Year after year I have traditionally become more witchy as the weather grows colder and the days get shorter. Especially with Halloween right around the corner! I have never been an October obsessed lady, but this year I am fully committed to this spooky season. For the past couple weeks I have been debating which character to dress up as this year. The list includes: Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, or Lydia from Beetlejuice. If anyone has an opinion on who they would like to see me dress up as this Halloween, please leave me a comment below. 🙂
Right now I have the pleasure of working in the mall. (**SARCASM**HEAVY BREATHING**) Believe me, I am direly searching for a new job because I really dislike working in the mall. Not to mention that November to January will be hectic due to Black Friday and the holidays. The mall is not safe for numerous reasons, but here are a couple: it’s dangerous because I’m a small girl and men are blatantly disgusting, and it’s easy to get robbed/even worse in a dark parking lot. Hopefully I land a job downtown at the local coffee shop or a sushi bar I applied to. 🙂 These establishments are in safe areas, I live downtown, and I know everyone really well, so I will feel so much more comfortable working! I will post the good news here when I find a new job!
The one benefit of working in the mall is that I scored this flared paisley dress for $6.90. The fabric is actually an extremely velvety, soft, suede like material making it perfect for cooler weather. I am not fully sure what it’s made out of, but it feels amazing. Combining my velvet hat, over sized round sunnies, vintage jewelry, and lace up booties with this dress gives the outfit rich, casual, bohemian character. Unfortunately, I lost this beautiful velvet hat at a party last weekend so I have to buy another with this week’s paycheck! It has become an absolute essential to my wardrobe and I can’t live without it. As you all know, hats are my thing! So trust and believe when I tell you that this is the best non-vintage hat I have ever purchased. The wide stiff brim and velvet texture are guaranteed to enhance all of your favorite outfits. I am trying to put direct links to product in my ‘What I am Wearing’ section now, so you can conveniently shop for the exact same items that I am wearing. <3
P.S. While I was walking around with my boyfriend taking photos, we came across this little Children’s Free Library. We have quite a few free libraries placed around our neighborhood downtown. I think that it’s great to provide reading material to everyone and the set up is so adorable!!!
