Sandy Almost Ruined My Halloween…Almost

2 Nov


I usually try to post something new every Wednesday, unfortunately this week Hurricane Sandy came through town and threw my plans off course. I’ve lived in New York City practically all my life and have never experienced a natural disaster quite like this, it almost made me feel like it could never happen here. It is truly a surreal feeling.

Luckily, since Halloween fell on a Wednesday this year my friend Maribel held her annual Halloween party the weekend before the storm. I was a pirate. Classic!

As usual, i was scrambling at the last minute to put something together and happened to have all the pieces in my closet already!

What i wore:

Old Navy Vest (i’ve had this for years! similar one)

American Apparel Leggings

Ralph Lauren Blouse bought at El Mundo (similar)

Dolce Vita Riding Boots bought at Daffy’s for like $80 (similar)

Scarf c/o my momma

Sword from another pirate costume i own

…and here’s a link to the awesome YouTube video i used for the make up
