"I don't Playboy, I ain't Hugh Hefner..."
Hugh Hefner is dead and I feel a way.
While some might view Hugh's business as a way to exploit and objectify women (so I've heard), I'd bet there's a lot of people who'd like to thank Hugh Hefner for giving women a platform to take control over their bodies and the way they're portrayed, giving them freedom, of sorts. Whether you respect the innovative businessman, lover of women and free spirit that was Hugh Hefner or you find the PlayBoy franchise deplorable, you have to admit, Hef changed the game.
Hugh Hefner’s influence will be even more evident in a few weeks, as many women pay homage to his influence and brand in the quintessential Halloween costume… the PlayBoy bunny.
So, what better way to remember the real-life Casanova than with a sexy, fall date night look? I'm talking robes, sheer, fur, sparkle... come on!
Let's start off with what is probably one of my favorite thrift store finds to-date. This sheer, black duster with fur cuffs screams lady of the mansion. It's actually a few sizes too big, but for $4.99, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to achieve this level of EXTRA.
This level, to be exact.
Nothing says “This is my house” like a simple LBD with a perfect fit. The off-the-shoulder trend is definitely still in for Fall, so this long-sleeved, bodycon style is a great date-night option. When shopping bodycon for the cooler months, it’s always great to go for pieces made of thicker material or double-lined, as these will not only keep you warm, but also help smooth your curves for that coveted curvy shape. Did I mention it was $5?! Cheers to Rainbow, one of my favorite places to shop, and the between-seasons sales!
What's a PlayBoy tribute without some pink, fur and sparkle? Something tells me these bad boys would've been part of the outfit, if Hef was an avid ASOS shopper. I actually snagged this pair at a pop-up closet sale by one of my favorite Instagram bloggers, Melissa. The pink glitter and fur is ultra-girly and ultra-glam, the perfect balance for an all-black look.
