Hey Guys and Girls,
Welcome to the Halloween edition of Shop talk.
Halloween originates from the Celtic pagan festival Samhain which traditionally celebrated the end of the harvest season. People would light Bonfires and Dress up in costumes to ward off Ghosts. Christians came along and laid a feast called "All Hallows Eve" over the top of the holiday....which evolved into the name Halloween.
Today as Halloween exists, we still follow the tradition of dressing up and Kids celebrate the feast by binging on lollies.
At ALT, We celebrated Halloween this week by getting in some great new styles from Hell Bunny and Spin Doctor. These styles are perfect for Halloween festivities or if you just love fashion with a dark side :
GRISELDA MINI DRESS By Spin Doctor . Love this Style...Bit of a 70s "Rosemarys Baby" vibe to the style...a floaty dress with flare sleeves and a print of Skulls, Spider webs and Roses...with a cream base colour, beautiful and edgy.
SHADOW OF ZENNOR DRESS By Spin Doctor. A Little Black Dress with a Paisley style print in Grey, black and Purple. When you look at the pattern closely Skeletal Mermaids emerge...Fun and Mysterious! Its available in Sizes from Small to 3XL.
For Men, We have a whole range of S-Ponder Tees with various Skull Prints under and Check out our New Paisley Shirts....this one in Burgundy is fit for Vlad the Impaler.
Come by and Check out our Halloween window too.
Enjoy the Halloween festivities and have a Great Week!
Cheers Sam xx
