Elephants and Polka dots

I had a busy day in this dress. I had a meeting at my old high school for a fundraiser. I also went to the library and picked up some marketing books because there is something our business is not doing right and I want to fix it. Then I attempted shopping at Kohl's (I got a cute dress), and picked up some supplies.

My body has changed shape a lot so I'm really glad this dress still fits. It's one of my go to pieces.

Easy Costumes

Next Saturday is Halloween so this is the last weekend for costumes from your closet. Today the costumes are super simple.
To be Daphne from Scooby Doo you need a purple dress and a green scarf. A red wig would make the look complete. 
Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz is such a great costume. This gingham dress is so cute you can wear it again and the shoes are so sparkly and the flats will keep your feel comfortable. 

To be Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's just do you hair in a bun add your black dress and pearls and you are done. 
What are you being for Halloween?

Eyelet

I wore this to a trade show. I don't know if anyone has come in because of it but more people know where we are now which is good. I had a pretty good time. A local grocery store put out a buffet and a photographer did a fun photobooth.

Very easy Halloween

These costumes might be the easiest yet. Just two pieces and some optional accessories.
Linda from Bob's Burgers is very easy. Red long sleeve tee and some jeans. You can add an apron and red glasses to complete the look.
The little mermaid has a shell tank and these cool leggings and the leggings are under $10.
Snow white is a long yellow skirt and navy tee. A red lip is necessary.
Tina from Bob's Burgers is very simple. Light blue tee and navy skirt. You can add knee socks and converse and you are good to go.

Denim

My normal jeans are a little too tight so they are now work jeans. I got these bootcut Denizen jeans from Target for my new casual jeans. The short length is just the right length for heels. It's a nice medium between flare and skinny. The wider leg balances out my hips.

Costumes from your closet

Last week I showed easy costumes from the movie Clueless.This week I'm showing disgust,joy, Minnie Mouse, and Regina George. If you don't have the pieces for the costumes, they are pieces you can wear again.

First is disgust. A green floral dress is the center piece. I know the one in the movie is a bit more monochromatic but I think this dress is very Mindy Kaling. You could also do a solid green dress. Just add a purple scarf and a green wig.
Joy and disgust are a great group costume. You need a yellow floral dress and a blue wig.
Minnie Mouse is a classic. You need a polka dot dress,yellow heels and black tights.
Regina George is so simple. Cut wholes in a white tank with a purple bra or tank underneath. Pair it with a black skirt.

Halloween Costumes Clueless

Every weekend this October I'm going to show you some Halloween costumes with pieces you can wear again! I'm going to start with Clueless. Clueless is one of my favorite movies. I was Cher for Halloween last year and I might be her again this year.

Forever 21 says this is a dress. Adding a sheer jacket makes it great for listening to Billie Holiday.
If you don't want to go full plaid suit, the plaid skirt and yellow sweater is a good option. Party City does have a costume available.
Every Cher needs a Dionne. This plaid jacket from Target and plaid skirt from Romwe look great together.
If you add a white boa and 90s cell phone to this Forever 21 dress you have the look from the poster.

Feathers and Pearls

Last weekend my friend and I went to Dc Fashion Week. It was pretty fun and we accidently coordinated. We both wore black and green.
I picked up this feather top a while ago on a great sale. It was originally over $100 but I got it for $15. The jacket is vintage. When my favorite vintage store was closing the owner pulled this from the back because he thought I would like it. He was right. Pearls,rhinestones and feathers is a bit much for everyday but I thought it worked for the event.
