Dance Teal Dawn

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

It's finally Halloween and if you're going out tonight, I'm sure you'll all have a blast dancing and partying the night away :) My favorite part about Halloween isn't finding the best costume or going out to the parties, but quite honestly I love seeing how excited my mom gets about becoming the creepiest candy giver in the whole neighborhood. 

She is the most practical of the practical. Favorite TV show: Dr. Oz. Favorite binge food: salad. Wears orthopedic shoes, ONLY. Refuses to go on dates with my dad because it is "a waste of money." But let me tell you, on Halloween she dresses up as an unrecognizable witch and plays loud spooky music/sound effects on her creaky old stereo. She talks in her best crackly voice and slaps the door with a clawed hand really hard when the kiddies ring the doorbell. She even used to chase my sisters and I around if we tried to talk to her. Now how practical is that? :)

As for my look - just a simple sleek style with fall textures and colors :) Teal was a summer color but is also declared for fall 2013 as well. I almost wore a (light) jacket too but it is just seriously so warm still, especially in the sun. My necklace is from a designer in Israel, which I think is pretty awesome and also these patent heels are my new favorites as they remind of me of Snow White's poisonous shiny red apple. Yum.

Lace Noir

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Black lace is beautiful for fall and winter. It works well during the day with a leather or jean jacket and at night alone. And as you can see, I combined both bold eyes and lips for a more dramatic effect to match the dress :) 

So is everyone ready for Halloween? I already dressed up as flapper for a party I went to this past Saturday, and haven't decided if I'm going out again. I really wanted to be Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen but ran out of time since I think she's best done DIY!

Also don't forget, Tracyeinny's black playsuit giveaway ends in 2 days.

Olive Me Some Leopard

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

This is a great casual fall look :) In fact these boots allow you to get down and dirty without really getting dirty and the comfort of the rest of the outfit makes this perfect for school, busy moms or even picking out a pumpkin (in my case, tossing carved pumpkins that molded in 4 days uck!). 

This olive vest is one of those frivolous pieces without any practical purpose other than to add an extra element to your look. (It's paper thin so don't expect it to keep you warm!) It really is a perfect fall piece though because it incorporates that military style but also feminine glitter and leopard touches. 

Don't forget the Shoemint giveaway which ends in 2 days and keeps your eyes peeled for a lot more giveaways too!! xo

Red, White and... Black

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Normally I wouldn't pair red, white and black together... but I threw this together minutes before running out the door (which hopefully explains why my shorts are so wrinkled) and decided yes. It works (IMO of course). This is actually a pretty easygoing look that would work for most daily activities in decent weather. Speaking of which, we're really lucky it's staying so warm so long. Even though the mornings and evenings temperatures have dropped substantially, I can still prance around in shorts and semi-sheer shirts during the hours of 12 pm and 5 pm :) *Tip - the key to not having your bra really show through a semi-sheer top like this is to wear a bra of the exact same color as your top!* xoxo

Never heard of a LBP? Me either. It stands for Little Black Playsuit of course :) Or call it a romper if you will. I really love how this playsuit has a sort of major peplum thing going but almost looks like a tiny skirt too. It's a classy, cute and fun little piece that can be accessorized in almost any way since it's just black. And as you can see, I went with cream and gold :)

Ok so down to the giveaway! First, congrats to Joanne Cuaycong for winning the Simply Eyeglasses giveaway! You will be contacted soon :) Now, Tracyeinny would love to give away an identical playsuit to one of my followers so please, enter in the rafflecopter below.

Peacocking

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

No I'm not peacocking but I am wearing a really fun peacock printed skirt :) I love how it has so many colors, making it ultra easy to match with red, blue, teal, gold, black, green, etc! It is also for this reason that I decided both dark gold and gunmetal jewelry would match well.

Speaking of which, you can win your own Whiting and Davis Marion bracelet in their Facebook giveaway now until November 5th! Refer your friends as well to have your name entered each time one enters as well! There is no limit :) 3 winners will be chosen at random.

What is amazing about Whiting and Davis, is that they go back as far as 1876 when they were founded... to 1892 when their first chainmail purse was created. They developed a snake motif and became involved in many notable media events such as the 1963 film with Elizabeth Taylor for Cleopatra costume design, to the shoulder mesh inlaid on Michael Jackson's famous red leather jacket in 1983 to the 1999 cover of Rebecca Romjin on Sports Illustrated. The current 18k gold or sterling silver bracelet collection is a 135 year anniversary celebration!
