One day a year, we all get to live in the liminal dimension where ghosts stalk the earth and children are dinosaurs, monsters, and ghouls. This Hallows’ Eve, join the fun at Waterside Shops, where we have everything you need for a stylishly spooky Florida Halloween.
Frightening fashion, adult style
Accessories are a great way to add an eerie air to an outfit: at the decadent end of the spectrum, try Gucci’s Lillith handbag in rich, festive hibiscus red with snakehead detail: a bow to the mythological demon Lillith. For a softer, cuter look, Anthropologie’s kitty dress-up set will liven up a classic black outfit. And if you’re looking to push the boat out, we are in love with hot upcoming designer Dilara Findikoglu’s “alien goddess” embellished silk dress, available at Nordstrom.
Macabre and marvelous makeup
Packing the brand’s signature color punch, MAC’s acrylic paints are silicone-based and can be worn safely on the face or body for up to 12 hours: the only choice for bold Halloween designs. For seasonally orange nails, try Yves Saint Laurent’s Vandal Orange, available at Saks Fifth Avenue; while you’re there, check out one of the best black lipsticks out there: Givenchy’s Rough Interdit Vinyl extreme-shine lipstick, in Noir Revelateur.
Your little pumpkin will look just the part in a Max+Macy skeleton top and legging set from Little Luxe, or babyGap’s cotton-knit kitty sweater. For future ballerinas, look no further than Little Luxe’s ethereal and endlessly adorable Swan Song tutu dress.
The only problem with Mini Boden’s witch-cat appliqué tee, available for little and big girls at Nordstrom, is that it doesn’t come in adult sizes. And there’s more for cat-crazed girls: Little Luxe’s kitty ears headband by Oh Baby! Meanwhile, GapKids hits the ghoulish boy jackpot with a glow-in-the-dark skeleton hoodie.
What better way to serve up your candy and fall treats than in a copper cauldron? Pottery Barn has a beautiful range. And if you’re planning hallow’s eve at home, any family baking session is more fun with Williams-Sonoma’s skull cakelet pan. Whatever your plans, set the mood through scent, with a pumpkin chai candle by NEST at Nordstrom.
