Daisy Buchanan - Halloween Costume

6:53:00 AM

Oh why hello! It has been one heck of a week celebrating Fall, Halloween and the newest month, November!

I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked from my costume, but I think you will get what I was trying to accomplish from the ones below.

It all started with this little inspiration. I've always wanted to dress up as a flapper and one time in college, I quickly put together a black dress and a feather headband for a house party but I never actually went all out with hair and everything. So this year, I thought I'd go a  la Great Gatsby and dress up as Daisy! The end result - I loved it.

So after some much needed "Pinteresting" and "Googling," I settled on finding a lace dress and lots of fun gold and silver accessories. Good thing was, most of this was already in my wardrobe.

I found the dress below at Forever21 for a mere $24.80 and scooped up the headband for $3.80. Oh, how I love Forever21. I then stopped at the craft store and picked up a few feathers that I later hot glued to the headband.

I watched a YouTube video on a simple updo style - this one and I am actually pleased at how it came out! It was definitely easy to do. I'm sure if I had given myself a little more time, I would have been able to perfect it better but regardless, it came out great! What do you think?

Add some pearls and accessories and bam, Hello Daisy! 

Hope you all had a very safe and Happy Halloween!
