Halloween: Black, Orange + Cream


KILLER LOOKS: In the past, I've loved dressing up for Halloween. I've dressed as a witchy Witch, a Gold Rush Saloon Girl, a Jack the Ripper victim, a Geisha, a Bumble Bee, and in the works, a Raven/Black Goddess of War. But this year- no party. So no big Halloween costume. 


Instead, I've been dolling up on a daily basis, a sort of generic Halloween dress: the 90's era black booties I've christened Franken-boots, with exaggerated, Goth-flavored black on black ensembles. Outfits with a "cartoony" edge, I suppose. Not sure what I'm dressed as today, but with black + white elements, and orange accents, you get the gist I'm all hallowed out for the Halloween.

Ain't No Party Like an Undead Party: Me and My Shadow Getting Ready to Step out for Halloween.
#SECONDHANDFIRST: 90% Thrifted. 100% Spooky.
Now Wearing: 
  • wool torque from Amazon
  • black polka dot blouse, thrifted
  • vintage 1960s orange/cream scarf, thrifted
  • black skirt with bric-brac trim, thrifted
  • black/tan striped socks from We Love Colors
  • vintage 90's boots by Nine West, thrifted

Linking to the scary beautiful Sacramento for Bloggers Share-in-Style and the eerily gorgeous Judith aka the Style Crone for Hat Attack. See ya'll there!

Hi kiddo - which Sacramento share-in-style blog are you linked up with?

The Style Crone said...

You're decked delightfully for the season! Polka dots and stripes together always put a smile on my face. Especially with a touch of orange.

Thank you so much Bella, for the Hat Attack mention. See you there!

That is a super cute outfit, Bella!

I had a whole elaborate costume thing planned out----but now I'm just going to slap on a cloak and a viking helmet I bought a few years ago and call it good. Some Halloweens are like that :) In fact, I'll probably share the helmet at Judith's hat attack, ha ha!!

Patti said...

Love this look, esp the great striped tights! Spooky-good. xox

Val Sparkle said...

Yup, it mostly looks like Bella being cool on any day of the week. But I love the orange scarf for a little pumpkin spice.

Sheila said...

I have been having fun wearing my spooky accessories for the month. I am so excited to get my costume back on tomorrow - and it's got a hat for Hat Attack!

Shybiker said...

With these colors, you're certainly in the Halloween spirit. Nice look. Happy Halloween!

Tamera Wolfe said...

Love the outfit-especially the striped tights and the pop of orange in the scarf!

Forest City Fashionista said...

Too adorable! A great outfit with just a bit of Halloween edge to it.
I haven't been to a Halloween party since High School, I just dress up for work on the years that I have a good idea for a costume (which isn't very often, but it worked for this year).
