A Very Haunted Halloween


I love decorating for fall and Halloween, and just like my Christmas decor, every room needs to have a different theme.  I don't go quite as over-the-top with my Halloween decor as I do with Christmas (meaning every room in the house isn't decorated), but I always decorate my living room, front yard/porch, and kitchen.  Every year I have to have my "creepy" Halloween themed room, and I really go all out with the creepy cloth, spiderwebs, skulls, crows, and bats!  We just finished our creepy Halloween display here in the store and this year we made it extra scary with the addition of old dolls, mannequin parts and pieces, and more creepy cloth than ever!  We started the display by creating a giant hanging fixture with branches as the base that we tied the mannequin parts to and then draped completely with moss, creepy cloth, and cheese cloth.  Next we added old black and white pictures, skulls, and dolls throughout the display.  We took the creepy factor up a notch by painting the dolls with black paint and draping them with cloth to make them look extra worn and old.   Check out the finished product below and then some of our inspiration photos for our creepy Halloween look:

A Metallic Moment


Metallic shoes are having a major moment in fashion right now, and it's easy to see why. Surprisingly versatile and endlessly fun, they can easily be paired with just about anything and give every outfit a punch of pizzazz. And fortunately for all the fashionistas of Lexington, Street Scene has quite the selection of these babies right now - which means your fall wardrobe is about to get a lot more exciting.



















Until next time,

Anna

PRINTED PANTALONES

Well it's officially in the seventies here in Lexington. And while I'm more than ready for the leaves to fall, cool autumn temperatures do mean that it's time to start coverin' up those stems. It may be just about time to retire those summer shorts, but thankfully covering up can be just as fun. One thing that I'm really looking forward to wearing in the upcoming cooler months are printed pants. From colorful cords, to plaids, flouncy wide legs and even bell-bottoms, pants are all over the place in all different shapes, colors, and prints this season. I'll always be a die-hard fan of anything with some pattern to it, but there's something especially fun about a pair of printed pantalones. So grab a belt, a pair of boots and keep those legs warm people, its going to be a fun fall.


Need a Back-to-School Outfit Idea? Here's 50!
Come on, does she not look like a total bada**? These checkered pants look amazing with the patent leather boots, and i just love the little peek-a-boo of the ankle.


Fellas can have just as much fun with their bottoms too. 


fringe purse and printed pants, love the hippie look
I just died and went to pant heaven...Everything in this picture just went on my Christmas list.

While her feet may be just a bit chilly, the floral print looks perfect with this slouchy heather pullover.

I love how subtle this print is. It's like the flowers are just a little surprise for up-close on-lookers.

Sure it may be coat weather, but these florals are still in full bloom.

good from the back... dots + leather.
