October Originals: 3 LT-Inspired Pumpkin DIY’s You Have to Try

Fall is our favorite season here at London Times, probably because there are so many excuses to roll up our sleeves and try a bunch of festive DIY projects. We’ve gotten so into the (savvy) holiday spirit, that for the entire month, we’ll be introducing you to different ways to get crafty inspired by none other than our very own dresses.

Pumpkins were our first matter of business, so read below to learn how to paint not one, not two, but three gorgeous renditions that are sure to make a statement in the neighborhood.

Trick-Or-Chic with LT: Masquerade Madness

As tempting as purchasing a one-time wear, polyester Halloween costume (yet again) sounds, we think we’re going to pass this year. Being the savvy stylistas that we are at London Times, finding a look that can be worn on the 31st and beyond is a challenge we’re willing to take on. Our first trick-or-chic piece involves turning the Dot Mesh Dress (a classic LBD that can practically be donned 365 days a year) into a disguise fit for a modern-day masquerader:

The great thing about this costume is that it takes virtually no time to put together and basically everything can be worn again. Since the black dress is nice and simple, you can really go all-out  with those DIY skills on the mask – try glitter, plumes, rhinestones, the works! Give it a modern look with bold, metallic accessories like a brocade blazer (which, by the way is a cool statement piece for fall), a bejewled necklace and shiny shoes.

And the Winner of The LT Savvy Style Challenge Is…
