Happy Halloween All! I wanted to share with you my costume for my office Halloween party yesterday, and tell you how I achieved this look. My office takes Halloween very seriously! We have a huge annual party with a extensive decor, food, great music provided by a DJ and an extremely competitive costume competition.
Every year, I try to dress up as something that I can create on my own. I like costumes that I can put together using clothing that I already have in my closet, and purchasing things that I can use again. For this Halloween, I decided to go with Mary Poppins. I mean, who doesn’t love that Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious woman! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed Julie Andrews in this film growing up. As a lover of all things fashion related, I was always in awe of how much she was able to fit into her purse!
To create this look, I wore heels, tights, a faux leather H&M skirt, and a button down white blouse that I already had. This was half of my costume, so I only needed to shop for accessories. On Wednesday, I decided to run to Forever 21, and luckily, I found exactly what I was looking for. I purchased this fabulous black hat, and red bow (which was a barrette, but I made it into a bow tie). To decorate the hat, I went to the Dollar Store after work and purchased two bundles of fake flowers, one white set and one red. I mean, $2! You can’t beat that. Finally, I borrowed this Red Door Spa umbrella from my best friends mom, and was finally finished with my costume! To top off the look, I wore MAC’s “Russian Red” lipstick, and O.P.I’s “Big Apple Red” on my nails; both of these items, I already had. In total, I may have spent a total of $25 on new items, and used everything else from my closet.
If you are attending a Halloween party this weekend, and aren’t sure what to be, I hope this look can inspire you!
Have a wonderful Halloween weekend with your children, family and friends. I will talk to you all very soon!
