We went to a super fun Halloween party on Saturday night, and this was my costume! Pretty easy and almost entirely assembled from thrift store finds.

First off, I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of these photos. I didn't feel like getting ready hours before we were going to leave so that we could take photos before it got dark. Instead you get these lovely photos taken with a flash. Let's just pretend we were going for a Terry Richardson-esque look with the white wall and everything and call it a day.

Can you guess who I'm dressed as? Don't worry, no one could (this year or two years ago when I wore an almost identical costume). I'm Clara Bow! She was a famous, redheaded (although you couldn't tell because everything was black & white) silent film actress from the 20s. My favorite part of this costume is the eyelashes. Obviously they aren't historically accurate, but I do like to add a bit of outrageousness to my costumes. I pretty much want to wear these all the time, although I think that might result in some really weird looks. Also this curly hair is a fun change, but I know I'm too lazy to do it on a regular basis.

Did anyone else do anything fun for Halloween over the weekend, or is everyone waiting for the actual holiday on Wednesday? We're planning to carve a pumpkin and watch E.T. tonight...a Halloween tradition!

I'm linking up with Thrifters Anonymous, Steppin' Out#YOLO Mondays, and Transatlantic Blonde.

  3. Poor quality?! I don't think these are poor quality at all. Now I know I'm not great with my own camera and I'm not a professional, but hey, just saying they look great! Your costume is gorgeous, and I really love your hair and those eyelashes! -Jessica L
