OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: HOCUS POCUS

 

The magical month of October is coming to a close, and that means we get to have some costume fun with our new Outfit of The Week. Since we are all about luxury glam, our Halloween duds are more likely to be found at Bergdorf's than Party City. But, if you can't afford the pricier items, our look can still lend plenty of inspiration for fabulous party attire. Keeping it classic we decided to go with a witchy woman ensemble, think Salem meets Park Avenue. We pulled influence from some of our favorite ladies of Halloween like The Sanderson Sisters and Morticia Addams. Naturally we had to start off our look with the perfect LBD. This Zac Posen strapless gown is made with black stretch-jersey, a structured bodice with raised pleats, gathered empire waist, and a sweetheart neckline. To amp up the spook factor, a floor sweeping cape is a must. Juan Carlos Obando's "Avalon' design is crafted from languid silk-crepe, has fluttering neck ties and is unlined for lightness. The most important part of any good (or bad) witch's wardrobe is her accessories. When it came to footwear we went the creepy route with a spidery pair by Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, a made to order embellished hat (thanks Etsy!), and a creepy crawler clutch by Charlotte Olympia. Of course a witch's main form of transportation is her broom, we found this fabulous creation Ebay, where there is plenty to choose from! For our final touches we hit the beauty department. A pair of fluttery 'Scarlett' lashes by Huda Beauty and a blood hued lipstick polish off our haunting look. Whether you are having a party at home or hitting the town, in this outfit you are sure to cast a spell wherever you go.
