I would lie if I told you I am happy it is autumn. I love autumn, don’t get me wrong. I love the crisp air, apple desserts, pumpkin carving- however it means winter is around the corner. I live in beautiful New England – with colorful changing leaves, and many festivals dedicated to autumn traditions. I look forward to Halloween, but as soon as Halloween passes then the dark and cold winter falls upon us. I hibernate until mid-March.
That being said let’s talk about my pinnacle of the autumn months- Halloween! The only thing I really look forward to besides Christmas over the end of the year. It is my favorite holiday. Whether its people watching in Salem, MA, or dressing up and partying on Bourbon Street, I have made the last few Halloweens a day to remember for the rest of my life.
As a child we always dressed up and walk to our neighbors houses. We live in a very rural area so the houses are very far apart. As I got older, in high school, my aunt would help me make my own costumes – and that is what started my love of Halloween. Dressing up as my favorite characters and the first way I had learned to express myself outside of the box. I was Snape from Harry Potter my senior year of high school, due to my love of Alan Rickman. The most in depth costume I had created was a bobble head nurse from Silent Hill. I had made a paper mache mask and dyed a nurses dress. My personality is to be different and to be creative. I am never content just doing something- I have to pull my all into it.
This year I have no extravagant plans but to spend Halloween with my mom and aunts- to spend time at a restaurant together down on the CT Shoreline. We all plan to dress up- so the question I had posed to myself was… now that I am a fashion consultant how can I make this a fun LULAROE Halloween?
I decided to put my thinking cap on. How about LuLaRoe inspired Halloween costumes? I quickly rushed home and went through my inventory. Like a kid in a candy shop I imagined what each piece could possibly turn into with a few cute accessories. The cheshire cat, a cow girl, clowns.. you name it I have created it. Why buy a costume for $40+ when you can buy a dress or shirt/leggings that you can wear all year? And when people ask about it, you can proudly say you are wearing LuLaRoe!
Curious to see what my creative juices came up with? Come head over to my VIP group!! We are also hosting a giveaway at the moment. Stay tuned to see what costume I will be wearing this year!!
