Tis’ the season to dress up and have fun!
Two weeks ago, I hosted a little Halloween get-together with some of my fellow blogger friends in New York — special thanks to Mexican restaurant Toro Loco for hosting us that afternoon!
The theme was “Disney Villains” and I dressed up as Cruella de Vil from The Hundred and One Dalmatians. It was so much fun putting my look together, mostly because I’ve never really worn a wig before and this was my first time! I found the black and white wig and a cigarette holder from Amazon and those two items pulled the whole look together! The rest was easy, just a black dress, a red fur jacket, some red lipstick, red gloves, and ta-da!
I had a lot of fun with the girls! It was so nice to really spend time with everyone. Those who attended the gathering included Lisa from @stylevoila, who dressed up as my other half (i.e. a dalmatian, ha!), Hajra from @hajra_aaa, who dressed up as Mother Gothel, Mary from @layersofchic_, who dressed up as Minnie (obviously not a villain, but at least a Disney character), Selma from @laselmastyle, who dressed up as Poison Ivy, and Krity from @krity_s, who dressed up as Ursula. Everyone’s costume was so on point!
Located on Stone Street, Toro Loco is a Mexican restaurant inspired by the vibrant taquerias of Mexico City. The eatery has two levels and we took over a corner near the bar and windows. The interior features the Day of the Dead-themed designs, which fit perfectly with Halloween; it was the perfect spot for us to show up in our costumes!
