It's that time of year again when we all get to play dress up and play the role of a special character. Halloween is a favorite holiday for children and also for us grown-ups. This Halloween, my LBD takes on the Queen of Hearts character, from the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. 

I'm trying to get through the gates of my castle. Why are they locked?

I am a queen with ungovernable passion. I love to wear hearts of red and jewelry of gold, worthy of a royal wardrobe.

 I am the queen! Let me into my castle or off with your heads!

 Every queen needs a little black dress in her wardrobe that she can accessorize and embellish to her liking. Regular Beth loves to change up her LBD all kinds of ways, but I only love my red hearts!

 Ok, since no one is letting me in, I'm gonna get an Uber and go to a Halloween party! Happy Halloween everybody!
