Halloween!

I freaking love a costume, so it should come as no surprise that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year.  Last year was deathly ill on Halloween and I missed out on all the fun.  This year will be different.
I've given quite a bit of thought to this year's costume and I narrowed it down to two perfect possibilities.

A) Little Edie Beale from Grey Gardens (Have you seen it?  Despite Drew Barrymore's awful and terrible acting, the story's got it all.  The NY setting, the eccentric characters, the fabulous costumes.  I adored it)



OR
B) Rosie the Riveter.  Universally recognized and totally cute hairdo.



In the end I decided on Rosie.  Frankly, her costume is cuter and I think she's more recognizable than Little Edie.  If you still haven't decided, check out Jessica's amazing and inspiring designs on What I Wore.  That girl is a genius.  Stayed tuned for my Halloween photos!

Hi. I must admit that it's really great costume idea. My situation with costume is the same as the last year. I love ghosts, so I'm going to wear my home made ghost costume. However, if I want to be original I have to remake it little bit. And with good make up this costume looks very spooky.

Happy Halloween,
Ella
