THE VAUDEVILLIANS: OUR GRAYSCALE HALLOWEEN COSTUME
Trick of Treat Halloween Vintage Pin Up Skirt
Everything is totally vintage for Halloween 2013. I have been busy busy planning and working on my costume. For the first time in many years, I will not be going with a spooky or scary costume. Classic vintage glam is what I’m aiming for. I’m not going to reveal what my costume is , but you will know soon enough. I’m not sure if the skirt pictured above inspired my Halloween costume. There is a good chance that it was a contributing factor. I have plans to go to a costume ball this weekend and will take tons of photos so I can blog about it next week.
I ordered this skirt about a month ago from Rebel Downtown. Janette, the owner of Rebel Downtown, is absolutely amazing. She is very active on Instagram and is always posting new fabulous fabrics. While peeping her IG page, I came across this glorious print. Halloween Pin Up Girls…Heck YES!!!! I love me some girls, so Halloween girls equal boner! To order, I just sent Rebel Downtown an Instagram comment and worked with her to have something made. I love Rebel Downtown because for starters, the customer service is fantastic. Janette is always very accommodating in custom making sizes. Secondly, she never ups the price to have her items made plus size. Third, she gets the work done super fast and shipping is great. I totally respect this girl who started her business to save up money for her wedding. She is the bomb! Give her some love and check out her designs. She specializes in purses and make-up cases.
The top I paired with the skirt came from eShakti. I ordered this item custom sized. I pretty much always order custom when the item is made of poplin. Custom sizing is one of the perks of ordering from eShakti. You can order this item with or without the embroidery. I opted out because as cute as the hearts are, the shirt is a lot more versatile without them. I love the back of this shirt and wish I had taken a photo. Take a peep when you click on the link. Totally adds a touch of sexy.
My legs are covered in We Love Colors. I hate that I had to wear these red leggings again. I really didn’t plan too much ahead or I would have ordered a really bright yellow pair, the color of the moons. The red worked better than the other colors I currently have so I went with it. My shoes are American Eagle. I picked these shoes up probably seven years ago from Payless. I still love them. Classic black patent leather shoes are always in style.
I finished off my Vintage Halloween Pin Up outfit with red lipstick, a blue bow and a Halloween pin up necklace. I designed the necklace with the skirt in mind. It was not very difficult to find a matching image online. In all I totally love this outfit and will wear this skirt all year long. It’s too perfect to just wear for Halloween!!!

ASOS New Look Inspire Ghost Sweater
It’s my favorite time of year and that means being able to find awesome Halloween themed clothing. There`s a fine line between super rad and totally lame-0. While searching ASOS two weeks ago I came across a super spooky sweater. To be honest I went back and forth on this sweater. My first instinct was to love it, but then I questioned if it was too much of a youth style. I showed it to a friend and she said it was very Quacker Factory. I had no idea even what that meant. I looked into Quacker Factory and found their clothing to be embroidered, stuffy, mature styles. This totally helped me see the asos ghost sweater was in fact super awesomely cute!
After wearing this outfit on the weekend to go Halloween costume shopping for my children, I can tell you I am in love. This sweater is super super soft. I hate overly thick scratchy sweaters. This one is incredibly light yet still very warm. I ordered it in a size 24 even know I normally order a 22 from ASOS. I could have probably ordered a 20. This sweater runs very big. It`s all good I can rock an oversized sweater just the same.
I considered wearing this sweater with just a pair of leggings. I think it would work awesome with them. Then, I remembered I have this great black and white checkered skirt also from ASOS. I was crazy excited to finally have the right item to wear with it. The skirt is super long so I had to do the double roll around the waist. Anyone else have to occasionally roll clothing at the waist? I have a couple skirts I have to do this with. I guess I should just hem them cause at 39 I’m not getting any taller. HA!
I finished my outfit off with one of my creations. A white Ouija planchette necklace. This is one of my best selling items at Everyday is like Halloween. If my ghosty was going to come out to play I had to summons him with the right tools. OUIJA BOARD, OUIJA BOARD!
