Style- Fruit of the Spooky Tree

I love plums. Biting into their sugar-sweet flesh to be followed by the sharp sour tang of the skin is one of my favorite things about summer. At their peak ripeness they are deep purple-black, maybe frosted soft silver. So I was delighted when plums arrived in the local grocery store's produce section. I had to make a special, simple dessert: fresh plums and strawberries with homemade whipped cream!

Then, inspired by the fruit's deep hue, I coordinated my nails, makeup, and outfit.

Elf black eyeliner and Revlon Va-Va-Violet on lips. OPI's Black Cherry Chutney polish.
Altered Claire's stabbed-heart earrings, self-made bead choker (inspired by Tim Burton in general, Nightmare Before Christmas and Vincent specifically!)

Thrifted Judy Knapp lace vest, Faded Glory printed tank top, Lee Riders shorts, Merona flats.
