Spooky Good Style: Halloween Outfits!

My love for Halloween and clothes both have something scary in common. I’m obsessed with both! I have noticed that my Halloween shirt collection is starting to get a bit out of control, but it is OK to wear these tops year-round, am I right?!

I have so much fun putting together different Halloween theme styles and looks (I blame my Assistant Manager days back at Maurice’s when I clothed mannequins each week) so I wanted to share some of my looks with you!

Perhaps you’re looking for something to wear to work or to the office this Halloween that isn’t necessarily a full on costume. These looks are perfect for that occasion and every day this month!

A Voyage to Spirit Halloween

Ahoy, spooky shoppers! The telltale sign that Halloween season has officially arrived at the harbor is when Spirit Halloween stores officially open!

Nothing is creepier than visiting the building where an abandoned Toys”R”Us or Sears retailer once thrived to find that they have been usurped by demonic animatronic creatures, walls of masks and costumes, and orange and black everything.

I made it a point to visit the first Spirit Halloween of the season on Friday, Aug. 9 (only ONE day after it just opened) on 71st Street in Tulsa, OK.

I always get a kick out of their displays and was giddy with Halloween glee to find that this location was well stocked and all of their frightening displays were working without a hitch. Keep reading to see some of the sights you can expect at Spirit Halloween stores in 2019!

A trip to the 2019 Texas Haunters Convention

This weekend has been SPOOKTACULAR. I made it out to the inaugural Texas Haunters Convention in Mesquite, TX.  I do not have much history related to convention attendance, so I’m never quite sure what to expect when I arrive at these events. It’s good to go into something with a sense of wonder instead of expecting too much or too little.

The convention is a cash and carry style two day Halloween convention geared towards haunt owners, industry professionals, home haunters, families, trick-or-treaters, and Halloween lovers (I fall into the latter category)! The event is open to the public with the purchase of a ticket.  There are also live demos, classes and make-and-takes sessions that are available to attendees for an additional fee.

I had so much fun seeing all of the AMAZING and talented crafters, creators, and haunters at this event.  The event had over 70 booths consisting of vendors, haunters, guests, and more.

What made this event even more enjoyable was spending it with my Halloween friends! I FINALLY got to meet my inspiration behind starting my very own blog, the queen of Halloween herself, and in my opinion a total internet Halloween celeb – Miranda, the ghoul behind Spooky Little Halloween!

Halloween Shopping at Tuesday Morning

The hunt for Halloween this summer continues – and as you might have noticed, your neighborhood Tuesday Morning store is just now filling its shelves with spooky delights! I love how each store that is providing Halloween fans with Halloween shopping in July all have their own “theme” or “aesthetic.”

The theme so far at Tuesday Morning is flashy, fanciful and fun! Plus, they have lots of little miniatures that would make any Halloween village display a frightful destination.

Keep on scrolling to see what I found in stock at my local Tuesday Morning last weekend!

Halloween Shopping at Old Time Pottery

One of my favorite stores to shop for Halloween at is Old Time Pottery!!! Unfortunately, this retailer is only found in 11 states and mostly in the mid-west region of the U.S. If you have one near you – now’s the time to check them out. What I love most about OTP, is their vast selection of home decor at incredibly affordable prices. That helps to make shopping for Halloween guilt-free!

The icing on top, is that they begin stocking the shelves with spook as soon as the Fourth of July is over! Retailers that cater to Halloween lovers in the summer months are the best kind of stores! Keep on scrolling if you’d like to virtually shop the shelves of my Tulsa, OK location.

Joann Fabric Halloween Sneak Peek

I’m starting to see more Halloween in home decor and craft stores – and it’s only the beginning of July! I am okay with an early Halloween shopping season…if we keep moving up Christmas shopping earlier each year, it’s only fair that Halloween gets the same treatment. Right!?

I decided to stop into my local Joann Fabric and Crafts store to see what spooky delights await for me…I’ve seen some images and videos floating around where folks have already spotted some home decor in store, but my location was still trying purge the last of their Christmas decor. They need to sell it faster to make room for Halloween!

I thought I’d treat you to some sneak peaks at some of the gorgeous, whimsical and vintage inspired Halloween fabric I did see in store already! I hope this photo dump will help your mind churn up some ideas on what you might create this fall!

Spooky Good Style: New Spooky Tees for Summer

It’s not summerween without some spooky summer tees! I wanted to share some of my favorite tees I have purchased this season from some of my favorite designers out there on the world wide web!

Year-round-Halloweenheads like myself wear our spooky swag all the time, and there are plenty of cute and fun ways to dress up these haunting tees for the summertime.

This “Hollow Inside” tee I’m wearing above I got from Doodle by MegMeghan Wallace is fellow Oklahoman and designer who has many Halloween-themed original designs on her Society6 and Redbubble shop and also an array of cute, whimsical patterns, cacti and Gilmore Girls inspired artwork.
