Forever 21 Mini Hat, Chiffon & Lace Top c/o Forward To All, Forever 21 Belt, Black Skater Skirt c/o Romwe, White Mountain Booties
At first, when I received this top as a surprise from Forward To All, I wasn't quite sure how to style it with some type of film/literature character inspiration. But after watching Sweeney Todd that week, I immediately felt the connection between this top and Mrs. Lovett's Victorian fashion. This double buckle belt was the perfect addition to create a corseted look at the waist, and to keep the look more modern, I went for a short, skater skirt! I wore this outfit today to my friend's birthday/costume party :) Some people commented that it also reminded them of Irene Adler and that works too I guess! :P
For my hair, my sister was kind enough to help me out with this lovely hairstyle! We sectioned off the front sides of my hair on both sides and put the rest in a ponytail. (While doing so, we realized that I wast starting to look like Azula from Avatar so that's who I'm going to be for Halloween now!!) We then curled all my hair in small sections. Next, we put the curled ponytail in a bun (curls help the hair pins hold better), and pinned the front strands to the sides of my head. We left the two strands closest to my face unpinned, to frame my face. For makeup, I went with a smokey eye and burgundy lips. What do you guys think?
And here is a new giveaway with Forward To All! It's for this gold, sequined peplum dress (in size Small) and these spiked earrings. This giveaway is open only to US residents, and will end next Sunday, on October 28th. To enter, follow the instructions below:
