Halloween Costumes You Can Wear Again: River Song and 11

I figured for my last Halloween post I should really go out with a bang, and what could be better than two outfits in one post? Especially when those two outfits are incredibly nerdy? My sister and I are both Whovians so we attended Doctor Who Day at the British Emporium (had an absolute blast by the way) and once we were done stocking up on Jammie Dodgers and meeting fellowe Whovians, we figured it only stood to reason to capture our outfits and post em on here for all of you to enjoy!PicMonkey Collage4387riverhat shotApparently River didn’t get the memo that Stetsons are cool.IMG_4382IMG_435945274442Drunk giraffe loves Jammie Dodgers43914426jammy dodgerTardis self destruct button…or is it in fact a biscuit?4399River’s Costume

Costumes You Can Wear Again: Sherlock

Hello all! I have yet another fun Halloween look to share. This week I decided to try my hand at channeling my favorite consulting detective and high functioning sociopath Sherlock!

I have to admit I REALLY love this outfit, the purple dress is very reminiscent of the infamous Purple Shirt of Sex (don’t be alarmed its a fandom thing), I feel like my coat is pretty spot on, my tights remind me ever so slightly of the glorious wallpaper that is in Holmes and Watson’s flat, and what’s more English than a pair of oxfords?

Ya I’m pretty proud of this look and hope you all love it as much as I do.

So what do you guys think? Was I able to do the look justice? Are you a fan of BBC’s Sherlock? If so are you dying for season 4 as much as I am? I’d love to hear from you, so drop me a line even if its just to say hi. Happy Wednesday!

Fashion Friday Irene Adler Inspired

Sunday was the day we have all waited for, well I didn’t wait but that’s besides the point, the third season of Sherlock premiered here in the states. sherlockSo being the crazy fangirl I am I decided to do an Irene Adler inspired look for the occasion. I’ll be honest I hate the character of Irene but The Woman has style.

Black eyeliner: Besame

Blue “eyeliner”: Loreal

Lipstick: Ulta 

Coat: H&M The one I have has sold out but this one is a lovely alternative 

Blouse: Hot Topic bought it ages ago so of course there aren’t anymore but Forever 21 has a great one!

I hope you all enjoyed this Irene Adler inspired look and that you have a wonderful weekend. Cheers!
