2020 Spooky & Cozy Halloween Sleepwear Picks

We’ve made it to October so you know what that means, spooky season is officially upon us!When it comes to holiday loungewear and/or pajamas I’ve noticed that it is more popular to buy specifically for the winter holidays like Christmas. Yet as most of us are spending more time at home and traditional Halloween festivities are not really an option, I figured that this may be the year that we look for more cozy spooky-wear to wear at home. So I searched the internet for some and compiled this list for anyone looking for something cute, cozy and spooky to wear while watching their favorite Halloween films on tv for the  31 Nights of Halloween. I also made sure to only include items less than $40 on this list.  Happy shopping!

Old Navy

While not plus these unisex designs from Old Navy should still fit up to a size 3X as mens sizes tend to run much bigger compared to women’s. I particularly like the bat design in the middle and can totally see myself wearing that for a zoom call or Netflix Watch Party with my friends because who doesn’t like a good pun? Hahaha.

That Autumn Feeling

Autumn is hands down my favorite season. The temperatures finally get cold enough to wear a sweater while enjoying a huge cup of tea with a good book,  pumpkin, apple and cinnamon flavors reign supreme once more and I finally get to layer on scarves and jackets that make up my massive collection. Also darker style aesthetics suddenly become more mainstream making it easier to stock up on accessories and new clothes. Yes, we may all still be in quarantine but fall fashion is top of mind for me at the moment, even if it is still too warm for me to start layering.

Yet my “season transition style” this year has been inspired by black’s more colorful cousin, plum purple. This is an Autumn color that doesn’t seem to be as popular as harvest orange, wine red, or mustard yellow, yet I’ve been obsessed with it for years even though I don’t own much of anything in it other than some lipstick. So you can imagine how fast I pounced on this Torrid plaid skirt once I saw it on their site. Continue reading

About Moths and Roses (Let’s Talk About Age and Style)

I’m 29, turning 30 in May. Honestly, I’ve only just gotten used to being “so young with so much responsibility” and the idea that I am getting to the age in which most people have themselves more established is horrifying considering the fact that I’m still so far away from where I expected to be at this point. Added to that, I can’t help but notice that my style doesn’t exactly read as “responsible adult” or “age appropriate” at all times.  I mean, what is a 30 year old even supposed to look like?

A Weekend in Witch City

I can finally cross something off my bucket list because I got to Salem, MA over the Columbus Day Weekend.  The only downside was that a family emergency came up so we were only able to stay one night instead of the original 3 days of sight-seeing, museum hopping and some light shopping I had planned, however, we still managed to cram as much as we could into the few hours that we had.

This is a trip that I’ve been wanting to do for a while and I am so happy that I even managed to go so during Halloween (aka the entire month of October), all the while looking my “bruja(witch)-best” in pieces from Torrid.  Here are some highlights from the trip. Sure, the (official) spooky season may be coming to an end but there’s no time limit on travel and fashion inspo, right?

theCURVYcon 2019 Recap

This post is super late but hopefully worth the wait. My original plan was to edit a video of clips I took at theCURVYcon this year instead of a written post but my computer had other ideas so here we are, haha. That said, I’ve got to say that Cece and Chastity weren’t kidding when they said that the theme for the 5th annual theCURVYcon was homecoming. From the decorations, the themed after party to the warm reunions we all had with other curvy ladies that traveled for this major fashion event. Continue reading
