Fashionable Halloween

Hey Dolls!!

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 am very HAPPY to report that my costume was a HIT!!  It was so funny when people were a little unsure and trying to guess who I was they would kind of whisper to me:  Are you Carmen SanDiego?” LOL!!!  But the people who knew for sure, would sing part of the show’s theme song:  Where in the world is Carmen SanDiego?  It was hilarious!!  I actually ended up going to two parties and at the second party, this guy gave me $20 because he said I had the BEST costume he’d seen all night and I should win something.  Pure comedy, I had to take a picture with him. 
 
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.
