Hi everyone,

As much fun as choosing a wild, transformative Halloween costume can be, sometimes it’s fun to choose something that’s a bit more fashion friendly. Not only does this allow you to use items from your existing wardrobe, but it also means that if you do decide to buy something you’ll be able to wear it beyond Halloween. But don’t forget to have fun with creating your look! Maybe your costume will be the perfect excuse to buy a daring piece of clothing that you’ve been lusting after!

Here are my three favorite fashion and beauty friendly costumes:



  1. ALI & KRIS Chambray Womens Shirt
  2. Steven by Steve Madden Tall Wedge Boots
  3. Hollister Co. Super Skinny Jeans
  4. Sheplers Spur Fur Felt Western Hat
  5. Alexander McQueen Printed Chiffon Skull Scarf in Red


  1. Mimco Deco Embroidered Headband
  2. Vintage Cigarette Holder
  3. Seychelles Women’s All Dressed Up T-Strap Pump in Teal
  4. Dorothy Perkins Black Tired Sequin Dress
  5. Black Feather Boa
  6. Peter Alan Long Black Gloves


  1. Oska White Paris V-Neck Jersey Top
  2. Betsey Johnson Silver Tone Square Crystal Stud Earrings
  3. LeSportsac Large Travel Tote in Black
  4. Miss Selfridge Dancer Nude Ballet Pump
  5. Miss Selfridge Petites Peach Net Tutu Skirt
  6. Michael Antonio Love Me Pumps in Nude
