Easy Halloween Costume Ideas Round Up

I love sites that feature easy ways to create entertaining Halloween costumes that don't require a huge investment of time or money.  Here's a list of places you can find some good ideas (and a couple of my own ideas for ya):

1. I suggest going as The Fashion Police- you can dress up as a police officer (or just a well dressed person) and carry- and issue- Fashion Citations:

2. The Fashion Police has ideas for Fashion Victim and Fashion Criminal and Fashion Blogger

3.  Thread NY has 10 fashion-forward ideas for you.  Think Katy Perry, Snooki, and Tavi.

4. College Fashion also has some fashion-y suggestions that are easy on the budget. Here's another of their lists.

5. These fashion icon-inspired ideas from Teen Vogue are fun- Karl Lagerfeld, Rachel Zoe, and Victoria Beckham are on the list. 

6. Fashion Bomb Daily also has some good ones.

7. Shine has a long list of easy (and yes, pretty cheesy) costume ideas.

8. You can always rely on Real Simple to help you "see what you can make with a clear umbrella and party streamers."

9. Cat: throw on black sweats, then add a black choker for a collar, a headband with ears, and a bendy pipe cleaner-type tail. 

(A rare shot of me without sunglasses.)

10. Here's another site full of easy & silly costumes, including this one: "Get an old box. Cut a hole for your head. Attach book, tissue box, and lamp. What are you? A One Night Stand!"

11.  This site shows real life pics of some easy costume ideas.

12. Yep, Real Simple has another group of ideas, including "gold digger" and "time flies."

13. Some DIY kid costumes that could be translated for adults.

Nope, this isn't it

In case you were wondering, no this isn't the brand spanking new site.  That will be on

Coming soon to an internet near you...

For the love of Marc Jacobs...

Best Text Convo of The Week:

E: Want to steal this woman's green MBMJ purse.  Doesn't even work with her outfit! Need to rescue it...

A: OMG. Grab and run? Or maybe just hunt down online and purchase?

E: Humph. I guess the latter is the one that keeps me out of county. Hate to pee in front of a crowd.

A: Yes, need to keep you out of county. Also: orange jumpsuits are not in for fall.

E: OMG. I do NOT wear orange well.

A: No one does. Is part of the punishment.

Handbag of the Day: Leather Tote

This is the Rumpled Tote.  It's on sale for $99.95 (was $198) at Anthropologie.  It's a roomy leather bag that will function well for those of you who need to carry your lives on your shoulders every day.  It comes in 3 color combos, but I think I like this tan/black one best, as it looks the most versatile.  And yes, that weird charm/keychain/thingy is removable.

Handbag of the Day: Colorblock Satchel

This is the Sloan & Alex Shea Colorblock Satchel.  It's $178 at Nordstrom. Unless you live in a cave, you know the handbag world is all about the satchel right now.  And color blocking is huge, too.  So you can participate in these trends with one sweet little meduim-sized handbag.  This bag will work well with fall colors- complimenting the more traditional darker hues and contrasting with the brights that are trending right now.  It's a great every day size, and the long strap and shorter handle options give versatility.  It comes in 3 color combos, but this one, described as "Ink/Violet/Forest", is my favorite.
