Oh November…

Last night Kev and I had a relaxing night of dinner at the Mandarin followed by some quality time with Monday night’s TV lineup.  It was delightfully relaxing.  That being said, I missed participating in Halloween.  We didn’t go to any costume parties this year, nor did we hand out candy to trick-or-treaters (the apartment building has rules against children trick-or-treating).  Fortunately the staff at the Mandarin lifted my spirits with their subtle costumes.  I say “subtle” because most staff had on a Halloween-y item, or two – devil horns, wings, halos, witches hats, etc.  That is, with the exception of our server, who apparently didn’t get the subtle memo OR is just a serious Halloween enthusiast… He was dressed up in a fully fairy costume with heavy clown makeup.

Sometimes if I am iffy about an outfit, photographing it helps me decide if it’s a keeper (or whether it needs modifications).  This is my first sequined skirt, so I wanted to try out a few looks prior to actually wearing it out on the town.  This is look #1.  I give it a thumbs up 🙂
