June: Dixifried Wrap Top + Darling Dames Skirt in Monster Print - Pinup Girl Clothing
Spencer Pump - Amazon  |  Skeleton Hand Hair Clip - Etsy  |   Bracelets - vintage Bakelite + Splendette

Halloween is our favorite holiday + it's Collin's (June's husband's) birthday, so we use the entire month of October as an excuse to wear Halloween-themed clothing.   I mean, if we're being real, we wear Halloween-themed clothing ALL year long, but this gives us an even better excuse. ;)  Pinup Girl Clothing has some of the best options for ghouls who want to wear spooky themed items.  We opted for the classic Jenny Skirt in Spiderweb Print and the newly released Darling Dames Skirt in Monster Print, which is a lot like the Jenny Skirt but 1) has pockets and 2) is much shorter (I'm 4'10" for reference), it's the same great fabric as a Jenny Skirt and very petite friendly. Also, we found it runs a bit smaller so if you end up ordering one, we recommend sizing up if you're between sizes.

When June took her pictures she had a few epic shots that looked like she was preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse so I decided it was 100% necessary for me to do the same.  Then we had some fun and made the cover for our imaginary zombie B-movie...  I would totally be okay with starring in Peaches 'n' Scream...but only if Daryl Dixon would be there to help us kick ass on his motorcycle. 

What are your Halloween plans? 

Hell Bunnies

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Amelia: Mimi Dress in Green c/o Hell Bunny | Black Hansel Heels - BAIT Footwear
Purse - Vintage | Black Bead Necklace c/o Splendette | Canvas Underskirt - Pinup Girl Clothing

June: Hermaline Mini Dress c/o Hell Bunny  |    Reversible Cape - vintage (old nurse's cape)
Black Knee Socks - Pac Sun (similar)  |  Black Classic Jellies - Sun Jellies  |  Picnic Basket - vintage

It's officially that time of the year where the leaves are changing and every outdoor picture looks like a scene from a fairy tale.  June's been re-reading Grimm's Fairy Tales and giving me daily recaps on how gruesome the original stories are (and has been live updating via Facebook, which is pretty hilarious).  So, now we know we definitely would NOT want to be characters in Grimm's Fairy Tales, but dammit we will dress like it.

Hell Bunny recently sent us some autumnal pieces from their new collection and the details on them are so cute.  My dress has double-breasted buttons, which is something I don't have much of in my wardrobe.  They remind me of vintage coat dresses, in the best way. June's dress is going to be a great piece to wear through the fall, and we love the little velveteen bow + collar.  Also, because we can't tease you and then NOT share the incredibly interesting, abridged  summaries of Grimm's Fairy Tales, we'll end with:
  • "To offset my stress from finals, I've been listening to the original Grimm's Fairytales on audiobook while driving to and from study group. Today I ended up on the original version of Cinderella... And at the end the stepsisters get their eyes pecked out by birds for being bad people. Wonder why Disney left that little bit out"
  • "Daily Grimm's Fairytale Update #2: at the end of the original Snow White, they make iron shoes and heat them up on a fire and then make the Evil Queen wear them and dance around until she dies.... These just keep getting more peculiar."
  • "Grimm's Fairytale Update #3: In the original Rapunzel, the prince is so depressed when the sorceress cuts Rapunzel's hair and removes her from the tower... that he jumps off the tower... and does he die? Of course not. Apparently his eyes land on thorns and he becomes blind. BUT DON'T WORRY after wandering for years and lamenting over poor Rapunzel, he hears her begging on the streets and singing and they find each other again... and she cries in his eyes... and he can see again. HAPPILY EVER AFTER"

Amelia's Details: Brooch - Match Accessories | Tights - Target | Yellow Heels - Bait Footwear

Recently, we were sent the Dress of the Month from Unique Vintage's Dress of the Month Club.  To be a part of the Dress of the Month Club, you pay $50 and they send you the dress for that month.  If you don't love it, you just send it back and get a credit toward next month's dress.   We love the idea of receiving a surprise dress every month!  Especially when you have the chance of receiving something you'd never choose for yourself and ending up loving it.  We decided to show how each of us would style the same dress.  We didn't talk or see each others photos beforehand, and we love how differently we styled it!  It just goes to show how versatile a dress can be--especially a cute nautical one! 

Also, Unique Vintage is currently hosting a giveaway where you can win a year-long subscription to their Dress of the Month Club. A winner will be picked every week through the end of October so act quick because it's over on October 31.  Unfortunately,  the giveaway is open to US only, but the Dress of the Month Club is open to everyone.  Be sure to enter here

How would you style this Dress of the Month? 

Wednesday + Lily

Cateye Glasses - Amazon  | Black Nana Heels - BAIT Footwear

June: Oceana Top + Pretty Pleats Skirt (similar) + Mrs. 1313 Brooch c/o Doll Me Up
To Die For Purse - Unique Vintage  |  Ballet III Flats - Melissa

Most people may not know this since we have generally sunny demeanors, but we're both huge fans of all things horror, give us dark + creepy any day.  Since The Addams Family + The Munsters mix our macabre interests with campy 1960s TV humour we are obvious big fans of both.  We're SO happy The Munsters is back on Netflix and the original Addams Family sitcom is on Hulu, we've been binge watching both.  Doll Me Up  recently started carrying an amazing new line of brooches and we love having a chance to let that side of us shine through... these Lily Munster and Wednesday Addams brooches are absolutely perfect for us!

// Also, hop on over to Doll Me Up's website, they're doing a 15% off sitewide sale (excluding sale items) with promo code "pecanpie".  We will forever recommend the Cropped Cardis + Pretty Pleats Skirts are personal favorites.
