Halloween Incarnate

I've been obnoxiously dressing up for Halloween all week at work (if you follow us on Instagram you've probably seen already), and this is the ridiculously themed crown jewel of this week's collection. It's part Victorian lady, part ruffly '80s, part costume, part regular outfit, and all Halloween.

I wanted to go for a spooky backdrop, so we headed to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art to get some shots in front of a silver sculpture that looks like a creepy futuristic tree. Unfortunately, the bright sunlight wasn't the most conducive to taking good photos, but we did get one that shows the whole 56 ft. sculpture!

For my ultra-Halloweeny look, I thought this orange ruffled top would be perfect. Especially since I don't wear a ton of orange, it really stands out when I do wear it, and this is the week to do that, folks! Black and white striped pants reminiscent of Beetlejuice or Jack Skellington kicked my orange and black color scheme up a notch.

Cat-ear (I mean they're different than cateye, so I'm going with ear) sunglasses, bejeweled booties, and a giant velvet bow make for elegantly spooky additions to the ensemble. They also ensure there isn't a part of this look that isn't a statement piece.

For more Halloween inspiration, take a look at my Halloween look from last year and Jodi's look from last year. All of these are great examples of how you could dress up for the holiday this weekend or on Monday without being in costume!
