Friday Frocks: Double Duty

By |October 15th, 2010|Friday Frocks|

I figured why not throw you a bone and do a little double duty Friday Frocks. I know, I know… I haven’t been too helpful in the Halloween costume suggestions this year. Probs because I’m a little over all of them. So, here is a happy medium. Dresses that could be worked into a Halloween costume and then worn again in regular daily life.

With some rhinestone or feather hair accessories, voila! You’re a flapper.

Haute Hippie Trish Flapper Dress, $695

Add some ears and you’re Minnie Mouse.

Rare Polka Dot Body Conscious Dress, $33.70

I mean, who hasn’t dreamt of being a ballerina in Swan Lake?

Jay Godfrey Sleeveless Feather Bottom Dress, $440

Pin curls + Red lips + Thigh highs and heels = Pin Up Girl

Mod Cloth She’s Got It All Dress, $34.99

Add a blonde wig, red lips, mole and heels… Look at you, Marilyn Monroe!

American Apparel Baby Rib Cross Back Summer Dress, $27

Ahoy! Lookin’ good, sailor!

Mod Cloth Lotty Dotty Dress, $59.99

Me-ow! Add ears and you’re good to go!

Brian Lichtenberg One Shoulder Padded Dress, $398

Weather it’s a Naughty Nurse or Dirty Dentist, you’re only a few props away.

L.A.M.B. Knit Dress with Cutout, $250

Happy Haunting!



Happy Ho-lloween.

I love costumes. Give me a reason to wear one and I’m THERE.  Seriously, ask my bf. He’s come home many times to a sassy secretary or desperate housewife.  Well, Halloween is just around the corner, so I thought I’d give some helpful costume suggestions.  I tried to dig up some of my all time favorites of my own, but didn’t have much luck.

For Groups:

Football team (or another sports team): We did this years ago and it was a big hit copied for several years after. We literally came up with a team name (the Vixens), mascot (a fox), and put numbers and nicknames on the back.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Yeah, we attempted to do this one year. While I thought it was brilliant, not everyone was ecstatic about the green unitards from American Apparel.  I still think it’s hilarious and would make an amazing group costume.

Cast of Sex and the City: Kind of tame, but pretty easy to pull off. However, there may be a dispute over who gets to be Carrie and who gets stuck as Miranda.

Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian: Tight dresses, padded derrieres, and don’t forget the baby bump for Kourtney.

Bret Michaels and Rock of Love Girls: Um, amazing. Enough said.

Flying Solo:

Lady Gaga: there will probably be a ton of these, but any good reason to wear a blonde wig and leotard should be taken advantage of.

Ana Wintour: (a slutty Ana) is kind of amazing. Get a sweet bob wig and some big black glasses.

Vampire: (a slutty one, obviously). If you aren’t feeling too adventurous, jump on the vampire bandwagon. For some reason, don’t ask me why, people are totally vampire crazy.

Devil in a Blue Dress: This actually came from my mom (clever as always). It’s perfect for a more tame Halloween party or somewhere that you don’t want your entire abdomen showing.  Get a cute blue dress and devil horns, voila!


Pam and Jim from The Office: Not particularly sexy, but who doesn’t love Pam and Jim?

Jon and Kate (Plus 8): This could be pretty brilliant. You may have to stop by the local Toys R Us and pick up some dolls, and you will probably lose several throughout the night, but that makes it an even better costume.

Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf: Pretty self explanatory, no?

Each Other: This could be really funny. Dress like each other and exaggerate their characteristics. This could also prove to be very good couple’s therapy.

Happy haunting!
