Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. For one obvious reason, it's my birthday. But also because I love to dress up. In past years I've spent hours putting together creative outfits, for example gluing 100 peacock feathers together to make a tail, or creating a jelly fish skirt out of endless amounts of ribbon and glow sticks. But this year the holiday snuck up on my so quickly I didn't even have a moment to spend thinking up a costume. As soon as I read this Glitter Guide article, I knew a glamourous leading lady is exactly what I was meant to be. I love the sophisticated glamour of Audrey's look, and after wearing this glam costume for an evening this weekend, I felt like I wouldn't mind playing dress up like this everyday.
I already had this Topshop dress in my closet, so I only had to add a few signature Audrey touches like long gloves, jewels, a faux cigarette holder and of course, long lashes to complete her look. I used this sock bun hair accessory from H&M to secure a great high bun, and added a tiny tiara as the finishing touch.
Are you playing dress up this Halloween? I'd love to hear!
