Modern Snow White :: Halloween Inspired Outfit

Happy Halloween!

I start celebrating it early usually, festivities will no doubt be in the air already.

Speaking of air, the Vancouver air has been filled with whimsy as of late.

Vancouver in fog

The thin veil of fog makes this already breath taking city that much more like a fairy tale setting. This is a perfect backdrop for my costume.

I recently saw this ring on Sheinside and it immediately triggered my imagination.


Since I already have a Snow White costume, a blog post naturally fell in place.

What is Snow White if not with her buddies?

And her apple.

Even though the apple is what brought her into a comma, but without her comma, she would have never met her prince charming. So really, the witch did her a favour.

I ate the apple after the photo shoot and I knew why Snow White chocked on it. Red Delicious is anything but delicious. I almost chocked on it after the first bite. It's a disgusting apple! I'm sorry if this is your preferred choice of apple. But seriously, why? When there are so many other tantalizing varieties to choose from? Like the juicy Gala, the sweet Golden Delicious, even the crispy and tart Granny Smith has her own distinct taste profile aimed to please. All the Red Delicious is good for is matching these red heels.

I wanted to take this costume a step further and create a everyday wearable look based on Snow White. Like a modern day version. What Snow White would wear if she was a city dwelling girl like you and me.

I kept the heels, a good pair of red pumps is never going out of style.

Halloween is also about getting treats.

My "candy haul" this year comes as this deliciously amazing bowler bag from Vanlaced Avenue.

This bag honestly looks good enough to eat! Almost like a pale caramel candy glistening in the sun so glittery and alluring. The bag is only priced at $40.00 and you can get it right here.
