Witching Hour

With Halloween creeping up on us, we're all on the search for that perfect costume. - But, who says that Halloween is just for children? - And who's rule was it that you're only allowed to dress up as a witch or a cat? Everyone loves to play dress up and with the new Witching Hour collection on Topshop, I had to literally stop my self from 'adding to basket' (with no intentions of actually purchasing anything!).  

This new trend is for the gothic goddess within. Its a mean, dark and enchanting trend that focuses on mystery and statement looks. Whilst scrolling through the amazing pieces this trend has to offer, I decided to do a 'get the look' because of course its getting to that doom and gloom time of year... and well what better way to embrace the horrific English weather and dark nights, than by dressing head to toe in black? 

We've all got a bit of Adams Family lurking within somewhere. So, I of course chose a leather jacket to go with the outfit simply because its a timeless garment that is also a staple wardrobe item. (bible. honestly it works wonders for even most outrageous items you may have hidden in your closet). This is an oversized biker jacket. If you feel the oversized look doesn't quite cut it for you and you feel like a motorcyclist rookie, then you can always opt for a more feminine alternative. Deep berry lipstick to finish off the outfit, teamed with a smokey eye palette, you're onto a winner. I chose these studded platforms because they're on keeping with the trend but don't overpower the rest of the outfit or cause any distractions. Then of course, the bralet and midi skirt with a lace over lay for the gothic queen within. - Happy Haunting my lovelies (cackles on que). 


  1. Love these Topshop items, and every girl should own a leather jacket! ox

  2. Lovely blog sweetie! I want the skirt myself hehe I love topshop lippy I'm addicted to their matte ones hehe

  3. I totally agree, I'd be nothing without my leather jacket. Well,actually i have three oooooops but still doesn't feel like enough! I need stopping before i go ott haha.

    I want all the items too. Topshop is amazing, i love it :-). To be honest I've never bought any of the make up from Topshop I've always been a loyal shopper to MAC, although I do have a similiar shade to the lipstick I've displayed. I should probably try out some of their cosmetics!!
