Jack O’ Lantern

October 31, 2011

Club Monaco blazer, skirt & scarf, H&M blouse,
bag, ring & booties, vintage belt

This orange and black ensemble is my little homage to Halloween! And to be perfectly honest, I’m actually really proud of myself for not looking as awful as I felt in these pictures. I’d gone out the night before for a Halloween celebration and I was feeling just a liiiiittle rough the next day.


Best thing about this outfit? The blouse cost TEN dollars. Such a steal!

So I ended up being way too lazy to pull together the sushi roll costume…I ended up just getting a box of safety pins for $2 and going as a “pin up” girl! Admittedly not a creative costume but at the end of the day, it did the trick! What did you all go as?

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Monday so far loves!

***Just wanted to add something – to the person who just posted an abusive comment on my blog…what’s wrong with you? Just an FYI: I can see who visits my blog, see how many times they come, and see where you’re from. I can see your IP address, I can see that you’re from Vancouver, and that you spent 25 minutes on my blog and have visited it multiple times.

Your life must be very, very sad and you must not be very happy with yourself. That’s the only reason that I could think of as to why you’d visit someone’s creative platform multiple times only to post a comment intended to hurt them. Fortunately, I’m pretty okay with myself and am not too affected by your comment. However, I think it’s really sad and quite frankly pathetic that you waste your time coming onto my site when you obviously don’t enjoy it. I feel bad for you.

That’s all! Sorry everyone for the annoying add-on, but I think it’s ridiculous that someone would come on here to try to insult me ANONYMOUSLY. Just wanted to address it and let that person know to never visit my blog. Thanks guys 🙂

    Beautiful photos and outfit! I marvel at your ability to still wear miniskirts with bare legs when it's this cold outside, but I guess I'm just a wimp when it comes to cold weather.

    Have a happy Halloween!

    That person who commented is an idiot, every bit of you is absolutely gorgeous. When I was hungover yesterday I didn't even look 1/10th this good (couch and pj day for sure)
    I love the lace skirt with your orange bow top, and the black jacket. So festive and chic!!

    OMG anonymous is SUCH an idiot!!! you're so beautiful and they're so jealous.

    Oh man, there are such idiots in this world. Really, those kind of "DBs" must lead a pathetic life – full of jealousy. But I am happy you won't let a stupid comment get you down!

    Anyway… To make sure this comment is not full of negativety… 😉 I love the outfit you put together. The blouse is such a lucky find – what a price! And I am so in love with that skirt. It's beautiful!

    Alexandra, you look gorgeous! I love the color palette of your outfit. And your costume is too cute! I think I have to steal your idea for next year ; ) Sorry to hear that someone left you a nasty comment. Karma's a bitch though.

  • Reply Cee November 1, 2011 at 1:44 am

    Oh, the joys of the blog world… Like I said in my text, one negative comment and my blog ceased to be a democracy; if someone won't sign their name to it, they don't get to say it 🙂 With that said though, I think it's sadly common. Hopefully it never happens again! Although frankly, with a look like this, I can't imagine how it could. That skirt is to die for- kind of regretting that I didn't think to request it as part of our mini swap! And that orange blouse really was a steal- you make it look like something worth far more than 10$, I must say!
    xox,

    Although not eloquently put, I'd like to just say that perhaps the comment left by not-so-suave-Anonymous may have been intended as a compliment. Maybe. You're so incredibly gorgeous that I can't imagine otherwise. (I've known a few guys who've said the same thing as a compliment.)

    Your legs are one of the features I am most envious of! Being as skinny as I am makes me look like a boy 😛 You have the body of a goddess. 🙂 Hope their comment didn't get you down.

    xoxo

    Flawless as ever, darling! The skirt in particular is lovely on you.

    *P.S. Shocked that you are getting abusive feedback, what is wrong with people!! Just pathetic! Hope it didn't upset you.

    what a spot on outfit! Good on you for that blouse – I saw a similar MxM jacobs one at holts for $180. hehe.

    wow someone was rude to you here? I can't believe that – people seriously are petty, jealous and have no lives. Well I'm sure the negative energy they spewed on you will come back right on them.

    btw, hope you're coming to the vancouver fashion blogger meet up next wed – would love to meet you.

    Aww I wanted to see the sushi costume! You look freakin gorgeous here. Anon is probably a fat, pimply LOSER b/c why would someone who isn't bother leaving such a retarded comment? On the other hand, I've heard that troll commenters mean that you've reached a level of popularity, so maybe it's good!

    OMG! I love the ensemble! reminds of the pumpkin! I love it! 😀 I love the color combination! 😀

  • Reply Marcella November 2, 2011 at 5:35 am

    I've just realised you have the most gorgeous shade of green/hazel eyes… sigh, so envious!

    Couldn't think of a more perfect 'blogger' outfit homage to Halloween, the orange/black combo is new to me and definitely something I have to try after seeing this!

    As for that lowlife… oh, for shame. Bet they are feeling rather unsettled after seeing they're not as anonymous as they thought. Big props to you for tackling them head on.
