Happy Halloween 2011!!

I think I am/we are done this year's Halloween!! We went up to California of Science Museum last Sat. with friends and had an awesome Halloween evening there.

Here are some highlights from the evening. 

I am suppose to be a tulip goddess but then I turned out to look like Russian Babushka doll with pieces I put together from my wardrobe. {I guess it is a good thing that I didn't spend a dime for my costume.}

The lashes are long and curly which I bought at Rite aid and they are meant to be the look for Vampire's mistress. 

I attach Shu Uemura colored lashes at bottom eyeliner. 

Me and my Ilona, Princess Cinderella.

Wizard of the Oz family!

Winter is never been this colorful and playful!!

After painting the soffit of my kitchen green, I found myself a new color frenzy. So now I am in a phase of being crazy about green. It all starts from my sage green hairband which I intended to cover my two blisters at forehead.  { Can I say that I am Self-inspired by that? } 

The color palette is sure more colorful than ever on this season's runway and I am glad that we have so many options to dress ourselves in colors in winter time!! 

Yesterday I was trying a cape/poncho from J Crew but since this style is secondly marked down, they really don't have many sizes left to choose from. Therefore, I tried on size Medium and didn't like the slouchy drop around my shoulders so I passed it. {It really is a great deal of additional 30% off from current $99.}

The Herringbone pattern is nice and always a classic.

I want to complete my houndstooth Marc by Marc Jacobs green dress look with an oversized clutch. However, all I have is green one from Zara which wouldn't work in this outfit so I decided to make my own version to make it work. 
 Here I hook Louis Vuitton straps onto my Givenchy studded Tinhan hobo and make the shape more squared as messenger style. ... now I love it!! 

My original outfit 
Past season but always classic houndstooth Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, green headband, black tights, (my new Tinhan messenger bag), Charlotte Olympia 11' velvet cat face wedge platform,  Lu Lu Frost for J Crew necklace and matching earrings, Prada s/s 11' minimalist cat eye sunglasses 

 I didn't go home with empty hands.... this J Crew harvest tweed Cape Capri is a perfect playful fall pants for me. 

 I actually don't have to alter the hem of this houndstooth dress as I only need to pin it in one inch to make the juxtaposition perfect!!!
{Do you think the look is very resemble to Marni's runway look?}

Be bold, be fun, be playful with your winter look.
