What I Wore (Halloween Edition)


Two years of costumes.

One I broke the bank on.  And one that cost maybe $10.

Costume number one:  Mary Katherine Gallagher.

Cheap costume.  All thrifted (for about $10) or from my closet.... 


Never mind the clown or Brawny Paper Towel guy.

Costume number two.  Expensive.  Well over $100 spent.

I wanted to be decked in 80's finery head to toe.  From jelly bracelets to fingerless lace gloves.  An attempt to channel Madonna.....


Luckily, that costume has gotten a lot of mileage.  80's day at school.  Other Halloween parties.

The boots were a little dangerous, but no regrets spending the cash on this costume.  I loved it. 

I was, after all, a child of the 80's.

Basically, like, the best decade ever.

  11. I too love the Madonna look. That skirt of yours with the white top reminds me of the one I thrifted and didn't have to spend that much with mine, like dirt cheap for 50cents. Fun costumes though! :) Happy Halloween! Following you as well and thank you for following me. :)

  12. Glad I'm not the only one that did a costumes post for WIW today! :-D

    I was a child of the 80's, too, but in retrospect not my finest sartorial decade. :)

  18. Mary Katherine Gallagher is such a great costume idea! Plus you get to run around all night with your hands in your armpits...double win! I love a costume that has some sort of performance to go along with it. Great 80s costume too :)
