since i’ve been gone…

3 November 2009

So I figured that since I haven’t been as loyal and on task with blogging I owed you lovely readers and explanation for my rather random appearances here and there. And especially the non-pareils (my new favorite non-English word, if you happened to be curious) who took the time to Twitter/e-mail me with love notes of their concern for my well-being – you darlings deserve a bit more than the ubiquitous “I was quite busy”-type answer.

Shall we start with the Halloween festivities? Let’s.

First things first, however. I will address my [several] costumes, since you non-pareils have been so curious.


Lady Marmalade, for a dear friend’s costume-themed birthday celebration. {What I Wore: black studded corset + black tailored shorts + fishnet + patent pumps + a single leather glove + tophat. On ze Face: smokey black & copper shadow + dark lipstick}

Goth, for a Halloween parade in which the marching band & dance team participated in for the little kiddies of our town! {What I Wore: black fitted turtle neck (short sleeved) top + black tailored shorts + fishnet + patent pumps. On ze Face: black smudged liner & matte black shadow on upper & lower lash line + dark lipstick}

Wrath, (from the Seven Deadly Sins before I get questionable looks), for the Homecoming Dance. {What I Wore: this amazing dress + pumps. On ze Face: Smokey black + cranberry red shadow + dark red lipstick + faux scars (liquid liner with red lipstick dabbed on top)}

Dark-ballerina-gone-zombified, for my school’s Haunted House. Favorite ensemble, to say the least, for a sick performance of a mash-up of ballet to the “Overture” in Phantom of the Opera with MJ’s “Thriller”. {What I Wore: black leotard + metallic green & orange tutu + ballet pink tights + ballet slippers. On ze Face: smudged black liner + black shadow + dark lips.}

I’ve had my fair share of Halloween this year, to say the least.

‘Lo and behold! ‘Tis your lucky day, darlings, for some pictorial goodies!

{Exhibit A: Purely for your entertainment purposes. Fear me!}

{Exhibit 1A: Taken by one of my favorite people, J., whilst on break between shows at the Haunted House. That would be yours truly, in the typical ballet attire, as a pre-zombified/Thriller-fied ballerina. Peanut Gallery: I. Love. That. Lipstick. Favorite red, without a doubt.}

{Exhibit B: I just had to Picnik it. Snapped by another one of my favorite people ever, S., after a night of dancing at the Halloween/costume-themed Homecoming dance. Why, you ask, would I ever post a photo of myself post-party and yucky from dancing the night away? It was just for you lovelies who asked what the American Apparel dress looked like on me; ’tis a large, for your reference – it runs small!}


I’ve spoilt you with one two many photos, haven’t I. I promise – I shall return to regular posting of inspiration, fashion insight/analysis etc. instead of boring you with personal snaps!

    You go ALL out for Halloween, four costumes?? I could barely decide on one haha.
    I went as Kim Kardashian, I got a giant poster of Kim, stuck it on cardboard & cut the face out. I got some good reactions haha.

You rocked that AA dress! By the way, I like everyone else am very understanding of your random posting. I know what it’s like to be in high-school, and try to keep blogging constantly (:

    You looked beautiful as always dear! The simple LBD looks perfect on you, well done! & so glad you’re back too 🙂

    Just, what does non-pareils actually mean?? You certainly cannot use it to describe someone I believe.. sorry :/

      Alize Morand: Thank you!

      My French teacher used it the other day in reference to us [her students] and I asked the same thing – she answered saying that it was just something she thought that was cute. Since “non pareil” means “a person or thing having no equal”/ “a small bit of colored sugar for decorating candy, cake, & cookies”, her reasoning was that sprinkles make everything much happier – as do we [her students]!

      So I’ve decided to adopt that phrase (:

  31. 6 November 2009 1:28 pm

    love these outfits !!!

  32. 6 November 2009 3:38 pm

    Fun photos. Unfortunately, I didn’t dress up for Halloween this year 😦


  33. 6 November 2009 10:54 pm
