Can you tell what it is?

Hi all! How's your week going? I have had another busy week so far. Last night I received two deliveries of clothing for the Sweet F.A. fashion auction I am organising. I had a quick look through the first delivery and there are Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs and Moschino shoes (all too big sadly), Sass & Bide jeans, a World blazer AND an amazing Lanvin for H&M dress that I may have my beady eye on! Yay! So the event organisation is going well. 

What are your Halloween plans? We have friends visiting from Sydney this weekend and so the bf and I are having a Halloween themed bbq on Friday night. I've made some quick DIY decorations and am going to dash out later when I have a spare hour to see if I can find some more cheapies. I also want to make some Halloween theme (EASY!!) cupcakes - PLEASE, DO YOU HAVE A SUGGESTION?? :)

On Saturday night we are all going to a Halloween party at a friend's house. Last year I went as a clown (I will post pics tomorrow!) and this year I felt I had left it too late to get a good (cheap and easy!) costume with everything that's been going on. BUT yesterday I rushed out of work at 4pm and found THIS fabulously sick dress in a charity shop for $10! WOW! OK, it doesn't actually do up at the back (it's very narrow) but I'm hoping to DIY a solution to that - I just loved the sleeves! 

SO - can  you guess what my costume is going to be??? :)
Excuse the floor - I took these photos in work! The dress is also still damp, I hand washed it last night as it smelt like grannies, but it STILL smells! Gross!


Are you dressing up for Halloween??
