Hi everyone! I've officially started my Halloween-themed blog posts and videos, I'm sure you'll be happy to hear! Most of you know, I'm Halloween OBSESSED! It's my favourite time of the year; I prefer it to Christmas, my birthday - everything! I would have started my Halloween posts last month, but I doubt many of you would have enjoyed that, so a week prior to the big event is sweet enough -  yes? I've been planning a Halloween-inspired series of outfits for weeks now, which are all so me and fun to wear. I hope you like them..
This beautiful Spellbound dress was my first ever purchase from Nasty Gal. I was having a browse of their online sale last month, and I nearly wept with happiness when I saw this dress. As the name the suggests, it's magical and witchy - totally Spellbound! The sleeves are so Hocus Pocus, so 70s, so gothic-glam - what more do you need? I bought the dress for just under €30 in the sale, but unfortunately shipping added a chunk to that price, making my Nasty Gal shopping experience come to over €40 - not impressed! I love the dress to bits, but unfortunately it's also too long on me. I'm petite, so I experience this problem constantly with clothes - the dress is meant to come to mid-thigh length (on the 5"10 model), of course on me it comes to just over the knees. I tied it back with a bobbin for the photos, and I plan on getting it taken up soon. (Just a heads up for my fellow fun-sized gals..)
I teamed the dress up with some whimsical necklaces from The Button & Bow Factory and Topshop, along with my simple boots from Topshop also. As you may have guessed, I'm wearing extensions! These 22" inch bad boys are from Hair Trade, they're real human hair and are poker-srtraight. I used to wear clip-in extensions like these yeaaars ago, and I've been lusting over a new set for months now. They give my hair a heap of volume, and I can achieve a variety of more exciting hairstyles now that I have them. J'adore!


I recently recorded the much-loved I Love Fall Tag video, answering loads of fun Halloweeny questions, it was a bit o' craic to record and I hope you guys enjoy it too..
