"I wanted to do something kind of different...something very costume-y, that utilized pieces of my wardrobe that I rarely get to wear, and that really still maintained that vintage vibe that I love. Plus ICambria has other great fashion ideas at her blog Jupe!
always love to represent famous and fun characters from literature! When I saw the dalmatian print collar, red satin, and black vintage-style tulle skirt all hiding in the back of my closet...they brought to mind one of my favourite childhood books, 101 Dalmatians...and I realized that I could make my own retro glam Cruella Deville costume :) It's definitely a different take, but I had so much fun with the devilish colour palette and glam style, plus finding a way to style my makeup and hair that had that vintage movie star feel and that freakish Cruella Deville look! My photographer friend managed to style it with just a comb...and I added those little beauty spots just for effect. Hope that you enjoy!"
"My first Halloween celebrated with my boyfriend was last year, and somehow I convinced him to dress up in a couple's costume with me: Roger and Jessica Rabbit. Using a formal dress for a high school function that was already on its last leg, I dyed it in the sink and added some accessories that were "Jessica Rabbit"-esqe."Stop by Jessica's blog Here & Now to see her great style!
"Okay, just so you know, I'm not entirely sure how I feel- on a deeply personal level and superficial level- about these pictures. Hah! I'm suppose to be a Strawberry Shortcake girl, I guess, but not her exactly?! It was one of those last minute costume purchases. You know, the one where you have to find a costume because your friend wants you to go to her Halloween party and you were undecided about doing anything for Halloween in the first place, but you partly feel like you should do something because, well, you're not doing anything else, and your friend is really encouraging you to go?! So that's what happened here. And I think what sold me were those striped green socks. Even then I had a thing for stripes, and, welp, knee high socks. I've always loved knee high socks. Needless to say, I once again am undecided about what I want to dress up as this year or if I'm doing anything. It might take another friend to force me to go out and get dressed up. The Darling Husband hates dressing up and going to Halloween balls. I don't do the balls anymore either. I stick to small get-togethers or parties. Although, I love Halloween just as much today as I did when I was a kid. Some things just never change with me."Jessica's blog, The Jessica L Blog is the home of some cute style!
last year to go dancing for Halloween! I loved this costume and will probably end up wearing it again one of these upcoming years! I've got something else planned for this year though...
What are you dressing up as this Halloween?
