Halloween or Haute Couture?
It’s the beginning of my favorite month and it’s my favorite month because of the holiday at the very end! I’m so excited to bring back my themed posts called “Halloween or Haute Couture”!
Fashion is sometimes outright ridiculous but that’s okay (as long as it’s not doing harm to anyone or anything). So each day during the month of October, I’m going to play a little game calling out the strangest of the strange and I’ll also highlight accessories with a Halloween-esque theme.
