I don't like to dress up because I'm not a fun person. But for those who dressed up at work got to leave two hours early today and you know I'm all over that!!! But then I had to find a costume... I scoured the internet for days to find something that I had without having to buy anything new...because let's face it -- I'm a cheapskate. After lots of crying and Googling and digging through my closet, I finally found it. I gave you guys a little clue on my Twitter and Facebook page. Only three people got it right! Go Sacha, Berni, and Myly!!! I was Coco Chanel. (If you didn't get it, it's okay... A lot of people at work didn't either -- I got Hilary Clintons, Condoleezza Rice, and Liz Claiborne. But Diana got it right!!)
It was easy after I figured it out. I had an LBD, lots of pearls, and a quilted chain-strap bag -- but what about the short(er) hair? I got the hair idea from The Beauty Department. I braided the lower half of my hair and pinned it up, then I quickly waved and teased the top half and tucked it underneath in a low pony. I'll be doing this hairstyle more often! I loved having a short bob again!
What did you dress up as for Halloween?
