Masquerade For One


Seeing I haven’t experienced a sober Halloween for a while, I may not be the Halloween expert. But I can offer you one Halloween advice: This is the only night of the year where you can be whatever you want without being judged. So show off your inner freak show you munchkin.

Seen here is myself at my own masquerade (it's that exclusive) with the help of from La Vie en Rose. I've worn the lustre dress many times with everything from kimono cardigans to boyfriend blazers. But adding a mask and some lace gloves vola comes a Halloween costume. As for the flapper dress, you can dress up as one of those, or wear it on a regular night with a knitter sweater and cute wedges. No one would know it was a costume. See? The possibilities of integrating costumes to everyday pieces and vice versa is endless! 

So visit La Vie en Rose for some Halloween ideas and have fun being whoever you want to be. I won't judge- unless you powder yourself white and dangle a baby off your balcony.

  2. Love your mask and i love the flapper dress. I'm doing a whole mardi gras masquerade theme myself since I got a pretty mask from New Orleans when I was done there. I still need to pick up a few more things to make the whole look complete.

  25. u look beautiful! and lovely mask! :)

  26. You look so good in that mask! Sounds like you're all set for Halloween. I never thought of La Vie En Rose for Halloween costume ideas, but considering most girls wear something that's little more than lingerie when they go clubbing anyway, it's just as good a place as any to shop for costume stuff lol.

  33. Hi dear!

    How have you been? You look gorgeous as always and awesome photos.

    I'm not sure yet what I'll be dressing up as for Halloween. I might even skip this year.

  36. LOVE that mask! And you're right, Halloween is the only holiday which allows you to dress liberally in public without being arrested! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love the mask! And these costume ideas. I just finished making my feathered mask for my crow costume. It won't be as sexy as your costumes, but my intention is to scare people this year.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great mask! These are such great photos! You look stunning. Yes, Halloween is an excuse to dress up as anything you want and not be called a slut lol. (Not saying that you look like one but you know the girls I'm talking about!)

  41. Your eyes are haunting and beautiful here! Masquerade masks always make me think of romance. Who wouldn't want to feel like Cinderella or the belle of the ball. Too bad we don't have masquerade balls that often.

    Take care,

  46. ok. ur hair looks absolutely stunning!!! LOVE the color, its on fire! and I am flooring for that flapper dress. What a great costume! x

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love Halloween, but my costumes have been lame. One year I was a lumber jack (with a real ax)...another I was a homeless person (minus the smell). I think the latter was inspired by the fact that I went out as a hobo so often as a kid--and sometimes for Halloween too. =)

    I see some of the other commenters used the word stunning. I'm glad to see they got it right. That adjective could be used every day, but then you'd get bored with it.
