5 Great Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Happy almost Halloween!!

I really excited about this holiday because it will be the first time I take the princess trick or treating and her first Halloween party.  (I tell you, her social calendar is way more exciting than mine!)  So being the type-A person I am, I spent the last month trying to figure out our costumes, settling on a theme just a few weeks ago.  But if you’ve been procrastinating and or don’t want a spend a fortune on a quick and cute costume, no worries!  I got you covered. 😉


Halloween Costume

What I Wore

Rosie the Riveter

The symbol of the can-do woman!  All you need to pull this off is a denim shirt, a pair of jeans, a red bandanna, and a fierce red lip.


Halloween Costumes

Real Beauty

Stylish Red Riding Hood

The perfect excuse to wear (or to buy!) that cute little red cocktail dress!   Add a pair of black pumps, an inexpensive cape, and basket and you’re good to go.


Morticia Adams

Cable Car Couture

Morticia Adams

Any black outfit can work when pulling this costume off, as long as it’s sleek and form fitted.  Dark winged liner, voluminous lashes, and a bold red lipstick are all you need makeup wise. Grab a dark wig or (rock your own) to finish the costume off.  (bonus points for a white powdered face.


DIY Halloween Costume

She Knows

A Minion

I love the movie Despicable Me, especially those cute little minions!  To be your own version of this character, you’ll need a bright yellow shirt, a pair jean overalls (or jeans with black suspenders), black gloves, and over-sized goggles. You could also throw in a yellow skull cap and black tights too! If you don’t have anything like this in your closet, your local thrift store is the perfect place to look.


Halloween Costume Adult


A Pageant Queen

Poofy dress, big hair, heavy on the makeup, tiara, and sash – super easy!  Hit up a thrift store for a fancy dress and an accessories store like Claire’s for a tiara.  A sash is real easy to make yourself.  Hair spray and gel can make your hair as big as you want it to and just go extra on the makeup.

Modcloth Polyvore Outfit Challenge: The Following Dreams Sweater

When it comes to writing for your blog, I’m always talking about creating the types of content you love doing and one thing I absolutely love doing on here is creating outfits.  Let’s face it, trying to take outfit pictures with a toddler running around is challenging to do on a daily basis. Creating outfits using Photoshop or free platforms like Polyvore are the next best thing for me!  So it was only natural  when Modcloth reached out to me about their weekly Polyvore Outfit Challenges, I couldn’t pass up the chance to participate.  I adore their clothes and use them in a lot of my fashion posts (remember this cardigan?).   They have so many clothes and accessories to choose from with a vintage vibe that you don’t see everywhere else.

So how does this challenge work?  Every week they send out a piece of clothing to  create an outfit from with using the clothes and accessories from their site.  The winner get’s featured on their Polyvore page along with the rest of their fun and stylish sets.

This week’s item was the Following Dreams Sweater, a cute white and blue top combining stripes and polka dots in a fun and stylish way.   I’m a sucker for an awesome pair of flare jeans and you know I couldn’t resist a bold, pop of color, adding in a bold red scarf and lipstick.  I finished the look off with a pair of comfy looking, vintage pair of low flats and fun earrings.

What do you ladies think?  What would you wear with this sweater?


A Faux Leather Skirt Styled 3 Ways

When I think of what kind of leather skirt I would wear, your typical mini one with a slit on the side does not come to mind.  If I was in my twenties maybe but your girl has passed that stage in life.  I need something slightly girly but with the same edge that only leather can give.  It needs to accommodate these curves and age appropriate (i.e no old lady vibes!). When I found this faux leather skater skirt from TopShop, it was exactly what I was looking for!  Available up to a size 16, the full skirt has the right amount of flirtatiousness without looking too young.  The length isn’t bad either, hitting an inch or so above the knee.  After playing with this skirt for this fashion series, it gets major versatility points too wearable both day and night.

Fierce Jewelry: Cocktail Rings

A major reason why I love fashion jewelry is because it’s fun, a great way a fashionista can show off her creativity.  And when you’re rocking a huge, funky cocktail ring on your hand, you’re oozing artistic expression.  I would rock more of them if I could (it’s hard to find my ring size at my favorite accessories spots) but after spotting these babies, I will look a little harder!
