Well its almost that time of year again folks, time for pumpkin flavored and scented everything, bulk bags of candy being put on every end cap of your local markets, and terrible expensive prepackaged costumes. Honestly I have no idea why Halloween costumes are so expensive, because lets get real the quality of fabric choices and over all construction is sorely lacking, and if that wasn’t enough you’re only going to wear this outfit once! This is why for the next couple of weeks I am going to be posting Halloween costume ideas made from pieces that you can wear again and might even have in your own closet.
This week’s look is Belle from Beauty and Beast…Belle has always been my favorite Disney princess so pulling this look together was quite a bit of fun for me.
White Blouse: Cold Water Creek/Similar
Dress: Pollypop Yes my dress isn’t quite the right color but I was working with what I already had…However the link I provided is to the same cut of dress but its a better shade of blue.
Apron: Vintage/Similar and honestly a waist apron would be easy to make on your own.
Book: Carry around your favorite book, hey it could make a great ice breaker!
I really hope you all enjoyed this post! What are your thoughts on it? Who is your favorite Disney Princess? What was the best costume you ever wore? I’d love to hear from you. Have a happy Friday!
Let me clarify that this is a “Texas fall look” we’re not as lucky as you people who are getting to wear tights, cardigans, and the like. It’s still in the 80’s here but after 100+ this feels pretty darn nice. So here’s the look.
Ermagerd Permpkins! You guys pumpkins mean it’s fall! Clearly that makes me outrageously happy!
Basically this entire look is from older items in my closet so just assume the links you are getting are not the exact thing.
