Halloween

Cleopatra

Cleopatra What I'm Wearing / ASOS Maxi Dress / ASOS Bib Necklace / ASOS Earrings / ASOS Arm Cuff I had actually purchased my entire costume coincidentally from ASOS last year but never had the opportunity to wear it. Last October we had an early snow storm on Halloween, and I didn't feel like going out to parties in a skimpy maxi dress while freezing my tukas off. This year Jim and I hit up party this past Saturday, so I finally had an opportunity to wear what I put together to be Cleopatra, and I was super happy with the results! Usually I'd spend bank on a crappy polyester getup at Ricky's and this was the first year I decided to be creative and buy my costume using "real" clothing items I can now re-wear. Not only did my costume look way high quality, but I can wear the rest of the stuff now that Halloween is over. Actually, I've been wearing that bib necklace non stop since I got it last October. Just sayin. Cleopatra Cleopatra Cleopatra P.S. Thanks to everyone who has messaged me on Twitter regarding Hurricane Sandy and how Jim and I were doing.  I'm happy to report both us and our families and friends are safe.  For Jim and I there was very minimal damage to our neighborhood which we are very thankful for.  It may take NYC a bit to get back up and running again, but I have complete confidence it won't take long.  New Yorkers are crazy efficient and we don't stop for anything, not even a hurricane.

Checking In

LGA - DEN Hola! Just checking in quick. It's been a busy week or so for me with work and whatevs. So here's the update.
  • I just got back from a business trip to Denver.  It was a really productive trip, but I'm glad to be back.  Denver's beautiful but I always get horrible altitude sickness while there as well as homesick for NYC.  I have to go back again in December for another meeting, as well as to Vegas in January for CES so it looks like I'm back on the road a bit again the next few months.
  • I don't think I mentioned it, but I changed my hair again.  I love it!  I went ahead and got bangs again and have been wearing my hair more wavy than curly.  I really love the change.  Here I am with the new hair and a pair of non-prescription nerdy hipster glasses I picked up while shopping recently just for kicks.

My Nerd-tastic Glasses

  • I was totes pissed my business trip required me to travel on Halloween. The only thing that made me more pissed off was this past Saturday (the unofficial Halloween party day) it snowed in NYC! We never get snow this early! I was so excited for Halloween this year and even got my costume early, which I never do. At least I opted to create my own costume from regular clothing this year so I can re-wear all the stuff, plus I have the costume issue solved for next year.
F you Halloween Weekend Snowstorm! How's everyone else's week been going?  Any big plans for the weekend?  Besides sleeping and probably  having to work, I'm planning on attending the Intermix Fur Protest on Saturday, so if you're going to be there be sure to say hi!

Halloween Clothes

  This morning I finally got around to purchasing the items I needed to create my Halloween costume. Usually Jim and I would hit up the local Halloween costume store, but this year I wanted to take a different approach. I always get really frustrated with the crappy quality and price of standard Halloween costumes, so instead decided I wanted to buy normal "clothes" and accessories to create my costume. That way I can re-wear the items in the year to come, which is more than you can do with a standard crappy costume. I managed to find all these items from ASOS online (the sandals I already have). Can you guess who I'm going to be? What are you going to be for Halloween?
