Our latest outfit of the day is to help you get ready for the spooky season.
This skirt from Torrid features the classic movie monsters of Universal Studios. I love how companies have been re-embracing the classics when it comes to Halloween. I grew up watching these movies on “Sci Fi Theatre” back in Arkansas in the olden times, and I absolutely love them.
The skirt is made from scuba, so it holds it shape nicely while being stretchy and comfy. The sweatshirt is from Target. I absolutely love the puffy sleeves on this shirt. It gives this very casual shirt a very fancy feel to it. Click on the links to buy.
Just as an fyi, Unique Vintage also has classic movie monster wear for this Halloween.
Our latest outfit of the day is my new Creature From the Black Lagoon from Unique Vintage. There is also a men’s button-down shirt version, but unfortunately Benji’s is on backorder so we can’t show it to you in this post.
The dress and shirt are made from a super soft stretch taffeta. The print on the fabric is super bright and really beautiful.
Taffeta holds its shape really well, so I actually did not even wear a petticoat with the dress in these photos. I wore it to Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank, and the day was pretty warm, so I was grateful to leave the crinoline at home!
I also was lucky enough to pick up the classic monster handbag in the photos from Rock Rebel at Son of Monsterpalooza.
The kiddo and I recently got to go back to Universal Studios Hollywood to check out the new Jurassic World section on the lower lot.
We had a fantastic time! The area was packed! Packed! So, Benji couldn’t even ride the updated ride. Even with the single-rider line (I’m too chicken to go on it), the wait was over an hour and a half! So, next time. Also, the triceratops wasn’t out and about. So, also next time. Now we have an excuse to go back, not that we really needed one.
But, we DID get to pet Tango, the baby raptor…
We also got to meet Blue and give her a command. It was awesome!
I know we looked scared at a dude in a suit, but once you are face to face with Blue, let’s just say it’s a little nerve-wracking!
For our day at the park, I wore my Alan Grant bound.
