Hmmmm....should I be the Pagoda Queen for the Ghouls Just Wanna Have fun party?
Is it a haunted slumber party? Please do come and join us,everyone is invited !...and especially for the event I created an exclusive Halloween costume edition of my MOVCFM ! I mean ,seriously,a slumber party just isn't a slumber party without a good fashion read! I had but to step into my magic closet for endless inspiration!
I paired the vintage Anna Mae Wong mask (found here)with a thrifted short red satin cheongsam and a matching brocade take-out purse.
Just in case its a nippy night out for tricks and treats I added a faux tiger-skinned secret spy trench coat.
Or perhaps I should be a blinged out hippified Penelope Tree.
I found this flower child mask here too. This amazingly groovy maxi dress is from my favorite vintage clothing store Ahab Bowen.
Do you see the little cut out 'neath the bikini line( you may click to enlarge any image)? ....and check out the bling ! I do believe this little number came straight from the designer in a be-dazzled state!I added a Courrege style bag and an enameled/jeweled sunflower for my hair.Ah ,yes and I shall go barefoot like any other respectable haute hippie.
I call this look the Prada Flapper,and took inspiration from the 2007 Vogue fall fashion spectacular. The key to this look is smoldering kohl rimmed eyes and deep cranberry lips.The above dress is Etro and the shoes are Chanel.
Almost every piece you see here has been thrifted for under 5 dollars.The black beaded bag,the rabbit fur shrug,the ecru beaded skull cap,and the cut glass necklace,were all gifts. The shoes,which I call my beautiful/ugly shoes (and quite an amazing match for the Chanels)were purchased last fall for 2 bux at an antique mall. If I had an actual grown-up event to attend on Halloween,THIS is what I would wear.
I call this charming ensem,"the witch next door" look.I love this black and brown and orange and ecru combo.The shoes are black granny boots ,the hat is very vintage and thrifted for 3 bux. The tiny brown velvet purse makes me giggle,imagining the crazy anvil type things ,as a witch ,I could pull out of it.The dress is a Young Edwardian from the Sue Wong era,and an e-bay win for under 15.00 .This is what I will wear to my littlest s Halloween party to serve bat shaped sandwiches in.
Of course I could always don my leopard velvet dress (also from Ahab Bowen).
I need only to add Lee Press on Nails to my black elbow length gloves (they would match the magic heart charm on my collar after all).....
...and carry a kitty mask. Meow.
Oh ...ghouls...if you need more fashion rags to read,I have plenty ,just look to your right. Hmmm... attending a Halloween party and publishing a magazine ....now I call that killing two bats with one stone.
