A Very Vintage Halloween

For some people, Halloween means figuring out which sexy human services character to be (nurse, police, firefighter...).  Or figuring out how to make a typically mundane job into something more...titillating (construction worker, anyone?).

I can still remember living in a college town many years ago and seeing a group of girls dressed up as Victoria's Secret angels...in 40 degrees-or-below weather, meaning: they were simply wearing lingerie and heels and angel/fairy wings, walking the streets.

Now, I am not going to be judgmental here: wear what you want. Enjoy yourself and your 20-year-old, pre-baby body. But we like our costumes to leave a little to the imagination, and of course, what better way to do that than vintage?  Not to mention that you can still wear/use many of these pieces after October 31st.

Here are four quick and easy costume ideas from the shop--just add a couple of accessories and you'll be ready to party! Or, you know, dole out candy to neighborhood trick-or-treaters, then pick out all of your favorites from your (sleeping) child's bag and go to bed with a sugar high...
