I was perusing the ModCloth app a few weeks back and was pleasantly surprised to see so many Fall and Halloween pieces. I love everything about Halloween. The pumpkins, costumes, trick or treating with my kids and eating their candy under the premise that I have to “check for razor blades”. Yeah, that’s definitely a ruse in case anyone was wondering.
They were also having a 40% off sale so I took advantage and threw in some pieces to make October a particular festive one.
For reference, I’m 5’10 and all the pieces are XL. Also, Sofia took the pictures so props to her for all the lighting and suggestion on how to pose.
I saw these two pieces and knew I had to buy them. First off, anyone who knows anything about me know I have a love of cats and purple, so this outfit pretty much sums up my life.
Oh My Gosh A Line Dress in Bats – $59.99. The dress is a little shorter than I typically go for. On me it’s about mid-thigh, so I will avoid bending over too much while wearing, however I must say that it’s quite comfy. I wouldn’t say the material is stretchy but the fit it true to size and the skirt is lined.
I paired it with this adorable Cropped Cardigan with Peter Pan Collar ($49). I also consider this cardigan to be true to size and it’s so cute! It also doesn’t have to be strictly for Halloween. I paired it with a black tank and my white jeans for work and got loads of compliments.
Did I mention it had spooked out cats embroidered on the collar? Meow!
I feel like I am channeling Wednesday Adams slightly more extroverted cousin with this look? Anyone else feel it?
My last purchase isn’t necessarily Halloweenie, but I still dig it. It’s fit my main criteria when it comes to fashion. It’s black and it has cute stuff on it. In this case, dinosaurs and a Peter Pan collar. Meet the Doubly Delightful Sleeveless Top in Black Dino’s $44.99.
I love everything about this top. It’s lightweight, whimsical and comfy. You can dress it up with a pair of slacks and a blazer or down with a pair of white or blue jeans. Throw on some red lipstick and you are all set.
I wasn’t actually looking at anything in particular, but isn’t this what the models on catalogs do? Look distractedly at something off camera?
I hope you liked my first fashion show. If so, shoot me a comment below.
Have a great day!
