The Book Of Mormon Inspired Group Costumes
At the last minute my husband and I made a spur of the moment decision to attend parents' weekend at USC. Too late to get football tickets, we decided to try to get tickets to see The Book of Mormon. Every time we visit NYC we look into getting tickets but the prices are prohibitively high.
Not that The Book of Mormon tickets in Los Angeles were inexpensive, but this time we decided to go for it and am I glad we did. Not only did I love the characters of Elder Price and the rest of the gang but I must admit, while watching the fabulous staged “Mormon Spooky Hell Dream” number I was inspired — I couldn't wait to get home and try to pull a last minute group costume together for you. I promise, it is not too late to order your Halloween costume online and receive delivery before next weekend's Halloween festivities begin. Continue Reading →
The Oscars Party Costumes, Formal Wear & Party Supplies
2017 gave us some great costume worthy movies. Think La La Land, Fences, Hidden Figures, and Hell or High Water. We searched through various halloween costume sites and were disappointed to find most 2017 hit movie characters’ costumes failed to make it into warehouses. But don’t worry! We have combed through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the costumes of some of our favorite movie characters and would make perfect Oscars party costumes.
One more thing >> if you continue scrolling down we have included movie inspired costumes from past years including the always popular Lobby Boy Costume from the Grand Budapest Hotel.

We have taken the time to comb through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the costumes of some of our favorite movie characters. Continue Reading →
Wear Outfits, Not Costumes
Just today we received an email from Shopstyle announcing that outfits rather than costumes are 2015's hottest Halloween trend. We wanted to scream – told you so! Every Halloween we feature real life clothes that can be dressed up for Halloween and then worn again throughout the year.
For example a must own little black dress like the one featured below, and available in sizes xs – 4x, can be paired with black cat bags, headbands, shoes, jewelry and cat face paint. And then after Halloween you can continue to wear the dress and all the accessories, just not all together.

We have already posted a few Fun Recipes for your Game of Thrones Party. Today we are focusing our attention on style inspired by Game of Thrones. Our friends over at Great Gets put together this fun pictorial which will not only get you in the mood for more Game of Thrones, it might even inspire your own fashion choices. Party Pretty!

Do you love Halloween but hate to spend money on costumes? We hear you! When I received an email from Shindigz this morning promoting their $3.99 discount costumes, I almost didn't bother opening the link figuring at that price the costumes would be junky leftovers from past seasons so you can imagine my surprise when I actually found costumes I like! At $3.99, I am 100% sure this Lady Gaga costume will be sold out by tomorrow. Likewise the Born Bad teen costume can't be beat. Not only
is it a great deal for Halloween, college gals should consider snapping it up just to add their costume boxes for Greek events & college parties – I don't need to tell you that every year you will attend at least one Angel & Devil theme bash and this she-devil is particularly cute!
Update! New Halloween Coupon from Shindigz!
I just had to share with you today's email!

Every once in a while I come across a picture or a photo that inspires me. This one popped up on my Facebook feed. Admittedly, I am extremely biased but my niece's gorgeous piercing blue eyes staring out from behind that incredible Venetian blue and gold mask made me wonder if this Halloween rather than donning the usual scary costume or sexy fantasy costume we might consider more refined, almost elegant Halloween attire. I must admit, after my truly scary Halloween experience being stalked by a crazy dressed in a Clockwork Orange costume, I get a bit freaked out by Halloween. Sometimes I believe Halloween is used as an excuse for people to “try on” behaviors and personae that are unacceptable in every day life. But I digress.
The point of this post is to suggest switching it up this Halloween – rather than spend a fortune on a one wear costume, raid your closet or better yet buy yourself that long coveted cocktail dress you can wear again and again and add a stunning Venetian mask. You can even create a couples Venetian mask that is both easy and fabulous or join forces with your girlfriends and together make a jaw dropping entrance. (This would make a great teen costume too especially if all of your friends wore different but coordinating masks!!) Elegance is forever chic and always sexy!
