On Halloween I dressed as a Bela Lugosi style Dracula, complete with cape and slicked back hair. Part of my costume was a velvet choker with a metal cross charm attached, which I wore with a white shirt and cost me £1 from a "pound" store, full of cheap and cheerful Halloween bits and bobs. So, unsurprisingly, I never thought that I would end up wearing said piece of costume again as a regular accessory. But, when I spotted it still lying in my bedroom last week, I had overwhelming urge to wear it again and so this outfit came about!

The shirt is the boyf's from F21 men's section, and I thought the casual, checked design would be a perfect antidote to the dramatic, gothy look of the velvet and the cross attached!

I hope everyone has a lovely Monday & subsequent week!
