My Halloween Style: Edgy and Chic Skull Accessories
For years I have been into skull accessories, so in the spirit of Halloween I selected five of my favorites to share with you!
I pretty much wear this ring every day on my index finger and it seems that everyone who likes it, buys one for themselves. The positioning of the skulls make it very subtle and understated so a great option if you want to keep your inner Goth under wraps.
