I'll take thee away, into a land of enchantment


While the strange, unexpected snow fell here (which it almost never does before Halloween) I spent Saturday curled up on the couch with biscuits and honey while I watched Teen Witch. In the evening Rich and I trekked out into the ice and snow to go to Meghan's for chili and games. While we were there my childhood favorite Halloween movie came on TV. When Sarah Jessica Parker sings the "Come Little Children," song I always get chills up my spine. Its so spooky in the movie how her sweet voice lures the children to the woods so that the witch sister's can steal their souls.
This outfit was a little bit Teen Witch, a little bit Hocus Pocus-witch, since I haven't really put together a costume this year.
vintage dress and hat, F21 sweater, Gap velvet blazer, Seychelles booties, Payless purse, crystal bullet necklace

  4. I have to watch Hocus Pocus before every Halloween comes. I already did it a couple days ago. It just never gets old! I love your orange skirt and the pretty velvet blazer you paired with it.

  15. The orange dress is a much more elegant way to celebrate the holiday than the typical "sexy black cat" costume. I really like the mix of patterns and colors here.

    I just saw Hocus Pocus again for the first time in years. There are a surprising amount of sexual innuendos to that film ha! Particularly, SJP's character wanting to "play" with all of the little boys ha

  20. Love how your outfit is Halloween inspired w/ the colors but super cute still! I'm taking mental notes of how you wear sweaters like this over things, always so cute. Loved seeing those childhood Halloween pics above, so sweet! Bummer about the evening though.

  21. Aww thanks! I have a hard time with cropped sweaters because I'm so short, so my best tip is to just yank them back on my shoulders so they look shorter in front ;)
