Many Halloweens ago, a good friend of mine decided to dress up as a booger... She was like "I'm so sick of girls trying so hard to be pretty on Halloween. Everyone's like I'm going to be a fairy."
In related news, I was a fairy for Halloween this year. What can I say? It was a last minute costume, and Party City is bursting at the seams with fairy wings, and you know what else? Sometimes you do want to wear something pretty on Halloween. Although a booger costume would be way more original.
We hit a masquerade party at a friend's gallery before going off to the mountains this weekend. It was good times. My hair was purple. My dress was thrifted. It remains the best dress ever, ever, ever.
A little girl was at the gallery, and she had fairy wings too so we bonded over having awesome fairy wings together. Having fairy wings is pretty awesome. And so are ruffled dresses. And purple hair. And Halloween, just in general.
