Garish Gal Does Halloween

IMG_6049_2 IMG_6041_2IMG_6045_2IMG_6051_2 IMG_6055_2 IMG_6037As a Garish Gal, I love the idea of being creative and coming up with a fun Halloween costume.

The older I get, the less I feel like dressing in something funny or overly sexy.

So here are a few fun ways to dress up for Halloween the Garish Gal way.

FYI- All of the props (i.e hats, swords, gold coins) are from the dollar section at Target!

Pirate: I love this look (mainly because this is what I will be wearing!!). The leather skirt really goes well with what a pirate would wear! By adding the pirate accessories, we finish off the look!

Devil: This is a different take to the typical devil. Red is a hard color for me to wear, so by adding the black leather hot shorts and ivory fur vest to the cross back blouse, it creates a different but still sexy devil look. The devil headband is a look finisher!

Army Girl: This is SO cute! The camo blouse, pleather ivory perfect tank, and the black skater skirt is a fun way to be a contemporary army gal! Add an army hat and a killer pair of boots to complete this look!

Ring Leader: This look so reminds me of the Britney Spears song, so of course I am in love! The gold lurex jacquard shorts, perfect tank, ring leader hat, and a pair of heels make for a perfect look!

Frankenstein: Who says Frankenstein can’t be hot? These jogger leather track pants and black fur vest are great way to beat the cold weather for Halloween. Finish the look with the Frankenstein mask & our pretty cream blouse!

Cop: Leather & Handcuffs are the perfect cop combination. This black pleather jacket, black and white blouse, and pleather shorts are an updated cop outfit! Instead of grabbing bracelets, grab handcuffs & a police hat to complete the look!

The great part about all these looks is that you can wear them in your every day wardrobe!

Fall Must Haves: Fur Vests

IMG_5861 IMG_5864IMG_5893

Fur vests are a great way to add some sass to an outfit. I LOVE to wear fur vests, mainly because I am always cold and they are a cool way to keep warm. All of the fur pieces on ShopGarishgal.com are good quality faux fur.

Pictured are two fun ways to wear faux fur.

The first look is a great way to mix textures and prints. The pastel plaid printed blouse brings color to the ivory vest and solid moto pants. I love this look because it is an easy way to be transitional. You can take this look from day to night by adding a pair of heels or booties.

The second look is a fun 70s mod look. The wine pleather shorts are a great way to add a trendy fall color to your look. The cream blouse works as a neutral between the shorts and the fur vest. Black fur vests are great wardrobe staples because they can be worn in various ways. You can pair them with shorts, leggings, denim, or over a dress as a completer piece.

1 Dress 3 Ways

Leather is a huge trend for fall and at Garish Gal we LOVE leather.

As you shop the site, that love will become apparent!

This dress is Zocia. She is a great piece because she is a pleather and ponte mix.

What is Ponte?

Ponte is a thicker, stretchy material that is flattering on all body shapes. It is also super comfy!

Zocia can be worn multiple ways and for multiple occasions. Above we restyle her for three different situations: Casual Day Look, Easy Work Look, and a Girls Night Out Look.

Look 1:

The first look was created solely with accessories. By adding a jacket, black booties, a fun necklace, and a matching purse- You create a casual day look that can be worn on chilly fall days. The accessories create a whole new look for Zocia!

Look 2:

The second look is a great work look. Of course Zocia would look amazing by herself, but by adding a graphic printed scarf we add pattern play that makes the dress a little more interesting. Pairing with a great fall bootie makes the look work ready.

Look 3:

The final look is our revamp of Zocia. By adding a graphic envelope clutch and a sexy pair of heels Zocia instantly becomes edgy and head turning. The light pink hues contrast the edgy with a delicate, feminine touch. A perfect look for going out with the girls or your guy!

Even Better? All of our dresses are under $100!! Pictured above are a few of my favorites!

Ravishing in Red is a great dress for the upcoming holiday season. She is a beaded shift dress, so she looks good on any body type. This is a holiday party must have dress.

Rodella is my absolute favorite dress! She is perfect for any season and any occasion. Wear her to work with a blazer, heels, and a statement necklace. Wear her on a casual fall day with our Edison Cardigan, a cute necklace, and booties. Wear her on a night out by adding heels and a killer necklace. Rodella is a wardrobe staple.

Orange You Glad I Came is the perfect mix of fun and flirty. The ruffles create a pretty feminine look! She is a shift dress as well, so her fit will be flattering to all. She is a great date night dress or perfect for the workplace.

Finally, Perfect Pleat is a great way to transition your maxi love into fall. The long sleeves and high low hem add a fun update to your summer maxis.  You can also dress her up with heels or rock her during the day with a pair of ankle boots. Either way, Perfect Pleat is a perfect match for your fall wardrobe.
