BOO!! Did you have a Happy Halloween? Well I sure did. It was my goal this year to be a bit more creative with my Halloween costume. You know, I didn’t wanna be lazy with an “At-Home” costume and I didn’t want to purchase one from the store either and risk being someone’s Halloween twin. Also, the ultimate goal was to keep it fashionable.A few weeks ago, I was invited to an actual Halloween Party so I knew I had a REAL reason to get dressed up for the Holiday. So I toyed around with a few people to be and multiple ideas. I finally settled on Carmen SanDiego. In addition to LOVING this show as a kid (nerd alert), I took one look at the cartoon images of her and I knew I had the necessary pieces to complete this look in my closet(s). So I just went for it. The only thing I ended up purchasing for this look was the hat, which I scored from Dollar Tree for…you guessed it one dollar and the yellow felt I glued to the hat to make it just like Carmen’s hat. I bought the felt from my local JoAnn’s Fabrics for 25 cents.
What I’m Wearing: Kenneth Cole Trench Coat/Thrifted Blouse Lemon Lime Peacock (last seen here)/Kelsi Dagger Over The Knee Boots/Thrifted Earrings/Random Gloves/Walmart CD Case (used as faux briefcase/Dollar Tree Hat/JoAnn's Fabric Felt (used as a faux ribbon)
I really enjoyed myself for Halloween 2013. I’m looking forward to next year. I wonder who I’ll be. One thing is for sure, it will be FASHIONABLE.
Did you guys dress up this year? If so, tell me who you were and provide a link on social media outlet where I can see the pictures. I have seen so many good costumes this year, I’d love to see more.
