As much as I love Halloween, I fell out of love with wearing costumes years ago. Why? Hm, I don't what it is... maybe because costumes are so terribly uncomfortable, too tight, or just plain cumbersome when I'm going to work or trying to get things done.
I hate missing out on the fun festivities of being part of the "show" so whenever invited to a party around this time, I dress up my own way. A wicked ensemble usually falling between modern-day witch or vampire.
I come by it naturally I guess.
So of course, in Tiny Closet style, I utilized my own pieces to put this look (and really any other look I please) together. What looks like a dress is actually this turtle neck and this sleeveless evening dress, cinched with a belt. And I couldn't keep from topping it off with my bestie booties. They go with everything. Everything!
These arrow earrings I found at the farmer's market in The Grove. I looooove them. Plus, an archer vibe is so cool and unsuspecting with this witchy outfit.

I can't seem to abandon my style for even a moment. Even when it's appropriate for the occasion. But even in this monochrome, minimal ensemble I feel the subtle dark, sinister, maybe creepy vibe I was going for. How'd I do?
What about you?? Any costume you're planning to wear this year?
