Guys. GUYS! I’m so excited, I’ve been looking forward to our first Halloween together since the first month this blog got off the ground! Today I’d like to focus more on the enjoyment of Halloween than making a big splash, because I know you guys are probably out having a ball. I may have blown my cover a little bit on the first post in this series. I got super excited about Snow White. Before we get to that, quick announcement:
On November 8th I’m going to be tweeting up a storm at a ritzy Fashion Show, so be sure to follow us on twitter over there on the sidebar. You’ll see the wonderful festivities there first! With that in mind, I’m taking today fairly easy, fashionwise.
I decided to work off of the aforementioned first post in this series and borrow that Snow White idea. I just had to do a different decade with it, and I’m obsessed with the 50s… So, obviously, I had to take that route! After a couple of roadblocks, I literally almost gave up my 1950s Snow White idea, but I’m so thankful for the great deals I landed that made this happen!

The finished #halloween2018 #costume ! I was set on a 1950s inspired Snow White since I lopped my hair off, and I decided “why not!”. . . The dress was from dresshead.com (11 dollars shipped) everything else was local! . . #womensfashion #costume #halloween #dress #vintage #ootd #outfit #fashionblog #styleoftheday #igfashion #igstyle #fashion #snowwhite #style #dresses #fashionpost #fashionstyle
I found a super cute rockabilly dress on dresshead.com, and immediately thought that it might work. I just needed a cardigan, and luck was with me! The perfect cardigan was waiting for me at Clothes Mentor! It would have been perfect with an iron on patch, but I was unable to find one that I liked. A little down, but not to be thwarted, I put together this costume with some more help from Clothes Mentor, where I found those heels in the perfect red. The best part is that the shoes are actually a style that was worn in the 50s, and I think they’d suit Snow White just fine! Besides, I had to get red from somewhere!
This costume walked that line between obvious costume and everyday-wear. In fact, I can see myself wearing this in the future when I just want to feel cute. It’s nicely toned down and appropriate for just wearing whenever! Guys, I have to admit, I had so much fun putting this costume together and wearing it! I had a petticoat just lying around and gathered the accessories that you can see below! I was so proud to be recognized as Snow White without my prompting. It just feels so cool to dress up and be recognized as the character, doesn’t it?
I made a little collage, if you follow it over to Instagram, you can check out the jewelry store that supplied my broach and pearls! I want to apologize to the vendor that provided my gorgeous ring, I misplaced the card somehow. The moment I find it, I’m going to add a link here and on the post!
I tried to veer more towards a 50’s thing for the makeup- I kept the eyes simple, and threw on a red lip. Of course, since they’re my Holy Grail lash right now, I added my Eylure Accents #005 to add to that really dark lash look that Snow White had in the fairy tale. I think if I could do it differently, I would have gotten a brighter blush rather than my usual peach. I do think it came out well though! You can also check out the makeup look in that collage above and on the FOTD archive over on instagram.
I was hoping to find some festivities in town tonight to tell you about here, but as it is Wednesday… there wasn’t really anything. So I did retire home early.
I hope you guys enjoyed our first Halloween together, I know I had loads of fun! Let me know in the comments what you’d like to see next year! I’m totally open to suggestions, or shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
