What day is it? I keep losing track! Where are we? Who is THAT guy? GEEZE.
Oh October – I don’t even know what to DO with you right now. I have much to tell you ALL. I went to New Orleans. It was AMAZING. There are so many PIRATEY things there. I had no idea. I also ATE ALL THE THINGS. Well, as many things until I got full. I still have a list of ALL THE THINGS for the next visit. I also shot so much film! FILM! SHOOT FILM! But I have not received the film back from the lab so you have a whole analog film New Orleans EXTRAVAGANZA post to look forward to. You are so WELCOME.
So, Halloween. Is creeping on me like I DON’T KNOW WHAT. Multiple parties every weekend. I love it so but adult costuming exhausts me. There are all the ho bag items. I am in my 30s and that is just not (nor was it ever) a cute look for me. And then anything that is vintage clothing related feels sort of cheating cause those are more regular clothes for me. Maybe I am burnt out because every day is a little dressy. I should wear sweats on Halloween. Or Jeans. I would have to buy some jeans first. Where does one get jeans that do not suck. Friends of the internet – tell me your SECRETS and sources.
I meant to do this post at the end of LAST month and OOPS halfway gone already. We still have some season left though.
So guess what – I MADE YOU A PLAYLIST. Your favorite. I KNOW.
I tried to steer clear of the big hits – hopefully you will hear some Halloween tunes that are new to you. Be a Bittersweet Susie at your next gathering and take over that stereo and PUT THIS ON. Unless I am there. If I am there I am ALWAYS IN CHARGE OF THE TUNES. Trust me dears. It is for the best.
