Hard Rock Halloween…

Halloween outfit over 40

Happy Halloween!

I am joining the Share-in-Style Halloween party today, and dressed accordingly…

40+ hard rock style

Well, sort of… less witches and vampires, more Hard Rock and Heavy Metal.

Halloween accessories over 40

scarf: Alexander McQueen / vintage evening bag / necklace: Uno de 50 / ring: Femme d’Esprit, Paris

My dear husband kept telling me to pose more convincingly, to look scary and fierce, a bit bitchy (his words, uttered with love), and I was happy to oblige… But you won’t see the bitchiest pics. Why? Well, first of all, he liked them way too much… and second, I’m trying so hard to hide my true (bitchy) nature by only posting pics where I look halfway decent… Yes, I’m vain. But I think most bloggers would refrain from documenting their fat days and bad hair days… So, as I have a bad hair day every day, I insist that the rest of me must look spectacular…

jacket: Zara (old) / top: Banana Republic / necklaces: L.K.Bennet, Uno de50 / sunglasses: Tom Ford

Talking of hair… I don’t know if you can see it in these photos, but this is my hair when it hasn’t been ‘done’, i.e. I haven’t tried to tame the natural curls. And now if you tell me that you can’t really see a difference, I’ll be gutted…

    ohh, very cool scarf and handbag! I think you don't need to look 'scary' or anything to have a wicked Halloween outfit. :)

      Thanks! Well, as Halloween is an American holiday, I think we non-Americans can interpret it with some creative freedom.

      Thanks, Jasmine. I think accessories make the look, at least that seems to be the case for me.

    This is so cool. I really love the bag…and the scarf. I delete half of my photos because I look like a bitch. I must really hate my tripod. bisousSuzanne

    Tiina , you really do wear this look well. As usual your stunning acessories make your whole look.Somehow, I can`t visualise you as bitchy, I`m sure we all choose to post our best shots, I know I do.

      Oh, my hair is frizzy, whatever the weather. There are just bad hair days, and then there are really bad hair days…
