favorite little black dress.  It was the perfect cut, had beautiful pearl detailing, made me look skinnier than I actually am but somehow still made me appear to have an ass, all for $50.   I paired it with this adorable gray toned leopard print wrap.  Thank you Macy’s clearance rack.   This is an incredibly attractive dressing room shot:

I have a pair of black platform pumps but couldn’t decide if I should wear black tights

or pantyhose.

I’m a tights girl for the most part but I’ve worn pantyhose in the past for formal events…sorry I’m Irish and pale, bare legs are only for May-August.   I cringe when I hear pantyhose but I think it’s because it involves the word “panty” and I hate for that word.   Anyway, I spent so much time trying to decide between tights and hose, it was embarrassing, so what would you have worn?

the last pair of boots

I’ve been doing some hardcore reorganizing in my closest(s) over the last few weekends.   I have a serious shoe problem.    I’m not exactly sure when I lost control but I have way too many pairs, it needs to stop.   I have three pairs of nude pumps.   Three!   For the love of Gucci, I’m a dj…no one even sees me, I could roll into work in Pumas and a hoodie every day, why am I obsessed with shoes??    I’ve decided I am not allowed to buy any more shoes, indefinitely.   Not a sneaker (I have 3 pairs of those too) not a flat (I have about 10 pairs) or a heel (I can’t even keep track.)

At the beginning of the month I made a little Shoedazzle purchase, obviously not something I needed, but when they arrive this will be my last pair of anything for a long, long time.

I’ll miss you Shoedazzle.   You too Endless.com.   This may be one of the hardest bad habits to quit
