The Carnival Is Over

Riccardo Tisci's Givenchy designs have fascinated me throughout the seasons. His fall 08 was so enchanting with puff sleeves and strappy wedges. Here is a tribute to his vision. Hope everyone is having a fun Halloween night.

It's pretty obvious that Halloween is my favorite time of year.
It marks the start of my week long birthday celebration. I can dress up to my hearts content without too many stares. Who am I kidding, they always stare....

I'm ecstatic about this perfectly vampy bodysuit. I got it in the dead of summer and tucked it away until now. I love all the details on the front.

I'm very much fancying trench coats. Whats better than that? A vintage trench dress! I'm wearing this over a lovely eyelet lace up black dress.

I love this Martin Lamothe trench dress at pixie market.

So tonight that I might see

I thrift so much more than clothes. Here's a peak at my vanity table. I have a huge weakness for somewhat extravagant looking jewelry boxes. I'm moving soon and feel a need to document my room. It's a bit of a feast for the eyes. Enjoy....

Questions in a world of blue

What better excuse to dress up than dinner, dessert & 3 episodes of Vampire Diaries with my sweet.

I got this gorgeous velvet lined Minaudiere some time ago. It's perfect for fall.

Pearl's Dream

I've been collecting pretty silk blouses lately. Light pinks & creams with slight details seem to be my focus. I love pairing them up with black skirts. My Western buckle boots from Pixie market or these amazing Stella McCartney boots look best.

The caterpillar

This taupe striped dress is my current favorite. Too bad it doesn't have a flouncy hem like the Gareth Pugh dress. I love that dress but this will do for now.

Waiting For The Miracle

I've been strangely attracted to crush velvet for fall. So when I found this bodysuit, I freaked! Not only a crushed velvety find but a dark royal blue. A perfectly refreshing take on this obsession. I've been on the look out for sheer skirts as well. I love the length of this one.

I usually find myself questioning who owned these things. Look at this insane purse! It used to have a strap but someone cut it off to make a clutch out of it. I like....
