Happy Monday everyone!!! It was a beautiful weekend here in Virginia, I hope it was in your neck of the woods also. Today is Halloween! What is your trick or treat tradition? Do you dress up to hand out candy, go trick or treating with some of your children/grandchildren, or just stay at home and watch Hocus Pocus?Joe and I attended a Halloween party at a Country Club where he manages the course. It was a fundraiser for the club and everyone was encouraged to come in costumes. Joe and I went last year at a gangster and a flapper. He said he was NOT dressing up this year. I overheard him talking to someone later in the week about the car he was driving (his was getting cleaned) and the man referred to it as the “pimpmobile.” This was an older model Towncar that was his mothers. I remembered I had a “pimp” looking hat from ages ago upstairs, so I brought it home to him and he agreed to dress up. With him as a pimp, I needed to go as a call girl, however, there was no way I was wearing the type clothing I found when I googled those type outfits. Lol! This is not a good picture, but since I am always the one taking the pictures, I never end up with a good picture of Joe and me.My makeup had rubbed off, but I had on very bright blue eyeshadow, a lot of blush, and the hottest pink lipstick I could find. I tried to get Joe to wear some gold jewelry but he wasn’t having any of that. Haha I think I am much more at home in this outfit. This is an easy to wear dress from Old Navy. It is loose fitting and made in a swing style fashion. It doesn’t show all the lumps and bumps we would like to keep hidden. The pin-tuck detailing gives it some “style” instead of just a plain front. I really liked several of the patterns in this dress and I may have to go back and get another one.
I have on my Destiny necklace by Plunder with the letter “S.” I like gold tone jewelry best with anything that is a burgundy color. It is warm. I am not one who knows about warm tones and cool tones, but this is what I think works. The earrings I have on are called Ashton. I like the length of these earrings, they are long, but not too long. My hairstyle does not always show earrings when I have them on, but this pair shows even when I do not have my hair tucked behind my ear. I’ve changed up my makeup and gone a little darker for fall and winter. Is it too dark, do I need to lighten it a little?The dress strikes me about 3 or 4 inches above my knee. I like this length but some of you might still find that a little short for you. If this length makes you uncomfortable, then put on some tights or leggings with the dress. As it gets a little colder, that is how I plan on wearing the dress. I have on my (c/0) White Mountain knee boots. I wore them last week in one of my outfits from my small wardrobe style challenge.
I was trying to get you a side view of the boots but it is not a great shot. The purse I am carrying is one that I purchased from a vendor here in town. It is a no name purse, but I liked the look and the shape. It is not leather but it is very nice looking, no one would ever be able to tell one way or the other without looking very close. I forgot to tell you about the bracelets I have on. I have on a couple bangle bracelets in gold. The Aisha says, “Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fears,” and the Shasta says, ” Pray.” Check out my Plunder Halloween specials: I am offering treats and no tricks to you.
