This Halloween season I've picked a few stunning pieces that capture my daily and creepy style perfectly so settle in and prepare to get stylish and spooky.
Ricci Dress - $96.00
Yes I own way too many Wednesday Adams inspired dresses but I can't help it. They fit my shape perfectly and really appeal to me with those fine details.
The Ricci Dress, appropriately named after Christina Ricci herself is my latest obsession. A high necked skater style stretchy cotton dress with delicate lace detailing on the collar and cuffs. A velvet bow and charm details complete the lace collar which like the cuffs is completely detachable. Yes you hear that right this dress is a 2 for 1 purchase. You get a full spooky look with the collar/cuff combo and be simply removing each piece (secured by bottons) you have an amazing fitting black skater dress.
I'm wearing this style in a 2XL and the fit's actually really roomy. I have heaps of room in the upper arm and should region so I think I might also purchase an XL for a more firm fit around that section and on the bust. The 2XL has a little too much bulk for me in the top section so I'm keen to size down.
The skirt is a really flattering length and whenever I wear this I get heaps of complements. It's also a great Transeasonal piece as you can layer this in winter or pair it with cute mary janes as the weather warms up.
Graveyard Mini Dress - £53.99
Next we have the Graveyard Mini! A style I'm very use to from Hell Bunny - a super short sleeved mini dress with bow tie and collar detailing. While I'm not a fan of the shorter sleeve I actually ordered this style to pair with black velvet ballet cardigans in my collection.
This style skims the hips, has heaps of room due to the stretch fabric and really does look great on a busty girl. I'm wearing the 2XL and the fit is spot on for me but I would like to see this style in a midi with a 3/4 length sleeve. As a girl with chunky upper arms I'm never a fan of a small cap sleeve but when paired with cardigans this is adorable!
What makes this dress pop is the graveyard detailing on the collar. Those little embroidered elements make this dress a show stopper.
You also might have noticed my brilliant claws in each of these images. My absolute favourite creator Nightmare Nails made some serial killer magic in nail form for me. Featuring all of the iconic and creepy serial killers of the 20th century - a perfect accessory if you are a true crime buff like myself.
Roses and spiderwebs are such a popular print and the Sabrina captures this retro repo trend with a spooky vibe perfectly. A full skirted (with pockets) sweetheart neckline dress that's make for an hourglass shape.
My shape however it's not working for. I'm wearing the 2XL and I can't get it zipped above my waist. I'm no where near a 3XL in any Hell Bunny garments but I'm sure I'd need to size up to one in order to be able to wear this style. So if you are contemplating this dress be sure to go one size up when you order.
This could also bee a miss labeled garment so I'll need to double check the flat lay measurements on this dress with the size chart or other sizes.
Vamp Jumper - £35.99
Lastly we have one super cute and creepy jumper. I've never been a fan of knitted jumpers as I thought they'd add a little too much bulk to my frame but I put paranoia aside and went with this amazing little black and white bat knit.
I'm so glad I gave this newer style a chance as I absolutely love it! It's the perfect crop shape to wear in or out of wiggles and swings, has a sleeve that hits just above the elbow and a super cute bat shaped motif. This style has made me believe I can give into more and more high necklines and knits so I can't wait to add more to my collection over time.
Many thanks to Damien Bowerman for all of his help shooting these spooky looks with me!!
