This Halloween season, American Apparel introduced its “Costume Builder,” which we found out was really just a way to pass off clothes you already wear as a “costume.” Turns out, Urban Outfitters has also launched a halloween shop on its website, and although the offerings are slightly more holiday-appropriate, it’s still a bizarre mix of items.

I am endlessly entertained by the divides between men and women when it comes to fashion: the differing opinions on the definition of “expensive,” the controversy over red lipstick (is it glamorous or reminiscent of the Joker?), the thousands of times throughout history that women have asked, “Honey, what do you think of this dress?” only to be met with a vacant stare.

Oh well! The lacquers after the jump could be substitutes for the Cadbury collection. Keep reading »
