WHERE’S THE SAUCE?

Halloween Queens:

I know I haven’t posted many outfits in a while…

Massachusetts natives love Halloween (which you know, because you’ve seen Hocus Pocus at least thirty times…because you’re alive on Earth…)—and it’s even more exciting for fashion fanatics. IMG_0571I celebrated at work in my Black Milk skeleton bodysuit, American Apparel’s amazing Disco Pants, and my Rag & Bone for Intermix blazer with perforated leather sleeves. I left my lashes bare and completed the look with Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in “Terre De Feu.”

While I was perfecting the art of apathy as Wednesday Addams, Amanda was in New York City killing it as the White Queen:photo.PNG…And then I was a little busy being a queen, myself:PicFrame

I had so much fun paying tribute to Freddie Mercury…and developed a newfound respect for men with mustaches.

Although I’m sad the festivities are over, Amanda and I are excited to get back to work! I have a lot of cool stuff coming your way, so stay tuned and stay saucy!

Halloween Throwback–

Amy Winehouse

A long shift at work and a nasty cold kept me from providing you with the weekly Halloween throwback yesterday. So please enjoy…

368_1040548254256_5569_nLet me start by saying Amy Winehouse is one of my favorite singer/songwriters of all time, and that I wore this costume in 2008, long before her death. (This picture was legitimately taken in my high school cafeteria.) Now let me say that, yes, the “Rehab?” wife beater I’m wearing says “NO, NO, NO” on the back. I got this incredibly realistic beehive wig on Ebay, and the floral hairpiece and many, many temporary tattoos are from your average party/costume store. Although the shirt is a reference to one of Amy’s most famous hits, and the woman was, admittedly, a hot mess at times, the fact remains that she had a beautiful presence and a strong sense of style. Sometimes I wish I’d worn something to reflect her passion for retro fashion and sweetheart necklines.

jeffrey-campbell-shoes-multi-the-fruit-bowl-shoe-in-multi-product-1-1433072-966955517_large_flexI had a Teenage Dream Halloween in 2011: I channelled Katy’s signature wacky style with my Lazy Oaf watermelon skirt, lacy bralette from LF Stores, and Jeffrey Campbell’s awesome Fruit Bowl shoes. You can get the purple wig at any traditional party/costume store, and the floral hair piece is from a stand in the Copley Place Mall. I used Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in “Satin Fuchsia,” and Essie’s “Turquoise & Caicos” and “Pink Parka” nail polish. And yes, I have worn all of these items (apart from the wig) on occasions other than Halloween, thank you very much.PicFrame-1
