17 Pairs Of Creepy Shoes For Halloween

Awesome Halloween Heels


These funky heels are perfect for Halloween, if you want to make a statement you can wear them with a costume, or for a more subtle evening or daytime look, just wear the shoes with a regular outfit of your choice.

Most of the shoes on this page are not fancy dress shoes, which means that they are well made, comfortable, and many are made by well known designers such as 'Iron Fist.'

These shoes are not only for Halloween, they are fun shoes that can be enjoyed all year round. If you like skulls, bats, and other spooky things, these creepy shoes are going to please you

Patterned Leggings

I absolutely adore patterned leggings and own many pairs. They are great for summer or winter as they seem to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It's getting colder here and lately I have been wearing my leggings tucked into cute woollen socks with a chunky black jumper, and they have kept me nice and toasty.


I have a lot of patterned leggings, my faves are really comfortable, with a lycra and polyester blend fabric. I think that's one of the main reasons I love these items of clothing, they are just so darn comfortable!

Butterfly Costumes


Butterfly costumes are wonderful bright affairs, they are eye-catching, sexy, and come in many colors and styles. Some of them are based on actual species and some are make believe, all are gorgeous!

The way each of the costume designers has portrayed the butterfly is interesting and unique, some use the black of the wings to pick-out sections of the dress, and some incorporate the wings into the actual skirt or bodice.

A butterfly costume is ideal for any dress up holiday, party or situation where you want to stand out from the crowd, the majority of the costumes here are short, but I have managed to find some very nice longer versions too.

80s Costume Ideas

The 80's was a fun and exciting era for me, I was growing up and was old enough to get to wear a lot of the colorful 80's fashions. Due to films like Flashdance and Fame it seemed like everyone wanted to be a dancer in those days, my friends and I used to get dressed up in our bright neon outfits and dance to the popular songs in her garden, we would even show up for school rockin' our neon leg-warmers!

It's fun to re-create those times with a cute 1980's costume, and it gives me a sense of nostalgia to look at these in-your-face outfits, and I keep being struck by how much fun we used to have getting ready in the 1980's, and how much color played a part in our outfits. I do like neon colors.....


Pinup Costume Ideas

Get The Sexy Pin-Up Girl Look With A Vintage Style Costume


Vintage and retro is very 'in' right now, if you are into your vintage fashion and have a costume party coming up then it might be a nice idea to dress as a pinup girl. Pinup costumes are well cut and very evocative of the 1940's.

A pin-up girl costume should be cheeky and sexy, the pinup girl look is very polished and one of wholesomeness and health. A large number of pin-up girl outfits feature details from the Army, Navy or Air Force, this is because pictures of girls were sent to soldiers around the world during WW2 to keep spirits up. Pilots would even paint their own pin-up girls onto their planes for luck.

How To Make A Pendant From Found Objects - DIY Fashion Challenge

*I am running my daily DIY fashion challenge weekly now as I am really busy at the moment.

Wire wrapped pendants are simple to make (if a little fiddly). The great thing about them is that you can harness almost any found object and turn it into something wearable. I have made wire wrap pendants out of a multitude of items in the past, sea glass, shells, pretty stones, crystals, and even out of pieces of ancient pottery that can be found scattered in the fields near where I live.

Today I will be making a new pendant, I make jewelry to sell, but also like to make it for myself too, I will be making a cute pebble pendant to add to my collection, and showing you how to make one too.

Dresses Coloring For Kids And Adults - With My Own Designs



When I was young, like many a little girl I was obsessed with my mothers clothes, her beautiful dresses in particular. One of my favorite hobbies was to make dress up dolls out of paper with a variety of pretty gowns based on my mothers own dresses. 

Another very satisfying hobby was drawing and coloring beautiful pictures of dresses which I would stick in a scrap book and dream about owning when I was older!

Dark Blue And Navy Coats

I have picked out some examples that I really like, some of the coats are really inexpensive, I have highlighted these designs in the section directly below, although there are plenty of bargains scattered amongst the other coats on this page.

9 Sexy Slashed Back Tops

Shirt To Top D.I.Y - D.I.Y Fashion Challenge (more pics to come...)

This shirt to top DIY is one of my own, which came about when I messed up a previous idea that I had. Luckily my partners denim shirt was sooo huge I had plenty of fabric to play with after the 'accident'. 

I did say that I would not be doing any sewing in my fashion DIY's, but I changed my mind half way through when I realized that I would not be able to get the top off without a zip opening on the side.

Vintage Fashion Looks Re-Created

Dress Like A Vintage Pin-Up For September


Every month I will be running one of these age fashion looks re-created. They will be specific for each month with seasonal clothing etc.

I will post a picture of a vintage pin-up then try to re-create her look with fashions available today. This months pin-up is this fabulous lady, she looks like she has been out and about in the countryside, possibly fruit picking!

She is wearing some sort of fitted peasant blouse, brown leather belt, a knee length A-line floral skirt, white low heel sandals, and a large country style straw hat.

I could not find a similar shirt, but the peasant blouse I found will have the same low cut effect when tucked into the skirt and secured with the belt.

The sandals I have picked out have a less chunky heel, just could not find chunkier sandals in white.

A short sequin dress is perfect to wear during the holiday season, sleek, sparkling, and full of sexy fun, sequins are one way to out shine the holiday decorations.

As you might imagine, a sequin dress can be really expensive, I saw some to-die-for examples for $1,000 and above, but I don't have thousands to spend on a sequin dress no matter how much I want it, so I have concentrated on beautiful sparkling dresses under $100.

The dress in the pic to the left is on sale right now at 80% off (limited sale offer) which makes it well under the $100 mark. Yay!

Here are 9 more lovely short sequin dresses that will bring a sparkle to the holiday season, without making a huge dent in your wallet! Oh and some tips on looking after a sequin dress, so that it stays looking fab.

Daily Fashion D.I.Y

I have decided that I will give myself the challenge of a daily fashion DIY or fashion up-cycling project. This means that starting from tomorrow I will be making or re-purposing something for my wardrobe every day... Unless I fail miserably at everything I try and become depressed and give up of course.

This could be jewelry, clothing, bag, shoes, hats, or hair accessories - I am useless at sewing with a machine, though I do own one, so I will be hand stitching if I have to sew.

Fruit Print Fashion

Spent a very fruitful day blackberry and plum picking yesterday (during a rather large thunderstorm :0)

I did actually intend to do a 'my style' shoot while picking the fruit and was dressed in fruit print clothing for a sunny day picking plums and blackberries. This was all ruined by the torrential rain, especially when I slipped down a clay bank and into a small river!

Lol, it was quite funny as I was with my neighbour, he tried to save me from slipping but I slid so fast that I dragged him into the mud with me! Both of us lying in a river covered in wet clay getting rained on. - It wasn't the best look, but we did get lots of fruit despite the accident. I seem to be rambling now...
