Glitter & Grotesque




I am now trying to find a reason for purchasing a sparkly dress. I mean a full-on sparkly dress. Ever since Ashley Spivey (Bachelor) wore a sequin sheath and I realized it wasn't over the top when kept simple, I have been trying to find a reason.
We typically reserve glitter, sparkles, shinies, whatever you want to call it, for little girls and Christmas. I think it's time to glam up Halloween a bit. Have a glittery Halloween party-think black, gold, copper, silver, green, purple and orange. Sprinkle some glitter on something otherwise spooky, like a skeleton, and have a chic All Hallows Eve.
Also, please invite me to your sparkly party so I can indulge in the sparkly dress. Thanks.




Instead of carving pumpkins this year, coat them in glitter. Or purchase a fake pumpkin and use it next year too!




A little wood, wood glue, paint and glitter is all you need for a different version of a glittery pumpkin.




The deer are a cute idea for Christmas but for Halloween, find some spiders or other cheap finds in dollar aisles or dollar stores to dip in glitter and lay around.




Think of how glam you will feel eating off of these!




Plain masks can be turned into vogue-esque masks. This cat mask reminds me of diva version of Holly Golightly's cat mask in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

These shoes are a great shape with a little bit of pizzazz.
