Sure, dressing up for Halloween is fun and all, but buying a costume that you’ll wear for one night seems like a waste of money. We suggest you put together an ensemble from your own closet, then splurge on a little piece of jewelry that invokes that spirit of the season but can be worn all year. Diamonds make spiders seem a whole lot more appealing, don’t they?

Something tells us her mom, Michelle Williams, would let her wear the dress everyday if she asked. [Brooklyn, NY, 10/16/08] Keep reading »
Halloween comes but once a year, and unless you’re dressing up for your boyfriend, you probably won’t have a chance to put on your sexy nurse garter until next October. But there are a ton of things at Halloween stores that you can make use of after the holiday.

Um, give this band a Grammy, stat! Thanks to Glamour.com for pointing out the stupendous song and accompanying video for “Walk of Shame”, a tune penned by Shayna Ferm & The Upper Deckers. We’ve all been there (well, we have) and some of the memories make us cringe and laugh — but now they’ll make us dance. But all that got us thinking…what’s your worst/funniest/most awkward walk of shame story? On Halloween about five years ago, I actually went as “The Walk Of Shame” (man’s button-down, high heels, smeared lipstick, phone number on my hand, bedhead, etc.), then ended up going home with a fellow (he was dressed as a chicken, if you were curious) and had to do the walk of the shame the next morning in my walk of shame costume. Oh, and I broke a heel running down a flight of stairs. Beat that! Share your stories, in the comments. Keep reading »
There’s good news for the pack of nearly a dozen fashion mavens that came to my Halloween party dressed as Amy Winehouse: she’s launching her own line of cosmetics and accessories! From hair scarves to liquid liner, the vamp style icon has been in talks this week to create products based on her unique look. Winehouse, who just hosted a makeover/sleepover party this week with Kelly Osborne and her goddaughter, has had her praises sung for more than her sweet 60’s style. The five time Grammy Award winning voice is poised to send boring boho fashion into style rehab. From the looks of all her excited fans, it’ll be straight eye for the queer guy…and gals like me!

Let’s face it, the best part about Halloween is that otherwise demure women can dress up like sluts. Insert “sexy” in front of any profession/character/noun and you’ve got your costume — Sexy Librarian, Sexy Mustard, Sexy Football Player. However, we draw the line at sexy costumes for kids. On a children’s costume website we came across, the get-ups for girls under the “Occupational” category are a pedophile’s wet dream and should be every mom’s nightmare. Take “Major Flirt Child”, a mini-skirted army green fatigued tartlet who’s got boys standing at full attention! It’s never too early to teach a lady how to toy with men. But why stop at just flirting? Your nine-year-old would be even more fetching in the Halloween parade as a “Playground Tramp.” [Girl's Occupational Costumes] Keep reading »
