Halloween costume ideas: Annie Hall

Hello! I thought I’d get into the Halloween spirit over here since my Halloween posts from last year were a big hit!

Follow all Halloween tagged posts here for inspiration!

I’ll start with one of the easiest costumes, with items you probably already have somewhere in your closet! An Annie Hall costume requires some classic pieces. Vintage hat and glasses, khaki pants (not pictured), a white collared shirt, a bright tie buttoned under a black vest. You can also add a little wicker purse to complete the look.

Oh shorty

My last post got me thinking about how much I used to like showing my legs – it’s not that I don’t anymore, it’s just that the weather doesn’t really permit it here in San Francisco (and who am I kidding, I’ve become self-conscious about it!) So having been in Palm Springs gave me a flashback of a real summer where it’s okay to dress like this and not feel like you’re showing too much (cause everyone else is too!) just like when I lived in Vegas. This is my goodbye to summer post!

As always, click on the photo to get to the original post. And don’t worry folks, I always wear a pair of shorts underneath!

Bring on the cold weather outfits! Bon voyage short dresses.

Oh Palm Springs

Palm Springs ended up being one of those places I never really went to (spent one night there years ago while passing through to somewhere else) – that was until we were able to head there for a wedding. I wore my summer finest, which gave me flashbacks of living in Las Vegas during the hot summers – the heat sticks to your body and you avoid going out during the peak heat moments. But, because I’ve been deprived of this type of weather so long, I just went with it. Poolside by the day, wedding fun at night. All I could have asked for. This lady has needed a break.

I can see why people like coming back now, I’m ready to explore Palm Springs more one day.

Disneyland play

Sometimes you just got to unwind and enjoy yourself in a kiddy way, so we escaped to Disneyland for a little bit (although, the price tag isn’t as enjoyable as of late). I found my most Minnie Mouse looking outfit, comfy shoes, finally got myself a little embroidered cap, and I was set! Only kids are allowed to wear costumes, but there aren’t any rules about having fun with your outfit!

Psssst, I’ll be trying out this new table form for the outfit information – so I can track my shopping sustainability a bit better. I’d love your feedback about it (if you have any).

Spotlight On: Fidelity

You’ll be able to follow all of these spotlight posts here, but also keep up with my Made in the USA series here.

I have one goal by the end of the month, to buy a quality coat. Not a jacket, not a sweater, but a real coat that will keep me warm. So when I was doing my made in USA shopping rounds last month, this coat by this brand Fidelity caught my eye. You don’t see too much outerwear made here, so I thought I’d look a little more into the brand. What I found was a heritage brand that had been manufacturing coats for the military. Fidelity manages to span from utility to fashion – these are the type of brands we should strive to support!

Their about section states

Fidelity Sportswear was established in 1941 in Boston, Massachusetts as a military supplier to the US Navy. Gerald & Stewart Webber, the present day owners of Fidelity Sportswear, have been involved with the company since their youth. Their father, Edward Webber, was an original partner in the American outerwear company and worked with his sons in the factory in their teenage years. The brothers have maintained a hands-on approach to the family business and remain active in all areas of the company. To this day, all manufacturing takes place in Boston under one roof with the hands-on supervision of brothers, Gerald & Stewart Webber.”

Just look at how awesome their latest lookbook is!

The way I see it, there are coats of worse quality out there going for the same price (or for more), one by Fidelity will last you a very long time. It is worth the investment.

PS. I know it’s been a little quiet over here, I’m working on some Halloween costume posts that will be coming soon!
