“If you can't laugh at yourself, life's gonna seem a whole lot longer than you like.”
– Sam (Natalie Portman), Garden State

When figuring out a costume for today I couldn't pass up making fun of myself as a fashion blogger.  I'm proud to be one, and I am so glad blogs are out there to show you don't have to fit a certain mold to be stylish and have fun with fashion.  But you gotta admit, it is pretty funny of a hobby/profession!  Much love to my fellow fashion bloggers, and I hope all of you have a very Happy Halloween!

  1. Hahahahahahaha, you nailed it! Between the over-abundance of pattern mixing, the neon tights, and the hipster glasses, I giggled at every shot. And the poses!!! Too too funny.

  2. I still can’t get over how cute this costume is. You have a great sense of humor! And you know I just thought, you should’ve done one of those poses where you’re looking down at your shoes, haha

  3. Allie, you look fantastic! I don’t remember seeing the bubble necklace on you. I’ve seen it EVERYWHERE. At one point I wanted one too…I think I’ll pass on that trend though. I was wondering what the reactions were from strangers and colleagues?

    1. Thanks Robin! I wore this necklace a lot earlier in the year, I think I got it back in March? Other than some folks gritting on me in Starbucks, I didn’t get much reaction, but then I drove to work and left early and I had coworkers dressed as Clark Kent, the devil, and John Lennon 🙂

  4. Hahaha Oh I love this! All of your poses are so happy and fun too. I love people who aren’t afraid to laugh at themselves and who don’t take themselves too seriously. Such a great idea for a Halloween costume!

  5. That’s too funny. I was thinking along the same lines; I was planning to see how many fall trends I could shoehorn into a single outfit.

  6. Your outfit reminds me of the character on Criminal Minds. CM fans will know who I mean. I love all your outfits and examples of clothes. I can’t see anything under the picture to right click. How can I find out the brands/sources? It is driving me nuts! Thanks!!

    1. My cousin said the same thing about CM! :-). As for the clothes I usually provide links but didn’t this time thinking brands may not like it :-). But the striped top is LL Bean, dotted top is CAbi, skirt Ann Taylor, tights Express, necklace eBay, shoes Franco Sarto, glasses Amazob (fake), orange belt Target, blue one Ann Taylor, orange bracelet also AT, blue one Lydell NYC, crystal necklace Ann Taylor… That’s all I can recall at this point, let me know if you have a specific question!

  7. Allie, you rock. This is awesome. Pattern mixing, bubble necklace, shamepuff, funny poses, fake glasses, PSL, bright tights, arm party and all. Love!

  8. I saw the sneak peek on instagram this morning, but never could have guessed this! Absolutely wonderful. I love it!

  9. This is FANTASTIC! You nailed it. The poses are hilarious, and I love the “pumpkin spice latte” prop! You covered everything – bubble necklace, pattern mixing, leopard print, arm parties, haha. Mad kudos to you for being able to laugh at yourself – some people take themselves way too seriously!

    Thanks for this post! 🙂


  10. You. Rock. Never mind the FABULOUS pattern mixing (seriously, how do you do that?!) but your sense of humor shines through these pics. I LOVE them! Thank you for making me smile, and Happy Halloween!

  11. That all said I love this look on you. I don’t care if its a parody. I’d just snatch the glasses off you. One thing that drives me BONKERS is fake glasses. I don’t know why but it rubs me the wrong way. My wheelcheer bound friend named those people the “nonperscriptors” like hipsters but more annoying.

    You just forgot to causally touch your hair in a “oh you caught me” way.

    1. LOL my husband asked why I bought a pair of BC Glasses because that’s what they called the real versions in the Navy (BC = birth control). I wore fake glasses back in school until I found out I actually needed prescription glasses and realized what a pain they are and how stupid fake ones are!

  12. wait weren’t you one of the ones encouraging me to wear stripes and leopard? 😛 I went back and looked and your weren’t but I burst our laughing at first because I had it on this morning and thought nah.

    1. Heck yes, and I wear it together all the time! Everything in this outfit is something I already owned (except the glasses) which I thought made it even better. The idea of this came from me thinking this spotted top would look great under a striped tee and how I wouldn’t have even considered pattern mixing if it weren’t for this blog. You will see me quite often in leopard and stripes, but maybe not leopard and stripes and dots and two belts and colored tights! 🙂

  13. Ahahahaha! Nailed it! You hit it all, the glasses, the excessive arm party, pattern mixing, the ubiquitous bubble necklace, the hair pouf, the giant latte… all you’re missing is the sad taking your own iphone photo in a mirror picture and the extreme pigeon toe pose! Or maybe some element of your outfit that’s a terrible, visible-from-a-mile-away-that-you-made-it-yourself DIY!

    1. I almost made collar tips out of aluminum foil or duct tape but ran out of time. I did buy fake nails with pre-done nail art but last minute decided against them fearing it would make work difficult today so you just get my ring nail painted in a contrast color!

  14. When I first saw this post I had forgotten it was Halloween. Relieved to realize you hadn’t completely lost it today. (laughing.) That’s a lot of look! Too cute!!!

  15. My favorite photo is the one where you are sitting on the curb. Did Emerson notice the over the top outfit ?

    1. No lie, when I went in Emerson’s room this morning she said, “Mommy too many bracelets is no good.” When I told her it was a costume she said, “That’s not a costume, silly Mommy. That’s your crab necklace and too many bracelets!” I was surprised, I was really thinking she’d like it and want to dress up like me. Guess princesses are cooler than fashion bloggers!

  16. I LOVE it!!

    I tried to do a Mad Men-esque thing with a hat and tie… everyone thinks I’m Annie Hall. So be glad there is NO mistaking what you are today.

    Bonus points for twee poses and the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Be sure to go ’round today telling everyone how “presh” they look.

  17. Very cheeky! And while technically you should be a bit over the top, you really do look fabulous 🙂

    I wore purple tights and mouse ears to work today 😛
