Halloween is around the corner & it’s time to start rocking all your fab costumes. Sometimes we find ourselves not in the mood for a costume- and that’s okay. Get creative. Throw on something that makes you feel fab while still feeling festive. This Fendi dress from the vintage shop on Etsy, CARNAGE ET CLEMENCY, did JUST that. Although I am dressing up this year, I thought I would show my fab fashionistas some other options to rock it out on Halloween. Plus- vintage Fendi? OOF I get chills just thinking about it.
Anya Johnson, the founder of Carnage Et Clemency, created this vintage Gothic Apparel Store after being laid off from her job. Thrifting, she found inspiration to build her brand. Let’s thank her for it, because her pieces are sexy, chic, and perfect for the inner daring chick.
This piece is extra special. It is decked out in dark grey pearls finished with a bubble hem line. Let’s just say I feel like I’m channeling my inner Blair Waldorf right before she started becoming a bad ass & before Chuck got a his hands on her. (; But really, isn’t this stunning? and YOU can buy it HERE for only $86!
I added these lacy black heels, a deep red lip for that regal chic look, and topped the dress with my BCBG gold plated belt for that grunge touch. It’s important to make a piece your own- so I thought adding this belt gave it my own personal touch while keeping it slightly modern.
There’s something spooky about this piece. Maybe the vintage aspect? The mesh sleeves add a grunge detail that follows along with the tied bow around the neck. I truly think you could rock this on Halloween, just add a witch hat, or even some zombie makeup to channel your creative side.
& there you have it. You don’t have to follow the rules this year. How about surprising everyone by showing up in something just as spooky as it is glamorous? Carnage et Clemency is the perfect boutique to shop if you’re looking for quality vintage pieces. From leather, to satin, to lace, you are sure to find a piece that captures your daring side. I hope everyone enjoys their Halloween, drinks till dawn, & dances with the wolves. XO
