31 Days of Halloween Challenge – Week Two

November 23, 2015

Welcome to the 2nd week of my 31 Days of Halloween challenge! Revisit week one here!

DAY 8

  

I think this has been my favourite outfit so far, the combination of black and white with light purple is simply wonderful! The theme was ghostly with a bit of Jack Skellington for good measure. My dress is from Black Milk, necklace and brooch from Creep Heart, stockings from We Love Colors and bow by Ruby Kawaii.

DAY 9

  

From ghosts to bats! Despite my enduring love of bats, it turns out I don’ have as much bat covered clothing as I thought I did! Luckily I was able to create a bat bow by using a brooch on an old hair bow and there were some little bats on my leggings (hidden under my skirt though, unfortunately) to tie my outfit together. My top was from the kids section of Big W, my skirt and leggings from Black Milk,  necklace and brooch from Creep Heart and a Ruby Kawaii gravestone clip.

DAY 10

  

It might have been my friend Jasmine’s wedding but that didn’t mean I’d forget about my challenge! Luckily I bought a sensible and cute dress for a previous wedding that just so happened to feature lots of little skulls in the pattern! A few skull accessories, including the studs on my shoes which were tiny little silver skulls, and I was both wedding-appropriate AND Halloween themed! My dress was from Dangerfield, stockings from Black Milk and my hair clip was an old one I put a Creep Heart brooch on.

DAY 11



Another Sunday at mum’s prepping for the wedding meant being comfy so I wore my Halloween Villains shirts from Tokyo Disneyland which I got way back in 2009! I actually forgot I had it and possibly hadn’t worn it since I bought it! I also wore my cute bat headband which I bought last Halloween.

DAY 12

  

This theme was thrown together last minute before a nail client but I really dig it. I call it “Zombie Barbie” and will probably wear it again. The drippy Barbie top was from Miss Shop in Myer, Braaains skater skirt from Black Milk, the Barbie/Zombie necklace was from a market years ago and I popped a Creep Heart brooch on a pink hair bow!

DAY 13


How great is this dress? I mean honestly! Lots of kawaii-faced pumpkins on a flattering, comfortable dress is the best! Pumpkin Patch dress and holey leggings were from Black Milk, the bolero is one I’ve had for years, a Creep Heart necklace and Ruby Kawaii hairbow!

DAY 14

  

I went to the launch of Ben and Emma’s Goosebumps exhibition at the Scratch which should have called for a bright, obnoxious outfit to match the colours of their art/photos but instead I randomly opted for a black and skulls theme. D’oh! I wore a Dangerfield dress which I got for Christmas years ago (still a fave!), some misc jewelry and a Ruby Kawaii Monster High hair bow!

31 Days of Halloween Challenge – Week One

October 13, 2015
31DaysofHalloween, Halloween, Things I Like, What I Wore

Last year I gave myself a challenge where I had to dress and/or do something Halloween-related for every day of October. It was a total blast and I was very excited to do it again this year. The fact I’m having a Halloween themed wedding or “Hallowedding” as I like to call it on the last day of October makes it that little extra exciting! I didn’t blog about it last year but I a determined to this time round, so without further ado, here’s the first week of the 31 Days of Halloween challenge:

DAY 1

  

I was going start off subtle as I didn’t want to start off too strongly right from day one but I got too excited, haha. A spider theme, wearing Black Milk leggings and dress, Ruby Kawaii bows and a Creep Heart necklace.

DAY 2

 

It was lucky I dressed up on the 2nd day of the challenge as I ended up scoring free tickets to Fright Nights at Movieworld for that very evening! I did manage to duck home to add my excellent RQ-BL bolero though. Dress and stockings are from Black Milk and another Ruby Kawaii bow.

DAY 3

 

As per my previous post, I did nail art at the Low Road on the Saturday and went for a brains and ghosts theme (I think I was tired when I came up with it). My skirt and stockings are from Black Milk, Boo top is from the kids department of Big W, necklace from Creep Heart and a Ruby Kawaii ghost clip.

DAY 4


Sunday’s are my usual day off, but I often drive to mum’s to do various crafty things with her, right now it’s 100% wedding focused (oh god so little time). This was my first vague-ish theme which was Monster High. The top was from the Best & Less kids department, Miss-a-Ree Guts Creations bat necklace and a Ruby Kawaii bow.

DAY 5


Monday’s are typically nail days for me so I kept it comfy in the jack-o-lantern crop top I got from Urban Outfitters back when we went to the US over an old black dress, with a Creep Heart brooch worn as a necklace and a Ruby Kawaii pumpkin clip.

DAY 6

 

Back to work means getting a bit more carried away again! I wore the first ever Black Milk dress I ever bought with a Creep Heart brooch as a necklace and a Ruby Kawaii bow (definitely sensing a theme emerging). I also did my nails Halloween style! I love them sooo much!

DAY 7

  

This look was a bit of a mixed bag. All I knew was that I wanted to wear my Pumkin Knit leggings and I just thew the rest together in my rage rush to get ready for work. Leggings and dress by Black Milk, necklace from Creep Heart, spider brooch from a friend and my hair bow was specially made for me by mum :)
