How cool would it be

to carve the pattern of this skirt into a pumpkin?


You’d need more skill with a carving knife than I have, but I swear you could make it look almost identical.


My necklace? I made it.


My boots? They’re Kenneth Cole. And they’re exactly what I’d been looking for. Don’t you love when that happens?

    Happy Halloween! Colours look fantastic together.

    That skirt is SO unique. And congrats on finding the “right” boots… it’s not easy to find exactly what we want sometimes :)

    of course I love when it happens, especially because it rarely happens….

    Alinka — Ahaha! I love it! A big virtual hug!

    VancityAllie — Sometimes it’s even more frustrating when you’re looking for something so specific, isn’t it?

    Sofiasophie — And you, of all people, would especially appreciate finding the perfect shoe, wouldn’t you? Although, come to think of it, you could actually design one.

    This ensemble is positively scrummy – and absolutely ideal for fall! Loving every last bit. And that necklace? Ooh, you are a DIY genius. Loves it! :)

    Happy Halloween, darling! :)

    That would make such a cool jack-o-lantern. Do it next Halloween! Gorgeous necklace, I love that pendant. And lovelovelove the boots, esp the colour and the length. You’ll definitely wear them all year round.

    beautiful orange colour – that’s a classic warm tone that looks great on you.

    did you carve any pumpkins?

  • Reply Kelsey November 1, 2009 at 10:38 am

    Cafe — I am hardly a DIY genius, but thank you!

    Janet — Like you, I love how orange and that deep teal work together. Actually I love orange in general. It’s such an underrated colour.

    Dapperkid — Thank you!

    Nicole — You’re so right. I should actually try to carve it into a pumpkin (but that would require me to buy a pumpkin earlier than the day of Halloween)

    Liv — Didn’t carve a thing. (We literally bought our pumpkins at 5pm last night.)
