I've been a fan of this stunning shade of orange ever since I got my hands on the bad girl stripped top as it's so deep and suit my completion and hair perfectly. Oddly I've gone my whole life without giving into this Halloween shade and I'm shocked!
The Haunted Honey is the spooky dress of your dreams for all year round wear. You can style this up to pinup perfection for a night out, incorporate it into a costume, pair it with flats and bat sunglasses for daytime wear or layer in the winter with tights, gloves and berets.
Halloween shades are all about Autumn and man am I missing those stunning orange and red leaves as it's just hit spring down under.
Lets talk fit! I'm wearing this style in a 2XL and the fit is actually roomier than my Bardot dress in gingham as the fabric is slightly more forgiving and has stretch to it. I found the sleeves tighter on the Bardot and the neckline to be very firm but on the Haunted Honey the sleeves and neckline was roomier and accommodate my curves with absolute ease.
The bodice features the iconic Ben Cooper box art print of ghosts, spiders, jack o'lanterns, stars and more. The top section is fully lined, front fused which rocks for my busty shape and has an adorable little bow tie. The full skirted bottom of this dress in solid black makes your curves really pop. The faux pu leather thin belt also helps draw your eye to the small of your waist. I'm not wearing the actual belt that arrived with the dress as I wanted to add an extra spooky element to the look and paired it with my Kreepsville 666 Spider belt in a size L-XL. I only just figured out that this is a wee bit too small but still comfortable for my waist. I have the skull in purple and black and those are a 2XL.
While I absolute adore every single pieces in my collection I had to admit that this is my absolute favourite. There is something so magical and adorable about the print and I just love how it fits me. Like with many of the Vixen range you can wear this with or without a bra. I'm wearing my favourite little black molded Curvy Kate bra but you can choose to go free or even pair this up with a cage style to add that extra oomph.
For styling I kept it simple - a bold black belt and the most stunning Demonia's I've every owned. I've been collecting super thick and chunky Demonia boots and wedges for a while now but when I chose my Halloween looks these were the only shoe that came to mind. After trying the Cramps-10 booties I knew that the amazing base on the 06 version would be my dream shoe.
Featuring a 6 1/4"(16.25cm) and a Block Heel, 3"(7.5cm) Ridged Platform. The shoes are covered with studs on the upper section and feature a double ankle strap, pointed studs and skull charm detailing. I'm wearing these in a size 10 and they fit perfectly a all of my Demonia's do in that size. The height is huge on these so they ain't for the faint hearted but they really are amazing and so easy to walk in.
Demonia Cramps-06 Platforms - $132.95
The Haunted Honey is a limited release as are all of the items in this print and the Ben Cooper collection. So when they are sold out they will be gone for good. Don't let yourself miss out on any of your beloved spooky prints and order up asap. I could not let my favourite pieces pass me by so I'm currently waiting on an order of monster tees, a monster mask skirt and a orange and black stripped new troublemaker top.
