Friday's Fancies: Halloween Prep

I will be the first to admit that in the past, I have spent embarrassing amounts of money on Halloween costumes. In college, it was a few of those "sexy" packaged costumes (you can't pass judgment on college activities, right?), and in my post-grad years I have been known to go a bit too far tracking down the EXACT dress Taylor Swift wore (topped off with a much-too-expensive, itchy, blonde curly wig).

Now that I’m (pretending to be) a real person, I would much rather spend all of that money on some fun Halloween d├ęcor (I’ve been lusting after this guy for a while) to feel festive for the season, rather than on an outfit I’ll wear for one night.

All of my problems were solved once this season of New Girl started; Jess has not only been sporting J.Crew a TON, but she’s very conveniently been styled in items I already have (great taste, Jess/Zooey!).

So – voila! Easy-peasey Halloween costume – just top it off with some faux glasses and bangs (real or clip-in? Still undecided…), and I’m set to go.

Now as long as I can manage to not spill beer on my J.Crew cashmere I’ll be golden.

Are you dressing up for Halloween? Do share your costume ideas!


  1. I was considering being her! Though I channel Jess in everyday life soo I probably should be someone different for Halloween :) Love all your adorable preppy picks. and the polka dot sweaters are perfect!

  2. Love this idea! And I love those polka dot sweaters too!

  3. Great idea!!!! I love it!! Have a great weekend!!

  4. Great idea! I love her on the show (and in real life)! I've been wanting to try clip in bangs too!!

  5. Brilliant! I love the idea of using things you already own to dress up for the holiday; it's so much less stressful and practical!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments - each one truly makes my day!
