October Ramp-up to Halloween

I freakin’ love ANY excuse to dress up! ❤

That’s why Halloween is one of my favorite times of year – cuz you get to do just that.

Since I’m a corporate-type by day, I wanted to do a little something with my outfits that was a gentle nod to Halloween…  A lil’ nod once a week, every week leading up to the big day for the entire month of October.

Here’s what that looked like…

A Nod to Halloween – The Month of October

 

Gentle nod with a striped dress (F21+) and soft trench (F21+); Sparkle kicks (Sketchers) … giving off a Mime, Jailbird or Beetlejuice vibe.

 

 

Trying for this all-black-everything look for complete with my “Handbook for the Recently Deceased ” tee (PublicButter) with this angled pencil skirt (F21+) and Black booties (Winners). Sadly this was photographed without my stripped cropped blazer, to truly give off the Beetlejuice… Beetlejuice …BEETLEJUICE vibe!

Halloween Weekend – Saturday Night

With October 31st falling on workday (boo!) …the weekend before was the weekend of all Halloween’ing!!!

How lucky am I to have artsy friends in my life.  Joel Colbourne and his amazing make-up job transformed me into a scary skeleton!  Check out this Instagram for more of his makeup artistry. ❤

I had picked up this fab Skeleton Dress from Unique Vintage while I was in L.A. last November …ps: very, very delayed blogpost about that trip coming soon 😉

The make-up just brings this cute dress into spook-tacular frock… Worthy of winning Toronto Lindyhop’s “Most Scariest Costume” prize at the 2nd event I was at!!!!

Halloween Day – Office Costume

It took a month of convincing … but finally my office team agreed to dress up as Cowpokes for October 31st!

Since I didn’t get their permission to share the team photo… here’s what **I** looked like for the Cowboy theme:

How I Got The Look:  Boots from Aldo; Jeans & cowboy hat from F21+; Super old belt from Lane Bryant; Plaid shirt from Old Navy; Vintage scarf for my neck ❤

 

 

Halloween Night – The Village (Church St. in The6ix)

I’ve lived in Toronto my entire life and this was my 2nd time ever enjoying the sights and sounds of Church Street  aka The Village” on Halloween Night! (Click here for the 1st)

Somehow I’ve managed to insert myself into a fabulous social circle of shameless,  onsie-wearing friends who were all more than happy to parade around in public with me.

I fell in love with the Giraffe onsie from Kigurumi … thinking it wouldn’t be a popular choice.  I was wrong. :/

 

Found a total of 5 onsied Giraffes in The Village…only managed to photograph these 3 🙂  Photo Credit: Joel Colbourne

Oh, the fun that was had simply walking up and down the street as a zoo of animals!

We were sooooo famous – everyone was asking to take our photos.

WE WERE A TOTAL SPECTACLE! 😀
