Here in Croatia we usually don’t celebrate Halloween because we have our own masquerade parties in February, but if we have excuse to dress up in costumes two time in one year – why not 😉 ?
The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. They believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.
Irish immigrants fleeing Ireland’s potato famine of 1846, helped to popularize the celebration of Halloween in USA. Taking from Irish and English traditions, Americans began to dress up in costumes and go house to house asking for food or money, a practice that eventually became today’s “trick-or-treat” tradition.
I’m a big fan of 40s and 50s B (B standing for a low budget) horror movies, especially of those which are so campy that you and up laughing instead of being scared, but tonight we plan to spend the evening watching our favorite B Horror flick made in 70s- Rocky Horror Picture Show, favorite midnight movie in USA for last 40 years.

In today’s post, besides my outfit of course 😉 , I wanna show you my latest little project! I’ve been sewing bags for a full year now, and the new skill I’ve learned was the perfect move for the handbag lover as myself.
I often end up with back pain form wearing my classical, always full, shoulders bags and I found it hard to find that one perfect backpack. Because of that I decided to make it myself! This backpack can be rearranged, and transformed to shoulder bag and messenger bag – who would have thought I would become practical in my 30s 🙂 ?!
Diamonds themed dress, big statement necklace, my favorite Catwoman and I’m ready to go !
