  • Fellow Fashionista Nothing Elegant has a fabulous Halloween-y post: click here.
  • Also, Fellow Fashionista Little Miss Dress Up has a really fun contest going on right now, so if you aren’t getting costumed for Halloween (or even if you are!), go here and maybe you can win a fab handbag just for emulating one of our fellow fashionistas.
  • Lastly, you simply must check out this fashion-costume post by Fellow Fashionista Poeta Fit.

Scrumptious Halloween goodies...
Creepy Comestibles!
Sure, a bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups will do the trick, but CC also loves sugar cookies
and Halloween moonpies.
A devilish doormat for the witchy woman. This and previous at

Perhaps you could be a Referee by wearing the Loeffler Randall Epaulet top pictured below? Available at

These are the costumes that CC’s Fellow Fashionistas report they’ll be wearing this year:

Princess Leia
Sexy Schoolgirl

Chiquita Banana
Galadriel from Lord of the Rings

No bones about it, love all the skeletony goodness you found. Much better than candy.

And, I love CC's "carving creations".
Happy Halloween!!!:-)

I don't like skeletons very much... Very out of fashion in my opinion.

Oh, CC, I'm afraid this time I'm not with you. I don't like scary. I don't even ever watch scary movies! I'm more a 'pumpkin girl' :)

Songy said...

I can never resist skull motives. I'd kill to have Wendy's stuff.

Jess said...

Orgh, I don't know about this one. Those first few pictures really creep me out - what with the ribcgae wrapped around the catwalk models head?

I have to admit the wristband is cute:)

I love peices with skeletons so much!
For some reason, they are just so me. They are probably my most favorite things.

Guess who is going to see the GOthic Dark Glamour exhibit tommorrow?
Yes, yours truly.
