Happy Halloween!

This year, I was lucky enough to go to two Halloween events (none on actual Halloween though...) I went to the traditional house party and then a proper night out.

Now I don't know about you, but I find that house party and proper night out warrant different dress codes. The house party is a safe environment where the majority of people there will probably know you, so it's safe to go a bit further with your whole Halloween look. I'd like to point out now, I am not massively into Halloween; to be honest, I just like eating the sweets left over from the teeny amount of Trick or Treaters and watching Halloweentown, but I do love a good party and an excuse to dress up. This year my house party costume was a pirate. Initially, I was aiming for a bit of a dead Elizabeth Swann, instead I wound up looking more like a sleep deprived Jack Sparrow, which interestingly worked better than my first plan!

Just in case you fancy recreating (probably a much better) version of this, the details are all below!

Leggings- Ebay
Shirt- Miss Selfridge
Necklace- Accessorize
Earrings- Borrowed
Bandana- Ebay

Lipstick- Rimmel Moisture Renew '380- Dark Night Waterl-oops!'
Eyeshadow- Noir, Sleek 'Oh So Special' Palette
Nail Varnish- Rimmel Space Dust '005- Total Eclipse'
Liquid Eyeliner- Maybelline Master Precise 'Black'

Moving onto the night out look. I'm always much less confident about dressing quite so 'out there' when I'm going to a club for Halloween. I'm sure many of you are a lot more confident than I am, so I'm sure your Halloween outfits will be incredible in comparison to my oh-so-original costume. Yes, I was a cat for Halloween, along with half the female club-goers. But, for me it's kind of a tradition. I have been a cat since I can remember, how adventurous! Anyway, here is my (not very catty) cat outfit: 

As you can see, not very catty at all and for that, I apologise!
Black Jeans- Topshop
Black Vest- Topshop
Necklace- H&M
Ears- Claire's

Lipstick- Clinique '12- Red Y To Wear'
Eyeshadow- Barry M Dazzle Dust '98- Petrol Black'
Liquid Liner- as before
Eyeliner Pencil- Mac Smoulder 'Black'
Nail Varnish- as before

Next year, I promise I will be more exciting! I would love to see what you guys wore for Halloween to get some inspiration for next year!

Also, just wanted to quickly say thanks for all your lovely comments- means a lot!
