itty bitty party committee halloween look. valley.


once again cake & valley have partnered with the fabulous duo of the itty bitty party committee for some all hallows eve looks. since halloween falls on a work day we've styled two looks that are office (and happy hour appropriate) but are not specifically classified as costumes. it can be quite the uncomfortable situation when you're the only one at your office who arrives in full on costume. so if you're not into that specific situation, then perhaps you can get some inspiration from us on how to take a few key pieces from your closet that can make a perfect appropriate, spirited, and festive halloween office look!!

yesterday's look was a non-witchy witch outfit while the today's look is a non-boo ghoul get up. so, get scared and prepared for some halloween looks. when we styled these looks we were adamant that each piece we picked be something that we did not buy in a halloween store or costume shop. these two looks are not the only way to dress up for halloween without having to wear a costume but they might just be the most fun. when brainstorming for your look just make sure to be creative and maybe a little scary too.



valley has layered on the white to get the ghouly look for her halloween office attire. pulling off this look is a great time to grab one of your favorite white dresses that you tucked away after labor day, the summer-y the better, you really want it to flow!!! valley's is a light chiffon dress & it even has a little cap that floats behind her as she walks. if you have a white coat or cardi make sure to layer these over the dress too. next grab any skull detailed items you might have, thick opaque black tights, and a blood red ring to top off this scream worthy look.  now valley just needs to float in and out of all the offices, flicker a few lights and she'll be giving all her co-workers the ghostly chills!!

happy halloween-eve.

boo. cake & valley

  4. I love this idea of the non-costume costume... not going overboard but still being festive. I'm always worried that the others in my office won't dress up and I'll look like a fool :D This year I'm just wearing all black with some ears attached to a headband and going as my cat... I figure it will be comfy and not too ridiculously flashy :)
