Happy Halloween!!!

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!!
To answer your questions about Poland and Halloween: no, Poland does not do anything Halloween related. A couple of the restaurants in town had a few pumpkins out and offered 'Halloween' special menus, but I didn't see any Halloween parties, etc. One of the Embassy compounds had a special trick or treating for the American kids. The American households decorated and let the kids come around for candy.
I decided to impose myself upon a nice family so I could dress up and hand out candy. I got pictures of all the costumes I made this year, including this great snap shot of Nadia and I!
I didn't make the black shawl I'm's actually a cute black cape that I got to wear for fall. When I pair it with a modern boot cut jean and leather boots, it's actually very modern and chic. But it turned into the perfect civil war paletot when paired with my day dress.

Happy Halloween!

I'm glad you were able to do something fun for Halloween.

Many of you don't know this, but if Melissa doesn't do something fun for Halloween, she spontaneously combusts.

Hmmmm ... I thought if Melissa doesn't do something fun for Halloween she makes everyone costumes and then forces them to wear them for arbitrary holidays like "Columbus day". I was so wrong.

All of the costumes are fabulous! The civil war dress is just beathtaking, although I have to say I think my favorite is the little fairy outfit. Where can I get a skirt like that?!?

Could that fairly look any cuter? I've been lurkng again, but I wanted to say that I love your day dress - totally drool worthy.
