It's nearly here, the best day of the year! We've been busy decorating the house - tell you what, Poundland has a lot to answer for, their stuff is amazing this year! Brandon is going as Jack Skellington, and I've almost finished his costume..but as usual, I'm struggling with what to go as. I've got a Halloween party the Saturday before, at Spider's Web - as it's in Edinburgh, we have a long journey there and back, and it needs to be super comfortable and also quite airy as it gets really warm in there!
Kate's Clothing currently have some awesome pieces for sale that are perfect for this time of year (or, if you're that way inclined as I am, all year >:D) I think anyone who was growing up interested in gothic clothing in the past ten years or so knew about KC, and lusted after the items on their site! Now they're stocking more than ever, and this time of year just seems rather fitting for some of their stock...here's my top ten favourite products!
They actually sent me a dress to review, which I think has solved all my party problems...
NECCESSARY EVIL are a brand I've known about for a while, but haven't really bought anything more than shorts or a skirt from (even then, it was years ago!) but they've really upped their game in recent years, and are producing some top quality beautiful pieces. I chose this gorgeous mermaid dress, as I think it mixes spooky and classy perfectly.
The full skirt is perfect - floaty enough to move with you when you're dancing around, but the fabric is weighted enough to stop it from sticking up at the back when you sit down. And can we just talk about that pattern? Perfect colour, and awesome creepy mermaids - Ariel doesn't even get a look in here!
The deep neckline was something I was worried about, but the full skirt and capped sleeves balance it perfectly so it doesn't look 'too much'. What I will say is that I felt the sizes run a little bit big, so check the sizing for definite on the website! I bought a large as my chest was too big for the medium, and I didn't want to have a major boob situation on the big night, but as usual it's a bit big for my waist...oh boobs, always in the way...! Thankfully the dress has a wide tie, so I could pull it tight and accentuate my waist while adding a cute bow to the back.
I dressed this down with a long black wig (Winter, c/o Geisha Wigs), a teal cardigan, and my trusty old Docs in these photos, and I'd say it wears well. I always worry when getting big dresses that I'll never get my wear out them, but this is actually quite wearable! However, for the Halloween party, I'll be dressing it up big style...
Wig: Jewel by Geisha Wigs
Heels: Louis Vuitton, charity shop
Can you say 'Evil Mermaid'? :D
