DIY: Fabulous Halloween Costumes

Oh, October. The weather gets cooler, everything turns pumpkin flavored and we all start to panic about what to wear for Halloween. Figuring out the perfect costume for Halloween can be exhausting. Of course, there are specialty stores dedicated to selling ready-to-go costumes for Halloween. However, these costumes aren’t always budget friendly and you run the risk of someone else wearing the same costume as you to a party. Why have a Halloween fashion mishap when there are easy costumes you can make yourself? Not to worry, my fabulous fashionista! Here are 3 budget-friendly costumes using items you probably already have hanging in your closet.

Holiday Wear

The fall is all about prepping for the holidays and the endless parties. When October hits I know it’s time to shop for shiny sandals, blinged out statement jewelry and festive bodycon dresses. I love all the holiday glamour pieces in JustFab’s Holiday Glitz collection and would hate for my new shiny wardrobe to expire once the holidays are over. Thankfully, I’ve figured out the best way to use my holiday glitz on the regular during and after holiday season. Who said we can’t add a little umph to our day-to-day? After all, it’s never the wrong time for a little glitz.
