October is my favorite month of the year because it marks the beginning of 3 months of constant festivities. I never get sick of dressing up (even though dressing-up is pretty much my full time job) and I try and work in as many Halloween costumes within this month as humanly possible. I love the above photo of Andy Warhol and Nico costumed as Batman and Robin. I have a few costume ideas that I will hopefully be able to pull off and I will be sharing some ideas for you sporadically throughout the month. Do you know what you're dressing up as?
I made a Halloween mix last year which I recently re-worked and added some songs. Here is my Halloween playlist...feel free to subscribe to it on Spotify (I think you can find me under usename: paisleynotplaid).

Lanvin's Fall 2013 RTW collection leaves me happily surprised by how young and fun it is. I have an affinity for the use of text in art & fashion, and these necklaces are no exception.
This collection is a teenage dream come true.

Between taking a new job as Fashion Editor at Black Card Mag and planning my wedding, I haven't had any time to update my blog...but now I'm back! Ben and I had a truly special day last Saturday when we were wed at Marvimon. It was so meaningful to have everyone we loved in one room celebrating with us. I will share photos of the big day in a few weeks when we get our professional photos but here are some photobooth pictures from the night:
Stay tuned for more fashion-related entries later this week!

I've been asked to style a lot of 1970s inspired shoots lately, which has been a challenge since it's my least favorite decade aesthetically. Not to say that I don't find any sort of inspiration from the 70s, but compared to the creative and innovative style of the 60s, the style of the 1970s is a bit casual for me. However, I was very inspired by the film Klute (made in 1971 so there is still some leftover 60s fashion...probably why I was inspired by it) starring Jane Fonda as a prostitute, helping solve a mystery with a detective played by Donald Sutherland. It goes against my instinct to draw inspiration from a prostitute...that is just silly to even type...but Jane Fonda's wardrobe in that movie is simply iconic. Fonda's character, Bree Daniels, does wear color (and even some sequins) but I wanted to keep all of the looks in neutral tones. Thais is a fellow Ford Model who I've known for a few years now so it was fun to work with her in a different capacity. It was a fun shoot and I might even be warming up to 70s style. ;)
