October 31st

I was planning on keeping things around here sleepy until after October 31st was over and done with.. I'm sort of a holiday grinch ... not because I don't like them - but, I think my expectations are always too high and unless I plan in advance, the day usually turns into a total bust. And well, I'm lazy... so advance preparation neverrrr happens.

Halloween this year has been no different - I wasn't planning on celebrating in any way shape or form, except for my binge eating of fun sized assorted candy last week ... and having Westley wear a bow tie around town.

But, then I was listening to The Caretaker on repeat and the idea of dressing up and getting out of the house didn't seem so bad. My boyfriend would play False Memory Syndrome and I always referred to it as ghost music. I really love it. It reminds me of empty ballrooms in abandoned mansions and all that kind of spooky stuff. So, it's been perfect for today.

I bought this floor length 30s chiffon dress at the flea market a few months ago and it seemed like tonight would be the best excuse to wear it. Some sort of old 30s Hollywood fancy ghost lady of sorts? I have no ideaaaaa but it's Halloween and I think that means anything goes!

GORGEOUS dress!! Photo, hair, everything...you look like 1940s movie star! Westley looks very handsome too : p I'm not one for Halloween, but it's usually the day i also excuse myself to wear a funky vintage dress that normally wouldn't be in my roster of options for a regular day...

amazing dress! You seem to have so many beautiful vintage pieces.
And may I say that your dog is adorable. Is he a westie? He looks like my dog I had as a child, his names was Howard and he had the personality of an old man but he was amazing, i really miss him. They really have the best personalities!

Michelle said...

I didn't do anything for Halloween this year, either! Your dog is too cute, and that dress is stunning.

Erin said...

for us vintage hoarders (am I allowed to say that?!), I think the absolute best thing about Halloween is getting to wear those gorgeous, stuffed-in-closets-for-eternity pieces that would otherwise remain stuffed in closets. an excuse to wear whatever you want and never feel overdressed!
I love your costume.
