gatsby style.

can you believe halloween is next month?! in the past my friends and i have coordinated group adult costumes (nurses and disney characters in college, the ymca group, characters from the wizard of oz and my personal favorite dominos!) this year we're branching out on our own and i want to embrace my inner flapper. i found the perfect costume from buycostumes.com and i can't wait to wear it.
black fringe flapper dress $35 (i got the xs/s and it fits perfectly)cigarette holder $1.99 (i foresee using this again for an audrey breakfast at tiffany's costume) lauren hope gwyneth necklace $135 (this necklace is high on my wishlist, wouldn't it be perfect?!) - gatsby book cover 

do you still celebrate halloween? do you dress up?!
xo,

  5. Ah, that is a really cool costume! Here in Germany, we don't do Halloween, but if, I'd go for a flapper dress, too.

    Enjoy the party! xo.

  8. We *always* dress up for Halloween! In past years I've been kermit the frog, a bumble bee & a flapper girl! I've totally been thinking about reviving the flapper girl costume this year too - I so love the 20's!!
