I have had the most fun putting together these Halloween looks and I’m not going to lie, I’m sad that I’ve done them all now. But, I have loved bringing some fashion posts back to the blog and I have really missed Girl In The Mirror, so I think that I need to do some more soon. The final part of Halloween week has been inspired by my baby. That’s right, I have been inspired to dress up for Halloween by my cat, Thomas. I do think that dressing up as a cat for Halloween is not only fun, but it also incorporates clothes that you don’t need to save just for Halloween. Plus, any excuse to wear cat ears, right?
The Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler has been one of my most used hair tools since I took delivery of it last summer. I adore how you can create the tiniest of tightest corkscrew curls or big loose ringlets using the same wand. For my look today, I used a mixture of tight curls and larger sections, to give real volume underneath with the larger curls on the top so they weren’t as tight. As my hair was freshly washed, I used the Moroccan Oil Texture Spray to give it some grit and hold, and I expect my curls to last a good few days. A bit of hair oil helps separate the curl and give a more defined look and to control the frizz. The Cat Ear head band is a cute little find from New Look, and it’s rose gold and sparkly. Love, love, love!
My cat inspired makeup was slightly easier to do than my Devil makeup from Wednesday. Using Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation over Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer, the base was dewy and glowing. On my eyes, I used the Too Faced Cat Eyes palette, which couldn’t have been any more perfect. This palette contains wet and dry shadows and the pigmentation of the shadows when wet is insane. A simple day time eye was enhanced by placing most of the shadows under the lower lash line, and extending my natural lash line to look more cat like. The Kiss Lash Couture Little Black Dress lashes were used again, and I still can’t get over how gorgeous they look.
When choosing the outfit for this look, I must admit that I feel like I got a bit carried away with being cat-like. I had a vision when browsing the Pretty Little Thing website and I saw so many items that I was though would be perfect, however, I didn’t want to get anything that I could wear again. I think I’ve been quite clever in my choices, as not only do they fit the brief but they will be very wearable. I spotted the Orla Distressed Sweater Dress and knew straight away that it would be ideal. With cat-like claw slashes across the shoulders and the hem, it’s bang on trend and also super cosy. I do love an oversized sweater.
As a self confessed coat addict, I fell in love with the Amaria Black Shaggy Jacket. I’ve been called many names since I’ve worn this, from being furry to being a gorilla, but do you know what? I am warm, cosy and it looks great with so many outfits. Teaming it with my distressed sweater dress, I feel that it is very reminiscent of a cat and even Thomas loves it. If I leave it without hanging it up, he’s all over it.
As the dress is quite short on me, I wanted to pair it with some tights and conserve my modesty. When hunting through my lingerie drawer, I found these suspender-esque tights from Primark. I can’t tell you how long I’ve had them or even if they still do them as the packaging and label was practically vintage. That being said, the tights were fine and I think they look pretty ace on, if I do say so myself. Although you can’t see them to the full potential, I’m wearing my black Fishnet Sock shoes. Fishnets and stilletos? I think we are on to a winner. Unlike having to wear a separate pair of fishnets to get the effect, the fishnets are actually attached to the shoe. Not only does it make them look a bit trendy but the sock of the fishnet makes it feel like I have a bit more support when wearing the shoes. It’s great for me, as I’m still a bit Bambi like on heels at the moment.
I actually couldn’t decide on which outfit of the three that I have done this week is my favourite, but what I do know is that if I get a last minute invitation to a party this weekend, I have three outfits to choose from. Winning at life!
