Not quite the witching hour


Happy Halloween week! I am keen for this week to be about novelty brooches and outfits dedicated to the spooky! Admittedly my head hasn't been much on Halloween this month because I got distracted by Christmas which is only 62 sleeps or something. Oops. Moving on...

I wanted a Halloween look today that nodded to my vintage aesthetic, yet still had a whiff of witchy. I have had this dress a little while and not worn it; I get so worried about wearing delicate lace and rayon pieces for my day to day life, but with Halloween on the horizon this just seemed perfect. I decided to go a little outlandish for my hair, and before anyone asks, yes, this hair style was surprisingly simple, but I plan to get better at doing it so it's really smooth and polished.

I feel like ensemble is the perfect balance between Halloween and vintage glamour for me, and certainly made people double take.  I guess that would be the black roses and big hair... and witchy filters. Sorry, I couldn't resist a little Halloween vibe on these photos. You'll forgive me.

Wearing...
Vintage 1940s dress via eBay, Innovare heels from Myer (several years ago), Daisy Jean Floral black rose double, Jean Jean Vintage 30s celluloid and rhinestone bangle and crystal drop earrings

Perfect vintage take on Halloween and you really are great with your hair! If Halloween isn't the time to go all out with filters, I don't know what is.

What a sweet little dress! And the hair is perfect, it's a tad Blade Runner!
