Outfit: Wednesday, Break My Heart

Here’s the thing about Halloween: I am simply too lazy to do much about it.  Sure, I like going to parties and eating enough candy to make myself sick for days, but I’m not really one to decorate or host anything myself.  And for a style blogger, well, I’m not much of a costume kinda girl.

For the past few years, I’ve been shopping my closet for Halloween costumes.  Once I was an old timey aviatrix, with a felt cloche, red scarf, and leather boots, and last year I was a French man, pencil mustache and all.  This year is no exception.  I’ve had this dress for a long time and always thought it seemed a little on the funeral side, so my choice to be Wednesday Addams was a no-brainer.  All I had to do was slip my favorite spiky-collared blouse underneath, pull on some knee socks, and braid two little pigtails, and presto!  Easy peasy Halloween costume.

I thought about where to shoot for a long time.  My first choice was to take my pictures in a graveyard, but something about that seemed disrespectful, so I decided instead to shoot in my own apartment building!  It was a bit of a challenge for me since the lighting wasn’t great and there are a lot of tight spaces, but I love the overall feel of these pictures.

So what about youse–are you going all out for Halloween, or are you going a more relaxed route?  And what are you going to be??

  1. Oh my god do I love these photos! You did awesome with the tricky indoor lighting. They’re absolutely perfect for Halloween, and you are the cutest Wednesday Addams I have ever seen. 🙂 I tell myself ever year, that I’m not going to dress up for Halloween. But every year once it gets close to Oct. 31, I go a little crazy. Haha. Fortunately this year, my costume will actually be something I can wear outside of Halloween, too.


  2. I love these photos!! There is a creepy quality to them that is just great! Very well done!
    I think the outfit is rather cute actually ;P And you look so adorable!
    I don’t really do anything for halloween… It’s not as big here, although it is getting bigger and bigger every year.
    Much love,


I'd love to hear from you!
