And no I am not just talking about one of my favorite Halloween movies. (Although, you give me a good glass of wine, a fire and Hocus Pocus and my night is set! Hell any night with wine is a good night for me!)
Anyways, I can’t believe how quickly Halloween snuck up on me this year. I feel as though it was just last year that I was slugging back copious amounts of homemade apple pie sangria, dressed as a mermaid, at my parents Halloween party. Good times…from what I remember.
This year I was only slightly prepared…and not in the sense that you probably think.
So for the past couple of weeks, without meaning too, I have been rocking the unintentional Halloween costume. The sad thing though is that 1. I really wasn’t trying to dress in “drag” and 2. I really thought I looked good….and than I go to school and the kids of course have judgement written all over their faces.
First came Inspector Gadget.
Long story short I have a long trench coat that I bought a long time ago, (clearly I don’t wear it a lot/ am never going to wear it again in the faces of children) and decided to throw on one day. I paired it with my Burberry inspired scarf, ($3.99 Savers) some black leggings and my black knee-high boots. Apparently all that I was missing was a hat…..I mean you get the picture.
School came of course with pure judgement. Can’t a girl be a detective for a day?
I guess not and you would think that after all that judgement, I wouldn’t dress like that for a long time right?
Wrong. Apparently I like the judgement and the humiliation because the next week came the Pirate.
You see I had just bought a brand new black and white stripped shirt ($7.99 Savers) that I was so excited to wear….mostly because it pushed my A cups to a B… but still. (It’s the little things, literally, that count)
So as I said I was so excited to wear my new shirt. 6 am rolls around, ok maybe 615 and I may have been running a tad late for work. I guess you could say I was a bit rushed in my wardrobe deciding process. (That’s the excuse I will use for this upcoming look.)
Anyway I put on my new shirt and already felt flawless….I’m talking almost Beyonce Flawless……
….and then came the maroon skirt. (I totally should have stopped myself right than and there, but don’t worry it keeps getting better and better.)
Maroon maiden skirt then followed by a big black belt, black tights, and black knee high boots with a small heel. (Captain Hook is that you?)
And yet, I still found nothing wrong with my look. You would think that there was no mirror in my house, or that this was all just a joke and that I was going to change but Oh No…I looked in the mirror and even did a small hair flip and a strut…. No thought of pirate even entered my head.
School came again and yes the judgement came with it but today I was Beyonce so I didn’t care…
…that is until I got to work in the office. My co workers said to me; “Loren I love your Halloween Spirit. You pulled off a great pirate…..”
Needless to say I spent the rest of the afternoon fielding off pirate jokes. I told my co workers that I never again will wear this outfit, my Beyonce fabulous outfit, ever again! (sigh)
Apparently the mirror in my apartment had lied to me because my true pirate self glanced back at me from the mirror at work. Arrh Matey!
How much did the pirate pay for his piercings?
A: A buck-an-ear. Lol!
Anyways if you are in need of quick Halloween outfits for a party, or work, considering that Halloween is tomorrow, you have two right here. Quick, easy and if you are like me, you might even have some or most of the items already lying around in your closet!
Keep it Grand and Secondhand!
P.s I guess the judgement and the humiliation started to get to me because for the past week I have actually dressed like a normal 25 year old fashionista. HUGE accomplishments I know!
