Happy Halloween Fat Albert style

Halloween? Really. Who has time to think about trick-or-treating when we've spent the last five days scared to death from Hurricane Sandy? Some of us are still without electricity and internet access. What is scarier than that?

Halloween? Really. Who has time to think about trick-or-treating when we've spent the last five days scared to death from Hurricane Sandy? Some of us are still without electricity and internet access. What is scarier than that? 

I was oficially over all things that go boo in the night until I found this photo floating around Facebook this afternoon. Aren't these the cutest versions of Fat Albert and Cosby Kids ever - (FYI Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids were based on the childhood antics of famous Philadelphian Bill Cosby. The cartoon, that ran through the 1970s, used the junkyards of North Philadelphia as its backdrop.)

If this isn't a Philadelphia-appropriate Halloween costume, I don't know what is.

Happy Halloween Philly!

 

 

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
