Once When I Was back in Brooklyn a few years ago I dressed up as Medusa for Halloween. Now I live in LA and I can just repeat costumes. I’m starting off easy with this one. I always DIY my costumes so if you need a last minute idea, here you go.
You need a gown; I happen to have an awesome blue one I never get to wear because where am I going in a gown. Or go get a white sheet and tie it up toga style. Get some fake gold chains and twist a bunch one the shoulder of the knotted sheet, your waist and the wrist of the opposite of the shoulder. (Gotta stay balanced.) If you have a bunch of gold bangles and cuffs use these too!
Now you need your snakes. You can find the small, zig-zag kind for about 2 bucks at toy stores, gag shops or Halloween super stores. I don’t recommend getting the coiled up ones, too hard to manage. If you have long hair like me you can just braid them in and rubber band them. If not, I suggest getting a medium long wavy wig in red and banding them in there. If you want to get really fancy, top it off with a roman, golden leaf wreath and twist a snake around that as well.
Do your make up all pale on your skin, a red lip and lots of gold eye make up.
There you go, a quick, last minute, semi-easy, not slutty, relatively cheap costume.
The image above is by Megan Lara and you can buy it Society6.
Off to meetings today, not really channeling inspiration from anywhere specific. Just wearing some of my favorite go-to pieces.
The tie blouse is about 10 years old H+M. Can you believe it has lasted that long?! The stories this top could tell. (Trick is not to wash it after every wear, and wash in the delicate cycle.) Think about it, you don’t wash your jeans every time you wear them? I don’t wash my hair in every shower I take. Ok, maybe it’s just me. It’s not like I am rolling in a pile of mud.
I like to call this my faux-Chanel jacket. Yes, I know, you know it isn’t Chanel. I am not foolin’ anyone. By anyone, I mean fashion folks. It’s from Zara and I can’t find it for you on the interwebs.
These are my 80’s throwback floral jeans c/o Citizens of Humanity. I love them because the remind me of high school. Yeah, I am emotionally stunted.
Here are the Magnet clogs c/o Bed:Stu that got me into wearing clogs. I never met a clog I liked until I met the Magnet. Is it because I now live in LA and I am getting back to my hippie roots? I don’t know. Is it because the word clog is such an unappealing word? Could be.
I’m a sucker for a trend, so thank you MeChar for the awesome Brigid pouch.

I can hardly wrap my head around fall fashion in this heat but this is a great start.
Salvatore Ferragamo SS12
It is still summer so I am rejoicing in all florals and colors.

I know all the mags are showing fall but it is so hot in LA that all I can think of is florals and bare shoulders.
Such a hard glamour. Love the mint accent.
