For A Happy Hollywood Halloween

Not that I have an actual Halloween party to attend, but if I did get an invite from, say, an imaginary friend or two, I think I know what — or who — I’d want to dress up as:

Mary Kate black and gray

I want that shirt.

That, as most people of my generation know, is one half of the Olsen twins, Mary Kate. She, who is the apparent style icon for those who want to go for the boho-grunge-rockstar-chic look, is who I want to be for Halloween. Or maybe forever. @_@

I love the black, the gray, the plaid/checked button-downs (Somebody lead me to a store that has non-ridiculously expensive shirts like that PLEASE?), and the general Gorgeous Mess feel. The “I just got out of bed and didn’t have time to brush my hair but I’m fabulous so fuck you I’ll wear what I want to wear” look is the perfect excuse to actually get out of bed and wear the comfiest clothes evarrr while looking fabulous and not have to worry about your hair. It’s so me. (I like excuses.)

Note: Not brushing one’s hair does not necessarily mean one does not shower. Just thought to make that clear kthx.

Also, I love Starbucks.

We’re a match made in heaven, or rather, in Halloween.

Methinks it’s too close to what I would wear in “real life” to actually be a costume… But I just couldn’t stomach the idea of wearing something pink, puffy and filled with fluff. Sorry to disappoint the hardcore Halloween enthusiasts, if any still exist in my age group.

Now because I keep an open mind, I refused to restrict my options. I was considering Amy Winehouse, too. A Cokehead, I know I’m not. But in the spirit of the occasion, I would be willing to dress up like one:


See? How hard can it be? A tank top, frayed jeans, generally tacky appearance and HUGE HAIR. She’s a little 2007, but it’s definitely a look! And…

hot chick

Yea– NO. Mary Kate Olsen it is then!



  1. You can hit up thrift stores and Goodwills and find their same clothes. I think you should go for the Amy Winehouse look and add a little flour around your nose.

  2. It’s easy to pull off Amy Winehouse if you got a good wig… but the teeth, er… no, thanks. I didn’t get the braces for nothing. Haha.

    Now I know who I’ll be for Hollywood Halloween! Miley Cyrus! I’ll have to scout for three cute teenagers and they’ll be the Jonas Bros! Nyahaha.

  3. @alegna: Ooo yeah nice touch on the flour! Hahaha. Or powder. Hm.. *thinks*
    I think the hair would be the most definitive but also the hardest part to pull off. ;p

    @anna o: But didn’tcha know? The Jonas brothers are on Team Demi & Selena! Hahahaha. (OMG Jologs ko talaga.)

  4. I like MK’s fashion. I am also a General Mess and people in my workplace are a little horrified of my staticky hair. Well they don’t know that messy is the new fantabulous.

    When I’m full of “tinga”, I can pull off Amy Winehouse’s style. LOL.

  8. @KC: Yesss. Messy is gorgeous as too clean is boring! :D

    @Underscrisis: … Fine. But I get everything else. ;p

    @Ade: Did I just kill you again? LOL. This is becoming a bad habit.

    @um, 80s costumes: Glad you agree. :)
