I’m buzzed with excitement! My little sister is getting married and there’s a second baby on the way. I’m going to be a maid of honor and a godmother the very same year. The wedding is only planned for August, but with the October NYC bridal week, I can simply not resist to take a peek at all those beautiful gowns.
It was my boyfriend who once pointed out to me that “There’s no difference between everyday Eef and Eef at the wedding”. With such a huge wardrobe, I guess I’ve never really bothered with buying something new, because I would always have that cute little dress here and there that I only wore once to an event. Well, not this time!
I want something long but simple yet special at the same time. I’ve found my dream dress on Weddington Way. The cut is simple and clean but the pink shade gives it that fairytale feeling. See the whole collection of Weddington Way bridesmaid dresses here.
In order not to make the overall look too Barbie-ish, I’m pairing it with a Swatch watch rather than traditional golden jewelry and a fun pair of earrings from Topshop. The statement pieces would be this ruby red ring from Tous and this “floating” necklace from Etsy. Throw in a pair of pink peonies, a Chanel (or similar small squared) clutch, a Lomography camera and a crazy pair of Charlotte Olympia heels, and voila, your modern bridesmaid is ready to walk the carpet and rock the wedding party.

Come mid-October, rotating storefronts all over New York start selling the same plastic-wrapped sets of plastic wigs, plastic masks, and plastic ultra-short dresses. It’s like the one day a year where girls are allowed to be publicly slutty.
The most interesting part is that Halloween used to be the high holidays of queers. Because you could be out in drag in public, but still invisible, because everyone was in costume.
Now there are sexy bees, sexy pirates, sexy inmates, sexy Dorothy’s, sexy Little Red Riding Hoods and even sexy Willy Wonkas and sexy ghostbusters. It’s masterful!
I’m not going to discuss my outfit (usually rather funny than sexy) so let’s review the best in kids costumes!
BEST BABY HALLOWEEN COSTUME
Every baby looks cute but I could just eat this one
THE EASIEST ONE
Make-up and a wig, that’s all you need!
NOT WITHOUT MY DOG
Because the dog complements the kid’s Halloween outfit.
BEST TODDLER HALLOWEEN COSTUME
Whoever came up with this idea is a genius
BEST ADULTS ADAPTION
The Clockwork Orange Halloween costume is a true classic for adults (been there, done that) and even so much funnier for kids.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
Say no more. The most endearing and original one.

A big round of applause for Tous last week during their Winter backstage party. The brand introduced some updated classics such as pearl necklaces, rosette rings and classic cuffs with a fun and young twist, all right up my alley.
