I am constantly wishing that I controlled the world. I'm not saying I want to be President of the United States or anything practical like that... I'm just saying that when I walk down the street and I see a woman wearing an over-sized t-shirt with manatees printed all over it, I wish I could do something about it.

Vintage Halloween Costumes
It's about to be September and so for my fellow lovers of Halloween that means it is time to start planning your costume! It's true we are all already grade A zombies but I have come up with some alternatives for this year. All of which can easily be achieved with awesome vintage finds instead of lame store bought versions or the tedious hand-made route. When you make your costume up out of vintage clothes even typical costumes can be much more awesome. So, I will start with some classics.
Getting a little more creative... how about Nancy Drew? This one is fun because you get come up with your own preppy 60's outfit (collared shirts/dresses, plaid, little sweaters, socks) instead of looking for specific pieces. Plus, you get do a 1960's hair-do! Then add some oxfords, a magnifying glass, a flashlight and notebook and you are ready to pester everyone at the party with investigative questions!
