HAPPY HALLOWEEN, Fashionista/os! Hope you've had a successful week preparing your costumes and readying your trick-or-treat bags! Anyone who knows me knows the daunting task I've taken on this week: finding the perfect Halloween costume. After deciding I wanted to be a 50s pin-up girl for Halloween, I realized just how difficult it was going to be to put the outfit together–I was on the lookout for anything 50s on campus.
This Fashionista was spotted in the stadium parking lot getting ready to head home after a day of mid-terms. A couple of things caught my eye about her outfit; first, the classic Ray-Bans she was wearing. I knew if my outfit was really going to emulate 50s wear, I had to have a pair of Ray-Bans. The straight-leg jeans (or possibly jeggings) also shouted 50s, especially with their perfect dark wash and just-at-the-ankle crop. The Fashionista's electric orange shirt, too, paired with her dark jeans screamed "Happy Halloween!"–not many can pull off the combination without looking costume-y!
Today's Fashionista definitely inspired confidence in my 50s-costume-search, but I will definitely have to perfect the look by tonight. So happy Halloween-ing, and may your costume get the "best dressed" award!
