monster mash


I adore Halloween. Always have, (probably) always will. A few days ago I attended an amazing Halloween house party hosted by Isla and filled to the brim with friends and strangers. My costume was Future Me, or what I intend to look like in about 45 years. I always put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to costumes, as evidenced by this post of all my past Halloween looks. Last year's costume was a "Sexy" Pottery Teacher (the funny part being that it was incredibly un-sexy). I already have a wardrobe that for most people is like a one-stop costume shop, but it seems too easy to pull from my own clothes so I always try to put something together that I would never actually wear. That's a pretty high bar when I already wear lots of goofy things! So basically I'm just dressed crazy this time around... but don't be surprised if this 1960's silver robe I'm wearing makes a second appearance on Fancy Fine as a shortened fancy jacket.

I wore costume number two last night and there will quite possibly be a third one this evening, so expect even more photos soon! Happy Halloween to all you lovelies... tell me in the comments what your Halloween costumes are!

OMG! You are too much! The make up is killing me! So silly! My bf and I dressed up as dirk digger & roller girl from Boogie Nights (if you haven't seen it, you HAVE TO and the costume would probably make more sense :) )

Happy Halloween!

I don't remember much after 11:30. I woke up the next morning in some frilly 1960s lingerie with a half eaten quesadilla next to the bed. WHAT HAPPENED!?

Too good. So clever miss Ashley!

My boy and I are going as a couple from the 20s... not too original but hey, it gives me an excuse to do 20s makeup and wear fancy clothes all over, hehe!
