Happy Halloween my pretties!

I must say I had a friggin ball at the ball!  The night started out at an OLD SCHOOL steak house, complete with red velvet booths, crystal chandeliers, raging fires, and prime rib sliced table side.  Think Barry White meets medieval knights. I just found my favorite new old restaurant in Portland.  While at dinner my friend Cathy and fellow troublemaker for the night, mentioned how people with smart phones tend to have their noses in them all night long and then my phone locked up and was unusable the entire evening.  I felt so cut off, no phone, no camera, no easy way to get directions, no texting, I guess I'll just be in the moment and that is what exactly what I did, all night long.

I found this dress at goodwill for $6 on Friday and decided I wanted to wear it.  All the pretty of a corset but I could breathe.
Jewelry by me :)

Meet Cathy, the first friend I ever made when moving to Oregon 6 years ago.  She loves playing dress up and looks beautiful doing it!

At dinner, this guy rolled out an obscene metal barrel, the meat wagon and sliced me up some prime rib English style.  It may not look like much but it melted in my mouth!

 Halloween brings out all the freaks and slutty versions of everything imaginable, I'm not referring to myself.
The venue was the amazing old STAR theatre located downtown.  Below is what it looks like inside.
 and this is an old photo but the outside pretty much looks the same.  I love the feeling of old spaces, they really do have a life of their own.
When we arrived the first band was playing, everyone was dancing and the vibe was killer.
 There were even beautiful dancing girls!
 There was CRAZY gypsy music, complete with dueling cellos.

 These guys were from Russia and they got the whole place dancing and singing.
We watched the final band from the most perfect seat located in the balcony, sipping on our drinks and taking it all in.  Halloween is the best night to people watch!
 Some of the more memorable costumes we saw were; Osama Bin Laden complete with shot to the head, slutty Cruella Deville, the creepiest Goblin ever, an adorable voodoo doll complete with protruding pins, lot's of steam punk, pirates, furries, it was the perfect night.  I wish I could have taken all of you!!!!

We got home by one,  made hot chocolate and watched Boardwalk Empire.  The end! I'm off to catch up on my favorite blogs!!!!!  HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!

Finally Halloween weekend is here, YEAH!!!!  It looks like I will be going to a Voodoo Ball, complete with burlesque dancers, gypsy fortune tellers, live music and general celebration of all things dead and gone.  I haven't a clue what I will wear, but I work good under that kind of pressure and my closet is filled with inspiration.  While rummaging through my clothes I found this skirt that I haven't wore in a while, ain't it fun!!!
 You know what I love, SUNSHINE!

  and Zoe, Ash on the other hand let's just say I forgot how evil kittens can be.

For those celebrating Halloween this weekend have a wild time dressing up! I know I will. XOXOXO!!!

Purple, pink, hearts and Hello Kitty

Yesterday was friggin' cold and a sweater was in order along with some knee highs.  I have a thing for knee highs and I own about 20 pairs.  I like to tease Chris and tell him what knee highs I'm wearing :)

You will see all my sneakers before winter is over.  Adidas shell toes are my absolute favorite! I like it old school!

A ring handmade in Israel.
Last night I had a much needed night out with Kristi my BFF, let's be clear I friggin love this woman!  We ate drank and talked shit!

Things that make me *drool*

Have you every noticed when you are happy, everything seems to make you even happier.  I love how that works. I know things can get rough at times but that is when we need to dig deep and find out what really makes us happy.  Be in this moment, forget yesterday all that really matters is now!

Anything having to do with vampires gets my heart racing.  I love the series True Blood.
I mean look at how delicious the cast is.
What girl wouldn't want these two vampires fighting over you?
I love getting lost in the fantasy of it all!  Eye candy also makes me happy one of my favorite gothic models is Lady Morgana.  She takes my breathe away!

Not only does she model but she is an amazing photographer.   Check out more of her here. Besides all the deep heavy everlasting bullshit~ what makes you happy even if it's just for the moment?

BAM colors!!!!

Since I work from home I pretty much live in my gym clothes, I'm smelly, sweaty and unwashed.  I try and  take a shower and get dressed before Chris comes home, he married a hottie and I want him to remember that.  This is really a typical outfit for me most days if I clean up.  Casual yet BRIGHT!

My hair's getting long, I like it...more of a pain to dye though.

 My favorite necklace from the thoughtful Vix.

 I love me some bright sneakers, these are KSWISS and they were only $10 I bought two pairs about 5 years ago and these are the last pair.  I try and keep them clean, I hate dirty sneakers.
I love all the embroidery on these parachute pants, I thrifted them for $3.

 I like my plastic bracelets too.
This last one is so you can see how sunny it was.  Cold but sunny, I'll take it.
Chris said I look like an 80's chick, well I kinda am :) Have great week everybody!
