t-minus 2 hours till I'm back in my costume and going up to MJQ for the bash of all bashes, and to boogie once again in our spacey attire. Last night we hit up STS9 in Birmingham and ended the night with a slumber party at Kelsey's crib. Hope everyone's Halloween has been splendid thus far, and your evening is a spookalicious affaire!!

Last weekend friends and I went down to Little Five Points for the annual Halloween parade and boy did we get spooked! There was zombies galore, walking the streets and freakin us out!
this cracked me up so hard!
tell me he wasn't looking dead at me?!
Highway to Hell
a tribe called pink//
this is only the tip of the parade iceberg (no pun intended but it was very cold!) anywho, these are my favs, hope they didn't freak you out too much (esp that first one-what a creepster!)
For the day I broke out my thick UO coat, Gap tights, Aldo boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs purse and UO umbrella
While the boys waited on seats at the Vortex, I walked around the vintage shops and Bill Hallman and fell in love with several pieces. Gotta recuperate after buying this purse before investing in any more big $$ fashion items. . . nonetheless we had a lovely day!
Hope everyone's start to Halloween week has been going well!!

casual night, casual look
top//Urban, trousers//Free People, moccasins//Minnatonka
comfiest pants ever made!
wore this on Friday for the Daath show && keg party. bought the crazy red lip stick to give it a try and although it's kinda a pain to keep up (ie, making sure it's not Courtney Love style, and solid enough to look good) i love it! so fun!!

my fashion mind was blown after checking out Mr. Newton and seeing these ladies, I am loving each and every girl's style.
the lady on the right looks so comfy, def my kind of outfit! and I juust noticed her ring-bracelet thing, so cool!
could & would rock every single piece here. the contrasting patter of her bag and skirt have me wanting to mix and match patterns more often. did a little in my last post, i suppose.
fabulousness to the extreme.
their boots are perfection, even covered in dust
(if anyone knows the brand of these, please let me know!)
the oversized watch caught my eye, as well as the sky highs that go great with those tights.
these gals know a thing or two.
who are they?
and can you two please teach me how to get cat eyes so lovely!?
truly blown away by style. makes me realize that with a couple important statement/staple pieces you can build outfits around them and then mix and match with others. you could take the above five outfits and turn them into a 1,000 different looks. lot of black but you get what what I'm saying.
so I'm STILL shopping for the perfect blazer and currently bidding on some lace up vintage boots & crossing fingers (think these are the perfect ones that have been on my list for a while-may even stud them up. . .) but yea, I've got the staple bag and have plenty of winter coats, just need a couple/more/items. thigh high stockings are on my list as well. . what's a staple piece on your list of things to find???
This weekend was quite eventful starting on Friday with a friend's band [Daath] playing at a buddies house after their return from touring in Europe. They rocked out real hard and so did we, until retiring when we started seeing cross-eyed. Saturday we went to the Little Five Points Halloween Parade with a friend from back home and grilled out after. I made my first ever batch of homemade banana pudding-Southern style-MmMMMm. so good & easy! watched football, of course, cooked for the boys and did a little cleaning. today we had a delicious hangover brunch and soaked up the lovely weather. tomorrow it's back to the 8-5er.

End of August, Phoenix was set to play at Variety Playhouse, unfortunately when I discovered this, the show was SOLD OUT. later I was told that the afternoon of the show they had arranged to play a free show at Criminal Records (a record/knick knack store). my buddy at work and I left during our lunch break and hightailed it to Little Five for a personal jam session with some cool ass dudes.
hung around this little character
so sentimental, not sentimental no
the tunes were not as poppy nor loud due to the small setting and troublesome speaker system but, damn, I enjoyed every second! Couldn't even contain myself enough to stand still, and did see a couple other folks bouncing around, though a lot of the folks were chill (it was broad daylight and no booze was involved). . .I bet the show later that night was crunk
some art to my right, very interestinggg
I didn't even attempt to get in for the show later that night-which I originally planned to make a sign and hold it outside the venue-it was enough for me until they come around again
and was so thankful to have seen them!
here's a shot of my most recent jewelry purchase from the East Atlanta Village Strut from the lovely lady behind Hot Pink Poo. It's all made of vintage materials and I'm in love with the wings!
Le Flash was last weekend in the neighborhood and I wish that everyone could have made it out to see the illuminated art. Here's a description from the website that describes the idea better than I:
an ambient evening of glowing performance and experimental vision
this lady in lace was freaky! she held COMPLETELY still and then grabbed my arm as I walked by! Ashleigh was so frazzled she didn't see a nearby piece of art and ran right into it, spooky I tell you!
good side/bad side, hahah.
dress-vintage (bought from KJO at the yard sale held months ago-ultra comfy!), leggings-thrifted, shoes & hat-Urban, purse-Michael Kors
this chick wired herself with LED lights and showed them off in the line to the water closet. Ashliegh and I simultaneously gave a "OOOOOOO!"
cargo dancers in the night
they invited the crowd up and one by one we piled in and boogied our booties off!
couple buildings down from my front door, this could be seen.
this art show was so brilliant, it's an annual event so don't miss it next year!
today I'm visiting Smith's Olde Bar to watch the game, then it's onto Ashliegh's birthday dinner and outing. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!!
