Fast Tip Wednesday Halloween Edition

16 Oct

Happy Wednesday Ladies! We are in the middle of the work week but dreaming of Halloween parties! This weekend will mark the start of many of the Halloween festivities and we wanted to be prepared!

Just like we did last year, we went through our inventory and came up with some quick costume ideas. All you need is the dress from JBR Clothing and the accessories from Target. Yes, we got all of our accessories from Target (and a majority from their Dollar Stop!).

We wanted to focus on dresses that we could wear to work during the day, then add a few simple items and stop in at a Halloween party. I can tell you this, Rachel plans on wearing the SPOILER ALERT Frankenstein costume!

Our first costume is a simple witch! All you need is the Zombie Dress from Folter and a witch’s hat. We paired our dress with a purple hat to give you extra color and drama. We kept the purple theme going by adding the Acai Hello Kitty Loungefly Embossed Tote for the day look.

This was our favorite look that we shot for this spread. Like I said, Rachel has already told us that she plans on buying the Bats 50’s Green dress from Hell Bunny to recreate this look for her Halloween celebration.  We added a green petticoat for extra volume in the skirt. For the day look we paired it with the Doomed cardigan from Hell Bunny  for those people who can’t wear a halter into their job. For the costume part we found a simple mask from the Dollar Spot and a set of glow in the dark vampire teeth. They looked less like vampire teeth and just scary monster teeth.

To get a simple devil outfit we chose the H&R London Red Mini Polka Dot Halter Swing dress. Target sells a devil kit that comes with horns, bow tie, and tail. Instead of using the bow tie, we bought a capelet from the Halloween section of Target (costing approximately $20).  Accentuate this look with a powerful red lip and you are done. If you want to add more drama, we would suggest purchasing a pair of black cuff gloves (we thought the fingerless one would look great).


Our final costume idea is a simple black cat.  IDEA ALERT: If you and a friend are going out together, one of you can be the witch the other the black cat!  In order to get this look you need the Stop Staring! Nightlife Swing dress and either cat ears, or a cat mask like we used above. We added more feminine details by using a double strand pearl necklace and a black satin sash.

We hope that these ideas gave you a new perspective on how you can create a Halloween costume that can be worn after the one day holiday! If you have another way that you can create a costume from your JBR dress, please email them to us, Tweet us, post to Facebook or tag us on Instagram! We love to see how you are making our items uniquely yours!
