Now that I’m in my thirties [that’s a bit weird to say] I am absolutely ecstatic that I no longer have to force myself into wearing those slutty costumes of Halloween past. Sure, I used to squeeze into them just like any other 20-something year old, but now I don’t have to :) I can dress as classy and as cute as I want and you know what? No one can stop me! MUAH-AH-AH-AH-AH!
And that’s what’s beautiful about getting a little older = you’re more sure of yourself. You don’t need to be exposed, have cleavage, or get Joe-Smoe to think you’re “real hot” in a costume. You’re better than that! You’re a chick who knows her worth, knows how to dress, and knows how to create a costume using items already in her wardrobe ;) that’s right! You can make a Halloween costume on NO budget.
My Halloween costume didn’t require multiple trips to the craft store or large amounts of insanely hot glue. I didn’t have to put myself through a cleanse, complete a bunch of side sit-ups, or even buy a special bra for that matter. Instead, I simply took an inventory of what I already owned and used my imagination to come up with . . .
Meow! I’m a tabby cat, y’all! Purr! Haha. I know this isn’t some groundbreaking, new costume. However, it totally gets the job done for Halloween. I’m technically an animal. It’s cute AND classy. I didn’t spend any money on it. PLUS, it’s so my individual style! I mean sure I’m more of a dog person in real life, but I won’t tell if you don’t!

So when it comes to dressing up for this kooky-spooky, little holiday, don’t feel the pressure to conform and dress trashy like everyone else! Strut yourself proudly, and if slutty be what you need, than have at it :) but at least try to challenge yourself in creating a barely-there look that’s from your own closet. No one else will have your costume and your wallet will be more ready than ever for some real shopping come Thanksgiving.
