Halloween Mix – Upside Down

Sorry this mix is dropping a bit late. But I hope this one helps get you through your Monday and carries you into your weekend Halloween plans. If you couldn’t guess by the cover art, it’s Stranger Things influenced. (I won’t even tell you to watch it, because at this point, if you haven’t already seen it, you’re way too late in the game – what are you even doing with your life?) Enjoy this strange synthy mix inspired by late night bike rides, fog in the forest, faceless monsters, and parallel universes.

Outfit : Dark Days with Tobi

On Edge Slit Midi Dress c/o Tobi

More pieces courtesy of Tobi! I’m always afraid of picking bodycon dresses from online stores that I know don’t cater to curvy figures. It’s usually a gamble knowing it won’t look anything like it does on the model once I’m done filling it out. But in the case of this dress, I’m pleasantly surprised at the fit. Hello hourglass curves! I’m getting Morticia Addams at cocktail hour vibes from this one. Just me?

Drop In Oversized Tee c/o Tobi

I am OBSESSED with this oversized tee. The first time I wore it, a woman grabbed me and insisted I trade clothes with her right there on the street, haha. Since then, it never fails to catch a handful of compliments while I’m out. Funny how something so simple can make such a statement. Since the fabric is ultra light and sheer, I dressed up the underside with high waisted black shorts and a strappy lace longline bralette. And of course for optimal witchy vibes, I have to wear my signature hat and moon necklace. ;)

Outfit : Strappy with Tobi

Laced Up High Shift Dress c/o Tobi

Back at it again with another style collaboration with Tobi! I absolutely love all their black dresses with interesting details. An all-black wardrobe can start to feel a bit repetitive, so I look for unique takes on simple pieces – like the eye-catching effect of this deep-plunging lace up front. Shift dresses are not usually my thing since they can look a tad boxy, but this dress shows off the right amount of skin to keep it flattering.

Dusk to Dawn Maxi Dress c/o Tobi

Another strappy piece I had to have! I pretty much lived in long flowy maxi dresses all summer, but this one really made a statement with its super open back and criss-cross straps (my husband had to help lace me into it the first time I wore it, haha). I love the peacock-style crochet detailing on the front and the lightweight gauzy fabric. It even pairs nicely with a leather jacket, so I’ll be taking this style with me into Fall.

20 Lapel Pins for Spooky Babes

Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite darkly beautiful and creepy cute enamel pins for all you spooky babes out there.

Black on Black and Sometimes Olive

Black Solange Tunic Dress c/o Tobi

I was thrilled when Tobi reached out to me collaborate on a few looks. They have a wide selection of great pieces to choose from – even for this all-black-wearing vamp. I had a difficult time picking from all of their beautiful black dresses, but this asymmetrical tunic dress really stood out and I knew it’d pair awesome with my favorite leather jacket. This piece has become a regular in my weekly wardrobe rotation for an effortless yet bold look.

Olive Fully Flared Day Dress c/o Tobi

For my second piece, I picked this simple olive day dress. Obviously, I’m very into the causal dress vibe lately. Real talk – a big reason I stopped doing wardrobe posts was because I fell victim to newlywed weight gain (#happyweight) and felt shitty about myself in almost all my clothing. I’ve learned to pick pieces that work for my curvy yet petite body type, and dresses like this have played a huge role in helping me regain confidence in my daily outfits. I’ve been getting lots of compliments on this really easy look paired with some black jeans and a rad statement necklace.

Never Let Me Go Skater Dress c/o Tobi

My witchy side absolutely loved this bell sleeved skater dress. But my newly acquired booty and boobies were not having it. The dress is super short and super lowcut, so I’d have to conjure up some wardrobe witchcraft (e.g. dress tape and tights) in order to wear it out of the house. But it’s a beautiful piece I’ll definitely be pulling out of the closet for photoshoots in the future. If you’re more of a leggy goddess like the site model, definitely don’t be afraid to rock it with a wide brim hat and some booties.

ps. This outdoor space is our newly decorated patio hangout that I’ll be sharing here on the blog soon!
