planning ahead/halloween

Let's be honest, picking a Halloween costume kind of sucks.  

I'm officially too old (or perhaps too married) to be a slutty "insert profession here" a la Mean Girls.   However, unless you're taking a child trick-or-treating you can't wear anything too terribly cutesy.  I also don't have lots of money with which to purchase the perfect age-appropriate costume - see THIS gorgeous peacock costume, which would be adorable with the addition of OPAQUE BLACK TIGHTS.  

Last year I was just a cat, and Darrell was a dog.  BORING.  So I'm going to make a little more effort this year, by planning ahead.  Here are a few of my favorite ideas so far!  

My personal favorite pick?  Holly Golightly.  I have every single item in my closet (minus the cat) so it would cost $0.  Also, you just get to look really nice all evening dressed like her!  

I LOVE the minion costumes - it would perhaps require a little work & cash, finding the hats and having the shirts made, but I'm convinced you could keep it under $30.  

The pinata one is ADORABLE but I have no patience for that.  If you do, the instructions are here!  

Mary Poppins would be really cute if you had a cute date to be Bert.  Bonus points if he can tap dance!
