For this month’s wear it twice collection, I wanted to start with something that has a bit of dark appeal. I found a great bird skull pendant, which is certainly spooky, but also has an elegant side that can carry it through any season.
For the first outfit, I started with a medieval style skirt in red and black. It was tempting to pair it up with a Victorian inspired blouse, but I wanted to keep the textures down to a minimum, and keep the ensemble suitable for everyday. So I added a simple long sleeved top in jet black, but tweaked it a little bit with a pair of black witch boots. To add a little more color and keep things light, I topped everything off with a set of pretty flower hair clips in purple satin.
The second outfit is a little more adventurous. I couldn’t resist looking for a great corset dress, and found one with a tutu skirt in red and black. For color, I added some thigh high boots in purple suede, then finished things off with some Victorian floral earrings and a black marabou fan. Add a mask and it’s a perfect costume for a masquerade party!
If you could make it Halloween every day, what would you wear?
