I am . . .

A vintage junkie, a legendary vintage junkie, who tries her best to put all of her insane & illogical feelings & illusions into words. I am who I am.

I loved this collection by Bouchra Jarrar. I just saw it now actually. I fell in love with the colors, the texture, the lines, the chic and very professional yet feminine look in these pieces.

Haute Halloween! Yeah Baby!

Rainbow Sherbet

This Dior couture confection’s begging for an ice cream cone. Instead of sticking one atop your head, wear a brown cashmere waffle-knit sweater either on top of, or underneath, the bodice of the dress and throw on red shoes for the cherry (or cherries!) on top.

Mary’s Chic Lamb
You can stand out from a sea of sexy cats and Playboy bunnies by dressing as a very chic little lamb courtesy of this Just Cavalli dress. Add a pair of Margiela booties for hoofs and skip the sunnies. Instead, line your eyes with kohl and wear a very pink lip.

Overgrown Veggie Garden
If you’ve ever seen a less than perfectly tended vegetable garden you know how easy it is for wildflowers to overtake tomatoes and zucchinis. This Dolce & Gabbana look wraps that up into one easy dress. Pile your hair atop your head and weave in plenty of green leaves, wrap as many green friendship bracelets around your wrist as possible and snag a pair of fruit or veggie earrings from your local costume store. Put your phone and wallet into a watering can for the night.

Brooklyn Flea
There is no possible real life occasion for which this Vivienne Westwood look would be appropriate—other than Halloween. So why not don the whole thing and go as the Brooklyn Flea, the one place in New York you could definitely find a jacquard cape, denim hot pants, gold glittler boots and a collared plaid bustier. Add a red lip instead of scary eyes, a sign reading “just $99” and carry around a Luke’s lobster roll (until you get hungry, of course)

An Aquarium
Versace’s spring collection was a one-stop Halloween shop—in the most lux way, of course. Add blue tights for water and ask your most artistic friend to draw a starfish or two on your arms. Blow bubbles all night long.

Fancy Jellyfish
Wipe your face clean, wet your hair and let few strips of cellophane trail behind you—maybe even throw some silver glitter on your arms—and voila, you’re the fanciest floating jellyfish!

Banana Stand
With the hugely anticipated return of Arrested Development happening sometime in the relatively near future there’s no better time to dress up as one of the many characters on the show. But instead of going for the obvious—a nevernude—how about the cash-filled banana stand? Stick dollar pills in the pockets of this Marni suit and add a $.75 sign on the lapel.

Lisa Frank Stickers
Henry Holland’s spring collection was an homage to the 80s sticker guru. Paint your arms and legs silver so you look like the back of a sticker sheet and, to really drive your point home, carry around a Trapper Keeper.

An MC Escher Print
Whether you add a real frame—or don gold shoes, gloves, and a hat—this one needs little explanation.

A Rolls Royce
The bottom half of this Viktor & Rolf dress bears a striking resemblance to the grill of a classic Rolls Royce. Snap the little man off of one of your soccer trophies and strap him to the front of your belt. Add a chauffeur’s cap and driving gloves and you’re on your way!

Radio Waves
In our dreams, radio waves, microwaves, and all the other waves we can’t actually see look as pretty as this pleated Dior couture dress. Throw on headphones and stick a boombox in one of your outstretched hands to make the costume crystal clear.

My favorite costume would have to be the Brooklyn Flea!
