Happy Halloweenie!

Oh Hallow's Eve! The one day a year where you can be anything you like and totally get away with it. I decided to get in the spirit this year at the last minute but couldn't decided what to be. So I took a gander into my closet and tried to get my creative juices flowing. Lets see, I have about 4 dresses which are all black with white collars, multiple pairs of black as night opaque stockings, and some eerie looking vintage Justin boots.  Why my ensemble looks like something straight out of a Addam's closet! And so my Wednesday Addam's costume was born.

Wednesday is the daughter of Gomez and Morticia Addams and a little style icon. With her raven pigtails, pale ghostly skin, and macabre little black dress, this pint size morbid girl is as adorable as she is ghoulish!

Here are some ideas of W.W.W.W? (What Would Wednesday Wear?)

Black Knit Dress with Peter Pan Collar

Maria La Rosa Opaque Ribbed Tights

Kate Spade Mary Janes

Bumble and Bumble Black Hair Powder

Make Up For Ever Microfinish Powder

A grim little children's book for Wednesday's library!
The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy

Antique bottles for spells & potions!

Here is my version of the groovy little ghoul (with T as "the 1%").  I wore my Modern Lovers dress, black opaque tights from Target, and my vintage Justin boots. I added a wig complete with pigtails, a heavy coat of Cover Girl foundation in Ivory, and a little grey eyeshadow for some deadly looking dark undereye circles and I had myself a quick costume!

Happy Halloween kids!!
