Fashionable reading for your Sunday morning

Can’t get enough Halloween?  The articles that made it to the Links a la Mode might interest you then.  Personally I can’t wait to get my pumpkin and scull decorations down and start focusing on the food haze of Thanksgiving and the shopping frenzy of Christmas.  Actually, I wish there was more time in the fall, it’s always so hectic.  But no one’s talking about that this week.  Maybe next week?

If you’re a personal style blogger A Girl in Boston‘s experience might send shivers down your spine. Cosmolawtian‘s article on the legal impact of color in branding is really interesting, especially if you have a business. If you like vintage clothing check out Dignityzine‘s list of on-line vintage styled retailers. I’ve highlighted these posts in pink because they’re my favorite. Enjoy!

Getting Spooky

Edited by Taylor Davies

As style bloggers, we relish the daily task of getting dressed. It’s kind of our thing, right? Once a year though, everybody gets in on the fun – and then takes it to a whole other level. Of course I’m talking about Halloween. That crazy holiday that causes adults to act like children and children to dress up like adults. As a 20-something, Halloween can be a far cry from the trick-or-treating days of our youth – but one element will always stay with me: we get to pretend to be someone else. Instead of dressing to best express who we really are, we get to dress to appear to be someone completely different.

This week’s Links a la Mode features posts from our community about amazing Halloween costumes and inspiration, DIY projects and even a little life lesson or five from The Nanny named Fran.

    Hi Heather~I was so dismayed at Lissy’s news over at A Girl in Boston. so awful. I did not read the posts on FB. Makes you wonder, though, how many other people out there are just making fun of blogs.

      The article was upsetting, wasn’t it? It hasn’t happened to me yet, but I know it’s just a matter of time. There are lots of people out there who would rather ridicule others than go out and do something great. This is a situation where being a snob about it might be helpful. I think we just have to pity the ridiculers.
