HALLOWEEN! My favorite day of the year! As you all know, black cats are the Queens of Halloween!

Naturally, I wanted something beautiful, tasteful, and festive for this most important of holidays. As my usual couturier is already busy with my Christmas and New Year's outfits, I had to resort to alternate sources in Milan. Thankfully, they were able to assemble something in short order after I emailed them the design. What one can do with a bit of gold leaf, tulle, and dainty fingers!

Happy Halloween!
