Witchy Wednesday: Low Key Halloween Outfit #4

When I was a little kid I was in the Wizard of Oz.  I wasn’t Dorothy or even the Wicked Witch as I may have hoped… I was a flying monkey… and a talking apple tree.  I made the best of it as one would do- and together with the help of my talented mother- created the coolest apple tree costume ever.  That costume may or may not have been the star of the show… Years later- I was devastated to discover that I had not landed the role of Lady Macbeth in my High School play- but had been cast instead as a witch.  However- the Director put me in charge of creating costumes for the entire coven of witches so, one of the moms and I created these amazing individualized yet coordinated costumes with dyed moss green cheesecloth and torn dark green fabric.  I was also able to choreograph the entire ritual where we create our witches brew- and I think that is when I first learned- that character acting can truly be an incredible joy…

So with all this interesting witch history in my past… when I saw this black dress from the nineties while picking out my selections for last week’s Style with a Purpose event at Goodwill–  it was love at first sight.  I knew that this was the low key Witch dress of my freaking dreams and to make the whole thing even better-  that very same day I found this amazing purple topped and black feather embellished hat- thus creating the worlds most perfect low-key witch outfit. I lucked out even further when I arrived at the event and discovered that they had curated a bunch of really fantastic sun, moon and stars jewelry- so I snagged these amazing clip on earrings for $4 (as well as some other gems) and this incredible tie on necklace for $7.

Many of you already know that unless otherwise listed- all of the photos on 365 days of thrift are self portraits- so I had some fun on my insta-stories going behind the scenes of these photos with you all.  I encourage you to follow along on Instagram- for more day to day behind the scenes- and certainly stay tuned for a more extensive self portrait blog.  I’d love to know what questions you all have regarding doing your own self portraits-  so let me know in the comment section!

Love and Thrift!
