Wishful Wednesday-Spooky edition

Ooooooo!  It's almost October and I've got Halloween fever!  This past weekend was my Halloween shoot with Renee Ricket Photography.  We had a glorious day at historic Forest Home Cemetery in Greenville setting up fun backdrops, creating spooky photos and making memories!  I love Forest Home Cemetery because it's a beautiful 32 acre garden cemetery with hills, trees and bordered by three lakes.  There are elaborate monuments and glorious mausoleums at every turn, our fall and Halloween shoot could not have had a more perfect setting.  Thank you to Friends of Forest Home Cemetery for welcoming us,  all of their hard work and dedication to restoring Forest Home to it's former glory!  Visit the Friends of Forest Home Cemetery Facebook page for historic tidbits and gorgeous photos or to make a donation.  Here is a sneak Peak!!

This weeks Wishful Wednesday is fun, fabulous and spooky style with a Halloween theme.  Most of the items can be mixed and matched for tons of fun combos but these are my favorite pieces for adding fall flair!

1.  Pinup Girl Clothing Pinup Couture Peasant Top in Black is a must have.  A basic in every pinup wardrobe.  It's great with pants, skirts and can be warmed up in chilly days with a cute cardigan.

2.  Pinup Girl Clothing Deadly Dames Darling Dames Skirt in Monster.  This lovely gathered skirt, fitted waistband, and flirty flair, offers a shorter hemline and hidden side pockets and comes in the scary cool Micheline Pitt designed Monster Print!  A must have for monster babes!

3. Atomic Mingo Creature From the Black Lagoon Brooch.  I LOVE vintage horror movies and this Creature From the Black Lagoon brooch is kitschy, creepy and cute!

4. Katrina Parker Frocks Scaredy Cats Skirt
Scaredy Cats is a playful, gathered skirt that falls just below the knee with a two inch waistband.  This skirt has a purple background with the most adorable print of kitties having comical adventures in a haunted house.  The material for this skirt is extremely limited, so add this creepy creation to your closet quick!

5. Heidi and Gretel Pumpkin Pot Brooch.  Obe of the most iconic images of Halloween, the pumpkin shaped candy pot is something most of us has owned in our lives and this brooch is a fabulous way to wear a piece of childhood nostagia!

6. Summer Blue Jewelry Stray Cat Strut Brooch.  A cool Bakelite (Fakelite) style Halloween cat brooch in classic black with white detail and big colored eyes for a truly vintage feel! Molded from an old Halloween cat piece from the 60's. The perfect finishing touch to any spooky, Gothic, or every day is Halloween vintage-inspired outfit.

7. Folter Retrolicious Seasons Dress.  This beautiful autumn landscape print dress transports me to my favorite spots in the intoxicating autumn that we enjoy here in Michigan. A fitted bodice with a full skirt, a V-plunge back and cap sleeves with cut out detail.
Colorful, whimsical and stunning!!

8.  Buttonsy "Four Seasons" Necklace - Autumn.  Autumn's russet leaves are tumbling down, ready to be kicked through and enjoyed.  Crisp days, apple cider, pumpkins and falling leaves this necklace evokes every happy fall memory!

9. Voodoo Vixen Katnis Dress.  It's raining cats...and CATS! This gorgeous skater style dress is adorable with it's quirky black cat and umbrella print, scalloped neckline and bright green color.  Katnis is cute and kooky for fall and Halloween fashion fun.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook for behind the scenes, outfit of the day posts and tons more fun!!  Tomorrow I'm shooting at the apple orchard so stay tuned for more fantastic fall photos!
