It’s that time of year again. It’s always some time of year again though. Anyway, the time of year I’m talking about is Halloween. And while some of you may be crotch deep in slutty costumes, some of us are a little tired of plopping down 50 bucks for a pre-packaged costume the size of a dinner napkin from Ricky’s only to exile said costume to the far corners of our closets the day after fright night. Luckily, there are quite a few frocks that can do double duty. Not only are they spot on for Fall, they’d also make for very good witchy, vampy costumes with the right makeup and props. Now to be clear, vampires just really aren’t my thing, but I’m not here to judge. I’m in front of my TV every Monday night for Gossip Girl… so…
Anyway, wearing a black lace or deep red velvet frock with some snagged stockings, smokey eyes, and maroon lips would make for a very sultry, very sexy (not slutty) Halloween costume. Pop some vampire teeth and fake blood in your clutch for added effect and you’ll be utterly bewitching.

The best part about a freaky frock? If you happened to have a slumber party with your very own Edward Cullen, you simply must wash your face to make the walk of shame home at the break of dawn.
