Sugar Skulls

I've only worn this skull-print dress once before.  I chose it for my birthday when I turned 30 last year.  Today it took its proper place in my pre-Halloween wardrobe.
 

Dress, Target; tights, Target; shoes, swapped, earrings, Claire's; tights, Target.
 

This is my first attempt at sort of studio lighting.  I picked up a set of cheap umbrella lights on an Amazon Lightning Deal.  The lights certainly help in this normally dark room.

The Great Pumpkin

Hey.  Long time no see.  Ok, I still don't see you, but you see me!  Creepy.  Like Halloween.  Which inspired this great pumpkin outfit.
 

Peplum top, ebay; pleather skirt, Target; tights, Target; shoes, Younkers; earrings, Claire's; glasses, Costco.
 

There have been a number of changes in my life in the past weeks, including the addition of a new puppy, Widget.  My buddy and frequent photo-bomber, Gadget, passed away unexpectedly.  I'll memorialize him here sometime soon because that's what I do.  In the meantime, welcome Widget.  He is already filling Gadget's role as photo-bomber.
 

I have another Halloween-inspired outfit for tomorrow, and I'm still figuring out my costume for Friday.  I'll be back before you can say "boo."

With a Little Help From My Friends

I get by with a little help from my friends.  Today that help comes in the form of accessories.  Chenille gave me this necklace, and Kristin gave me the earrings.
 

Dress, thrifted; sweater, Victoria's Secret; leggings, Walmart; shoes, Target; earrings, gifted (thanks, Kristin!); necklace, gifted (thanks, Chenille!).
 

I think of this as my beer festival necklace.  I wore it to one, and everyone thought it was made out of pretzels.

Sack of Frilly

Let me start by welcoming my special guest, Wonton.  Gadget photo bombs me pretty frequently, but it is rare that Wonton gives a damn about what I'm doing graces me with her ancient and saintly presence.

Now, the outfit.  This frilly dress was another item in the big sack of clothes I bought at the rummage sale last weekend.
 

Sweater, Younkers; dress, rummage sale; shoes, Target; earrings, Walmart; glasses, Costco.
