Halloween for Grown-Ups

Halloween has always been one of my favorite fun holidays. When I was little, I used to plan my costume months in advance, making sure every detail was perfect, every stitch where it should be. My mom and my grandma were my seamstresses/costume masters and together, the three of us would make ghoolish magic.

What can I say? Even as a kiddo, I loved a dramatic costume change : )

Since it's frowned upon for a 26 year old woman to go trick or treating, I've resolved to figure out less juvenile ways of adding little All Hallow's Eve spice to my life this time of year. I love pulling Halloween colors and Gothic-inspired fabrics like lace into my everyday look, as well as sporting smoky eye make-up and slightly darker shades of lip gloss as ways to celebrate the holiday while still looking like an adult.

Planet Blue has some ah-mazing Gothic-inspired pieces that are so chic, you won't be able to handle yourself!

Long Sleeve V-Neck Bell Sleeve Top and Frill Top

Liz Blouse and Corinne Knit Dress

Victorian Lace Long Sleeve Dress and Unworldly Dress

Make-up is another superb way to add Halloween-inspired flair to your everyday look. Though false eyelashes might be a bit much for the office, you could totally sport some on a fun date night with your man. He won't be able to keep his hands off ya...pinky swear : )

1) Make Up For Ever - Glitters in Silver
2) Urban Decay's Urban Lash in Come Hither
3) Clinique's Black Honey Lip Duo
4) Mitzah Panther Eyeshadow by Dior in Jungle Print
5) Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Baptiste
6) Paperself Peacock Eyelashes

So tell me, Blonde Ambitioners. What do you do around Halloween to spice up your look?

Have a happy and sugar-filled, Halloween Eve weekend, chicas!

Be blessed, lovelies-
