ASYMETRICAL TARTAN SKIRT
BABY PINK ANGEL WINGS

BLACK PLATFORM BOOTS
I'm back at Essington farm for another spooky escapade for TOPSHOP Halloween!!! I have to admit this is my favourite collaboration of the year, having created content for this campaign for the past two years I'm so excited to be involved for the third year running!! This year I decided to head back to Essington Farm to go to their delightful pumpkin patch and take some spooky photos!
I've decided to go for the "Emo Angel" vibe, because I'm quite sure I had a similar outfit to this back when I was twelve and all I wanted to do was listen to My Chemical Romance. I also didn't have these adorable angel wings, how cute are they? They come in various different colours but I thought pink would suit me the best! Here are the red and black wings if you wanna take a peek!
I wanted to choose items that I could wear again in everyday outfits, so I went for this black off shoulder body which I will no doubt be wearing on a regular basis as I think it looks super flattering on! I also really love this tartan asymmetrical skirt, as I mentioned above, I had a similar outfit to this when I was twelve and this skirt is the main reason for that, the only difference being that this skirt is about ten times more amazing than the skirt I had when I was younger which barely fit me. I can imagine the tartan would be perfect for the rest of autumn and Christmas!
Here are my previous two TOPSHOP Halloween posts if you'd like to check them out!!!

Here I am, walking down an eerie path in the woods, on my way to attend a witches meeting where we'll most probably discuss who we're going to sacrifice next, all to create a potion that will turn us into beautiful immortal beings. Or y'know, whatever.
If I were actually a witch, I would use my powers to banish all gross and creepy men who lurk in the shadows, watching women as they go about their daily life, just as one man did while I was taking these very photos.
There he was, in his car with his drug dealer windows rolled down- that really should have been the first indication that we should leave to find a different shoot location. My Dad had gone to walk the dog and my Mom and myself walked up the path to start taking photos. I actually got changed once we were out of sight, simply because I didn't want the guy to see me get changed in the back of my car, I figured if he saw what I was wearing, he might follow me, an act which was rendered completely null considering the rest of this story.
Anyway, there I was, myself and my Mom, minding our own business, y'know, working, after all, this is my JOB, and soon after we had snapped the first few photos, he got out of his car, walked up the path and shamelessly began to stare.
There we were, just me, my mom, and him. Bit awkward. Bit weird. All sorts of crazy outlandish thoughts start to stream your mind when you're faced with a creepy guy who wont go away, especially when you're just two women stood alone in a wooded area. I immediately jump to the worst case scenario; this guy is about to kill my Mom and kidnap me. I mean, he has drug dealer windows for god sake! Where is his family? Where is his happy dog friend? Y'know, the normal reasons why one would go to the park. Maybe he just likes the great outdoors, maybe I'm just as judgemental as him for thinking these things. Anyway, I of course, like any scared woman does, stuck my finger up at him and told him to fuck off. Despite this, he just continued to stand there and stare. Erm, excuse me, this isn't the safari porn park, this is real life, I'm doing my job, which by the way entails me photographing this years Halloween costume in a wooded area, is that not obvious? Stop staring at me!
Eventually he got bored and thankfully went back to his car, but not before I had to text my dad to chaperone me back to our car because I was too scared to go near him!
Unfortunately this is something I go through almost every single time I shoot blog photos, regardless of what I'm wearing. Theres a difference between being genuinely curious and being ridiculously gross and this man was definitely the latter. Although this post may be written from a fairly humorous standpoint, that's really just me trying to make something kinda scary seem kinda funny, something all women go through and have to put up with on a regular basis. Anyway, I think this is a pretty rad Halloween costume. I've brought out all the velvet in full force and I especially love the skirt, if you can call it a skirt haha! Its a mere £20 from Choies, how amazing is that???
Let me know what you guys intend to wear for Halloween!!!!

Ok so maybe this is just me with green lippy and some bunny ears, but its cute right? A perfect look for halloween! You could pair this makeup with a black velvet dress and be totally set for Halloween. Here are some items you could use to re-create this look, along with the adorable bunny ears!
See the original post for this amazing Pumpkin Patch shoot here!
It's that time of year again where everyones getting excited about Halloween! Whether you're going out for a student Halloween night, your Halloween office party, or even your friends Halloween house party, you're going to need an outfit! Personally, I've never been too into dressing up as a character, I'd rather opt for the Mean Girls approach to Halloween, "In girl world, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." While of course I don't necessarily agree with that statement as everyone is entitled to walk around as scantily clad as they so desire on any given day of the year without judgement, lets face it, wearing a cute bunny outfit at Halloween is a lot of fun! Plus, lets remind ourselves of all the men who turn up to Halloween parties wearing a banana hammock and receive a pat on the back and are considered a total "legend" for doing so.
With this in mind, I have popped together a super cute list of items which I think would be perfect for Halloween! They're all for under £20 so they wont be breaking your bank and theres a selection of items to suit you whether you want to dress as a cute kitty, or if you just want something slightly more conventional-party-attire with a Halloween edge!
