To my dearest:
Thank you so much everyone for your patience during my break this week! I had a loss in my family recently so I was swamped with funeral and family matters. It’s just been a full week with lots of ups and downs and I just really needed some time to myself and my close ones. Thanks so much for holding tight during my absence! I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to my concept photographer and good friend, Christina who helped me guest post! It was definitely an informative food tour for New York’s Chinatown!
Today, I’m back! Just in time for Halloween too! In my previous post earlier this month, I shared the essential make up to the perfect Halloween look. Today, I’m sharing the full look on how to turn a simple fashionable outfit into a witch look! This way, you can be a fashionable witch and turn the look from street style to Halloween costume!
As I was doing the photoshoot for this, I got many stares from little girls walking by me and tugging at their parents, asking them to get my outfit as their costume! I couldn’t help but smile and feel accomplished, because this wasn’t so much of a costume than a street outfit dressed up as a costume! However, it was definitely fun to put together! And of course all the more satisfying when it got the green light as a successful and coveted “costume”.
This so called “Halloween costume” was just put together by pieces I found in my closet. The only thing that really made this street style outfit a costume was merely adding a witch hat I bought for like $10 and my make up! What really stood out from my make up was of course the perfect purple lips. My eye make up is a light purple smokey eye that can easily transition from day to night. I used YSL’s Eye Duo Smoker Eyeshadow in Color 04 Burgundy for it. You can read more about my Halloween make up look here.
Now let’s talk about the outfit! As you can see, my top is a black ruffle top with mesh on the side of my arms. It adds a bit more of a gothic feel for darker Halloween vibes.
To add some color, texture, and dimension to this look – I opt. for a velvet burgundy skirt as the bottom piece. The wide waist belt also played a similar function to the whole outfit. I love the little weaved details! These little things are what makes the outfit fun and non-boring. I’ve actually never been a big fan of wearing dark colors only because I find it dull. However, through time, I’ve learn to appreciate the effort of dressing it up through added texture and dimension.
Accessories is of course the finishing to the whole outfit – the icing on the cake. It’s so so important. For this look, I made the look all the more fun with my Samantha Vega x Sailor Moon bag. Those who know me know I’m a collector of Sailor Moon collectibles, so I’ve had this fun purse in my closet since forever! I just never thought of using it this way! When the whole “witch costume” idea came up. I couldn’t help but wish for a black kitty companion to complete the look! I have a black cat at home, but I can’t possibly get her to participate in my Halloween shenanigans – so this purse did wonders in helping my fulfilling the whole witch theme!
My shoes in this case was also the perfect accessory to the entire outfit. Little fuzzy slippers are all the hype this season, since last seen on Rihanna. It’s a fashion statement item and adds texture and dimension – that’s a given. But as far as the witch theme goes, I see them as adding a little more depth to the witch like character.
How did you like this Fashionable Witch Look for Halloween? Can you see it being styled from day to night? For me, I think this dark outfit is perfectly stylish for the day if you just subtract the witch hat and purple lipstick and switch to a brighter lipstick – like red or magenta. What do you think? Write back and let me know! I hope everyone has a fun Halloween!
For reference, I am 5 feet 2 inches. I typically wear XS/S or 0-4 for apparel and 6.5-7.5 for shoes.
