I LOVE wearing hats.
Here is a confession: I LOVE wearing hats.
And not only a timid little fedora. I'm talking, BIG BOLD hats which make walking through doors a bit of a battle. I was so pleased to find a new like "Whittall & Shon" which produces unapologetically extravagant hats! I chose this stunning white and crystal hat because of its versatility. Kate Middleton's infant on board. Yes we all are.
Once in awhile you stumble across a Vintage piece that you know will remain in your cupboard forever. Something which is so timeless it could transcend into year or almost any decade. For me personally it was this beautiful 1940's apparel purchased at my favorite shop in California: American Vintage.
The genius of this dress is the way that it juxtaposes a ordered military texture with a gentle, feminine pattern featuring beautiful tropical blossoms. Which ruffled satin pocket square? The piping and shiny buttons finish the look. I did include my belt here in order to cinch in the waist even more, choosing a shiny patent leather to match the buttons.
For accessories I picked a "retro" pair of polka dot sunglasses ($4.50 in XXI, thank you!) A pair of 2 vintage jet teardrop earrings, a ordered Vintage tote and...for a bit of luxe...my most prized pair of ruched suede Prada pumps.
I'm prepared for that dance today...
I was fortunate enough via Twitter to find an amazing spot to receive my costume this year. Due to Costume SuperCenter (and their superb worker Matt!) I managed to get into personality and encourage my love of Disney with this cute Mickey Mouse costume! Mickey is such a character that is joyous. You can not help but feel energetic in this mouse and romper again! The detachable shrug is possibly my favorite part. What a cute bit.
I think most girls on Halloween wish to feel hot. This costume is an exceptional choice because while it has some sexual appeal it will not leave you feeling more exposed. I'd recommend adding black tights because I did here or bare fishnets. Black fishnets in my personal opinion could be a little too racy. You don't wish to eliminate the "cute" factor!
I've included a link for this specific costume here so that you can check it out...but! You will find hundreds to select from. Have a peek at their website under. Get creative with your own costume!
