Scary spice

Max Studio fur gilet and tuxedo trousers, ASOS shoes, Topshop top and Lulu Guinness clutch.

So, Halloween.
Any ordinary person might fob it off by coating themselves in Vaseline and pretending to be a slug, but we're fashion people, we don't do slugs (Vaseline is handy as hell though).
Now, I expect you all have your costumes ready planned, but is that enough? I always enjoy taking advantage of October and stating it as my sartorial right to expose my spooky side, cue kinda creepy Lulu Guinness clutch and wolverine vest. Perhaps each individual peice is a subtle statement (except the clutch, come on...it's so Addams family it's not even funny) but together you're paying a subtle homage to Halloween without scaring your fellow party guests.
For anyone wondering, I will be attending Halloween this year as a 50's diner waitress, sewing my own dress so I will absolutely show you how that goes. If I majorly injure myself on the sewing machine, then I can just add 'decapitated' to the front of that costume title...
I also wanted to mention Max Studio! A fabulous shop with a boutique in nothing hill, check out their website for some gorgeous clothes (as if that wolfy vest was a clue to the brilliance)

  2. I love the clutch! It's perfect for October :) Any excuse to dress a little spooky!
    Your costume sounds brilliant - can't wait to see the end result. I am still undecided what to be this year but swinging towards being a raven. x

  15. Oh my gosh, that clutch is too adorable! I want/need it in my life. I don't think I'm going to a Halloween party *sniff* so no costume for me - I'll be planning my outfit for a bonfire night extravaganza though, which is almost as good! xoxo
