I have had so much fun playing dress up.. Where my witches at!!? I cannot wait for Halloween, so I got started a little early and did a practise run through. (And it’s a good job because the first attempt looked more like the tin man on crack rather than the sultry witch that I was going for!!)
I have always been a bit in to witches, secretly. I love the dark side and I very much grew up in the shadows. There’s was always something about witches, their magic spells and potions that have intrigued me. My top witches have to be The Charmed Ones of course, specifically Phoebe and then Page when she came along (I never liked pru!), Sabrina the Teenage Witch and SJP in Hocus Pocus!
We’re having a Halloween party for the first time ever, I have never dressed up for Halloween as an adult, so it’s all very exciting and it felt like a pretty natural decision to chose a witch as my Halloween costume! My Glaswegian babe, Miss Westend Girl and her scottish blogger crew teamed up to put together The Halloween Girl Gang project, and I have been loving all their outfit posts. I wanted in on the fun so I have created my own halloween witches outfit post for you!
This outfit was put together on a budget (and in a bit of a rush after my failure to produce my scheduled post last week!) My gloves and necklace were from Claire’s, I picked up my witches hat and faux candle holder, in Home bargains, whilst I was shopping for decorations for the party. I based the whole outfit around my pleather midi skirt which I already had in my wardrobe from Sainsbury’s and featured a few weeks ago.
I had been on the hunt for a top that made this outfit more witchy than just a normal outfit (aside from the obvious hat) and I couldn’t find a nice lace top anywhere (admittedly I didn’t look that hard!) and I stumbled upon this one in the lingerie section at Tesco (go tesco!) I think it will probably go in the “underwear that doesn’t come out very often” drawer after the party on friday night! The boots are from Duo and I think I will be living in these from now on!
I filmed a video whilst I was getting my make up on, it’s no tutorial but it might give you some insight as to how I achieved this more subtle witchy face, you can see that on the blog tomorrow.
Perhaps you fancy a look that is halloween inspired but isn’t full fancy dress? Why not check out the featured outfit inspo below
