Question Too spooky? - October 26th 2016, 11:46 AM

Hi all!

So since Halloween is coming up soon, I'd been wanting to take the chance to wear some slightly spooky stuff just as my way of celebrating (since I won't be trick-or-treating or going to any costume parties)- nothing too excessive though.

On Friday, I'm going on a double date with my boyfriend, one of my best friends, and her boyfriend. Obviously, I've never met the last of these three people, so when my mum saw what I was planning on wearing, she nearly freaked out, saying that I need to blend in more, I might embarrass my boyfriend, my friend's boyfriend will think I'm a freak, etc.

Here's the thing though: I don't think what I'm planning to wear is too excessive. I'll be wearing the dress and tights that I'll post links to below, plus a simple black cardigan, ankle boots (low heel), an ear cuff w/ a chain and some fairly dark makeup (with black lipstick, of course). Yes, I get that it's not totally ordinary, and that I will attract a few looks, but I don't think that that's exactly 'crazy' or that I would have pictures being taken of me or anything like that, which is what my mum seems to think.

What do you guys think?

The risk I took was calculated, but boy, am I bad at math.

I think it looks cute too! Not too spooky at all, just fitting with the season is all. I think you'll look awesome, go for it!

I don't think you'll be too spooky or embarrassing. If anyone asks, you can just say that you wanted to celebrate Halloween in your own way. Nothing wrong with that. Plus, I think the outfit will look quite cool- I love the tights!

I know it's a little late and you've probably already worn this but I absolutely love the dress. It's cute and depending on how you wear your makeup it could be spookier. I thought the tights were a nice touch as well. If I was braver I might do something like that next year!

I don't know how you normally dress or if your mom is more conservative in regards to what she wears but that might have contributed to her reaction!

Hope you have fun!
