a vintage halloween

i love everything about halloween. cool, crisp weather, carving pumpkins, tricks and treats, scary movies, haunted houses, hay rides! did i mention treats?!? but the best part, of course, are the costumes! i LOVE dressing up. megan and i will come up with costume ideas all year. starting the day after halloween we are trying to come up with next year's costume. in fact, we usually have so many ideas that we never decide what we're actually going to be until the last minute! luckily we have piles of vintage clothing  in our closets. we're bound to find something that will work!

today i came up with three great, vintage-inspired costume ideas. we have a blond, a brunette, and a redhead. something for everyone!


and just for you, i scoured etsy to find everything you'll need for each costume! fun, fun, fun!!! if you want, i'll come over and do your makeup too!

marilyn:

audrey:

clara:

and if you know me, you know i love a great headpiece. especially a 1920s-inspired one. i just couldn't pick between this, this and this. oh, and this! they are all fabulous!
