Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!
Unfortunately, mine was cut short by an overwhelmed two-year-old who refused to wear her thrifted Winnie the Pooh costume and found adults in spooky attire just a little too much to bear (har-har). Ah well, there's always next year, and at least I was really pleased with how my costume turned out.
Talk about a versatile Halloween dress, there were so many different directions I could have gone with it. I'm sure I'll be wearing this dress in various incarnations for years to come. It was actually in the Christmas section of the crafts store though, where inspiration struck.
When I came across the glittery silver star tree toppers and then that shiny-sequined spray on the headpiece. Some wire, a black headband, silver pipe cleaners, and a few safety pins later... voila, I'm an astronomical phenomenon!
P.S. Just a quick thanks to my lovely readers for all the wonderful comments on my previous post! So many of you shared your own personal experiences with thrifting and why you love it and I've really been enjoying reading them, so thanks! You guys are awesome :)
