It was a dark and stormy night, and you could swear you heard sounds coming from your kitchen. Was it the ghost of dinners past, a zombie gnawing on your leftovers or — gasp! — a horrible DIY costume from last year that just won’t die?! Look, Halloween is just about the only time you’re “allowed” to pass off a bed sheet for an outfit, but that doesn’t mean you have to.
Sure, costumes are fun, but if you’re going to have a sophisticated celebration this year, take some cues from Nadia G’s Halloween Special attire, then break out that badass Iron Man suit when the sun goes down.

Let’s talk Halloween decor. People spend a fortune on this stuff. Why? It’s so easy and cheap to turn your place into a nightmarish crypt. Nadia G.’s simple theatrical blood is pure Dexter. Just schvitz some on a table cloth or old sheet. It doesn’t get much creepier than that.

Nadia G. is back in da house! Well, she’s actually back at the office to bring some life to your Office Lunches. But that doesn’t mean a pantsuit is gonna fly! You know it wouldn’t be Nadia G. without a little multicolored print and a lot of punchy pumps. In Office Lunches, we’re going for statement pieces, pulled together with some soft waves and makeup, making for a freakin’ sweet outfit.
When you tell your boss that there’s no way you’re staying overtime, you’re going to have to give some serious puppy dog eyes, bro. A good start is some flattering eyeshadow, and these M.A.C colors, “Brun” and “Shroom” work a double shift because they’re perfect for day and can be rocked out for night.

When your friends get hitched, you can’t help but feel alone and friendless. In fact, you might start questioning what you’re doing with your life and debating how many cats you should adopt.

And don’t worry, you may not have your bestie’s “no, that doesn’t make you look fat” approval, but we’ve got the perfect party outfit for a great night.

We all know that maturing usually goes hand in hand with fashion sense. Sure, some of us were stylish kids, but the rest of us suffered the humiliation of matching our siblings hand-me-downs and, dare I say it, school uniforms. We have our parents to thank for that! In Nadia G.’s “Childhood Favorites” episode, she’s showing you that nostalgia can be cool, as long as you leave the acne out of it. Vintage tees can be glammed up with a pair of skinny jeans, sky-high heels and even some cuter-than-your-school-yearbook-photos socks – as long as they match.

A sandwich covered in blood is frightening, even to meat lovers. Thankfully, raspberry puree makes a gory enough stand-in so you don’t have to use actual blood and guts to make Nadia G’s scary sandwich. If you left it plain, it would be a fancified cheese sandwich, but with a few slashes of the knife, this sandwich gets dressed as a blood-drenched coffin for Halloween.
