HALLOWEEN: The Fashion Connection

Somehow, I don’t get Halloween. It’s a whole cultural movement that I totally missed while growing up. I don’t enjoy horror movies and I don’t like being scared shitless. But I like fashion and dressing up. So Halloween makes me think about fashion. I think “make-up”, “colours”, “outfits” etc.

In fact, I’ve been thinking about starting a fashion blog. I think I’d really enjoy it. To see what good fashion blogs are out there and what they offer, I went to the Top 20 blogs as nominated by LOOK magazine. These are few of my favourites:

Fash n Chips

Modern Mum Must-Have

Brit Pop Princess

 

Let me know what you think about these blogs in the comments and if you have any tips, idea, dos amd don’ts for me, please let me have it! 🙂

For those of you that haven’t ever been to Chicago, here’s an idea of the height of  many of the buildings over there…just epic! Especially for a village girl like me :-).

My neck just couldn't bend far back enough...Perhaps laying flat on the street to capture this would help. High!!

And finally, there were some scenes I just loved for different reasons. Some were mysterious, others romantic with a little more of a story perhaps. Here’s my favourite.
