Everything is vintage!
Happy All Hallow's Eve, my pretties! I hope you are enjoying this magic-filled day---it's my favorite holiday out of the entire year. I've always adored the notion of dressing up in a ridiculous outfit (well, duh), but as I've grown older, I've come to appreciate the darker roots of Halloween.
Every holiday has ancient roots and for me that's a huge aspect of how I personally view and celebrate that holiday. Most holidays (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving) are rooted around traditional religion and family values, but Halloween looks back to days of ancient mystery and terror. Which I find quite thrilling, actually.
If I had a choice as to how I would spend this Halloween, it would be in a pseudo Gothic-Victorian outfit, surrounded by my closets friends, having an Old World picnic of bread, cheese, hard salami, olives, and champagne on a gravestone slab in a forsaken woodland cemetery. With candles. At midnight.
Special thanks to Tifani Ennis of Good Ship Photography for making these beautiful pictures happen. She is a ray of light in my world, and plays the part of a Heaven-sent angel in my previously-mentioned style evolution. Thank you for collaborating with me, and I can't wait to see what more magic we will make together in the near future!
