In the Spirit of Halloween, I spent the day not in a costume, but nevertheless, 'inspired' by it.
Halloween was traditionally a Ancient Celtic Holiday which they marked as the end of the harvest season and the beginning of Winter. The transition represented the somber bridge connecting to the world of the dead.
Of course now, such traditions are lost in buckets of candy, scary costumes and parties, but let us remember and be inspired by the true meaning of Halloween.
My outfit was based around two colors: black representing death and mustard yellow orange inspired by life and harvest.
These two bracelets are my most worn, and perhaps my favorite combination. The charm bracelet is from Harrod's in London, and the cuff of Marie Antoinette is handmade and sent from London.
These are my FURLA tortoise eyeglasses, and I wear them on most days I have off. My eyesight has always been quite bad, and contacts have always given me headaches.
The scarf is all hand painted, and one of a kind from Thailand. It was a gift from my mother and it is one of my most favorite pieces in my wardrobe. No longer simply a scarf, it is a piece of art. I am in love with all the little hand painted "aliens" that are all uniquely making different facial gestures. It's as if they are all trying to tell me something, but I simply do not know what.
The scarf is a very large square shape, and is bordered in black fringe.
I wore it, folded in half as a triangle, and tying it into a light bow at the back of the neck.
This necklace was handmade in Belgium. I purchased it from a ART shop in Brussels, and love the quirky elements. The stars are all uniquely different, and they float in circular discs, that remind me of bubbles.
The shorts are vintage and they are high wasted. I fell in love with the textile which reminds me of falling golden stars or falling leaves.
