Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, first because I love all things mythical and supernatural: to quote Rupert Giles, “Zombies, werewolves, incubi, succubi…everything you’ve ever dreaded was under your bed but told yourself couldn’t be by the light of day…” Yes, I’m a huge Buffy fan.
But more than that, I love candy. And I love love love dressing up. For the same reasons why I loved school dances back in the day, I love Halloween because I get to wear what I normally wouldn’t. It’s that pass to wear whatever you want that really gets me pumped. Last year for my 31 Things for Halloween post I put together a few Halloweenish pieces to show you that anything goes during this spooky season, and that’s what I’m here for again today. I wanted the fun pieces! Tis the season for those pieces that are too odd for the rest of the year or you’re normally too shy to wear. During Halloween you’re less likely to be looked at like a weirdo so forget that conservative shy thinking, because these picks are all super cute and a little off beat.
ASOS LUPO Slippers – I’m definitely behind the smoking slipper trend but the embroidered bat is where it’s at.
Zadig & Voltaire Uma Leather Zip Top Skull Detail Clutch Bag – Last year there were skulls everywhere – this year they’re still hanging around.
ASOS Structured Velvet Skater Dress – Even though velvet can be worn anytime, there’s something super sexy and mysterious about it.
Gipsy Big Spot Tights – Aren’t these great? They’re kinda witchy, kinda retro. I love them.
ASOS Faux Fur Lapel Collar – This reminded me of The Great Gatsby and the pink makes it gaudier.
Rock ‘N’ Rose Exclusive For ASOS Black Beatrice Floral Round The Bun Hair Band – The gothic version of a floral crown with deadly black roses.
