Growing up, I remember realizing that getting dressed every morning could feel just as fun as playing dress up with my costume boxes, and that’s how I got lured into a love affair with expressing myself through personal style.

My mom used to make the BEST Halloween costumes (wish I had more photos with me!) and I remember showing up to neighborhood parties and trick or treating in the most intricate and original versions of Tinkerbell, an Egyptian princess, and I Dream of Jeannie (for a few years in a row).

I never felt anything but fabulous, and loved knowing that no one would ever show up wearing the same thing… Maybe that’s where I can attribute my love for vintage and using it to toe the current trends?

I’d love to hear about your own favorite Halloween costumes, and I hope you have a wonderful day filled with sweet treats and hardly any tricks!!

P.S. – Find out how I’m going to be dressing festively today here & follow along on instagram for a peek at some of my favorite sweets!

    ohh so cute!! i love your accessorizing! After I read your post, I asked my mom to send me some pictures of my own favorite Halloween costumes…the dress up clothes basket was never so much fun as Halloween! I was Laura Ingalls Wilder one year, and my favorite, my sister and I were flowers….we look like the dandelions from Alice in Wonderland! (-:
