The Ghosts of Halloweens Past

Hey guys! I'm finally back! I was working on a post that would explain the blog name change, but unfortunately, the Blogger app is terrible and it didn't save (even though I know I saved it.) Long story short, my old domain name expired and after going to great lengths (and failing) to figure out how to get it back, I finally decided to just purchase a new one. Out with Dressing Room Diaries, in with Freckles and Fashion

Ok, so I was going through some photos and stumbled upon a few of my past Halloween costumes and I thought I would share them with you. 

One year, for whatever reason, I decided to be a fanny pack wearing, (fake) cigarette smoking, PBR drinking, dirty, little hipster (left). I remember drawing a mustache on my finger and acting like I knew everything about everything, especially music. 

Then there was the year I went as a Parisian girl (middle) and I kept telling people I was a "lady of the night." Did I realize what I was really saying? Yeah, I'm not sure. But it was a super easy costume, as I already owned the black and white, striped shirt and black pencil skirt. I just had to buy a red beret, silk scarf, black gloves, and then slick on some red lipstick. Easy peasy. 

Lastly, I went as a sassy burlesque dancer (right). This costume was probably the most fun for me, because it was both cute and sexy. See, I don't usually do sexy. And to me, that's the best part about Halloween. Just dressing up and pretending to be someone different. Doing something a little out of your comfort zone. I got the corset from Charlotte Russe (it was fairly inexpensive there), the teeny tiny top hat, ruffle underwear, and feather boa from one of the Halloween stores, I think I already had the chevron printed tights and I used the black gloves from the Parisian costume. It was a little awkward just wearing underwear out in public, since I'm normally quite a modest gal, but like I said, that just makes it more fun :)

This year, I'm pretty excited about my costume! I'm planning a David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust type of thing! So, if it turns out well, expect to see some photos of me with a hot pink mullet, a thunderbolt across my face, and a very tight fitting outfit that I'm still not so sure about... 

What are your Halloween plans this year? Any cool costume ideas? Or if anyone has any David Bowie costume advice, I'm all ears :)
