halloween part II.

happy halloween!
i took these pictures for lookbook.nu's halloween costume contest, so i figured i might as well post them on my blog too :)

went out in downtown indy last night with some friends and my boyfriend to celebrate our favorite holiday, and i just had to wear the rodarte s/s 2010-inspired costume i wore last saturday again (if you missed it, see pics here).
funniest costume i saw at the bar: guy in just a robe, boxers, shaving cream all over his face, first pumping on the dancefloor with a razor in his hand. LOL!
what were you for halloween?

halloween.


i pulled this costume together one hour before my friend's halloween party last night, with just $2 in paint and a $5 lipstick. the dress is my h&m maxi that i wear all the time, and the belt is just a random rope. it was obviously inspired by rodarte s/s 2010 (and a recent post by lisa from lisaplace), and yes, i did have help with the body art - i chose the designs, and my mom painted (thanks mom!). needless to say, i had a blast being a "post-apocolyptic warrior princess".
costume success :)

here's a funny pic of me and my cooler of diet coke. yo, that's how i roll at parties :D
my boyfriend is in the background as mario, and his best friend was luigi. they were too freaking hilarious together. proof here.

chain gang (handbag giveaway!) - closed




bb dakota blazer; h&m faux leather pants and boots; secondhand blouse via shop the haute pursuit; forever 21 watch; low luv x erin wasson tribal cuff and scarab ring; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; olivia and joy bag.

this is what i wore yesterday. the leaves had changed to my favorite shades of red/orange/brown overnight with the first frost, and i rushed to break out my cool-weather gear. i am an outerwear and shoe lover, so if i had to name one favorite piece in my closet, it would hands down be this tweed boyfriend blazer that i purchased last winter (you can see me wearing it here and here too).

now for the giveaway!


helena from the new contemporary handbag brand olivia and joy gave me two of these really cool chain bags from their upcoming collection (this particular style is out at the end of november) - one of them is mine to keep, and the other is to giveaway to one of you guys!

to enter, all you have to do is leave your name and email address in the comment section (one entry per person), and i'll randomly choose a winner one week from today (tuesday, october 12).
this giveaway is open to ALL readers, U.S. and international.

good luck!
