Halloween Lunch



Hey people! Happy Bonfire Night folks! Well technically, that isn’t till later in the day but hey ho….

Anyway, so last weekend, I went out for lunch with some kinda old definitely-semi-friends and we had a grand old time catching up on what we’ve all been up to. Actually, I say catching up but it was more like showing off. By the end of it, I was kinda exhausted because it felt like I had been in a strenuous competition to see who had done the most exciting stuff or achieved the most since we last saw each other. That is one lunch date I’m not gonna be rushing into again... lol!

So after the lunch date, I figured I’d indulge in some Halloween shopping. I went hunting for inspiration for my costume. I’m so last minute with these things and so I was going to go with the first thing I found. Last minute and lazy. Its Halloween for goodness sakes! Its not like you’re supposed to take it too seriously. I promise to get better with the shopping at Christmas!

Anyway, so I finally found a fancy dress shop (Ting-Ting-Ting Jackpot!!! I could get all I needed from one place instead of having to trawl through the whole of Westfield for different items). So I got some face-paint, a snow white costume and some contact lenses (I decided to go as an undead-yet-dead snow white – don’t judge, I know what a rubbish costume this seems like in theory but in my head, this would be an absolutely genius idea once all put together – after a vigorous backcombing of my hair of course!) Somewhere in between this:

And this:


Anyway, shopping done! Time to go home, chill out and then get ready for the party. On my way back, I noticed quite a few admiring stares from people and I was thinking, “Damn, my military wrap dress and hooker heels were really paying off” (all 6 inches of them! Okay, they’re not really hooker heels but that’s what I like to refer to them as). I pretended not to notice and yet was showing off for my admirers. I even put on my sunglasses so I could check out the people who were checking me out without them noticing that I was checking them out. (Oh please!!! LOL! Don’t judge me - I’m sure we’ve all checked out people behind our sunglasses, perfectly pleased that they couldn’t see that we were checking them out!)

Needless to say, by the time I got home, I was on a high – “Damn, I’m hot!” I was thinking…. Till I caught a reflection of myself in my sunglasses as I was taking them off. Turns out I had some face-paint smudged on my face the entire time (dear goodness, I really really REALLY hope it was face-paint!)… OH THE HORROR! Oh the shame….*shakes head* Fingers crossed people may have thought that I was dressed up early for Halloween? One can only hope! Haha! *shakes head*

I refer to my 7" heels as my hooker heels. Any time I wear high heels over 3" I've noticed people will naturally stare at me. Probably is just the clacking sound they make.

I had a sunglasses incident in Palm Springs one Spring Break. I thought I was all hot in my bikini lounging around the pool, sunglasses on. I'm so incredibly blonde that I didn't notice the LIGHT difference between one eye and the other. It wasn't until some friends joined me at the pool when their hangovers wore off that I realized what had happened. "Nice sunglasses, Jenn" - and I thought they were just being snobby about my knock-offs (I refuse to spend more than $15 on a pair of them because I lose them and have to buy new ones almost weekly)...No one actually came out and said what was wrong with them. "Shut up, they were cheap." "Yeah, I bet. They must have been charging you for one lens." Oh boy. What an ass. I think with it being Halloween, you can pass the face paint off. They were probably trying to figure out what your costume was. ;-) But the half sunglasses? I have never lived that down...

Hi,

Thank your lucky stars you didn't know at the time, and reality hit when alone! :) But hey, one often sees weird make-up or bad spray tan jobs resulting in tiger-stripes. ;)

you are so funny Lola. I love readiNg your posts

Such a fun post. I am sure all of us have done fun things. High heels is a different kind of pain. a pain that you do not feel until you are old and your spine begins to give in. I think who we call the Joneses may come in the catagory of "semi frriends."

I can sympathise with your competitive lunch - I hate affairs like that (mostly because I NEVER come out on top - LOL!)
Hope you enjoyed your Halloween party - and then Bonfire Night, of course;-)

I cannot even imagine walking in something taller than a 4" heel! good for you! and stay away from the competitive lunch dates. not fun.

Ouch!!! Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! Yeah, we've all had these moments!! Love the costume!!

What...no pictures for us? :-)) If it's any consolation, the last time I wore heels I sort of teetered over to one side and fell off the edge of the pavement. I am now famous as the only person around who can fall off a sidewalk. (The fact that I had a gorgeous dress on has, of course, been forgotten.)

LOL at the facepaint! Please put up a picture of your costume :D
