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.

Early this year I went through a bad breakup. As many do I needed to make a big change at that time. In February I had missemmamm.com contributor and senior stylist/teacher, Hot Donna, give me a vibrant new red do. It didn’t last long because I always go back to blonde but I did feel super sexy in it.
Since the night life sucks where I live and yeah I needed some support from my little sister I went to Baltimore to visit her. I wore this outfit out to the new hot club Voltage on a snowy night. It’s run by a manager of the now defunct but once awesome Hammerjacks.
I combined this braless dress from EdenFantasys with an old handcuff necklace, a metallic bracelet, my once favorite but now torn to shreds tights and some super cute booties that I had just gotten. I remarked that pairing the dress with the necklace let people know “what I’m about”. My sister interrupted with “shows people that you lack mystery”, which I found pretty amusing.
We caught up with some old friends that night and had a ton of fun.

Last month was the premiere of my father’s TV ad. I wanted to look a bit nice but still casual. I also really wanted to wear some hot ass maroon boots but they have almost no traction and there was a shitload of snow on the ground. So, of course, I stuck with my trusty Kmart cowboy/motorcycle boots, instead.

A couple of weeks ago we had an unusually warm day so when we went out to eat I was able to wear this super cute Converse babydoll dress that I haven’t worn nearly enough. I was feeling happy and silly cuz my man was wearing his new Santa hat so I topped it off with a cowgirl hat that I bought at Kmart in 2011. I added a necklace and shoes and voila, a fun day!
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).
