Easy, cute costume ideas!

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Halloween is inching closer and we're all trying to figure out what to be! While I'm still scrambling to put something together, I've created some fun costumes inspired by fashion that might give you a push in the right direction!

Laura Croft: She is a true badass. Her look screams, "fierce" and yet you don't have to buy too much to put the outfit together! Go to Goodwill and look for some old boots, the more "vintage" the better --- if your  boots are tattered, you look more hardcore! Find a black tank or tee, tight, black shorts and complete the outfit with a long braid. Halloween stores should have the rest of the pieces! 
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

The Sock Hop chick: This is a classic Halloween costume that anybody can pull off. The best part about it.... you don't have to buy a lot to make it work! Find a vintage skirt, (or something fun from your closet) and go from there. Choose a simple top, maybe something off the shoulder, and put a cardigan over it (if you want to add layers). Find some fun accessories like cat eye glasses, a scarf, poodle accessories, and big hair to complete the look!

Tina Turner Chic: Tina Turner is the definition of a Diva - a glamorous and successful female performer or personality- so recreating her look for Halloween is a perfect combo for glitz and glamour! This Forever 21 dress is a great starter piece to work off of. From there, buy sparkly accessories to complete the look you want. Crimp your hair or buy a wig, and you've turned yourself into a full blown diva!

Flirty Flamingo: Flamingos have become a symbol for breast cancer so as October is breast cancer awareness month I thought this would be a fun way to show support AND look super cute.  Find a pink dress to work with (this one is from American Apparel) and go from there! If you love pink, this is the perfect costume for you!

Mother Nature: You could do so much with this idea. Pick a dress or skirt and top and keep the colors blue and green. Add flowers, butterflies, a head piece, whatever you think is earthy to create the ultimate mother nature goddess.

Whether you're a flirty flamingo or glamorous diva, these costumes are easy to make and you can have fun with it! So before you go out and spend a ton of money on a costume that someone else might be wearing, take a look at your closet and get creative! You never know what you could find hiding away!

Happy Halloween!

Reflecting on Fall

The cold weather seems to have well and truly graced our shores this week and as we all scramble to put together something that resembles style whilst also keeping us warm — we are all trying to remember what trends we should be rocking this season, after months in our summer wardrobes. Well, allow this week’s posts to inspire, educate and warm you.

Happy Fall!

The latest bloggers do it better is all about the color, oxblood. I know, I know, it's a weird name but hey, you gotta know & love fashion to understand what it's all about! When Kristina from PSS sent out the email I was a little worried, but knew I was going to accept the challenge! I shopped & shopped & surprisingly couldn't find the fall staple color anywhere. So, I looked in my own closet only to remember I bought these fabulous skinnies that I absolutely LOVE!

Living in Florida, we don't get too many cool days but that doesn't stop me from adding my own fall touches. That's why I'm a scarf-aholic! It's a great layering piece & they are super cute!
This was such a fun shoot! Since fall just officially started, (& pumpkin spice lattes have retuned!) I wanted to celebrate with fall colors & have a rustic, country feel. My, as always, wonderful boyfriend, was the photographer & he knew exactly where to go!! I can't thank him enough for capturing me the way he does. ♥ 

The location is out in the country & you can feel fall in the air. It was so nice to be out with my love, just having fun with our Sunday.
  Pure happiness in my eyes  :}
Skinnies- Hollister
Top- Forever 21
Boots- Target
Scarf- Express

It's been a crazy couple weeks, with so much going on, so I thought, why not have a little fun with this shoot, adding some silly ones into the mix! 

So to all the fashionistas out there, have fun with fall! It's my favorite time of year for living & fashion!

p.s. This was by far, my favorite BDIB shoot!!! I had so much fun! Check out all the other fashionistas out there showing how they do oxblood!
