Boo - it's Halloween! If you're the kind of person who loves putting a polished twist on this delightfully spooky holiday, you've come to the right place.

To get you in a chic, nighttime mood, this week I'm excited to highlight the many black invitations we offer here at Ceci New York. One of my favorite examples is the black and gold damask invite that New York couple Leslie and Damon chose for their nuptials at the Plaza Hotel. The black spells drama, while the gold damask pattern gives a luxurious vibe. The result? Pure sophistication!

Whether you're throwing or attending a Halloween party this weekend, this issue has tons of ideas to get you started. Check out my fantasy version of the kind of scary-but-stylish eyelashes I'd pair with a gorgeous dress on Halloween in the photo below, then brush up on skull chic in Get the Look. Plus, don't miss all the glamorous Halloween makeup ideas from Eve Kleimenova and eerie lighting tips from Ira Levy of Levy Lighting.

Happy Halloween!
