It's October and I'm so crazy excited Halloween is almost here!!! This past weekend I enjoyed pumpkin pie, pumpkin coffee and a pumpkin donut. It was Thanksgiving here in Canada so I can totally justify the pumpkin overload. Pumpkin might be my second favorite thing about October. The first, being Halloween of course! With Halloween comes awesome spooky horror prints and no one does it better than Hell Bunny. I hope my readers are not totally getting sick of Hell Bunny posts because I have just a few more for this season. You will only get a break until the Spring/Summer 2014 collection comes out;) This girl can't help herself...LOVE.
Before we get into the killer fashion, I would like to take a moment to thank my husband Graham. He totally set this spooky scene and shot the photos. Best husband ever! Halloween has a special place in both of our hearts. We were married October 31st, 2009. Enough with the lovey, lovey, mushy stuff. I love him with all my guts!
This outfit is totally a tribute to vampires and the macabre. My Vampire cardigan designed by Sarah Cake for Hell Bunny was the perfect piece for this look. I don't think these photos show just how great the details on this cardigan are. There is a beautiful female vamp embroidered on the front. What is a sexy vamp without a coffin? The bottom left of the sweater features a cross carved coffin and fluttering bats. Each sleeve has a single black bat embellishment for an extra eerie touch. I wish I had taken some photos of the sweater closed. If you're interested in seeing it closed for sizing check out my Sugar Skull Cat post. My vampire cardigan is a size 4X.
My Hell Bunny Bat 50s dress comes in sizes XS-4XL. I think it is totally amazing you can get it in such a broad range of sizes. I'm wearing a 4X in this dress. In a perfect world all clothing companies would follow Hell Bunnies lead. The 50s Bat dress is available in three color combos. They are red with black bats, black with white bats and of course black with slime green bats. I fell in love with the green. I don't wear a lot of red because I feel it's too much with my hair. I can't survive without a little my red so you will notice it's always added somewhere to my wardrobe. I almost always style with a red lip.
Peek-A-Boo!! There's my red. I'm also a big fan of petticoats under dresses. I find that Hell Bunny carries some of the nicest. I'm wearing a petticoat in size L-XL in their regular sizing. It wasn't until this most recent collection that Hell Bunny offered petticoats bigger than that. The L-XL is tight on me. I have to wear it higher up on my waist. I've made this size work in the past, but I'm super excited to order one in their plus size. I know it will fit much better. I was not keen on the colors they released for fall. I think I will be happier with the spring summer color choices. If they release more. Fingers crossed.
My Vampire cardigan, Bat 50's dress and petticoat are all from Sweet Echo Plus. They are a Halloween promo currently running for 10% off. Use code "TAKE10" and having fun spooking...I mean shopping!
