Spooky decorations are starting to go up and there is a sightly hue of burnt orange around. At m-use, we are big fans of Halloween, we are still big kids at heart. For me it's all about witches hats, broom sticks and pumpkins. When my kiddies were smallies I had a pumpkin suit with a little pumpkin stalk hat that they all wore with green tights, they were as cute as hell! This year they have changed their minds a few times. It will be interesting to see what they decide and what creatures will be hitting the streets. Let the fun and games of dressing up and decorating begin!
For this weeks blog I have pulled some pleasing warm autumnal colours together in our new range of sweaters, bags, wallets, and home accessories to compliment each look.
Easy wear with one of our cashmere and wool sweaters. This particular sweater is the right shade of orange. Cosy and chic it will keep you warm on the sugar trail going from house to house. Pop on a snood for extra warmth. I have paired this sweater with the double star mixed metal charm necklace and studs which are available in gold or silver depending on your preference.
Moon & Stars
This cosy knit in charcoal grey is detailed with an understated orange star design on the sleeve and is perfect to wear with black denims, while watching the fire works under the moon and the stars. We have paired this long line antique gold star and moon pendant with the half moon hoop earrings. Carrying the burnt orange colour from the sleeve through to the bag in 100% leather.
Cosy Knitted Stars
Another option of the charcoal grey and burnt orange is the star collar detail around the neckline. This adds a lovely 'pop' of colour and requires very little accessories just adding an emerald cut black drop earring and a mix of bangles on the wrist. Our super popular wallets will finish your look. Hermès inspired design and colour is perfect for holding your mobile, coins, cards and notes.
Cashmere, Silk & Rosegold
Rich tones and fabrics will have you well turned out for any occasion. Our handy cashmere blended ponchos are a perfect staple piece for your wardrobe. Pull it on over a long sleeve top and jeans and with a few finishing pieces you are dressed for anything. Our 100% silk neckerchiefs tied around your neck or bag adds a pop of colour. We have paired back on the accessories with an antique gold necklace, bracelet and earrings all themed with a heart design. These pieces are perfect for layering or as stand alone pieces. We have added the quintessential tote bag which comes with a cross body bag inside. Perfect for over the mid-term on days out or getting ahead with your Christmas shopping.
Little House of Horrors
Decorating for Halloween doesn't need to be a scary thought. A few pumpkins, pine cones, flowers and candles with a little bit of thought will have your house on trend for the 31st. Lighting a few candles and craving a few pumpkins will get you in the spirit (lol)!
No matter how nice you or your house look, kids will not care so don't forget to stock up on all the sugary junk (it ghouls me)! Last year, I bought tubs of Cadbury's chocolates to hand out but I was eating on a ratio basis, every one I gave out I ate one myself. Not good! This year I have bought boxes of bagged jellies as I'm not a fan of jellies and so I will have no problems handing them out!
Have a fantastic 31st and stay safe! Best witches!
