Skeleton (t-shirt) in the cupboardOctober 26, 2016
I love spooky season (yes, me and every other basic white girl on the planet) so there was no way I was going to say no when Henrica contacted me about collaborating. I've borrowed a couple of tops from her Memento Mori collection and I'm going to try and do a handful of outfits ranging from moderately spooky to just everyday clothes. I'd rate this outfit somewhere in between; either "I'm a slightly spooky person off out to a gig" or "I'm not at all spooky attending a Halloween event without costumes." (Do these even exist? Because they really shouldn't).
I found this black faux fur coat discounted at a vintage shop in Pimlico because it was July, and no one buys coats in July. Rather than go full 60's I put on my chunky DMs, lots of jewellery, and a plum lip (wow, so much soft grunge). But let's be honest, it's the top that makes this outfit. Do have a look at Henrica's website because her pieces are incredible (treading the fine line between ready-to-wear and wearable art) and she also has a useful and very detailed page dedicated to clothing care.
If you'd like a Memento Mori top, you need to order by 9am (UK time) on Friday 28th.
On google maps this cemetery has a great review:
