We’re such rebels. Haha.

Whether the Rockingham house is haunted has yet to be proven, by me at least. However, as far as potentially haunted locations in Princeton go, the final wartime headquarters for General George Washington could possibly have some spirits lingering about, right?

OK, admittedly I have been binge watching entirely too many episodes of American Horror Story and really wanted a spooky location to take photos of my super cool skull T-shirt. So, if you guys can all just let me believe that George Washington’s old house is haunted/spooky, I’d greatly appreciate it. Haha. Seriously, though, the only thing I could think about while I was peeking in the windows and my husband was taking photographs of me, was the first episode of the 2nd season of American Horror Story. Thankfully, though, Bloody Face did not come crashing through the windows. Haha. (Are there any other American Horror Story fans out there that know what I’m talking about?)

But anyways, what sparked this whole spooky adventure was my new T-shirt! Rachel from my Reader Reviews of #ifchic24 post was kind enough to send me some goodies from her Etsy shop, McKinney Wares! She actually made my skull T-Shirt, which has the skull face on the front and the back of the shirt. I love that it’s purple, too! Purple is my favorite color, and if I can be in the Halloween spirit and still have an excuse to wear purple lipstick – what could be better?

Skull bracelet

Rachel also sent me this incredibly detailed skull bracelet to match! How cool is that? I love that it ties, and I can adjust the size. I have weirdly small wrists and love wearing bracelets, but bracelets tend to never fit me. This one, though, fits perfectly! And I love that it’s spooky, but the ribbon still gives it a cute look.

    Do you own any Retrolicious/Folter dresses?? I feel like you would ROCK them! Great look, and I love that picture of you sitting on the fence!! XO

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      I do not! I will have to check them out! Thank you so much, Lauren! 🙂

  2. The shirt is really cool with the tie-dye effect! And the skirt is so pretty! Looks better on you than it does the model on ModCloth.
    I have never watched American Horror Story, and I don’t think I ever will. I scare ridiculously easily. Just anything horror-related is a no-no in my book! haha My mum is a big fan of the show though… She’s never scared of anything. Didn’t inherit that… haha
    You look awesome, albeit a bit spooky! 😀
    Much love

      Oh my goodness that is such a nice compliment, Mona! You are always so sweet! 🙂 Thank you! And oh my gosh, I have a pretty strong stomach, but even I have a hard time with American Horror Story. Haha. DON’T watch it if you scare easy lol.

  3. moxandsocks says:

    That shirt is so cool! I love that it was made for you, too 🙂 As for spooky things, well, I’ve never seen American Horror Story, but I love reading ghost stories and listening to paranormal podcasts around this time of year. And I love swapping ghost stories with my friends and family–including some true ones!!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you, Devinne! Oooh those all sound like fantastic ways to get in the Halloween spirit! I would love to hear some of the ghost stories (especially the real ones)! My family likes to do this too, and they also have a few true ones. 🙂

  4. What a cute t-shirt! I love it! I especially like that I didn’t notice it was spooky right away…

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you, Mel! At first glance it doesn’t look spooky, I agree. 🙂

  5. Lee (@leethrifts) says:

    Love this outfit!!! I adore that bracelet too – so cute! I’ve never seen American Horror Story but I definitely need to! I haven’t really been getting into the halloween spirit but this post made me want to!


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Lee! And as for American Horror Story, haha, just a warning…it’s pretty awful and sick, I honestly have no idea why I watch it. It’s so twisted, haha. But I can’t stop watching! Especially at this time of year. 😉

    This is such a spooktacular post:) These burgundy tights are so fabulous and I really like this Etsy bracelet. I like stretch bracelets for the same reason. I can’t wait to see Lady Gaga in American Horror Story!!! I love Lady Gaga:)


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw thank you, Joanna! This bracelet is seriously the best. 🙂 Oooh Lady Gaga is going to be so awesome in American Horror Story! I love her too! (I have a lot of episodes to get caught up on first, though. Haha.)

  7. Amanda Brezovsky says:

    The purple lipstick look great on you and I love how the purple tights really tie this all together. The bracelt is so cute! Great detail and love that its a ribbon. I have such small wrists too and always have trouble with bracelets.


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Amanda! I love the bracelet! And I’m so excited that it’s finally tights weather again! I forgot how much they can bring an outfit together. 🙂
