Wear It Twice: Mysterious Maven

The best thing about creating your own jewelry is being able to make things that no one else has. You can wear pieces that are unique to your own style, to match your wardrobe, and to express your creativity. Being able to make your own clothes would add an even greater level of originality to your style - especially if you like to have a hint of Halloween every day of the year.

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?
