I don’t know why, but I’m SO excited for Halloween this year. Gone are the days when it was casual to draw a cat face on during a regular night out (if you’re friends with me on Facebook or knew me at uni, you’d know this was standard attire for a Friday night out). Nowadays I don’t really get a chance to dress up as often as I’d like, so I’m really up for ridiculous make up and subtle spooky fancy dress for the Halloween occasions I have planned. Due to now being A REAL GROWN UP, I thought I’d go for a bit more of a subdued theme this year as Pikachu is just a bit too obscure when you’re 28, dontchya think?
When I was in H&M this weekend I spotted THIS skeleton dress. I am partial to a good sequinned garment. For £14.99 I did think twice, as you know, it’s not a very versatile garment. But I do have 2 or 3 nights out planned so it will get it’s fair share of wear. It’s a simple slip dress style with a nice ‘solid’ sequin on the front, with a gold skeleton print, and plain jersey material on the back. When I say ‘solid’ sequins I mean, they’ve been applied PROPERLY and not all loose so they will fall off everywhere like a few other sequin clothes I have. I got a size small after trying on both the small and medium sizes. The medium was just way too big on my top half, but this one is a liiiiitttle tight on the bottom, but it’s ok, I can pretend I’m Iggy Azealia for the evening as well as being a skeleton I guess. Teamed with my chunky Primark platform shoes
and glamming my FACE up with the amazing Make Up Revolution vampy make up it’s going to be very simple yet pretty spooktacular. I featured the palette here
if you want a better look at it. The deep green lipstick ‘Serpent’ is from their brand new Atomic range,
and I get the feeling from the other names of the lipsticks in this collection that someone at Make Up Rev HQ is a big Blondie fan. I thought there would be no way I’d ever wear such a dark GREEN lipstick, but when I actually put this on it’s really nice?! It makes my green eyes look a bit greener and compliments my red hair quite nicely. I won’t be wearing it every day, but for only £1 it’s perfect for a Halloween night out!
For some reason the H&M Halloween collection isn’t showing on their website and I can’t find any of their amazing Halloween lines online*, boooooo! But if you go in to store definitely give it a browse. They even have a sheer top with sequin shells on the boobs so you can be a gothy mermaid.

just posted a preview of a Halloween H&M shoot, which you can find HERE.
