At the beginning of the year I was having a tough time. That usually calls for a drastic makeover. So yes, as I previously mentioned, I had my sister dye my hair red for me. Enjoy these photos of me slutting it up as I headed out to my favorite bar. Then check out where to buy your own over the top pieces. Of course the lipstick is Countessa Flourescent from Lime Crime.

Well Halloween has been my favorite holiday from childhood through adulthood. Unfortunately almost 5 years ago October became an emotional land mine for me. My brother died about a week and a half before Halloween. Then last year my 11 year old dog died the week before Halloween. My dog was basically like a son to me.

So even though Halloween has and always will be full of fun activities like wearing costumes (my favorite, as you well know), horror movies, passing out candy and partying, October is now very depressing for me. This year the hurricane also cast a pall over everything.

Prior to Halloween I was able to dress up once, as Minnie Mouse, to attend a party at a local club. You can check out some cute couples’ costumes from that party here. Plus I was able to see the flick Frankenweenie with my man. It was good but also sad because of the aforementioned death of my dog. We also enjoyed some of my old favorites, Hocus Pocus and Once Bitten at various times.

Some things were out. Hayrides were either too expensive or at inopportune times (plus it was raining often, big surprise, rain is so obtrusive in PA). The party that I was hoping that we could both go to in costume ended up being a bust so we didn’t go. Plus though trick or treating wasn’t cancelled, no children showed up due to the Hurricane and cold.

However despite all of that and my having an appointment with a stranger on Halloween morning (you know how terrible that is with my severe social anxiety), I had an amazing Halloween day. I really wanted to cheer myself up and feel sexy for when my man came over. So I wore this. Usually when you see outfit photos I have worn them out of my house or at least with a group of family at my house during a holiday or gathering. However only my man (and now you, xd) have seen this. Yes, it’s similar to my Sandy outfit (link below) but I’d definitely say sexier.

In addition to dressing up in sex kitten mode, we also had more Halloween fun. We watched Casper and I introduced him to Army of Darkness (ah, Bruce Campbell). My man isn’t a big horror movie fan but he totally got into it. Who can resist Bruce Campbell’s one liners? Plus we ate some Halloween candy. Hey, the trick or treaters never turned up, someone’s gotta do it. We also enjoyed the Rob Zombie channel that we created on Pandora. It was truly a lovely, romantic day (as I not so elegantly captured in this tweet).

I had to take these at night so I did need to tinker with the exposure and effects a bit.

If you follow my fashion board on Pinterest then you may know that I was coveting this gorgeous Rachel Zoe Caftan for a while prior to actually buying it. It’s even more awesome in person than I’d expected.

Luxe Rachel Zoe Embroidered V-Neck Caftan-eBay, white satiny barrette-The Dollar Tree, blue necklace-Crystalline Dreams, oversize pink floral ring-Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival, cream slip (no tag)-thrifted, Predictions boots-thrifted

I wore this when I went to watch Wanderlust recently. It’s so funny BTW, check out this post for my review. I’m also wearing it in the video. I think that it’s more flattering in photos than on camera though.


I may be channeling Mr. Burns in this one.

If you plan to get one in the future or other items from Zoe’s line for QVC I recommend checking out the comments for sizing info. This caftan ran very large. Some mentioned sizing down but others said that if you were busty (the commenter was a C, also my size) that you should go with your normal size. According to the chart I needed a medium so I ordered the cream caftan, also gorgeous, but even when I tied it as tight as possible it was still too large for me. I decided to exchange it for a small. Then an eBay seller had it half price in a XS (measurements were listed that sounded like they’d work for me). So I bought that and canceled the original order. The XS fits perfectly. Her line offers these in sizes XXS-1X. You’re definitely going to want to size down. It also comes in purple and teal as well as the black and cream. I still plan on getting the cream in the future.

I really adore this caftan. It’s the first caftan I’ve owned and now I want to collect them. It’s like a dress meets a nightgown. So it’s comfy and pretty. I know it’s immature but I feel like a princess in it. My sister said it reminds her of a geisha. I can see that in the pics.

I paired it with a long cream slip (you can skip it at home if you want but it’s a bit sweaty so I still wear one), my pretty necklace from Crystalline Dreams, a fun barrette, an oversize ring and some boots. Yes, I’ve been wearing my lovely caftan on a semi-regular basis since then. It’s fun out and about or on the couch.

Last week it started snowing one night so I thought the next day would be perfect for some outdoor outfit photos.

Sofia by Sofia Vergara Shawl Collar Wrap Sweater-Kmart, C&C California tank dress-thrifted, Attention scarf-Kmart, Xhilaration leggings-Target, Bongo Women's Honor Cowboy Boot-Kmart, Baby Phat corset style wide elastic belt-Beyond the Rack, floral ring-Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival, cat ring-CTB's Closet

I had just snagged that Sofia Vergara sweater I’d been coveting. Kmart was having a huge sale and there was one left. It was a size smaller than I’d planned on getting but the only difference was it’s a bit more boobaliscious than the next size up. I also included these awesome boots that I scored at Kmart. I have a bunch of thrifted boots that I wear all of the time but I really wanted a new pair (that I didn’t have to worry about the heel popping off of). They are cowboy boots but to me they really seem like a cross between cowboy and motorcycle boots. So that makes them a bit more interesting. I’ve been wearing these often since I bought them. They’re perfect for winter.

I decided to layer my sweater over a cotton tank dress and leggings. To give all of that black a little pop I added a floral scarf. Plus I incorporated a corset style elastic belt for shaping. It came with a bubble coat that I wear often but I don’t really care for wearing belts over coats. To finish the look I added a couple of rings.

Recently, as I’ve mentioned, I bought some pieces from the now defunct Jovovich-Hawk for Target line from eBay. The other pieces were so cute that I had to get the polka dot babydoll dress as well. This particular item was from the Go International re-release earlier this year. It’s so cute and comfy. If you ever end up picking one up on eBay you can size down a size cuz it’s so billowy.

I was trying to find a way to make it look a little more fitted but it was not flattering with any of my belts. Since it was jacket weather on that particular day I was able to just throw my old trusty bomber over it. Apparently the Miley Cyrus Walmart line that it’s from has now completely folded so I am going to be SOL in the future. I have such an attachment to this jacket that I’m feeling a bit like John Cusack at the moment. The same can be said about the boots that I wore with it.

I actually wanted to wear knee high boots that day but when I dug out my two pairs they were super worn out. I was hoping to do a DIY project with them but all of the craft stores and craft sections of stores around here are apparently gone. I added my sweater leggings which kept the slight chill off.

These photos are from the release of the higher end line and I believe that the dress that Milla is wearing is from her original line (and most likely the inspiration for the Target relese).
