Scream Queen

uv_halloween

Can you feel the spooky season yet?  I don't know if you can tell but I'm all in over here!  The house is decorated (much to my husband's dismay) and all my spooky outfits are out.  I can never have too many Halloween/vintage inspired ensembles and Unique Vintage really brought out their best collection this year.  This pinafore is one of my favorite new pieces and it's already been worn a bunch of times... in August!  Be prepared to see this cutie a bunch this season.

The Miss Muffet Pinafore Dress is made by Hell Bunny and I was really impressed with the quality of the garment.  It's a thick stretch cotton and has spiderweb and bat embroidery throughout.  It has a bib and side pockets, adjustable straps, and a super full and flirty above the knee skirt.  While I'm typically a small in most brands, I'm a solid XS in Hell Bunny.  The fit of the XS is perfect and now I want them to make more fun pinafore dresses, my closet needs them!

I paired the pinafore with the Gracie Top, which is made by Unique Vintage.  This top is everything.  It looks like a classic top but it's soft, stretchy, and has a cute little button keyhole at the cuffs.  I love the black and orange stripe and I'm hoping they make solids in this top in the future.  I'm pretty sure it would be part of my core wardrobe!

You can find this spooky outfit and so much more at Unique Vintage's Halloween Shop.  They have a huge selection clothing and accessories, I seriously want everything!  Have you been shopping for Halloween goodies already?  Let me know in the comments below!

What's Your Favorite?

I know I say it all the time but I can't contain my excitement for the new Erstwilder launch!  They've asked their fans which designs we wanted to see make a return and now the newest installment of Fan Favourites is here!  This collection features fourteen brooches, three pairs of earrings, and three necklaces.  Check out my favorites from the range below:

Brooch- c/o Erstwilder
Top- Unique Vintage
Hair clip- Claire's

I have the original color way of Slippin' Under so I was pretty excited when they offered this new green version.  I love the marbled resin and the chunky glitter in the middle of the jellyfish.  He's just so bright and beautiful!  If you love this brooch design as much as I do, it also comes in earrings and a necklace.  Talk about matchy matchy!

This brooch is so big and so perfect!  I love this newer version, which comes complete with a sparkly anchor.  The newer version is similar in color but still looks totally different, which I love.  It really is the ideal nautical inspired brooch.


erstwilder babette bee brooch

Top- Unique Vintage

I have always wanted a Babette Bee brooch and I was so excited when they brought her back!  Babette is now better than ever, with a cute little resin butt (instead of it being painted on).  She's super cute, sparkly, and ready to give my outfits some added buzz!


erstwilder around the world brooch

Around the World is another design I've wanted for a really long time.  This version is both sparkly and glittery: who could ask for more?  If you love this design, it also comes in matching earrings and a necklace.  I'm more of a brooch gal but I love that there are so many options for these designs!


You can find the entire Fan Favorites collection online HERE.  Make sure to grab what you want while you can, these designs are going to sell out quick!  Which are your favorites?  Let me know in the comments!

Empower Hour

Smak Parlour Empower Hour Dress in Mustard and Black Gingham

I know it's only August but I am all about fall right now!  I'm getting my cooler weather wardrobe ready and slowly sneaking in spooky goodies for what I consider the most wonderful time of the year.  This lovely dress from Smak Parlour in Philadelphia (they have an online store too) is the perfect summer to fall transitional piece.  It's easy to wear and super functional, but will be really easy to layer up for those cooler months.  Read more about the Empower Hour dress below!

Dress- c/o Smak Parlour
Shoes- Chelsea Crew (similar)
Belt- from another dress
Bag- c/o Unique Vintage
Lipstick- c/o Maybelline Superstay Ink Crayon in Stay Exceptional

The Empower Hour dress is made from a thick stretch ponte fabric and has attached cotton sleeves and neckline detail.  I love how this dress is made to look like you've layered a top underneath.  It possesses all the cuteness of layering but with the comfort of just throwing on a dress!  It has bust darts, an a-line skirt with large hidden side pockets, and a back zippered closure.  I ordered up from my usual small to a medium in this dress and I feel like I should have stuck with a small.  Because of the stretchy fabric, the bust and waist has a lot of give.  I decided to throw on a belt and rock it anyway, it was too cute not to!  You can find this dress and many other cute outfits at Smak Parlour right now.  Support their small business and get a great deal on something super fashion forward!

I don't know if you can tell, but I sneakily added in one of my favorite new spooky purses: the Book of Spells bag.  Halloween is right around the corner and I am so ready for it!  Expect lots of spooky posts from now until Halloween, I have a ton of great outfits and companies to share with you.  If you need your Halloween fix right now, make sure to follow me on Instagram.  I'm already sharing creepy goodies there and you'll get a first look at what small businesses I am supporting this year!
