All Hallows Eve

Happy Halloween, yo!

SAM_1024Look! I’m wearing a mask, a fur collar, and some spotted tights! Because I am a catwoman! Hear me rawr!

Yeah, this is my sad attempt at a costume.

Oh and in case you were wondering, Catwoman is still the worst.

Here’s my sweet Madder as a Cataffe:

Boo! I mean, Oooh! I found this dress at Kenton Antiques the other day:

SAM_1005It’s so not my “style”: I’m not into the whole peasant look and the pattern is kind of wacky, but I had to have it. It’s heavy and I have to bunch up the skirts when I walk up stairs. It also…makes it kind of difficult to get in the car.

I love it.

SAM_1006I surely did wear it with my Camper boots!

Got some new Tretorn boots as my green ones are cracked. My Tretorns are torn. Nice.

Anyway, I would’ve gotten green again, but the black ones were cheaper. :/

We went to the pumpkin patch the other day and it was crazy satisfying to just slosh through the mud.

After I cleaned up the pumpkins I deposited them on the front porch along with six other tiny ones. Look at me being festive!

Man, I love this time of year. And I love this ice cream:

It’s getting hairy

It’s been 6 months since I chopped my hair off and I made a couple of collages to see how much it’s grown. Answer: So much! Yay me! Also, it’s still a little shocking to see how much I cut, how short it was!

6months

sixmonthsI’m still loving fingercoils, but my hair is long enough now to do two strand twists.

Here’s a pic of my twist-out last month:

Let’s see what that looks like picked out a bit:

froHELLO!

Having short hair has been great though, I’m really enjoying it. I wouldn’t say it’s been easier simply because it’s shorter, but wearing it naturally is definitely less stressful. I wore it straight for such a long time. I love not having to worry about proper coverage (still love hats and hoodies, don’t get me wrong), frizz levels, etc. Rain, keep falling on my head!

I was looking though my Stylefile board on Pinterest and I was struck by how similar my outfit was one that I’d pinned ages ago:

I’d KILL for that bag, btw.

The Pixies put out a new EP recently and I’m really loving it, especially this song:

Rain. It falls again. But hooray for tights!! Because shaving my legs is such a bore.

I found this purse at Rerun the other day. I haven’t been in there in ages and I went in on a whim, since I was in the area. I’m so happy I did! I’ve been wanting a black satchel, and this one is in such good condition and was a steal – $12! The leather is so soft and supple. I kind of like buying old purses because they’re already broken in and I don’t have to feel guilty about throwing them onto sticky counters.

Here are some Brahmin bags that I am drooling over:

He’s wearing a thrifted plaid shirt (Deseret Industries) and jeans. I can’t remember if they’re Cherokee or Levi’s. On his feet are his well worn DC sneakers. On his head are gorgeous brown curls.

3. I can’t stop listening to this song:
