Keeping it Retro

Dress? Vintage Shoes? Thrifted Belt? Thrifted Nails? China Glaze in Hey Sailor Lipcolour? Palladio LipLiner in Red Rose with some Plumping Gloss in Crimson Criminal for a bit of shine Make-up c/o Sally Beauty

I'm pretty slack at Halloween. For years I only really cared about the 50% off candy on November 1st. If I had a party, I might dress up but it was always a last minute thing; grab something from my closet and make it work. Julie usually throws a good Halloween party and last year I maximized my effort and went as... a cat. 
The truth is, I am never going to win any singing competitions, an athletic honour or the Best Dressed award at Julie's party and I'm ok with that. Some people are good at singing, sports and Halloween and I'm good at pruning hedges and taking pictures of myself with a timer. It all works out in the end.

I just did a little segment on TV  yesterday (my part is towards the end...) about using vintage for your Halloween costume and I wore this outfit. The vintage dress is from the shop (and it now needs the back seam sewn up because I split it right before we went on air... why does this always happen to me?) and I would usually wear a dress like this with modern shoes and my regular messy curls. I wear a lot of vintage in my day-to-day wear but I often mix it with modern clothing to keep the look current. To make the dress work as a costume instead, I took the look in a far more retro direction with 1940's inspired pumps (actually from the 80's but fashion always comes back around), pantyhose, ear clips, victory rolls in my hair and some poppy red make-up I picked up at Sally Beauty . Sally Beauty is the place that has your hair, face and nails covered with everything from really fancy professional gadgets to good quality every day make-up. 

I picked out the vampy red make-up because I love some glam red nails and a poppy pout to add to a last minute Halloween costume but I also love red nails and lips the other 364 days a year... Making my costume and make-up do double duty for regular life and Halloween. #werk

Are you dressing up? Is your effort level higher than mine?;)
