I’m having a costume dilemma. I can’t seem to come up with the right shoes! My super awesome super secret costume doesn’t require specific footwear, and I am feeling stymied by my options. With that in mind, perhaps next year I’ll start with the shoes, like one of these characters!
I’ve always loved Halloween, and though I’m more than twice the age of most trick or treaters these days, I’m still an enthusiastic participant! I put forth a huge effort creating my costume every year, and while I won’t give it away just yet, I will give you some easy ideas for your own!
A Flapper! Put on your prohibition era- best and brush up on your Charleston, in the Limon you’ll be able to dance all night! Optional accessories: Gallon of moonshine, and a gat-weilding date.
Little Red Riding Hood: Top your favorite LBD with a red cloak, and add the Siri for some extra flare! Like your Halloween a bit more gory? Get some fake blood and go as Little Red Riding Hood post-wolf attack.

I’m a lover off all things heeled, two toned, and laced up, so no doubt that the Franka is high on my list. It is a little business in my otherwise whimsical wardrobe, giving that sexy secretary vibe that I cannot get enough of. I’m wearing mine with pencil skirts and chiffon tops, or dressing it down with boyfriend jeans and striped cardigans. To further illustrate my love of the Franka, I made this collage. Hello!
