Shop assistants are starting to ask me, "What are you going to dress up as this Halloween?"
Well I'm not sure if I'll actually be doing anything, but my repeated and truthful answer is, "Probably myself".
But then I guess when they see this get-up, maybe they think some people are starting early this year.
This is an everyday look for me.
I snaffled some Black Milk Bones seconds leggings that are going for just $30!
They arrived yesterday, the same day this 1960s red, wool cape reached out and slapped me in a thrift store.
I've yearned for a vintage, red cape for about ... well, forever.
As for Halloween, if the ghouls intend to drag me into their depths this weekend, they're going to have to haul me away as I am.
I have to admit that I'm seeing Halloween as an opportunity for some dubious craziness this year, probably because I have kids that want to do the same.
Oh well, I'll either spend the whole weekend making costumes only to fall into a sobbing heap come nightfall, or make rude faces at my neighbours.
Meanwhile, here's what I wore this evening.
Bones leggings; thrifted wool cape; 1930s peach silk top; Forever 21 booties; 1950s ostrich-skin bag; 1950s thrifted, cotton collar.
A few more details:
The cape needs a press, but I just couldn't wait to show you, I was so excited!
Is Halloween just another day for you, or do you really go for it?
