For someone who loves clothes and dressing in general, Halloween is a veritable holiday. I always look forward to it and this year I found my costume in the form of this spandex dress early this summer. I knew I had to have the dress but honestly couldn’t foresee any appropriate occasion. Then…a light bulb: Morticia Addams (a la Anjelica Huston of course). I’d been devising and conniving for months but it didn’t really come together until late last week when I found the perfect suit for Ro’s Gomez. Ro will pretty much dress as whatever I suggest but he cannot be counted on to procure his own costume. You may find it hard to believe but I really don’t mind shopping for him.  It was as if the stars aligned, I was attempting to find a semi-suitable suit for him without him present which is next to impossible. I happened upon a gray Halston pinstripe ensemble at a local thrift store that was listed at $20. I thought it might be close enough to his size but I wasn’t sure and if it happened to be too small or too short, I would be out $20, which I never enjoy, even with a bargain. I got it home and it literally fit better than some of his tailored suits. I was in thrifted nirvana. We had a fabulous time and I had an excuse to look sullen in photos – which of course, I don’t need.

What I Wore: Good Business

what I wore: blouse – vintage, dress/belt – forever21, heels – report signature, earrings – vintage via cheap thrills, sunnies – vintage rayban, tulle tutu – ebay

The purchase of a tulle tutu to wear under skirts/dresses has to be one of my best all-time purchases. It gives volume and also length when a hemline is a little high for the office.

I went into this little consignment store called Trendy Mindy’s a few weeks ago. They happened to have a load of vintage dresses in exactly (if not a little smaller than) my size! This dress has TULLE SLEEVES! Isn’t it divine? This dress was $15.
