Halloween 2012: Last-Minute Costumes

halloween-2012-anna-dello-russo-costume

Halloween is next week, and as always, I won’t be spending money on a costume. Instead, I’ll rifle through my closet to pull together a last-minute outfit. This year, there are four options that I’m considering.

1. Anna Dello Russo

Perhaps it’s not very original to dress up as Anna Dello Russo anymore, but with the recent Anna Dello Russo at H&M collection still in stores, it’s never been easier to dress up as this colorful editor. Stack those bangles, rock that feathered headpiece, grab a stuffed chihuahua toy, and a shower head…and shower your fabulous fashion advice onto everyone you meet. After all, who doesn’t need a fashion shower?

2. Marc Jacobs at the MET Gala

Already lampooned by Seth Meyers, this one is fairly easy to pull together. All you need is a see-through black lace dress with long sleeves, a pair of white boxers, some chunky heels, and a Spongebob tattoo (sticker will suffice). If you can’t find a lace dress, a pink polo dress is a good option too!

What I Wore: Mad for Plaid

black-wax-jeans

Actually, this post should probably be renamed Mad for Joe…because…well, I might have a bit of a Joe Fresh addiction lately. Absolutely in love with my new comfy plaid button-up, and these skinny wax jeans are the bomb (comfy and sexy at the same time)! But the best part of shopping at Joe Fresh - I get new clothes, while le bf doesn’t even notice an occasional shirt on our grocery bill. Everybody wins!

Have you checked out the latest Joe Fresh arrivals? If not, make sure to pay a visit to one of their many stores. Trust me, you won’t be able to leave empty-handed! Happy Friday, lovelies!

What I Wore: Mama’s Got a Brand New Bag

joe-fresh-houndstooth-dress

Last week, Aldo Shoes x Flare Magazine capsule collection designed by Liz Cabral hit the stores, and of course, my shopping ban was broken, with new pieces added to my already busting-at-the-seams wardrobe.

If not for the fact that the largest shoe size made was 39 (when I needed a 40 or at least a 39.5), I would’ve picked up 2 pairs of shoes instead of 1. And though I wasn’t able to stuff my non-Cinderella-like feet into a pair of oxblood shooties, I did end up with an oxblood mock croc/pony hair bag instead. Roomy and sleek, this new structured Aldo x Flare beauty will surely become a staple in my wardrobe (and in my What I Wore posts) this fall.

If you want to get your hands on a pair of Aldo x Flare shoes or this bag, you’ll need to hurry up! This capsule collection is available in very limited quantities at select stores in Canada right now. Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you, and good luck!

Have you heard yet??? Anna Dello Russo is collaborating with my fave fast-fashion retailer H&M! Don’t you just love waking up to good news? Judging from the sneak peek photos - the accessory collection will be full of GOLD, GOLD, and more GOLD! And I honestly love it so much!

“I am excited by this collaboration: this is the first time H&M has involved a fashion director in a special project. This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it. I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find. As a stylist, I know accessorization is essential; it is the personal touch in any outfit. With these pieces, everybody can have fun, and turn an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day”, says Anna Dello Russo.
