Have a Perfectly Bewitching Halloween!!

Since Halloween is tomorrow (AHHHH!!!!) and I've decided to compile a few of my favorite vintage costume ideas!

Last year's costume: Rosie the Riveter!

A Flapper!
Holly Golightly!
Morticia Addams
Samantha from Bewitched
The Bride of Frankenstein
The Wicked Witch of The West
and...last but not least: Cleopatra!

As great as all of those costumes are, this year I'm going to be the Queen of fake fruit headpieces: Carmen Miranda!!

I hope that each and every one of you have a wonderfully bewitching Halloween!!

Fall Fashions....

Now that it's officially cold here in Florida, I can actually think about putting on a sweater without breaking into a sweat!  So, here are some more of my favorite fall collections from!

Carolina Hererra (ready-to-wear) Fall 2011

I love the sequined gloves and the simple makeup!  Tres chic :)

Giambattista Valli Fall 2011

I LOVE this collection!  Very Grecian - it makes me want to be draped in yards of white satin, cinched at the waist with gold leaves.

And finally, my favorite:

Mulberry (ready-to-wear) Fall 2011

Oh!  I love ALL of these so much!

Favorite Collections!!

     After spending several hours a few minutes on looking at the latest Fall 2011, Spring 2012 and Resort 2012 designer collections, I finally narrowed down my favorites to 20 or so (considering there were a couple hundred collections, I consider this a big accomplishment!).  My next few posts will showcase my favorites.  

First up: Valentino Couture, Fall 2011

Very feminine yet very classic at the same time - the headpieces remind me of a Renaissance gorgeous!!

Next: Jonathan Saunders, ready-to-wear, Spring 2012

The silhouettes are very vintage looking, very colorful and very fun- love it!!

And.....Christian Dior Resort 2012

Who says going to the beach can't be a black tie affair?  Christian Dior thinks that it can!  The results?  Perfection!!

Improv everywhere thinks it can too!
