Return of the Pumpkin Heads

If you've been around for a while, you know that the Sunday before Halloween is my favorite day of the year  because it's pumpkin day! 

This year I made a vicious cat, a barbaric pirate, and... there's no way I can sell daisies as scary, is there?

Are you carving pumpkins this year? Tweet me pictures!

"Meep Meep"

I wasn't going to post any Halloween tutorials this year, but then a little guy in a furry vest and a taste for chicken came along and changed my mind:

You guessed it:  Freak Show's "Meep the Geek"

I was heartbroken when they killed him off so soon, but he surely left an impression, and since the Meep look is super easy to recreate I figured I could honor him with a Halloween tutorial: 

Freak Show: "Meep"

A pair of faded denim or chino shorts, some white tights or leggings, a worn out flat boot, and you have the basics. The blue fur vest (or a jacket if your Halloween activities take you outside) can be found on Ebay or – if you have time to look around – in thrift stores. The chicken hat is available on Amazon, and Meep's other hats, can be recreated with some cardboard, a couple of feathers and a glue gun.

If you want to go the extra mile and still have some left over Easter candy, you could even take some Peeps (don't worry you can buy them online all year round), and use a syringe to inject them with red frosting to make them bleed when you bite their heads off.  

Happy Halloween!

The Best of Both Worlds

I've never been a pencil skirt kind of girl. Don't get me wrong, I like the look it just always felt a little too grown up dressed up for me. But there is a way to change that: Instead of wearing the skirt with a blouse, pair it with your favorite vintage tee:

pencil me in

Now that's more like it.

There is just something insanely cool about pairing a structured wool skirt with a ratty concert tee, and you can bet that I will be rocking this look a lot this fall.

Ghoulish Trends

It's never too early to show some Halloween spirit. I'm not saying that you should start wearing costumes as soon as the leaves start to turn orange but a few ghoulish accessories won't hurt anyone.  And as always ASOS is the place to find them: 


How amazing is the  Ouija board clutch? That paired with  the those slippers, some skinny jeans and a black chiffon top could even double as a Halloween party outfit for those who don't feel like dressing up.  And the Jack O' Lantern  socks are a must for any horror movie marathon.

Wild Things

Is it just me or is Zara seriously hitting it out of the park  this season? 

Especially when it comes to bags:

Leopard, crocodile, autumn hues....
What's not to love?

Good Morning Good Morning

I don't like to use the word epic for  everyday things like breakfast food, but in this case I will have to make an exception, because:

Beatles Pancakes!

Is there are cooler way to start your day? I don't think so. 

Also, let's add "pancake artist" to the ever growing list of  awesome back-up careers.

If you're not following Essie on Tumblr  you need to change that right now!  

Not only do they post the cutest ways to wear their new shades,  they also like to celebrate the classics. And this month it's wicked:

Did you know that this color has been around for  21 years? 

"Wicked" has been my go-to fall shade for as long as I can remember, last year it got some competition from the navy "After School Boy Blazer" but that didn't last long. There's just something about painting your nails a deep red. It looks super preppy with a navy blazer, incredibly sexy with black skinny jeans,  and so cozy with a cream sweater.  

...No wonder it has been a favorite for so many years, and to celebrate Essie gives you the chance to win "wicked" and 99 other shades. Check out the Giveaway here. 

Are you a fan of "wicked"?
