I'm at a weird place in my life. I'm not old enough to forego celebrating Halloween, but I feel like I'm too old to spend $100 on a cheap and/or provocative Costume-in-a-Bag type deal. Ergo, the only real solution is to create a costume which can easily double as a Not-Just-Halloween/Any-Day-of-the-Year ensemble.
Nobody personifies my ideal stylistic look more than Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, so I've created a reusable and inexpensive remake of her iconic outfit as the adorably sassy Holly Golightly. The sheath black dress can easily morph into a date night look, and the accessories (with the exception of the tiara, unless you're a pageant girl and/or proud princess) can be worn year-round, as well.
Tiara: Light in the Box, $22.79 // Necklace: J. Crew, $29.50 on Sale // Dress: Forever 21, $24.90 // Sunglasses: Fantas-Eyes, $20
Pair your outfit with black pumps, style your hair with a high sock bun, grab some black gloves if you've got them, and you're literally good to go! No additional purchase necessary. Score.
