It's that Spooktacular Time of Year....

Back to Ghoul!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I always look forward to finding or creating just the right costume to wear... usually I'm inspired by some random thing and then create my costume around it.

80's Prom Queen and her date, The Corpse Bride
Last year, while resale shopping myself, I found this absolutely gaudy turquoise lamĂ© dress that reminded me of my high school years, and possibly what I might have worn (really?) to my Prom... So, for $9 and a borrowed tiara, that's what I decided to be, an 80's Prom Queen! Several years prior, I  bought a cheap wedding gown, trashed it up and added some ribs (from a skeleton costume) to become The Corpse Bride... My younger daughter Olivia asked me to fit the costume to her and, voilĂ , I had my date!

This year, I am inspired by my (new) hair. And fake tattoos. Whomever, or whatever, shall I be? Well, you'll have to pop down to the shop on Halloween day to see for yourself, or like us on Facebook, or follow us on Instagram to see the photos (especially to see what's New in the Shop), that is if you haven't already!

Of course, not every one is the creative type, or knows how to sew, and so I say head on down to the shop and see what's in store for your kids (and maybe some grown up inspiration?). At GROVE STREET kids, we have a reputation for having some of the best selection around...
