HOLLY GOLIGHTLY....halloween party costume

Pretend smoking of course...

Love the classic hearse parked at the party.... who drove up in this?  I wanna meet them.

Thrifted shoes, necklaces, bag, faux mink stole, dress from Ross for less than 10.00. Cig holder, gloves and sunglasses at party city.  I always try to use what I have at home and then buy new what I can't find in the thrift stores.


Last  Halloween I had two parties to attend. Lucky me I know.  I love Halloween and diy costumes.  I always make my own even though I can't sew.  My husband and I dress up every year and if we know someone is giving out candy to the kids, we disguise ourselves and visit them.  Last season we visited Lisa of FortyishandFluffy.  She is taking a blogger break right now.  But she and her husband did not know it was Rob and I as we got our candy and left only to return in a few minutes to reveal ourselves to them. I know it's insane but fun.  I was Audrey Hepburn last season for one of the parties and Rob was this funny Kmart worker with a mullet.  I have to find those photos and I will post them as well.  Have a great Saturday.  I have to work all weekend and this morning is yoga with the Seniors  yay.  I need it.  What will you be this year?   I would love to know....dawn xo
