FANCY FRIDAY :: Black Swan Masquerade + Stixie Pink Speaks GIVEAWAY


One of my favorite times of the year is dressing up for Halloween...

Alright, I was supposed to post something else today (according to my Instagram) but given that it's Halloween, it was only fitting that I posted this look instead (will post the other outfit next week). This is the outfit I wore to a masquerade birthday party last year. And let me just say, whenever you're going to a masquerade party, finding a really good mask is probably the hardest part of the outfit. I like mine to be detailed and a little unique so it made it a bit more challenging to find one that really sparked my interest. I was constantly searching online until I turned to Etsy. I've never bought anything off Etsy before but thank goodness to whoever created it. It didn't take long after until I discovered the Masquerade Mask Studio. There were so many mask options to choose from but I went with this purple and black black swan masquerade mask because it was asymmetrical and something I haven't seen before either. Even though Halloween may be only one day a year, this mask makes for a perfect room decor piece. One of my best purchases I've ever made to this day that always makes me smile when I see it. Now that's love!

{FASHION TIP: When dressing for a masquerade party, if you have an extravagant mask then keep your outfit to one color to avoid overdoing it.}
