The Fabulous! Festival presents: Halloween!
Firstly, I'd like to apologize for the delay in posting this-- yesterday I was returning from New Orleans, and ran in to some major car troubles on the way home-- so much than it pushed a 12 hour trip in to an 18 hour one! Now, on to the festival!
My Favorite Tricks and Treats!
As I feel the very subtle changes in the weather, I have to realize Halloween is upon us! Coming from New Orleans, where Halloween is as venerated as Mardis Gras, I have to think about the great things that come from this holiday and all of the fond memories I have of it. So for this edition of the Fabulous! Festival, here are others who find as much joy and jubilation in the upcoming days as I do.
I absolutely adore The Bargain Queen's Last Minute Halloween Costumes. And if you've managed to let time slip away like I have, and Halloween has snuck up on you, then it's sure to spark some ideas!
Miss Janey has several Haunted October posts with glorious costumes, fantastic decorations, and tricks and treats galore!
Meg at All About Appearances covers all of the magical elements of Halloween; my favorite part is her section about giving out Candy! Yum! Similarly, Une femme d'un certain age waxes poetic about the greatest candy of all-- candy corn! and other great holiday delights.
Gilda at Holiday in the Sun revels about Patricia Field's Halloween display and talks about how excited she is to celebrate Halloween for the first time here in the United States (and in NYC nonetheles!). Gilda, I hope you have an AMAZING first Halloween!
At the Space Between My Peers, Rebecca focuses on one of my favorite parts of Halloween-- the COSTUMES! She discusses her process about making "Frankencoat."
Not Halloween Related, but Still Fab!
Girls Who Network talk about developing your personal style and "brand." I love the marketing approach!
Doris Goes Shopping features a beautiful tiara shop (which, coincidentally, could be easily incorporated in to costumes!).
For those of us who manage to miss the runway activities,Alexandra highlights the best and brightest of the Fall/Winter runway looks.
The next edition of the Fabulous! Festival will be at Une femme d'un certainage on November 12th; the submission's deadline is November 9th, and you can enter them here. The theme for this festival will be Travel Style:
Do you have travel stories about fashion, beauty, shopping or personal style? How do you stay stylish on trips? What tips do you have for fellow travelers? Submit your posts on these fabulous topics!
Following this festival will be the November 26th festival, held at HATastic. The theme for this festival will be hats (naturally!). The Fabulous! Festival is seeking fabulous hosts for the upcoming carnivals, so if you are interested, please contact Meg here.
Be sure to check back here in the next week-- I do hope to have Halloween pictures up from my weekend trip to New Orleans, talk about favorite Halloween activities, as well as show off a costume or two of my own!
Many tricks and treats, bijouxes!
