Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Halloween is every girl's favorite holiday (behind Christmas and probably Black Friday). Picking out the perfect costume is crucial. Costume choice can reveal so much about a person and send sooooo many different messages.

Exhibit A: Classic example from the greatest movie ever made.

After choosing your perfect Halloween costume, another great decision is to be made...DIY or BUY? Luckily for you, in this blog post I'll make the decision for you...do a little of both! Sure it would be waaaay easier to just go to the Halloween aisle in any convenience store and buy a costume, but costumes are pricey, and the choices available limit creativity! And making your complete costume from scratch could be time consuming and possibly unrealistic.

Exhibit B: From the lovely people of Pinterest

                     

 In the following article, we will conjoin the two: DIY and BUY to help you save time and money on this year's Halloween costume! Below presents three different dresses from Grey Suede.
