It’s nearing the end of October and Halloween is almost here – a time of year that brings about changes in seasons as well as wardrobes. We have been fawning over the recent ready-to-wear collections hitting stores now and are willing to skip lunches and work a couple of extra hours overtime to invest in a fabulous Fall wardrobe.
What’s a fashionable gal to do when deciding between which new fall wardrobe pieces to buy while still having cash left over for a fabulous Halloween costume? If you’re anything like us and obsessed with quality, you’ll agree that buying anything in a plastic bag containing items like “one size fits all” or “acrylic” are scary thoughts. Halloween is scary enough as it is!
Here’s an idea – grab a classic lace dress or any LBD already hanging in your closet and invest in some amazing accessories to create an instant designer costume at a fraction of the price! The best news is you’ll have enough moola left over to buy those trendy glitter heels that will make your costume pop and can also take you through the Holiday party season. Add some cat ears or a witch hat with some dramatic make-up and whala – you’re ready for a treat!
Here are some great ready-to-wear pieces that will add some pop to your Halloween costume:
