Every year about this time, I get super excited to dress up for Halloween. In college, my friends and I would go to one of those seasonal Halloween stores and spend an arm and a leg on their ridiculously over-priced costumes. Now, I know that diy costumes are usually much cheaper AND cuter. If only I knew then what I know now…sigh. Even though I won’t be dressing up this year, I still can’t resist planning out a few costumes made from items I already have in my closet or could acquire cheaply from Forever 21 or thrift stores. For the hippie costume, any shift dress will work- the louder the print and the brighter the color, the better. If you don’t own go-go boots, as I assume (and hope!) most of us don’t, I think a pair of gladiator sandals or fringed boots would look great. Add some round glasses and a headband with straight hair or a boho braid. For jewelry, I would layer on lots of long necklaces- one with feathers, one with a peace sign, one of these, and one of these. And load up your arms with bangles…the more the merrier!
Now that I’ve written this post, I really wish I was dressing up for Halloween this year. Ha! Maybe next year.
