This Halloween, I Wore A Potato Sack

This Halloween, I figured that there could be nothing more ironic than wearing a potato sack. But, this isn’t any old potato sack because it’s emblazoned with big, bold red and black type!

I hadn’t planned on dressing up this year but that quickly changed as I was wandering through the never-ending maze of booths at an antique show over the weekend with my brother. I spotted this amazing 60s era costume resting on a rack and with a little bartering, I walked away with it for 20 dollars (which might be pricy for a standard-issue potato sack but this one was very, very special!)

In full, the ‘dress’ reads:

Be beautiful in a POTATO SACK
Looks like a sack
Feels like a sack
IS A SACK
Fill with 100 lbs. or more of charm, and save money on new French inspired creations
Guaranteed to loose [sic] shape without ironing
For evening wear, add Mink trimmings

So, there you go. This Halloween, I went all out…wearing a glorious vintage potato sack with DKNY nude fishnets and All Caps Dahlias. I won’t lie…I wanted to belt it and accessorize so badly but I realized that would defeat the purpose! Have a fun and safe Halloween!


Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk Landing Pages for Solestruck.com

In the spirit of Halloween, I thought I’d share a recent set of landing pages I designed for Solestruck. Glitter-covered, heel-less platforms are the perfect finishing touch to all those Lady Gaga costumes that must be floating around, don’t you think?

These ads feature the Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk in Glitter Multi which is already sold out but some of the other colors are still available. Have a Happy Halloween! I wasn’t planning on having a costume this year but then I stumbled upon one this weekend when I least expected it and I’ll be sharing it a little later today.
