Fashion Reverie’s Last Minute Halloween Looks

Halloween will soon be upon us! Did you get a last-minute party invite but don’t want to spend upwards of $75 on flimsy ill-fitting costume from Party City or Ricky’s you’ll never wear again? You may already have the ingredients for 5 quick and easy costumes for that fashionista in your closet.

Anna Wintour, the legendary fashion diva herself!What you will need:

  • Your chicest outfit
  • Sunglasses
  • A copy of Vogue magazine
  • A bobbed wig in light brown

Put together a look you love! Accessorize like it’s going out of style. Don’t be afraid to go over the top. Never take off your sunglasses off even at night. Carry a copy of Vogue and give insane fashion advice. See wacky fashion advice below:

  • Those shoes may your ears look sad
  • The Pantone color of the season is jelly
  • My favorite look from New York Fashion Week is Jeremy Scott’s living cat scarves. But how do you make the scarves stop purring?
  • Are you breathing? Oxygen is SO last season

Wednesday AddamsOh, sure you could do the traditional Mortica Addams, but everyone does that and besides people are just going to think you’re Elvira, mistress of the dark. Pick a different Halloween look?

What you will need:

  • Little black dress with long sleeves
  • White collared shirt
  • Black tights
  • Black flat shoes

Part your hair down the center and make pigtail braids on each side, if you really want to sell it, comb through some temporary black dye. Just know if you have blond or light brown hair, the black dye will take longer to wash out. Put foundation all over your face including your lips and skip any blusher.

Carry a headless doll and say disturbing (but funny) things in a flat monotone. Examples below:

  • I must feed the dog … to my alligator
  • Do you like my costume? I’m a serial killer. They look just like everyone else.
  • You have nice skin. It does a great job holding in your organs. It’s not even leaking.

FBI Agent

  • Professional looking suit
  • Sunglasses
  • White ear buds

Or you can make it a couples costume by added a red wig to create Dana Scully and Mulder. You’ll need badges for both. If you don’t want to make a trip to the costume shop, write out FBI on a 3×5 index card and put it in your wallet to flip out when people ask who you are, or clip it to your breast pocket.

For the White House FBI Agent, slick your hair into tight bun; only put one ear bud in. To make it a sexy White House FBI agent add a mini skirt and stiletto heels.

Say things into your wrist occasionally such as:

  • “President Trump wants to address the press. Swap out his lip balm with a gluestick”
  • “Emergency: Sarah Huckabee just realized her makeup artist is a drag queen who hates her guts”
  • “Trump is getting grumpy, who’s turn is it to put him down for his nap?”


Two versions of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”


  • Little black dress
  • Pearl necklace
  • Tiara
  • Elbow length gloves
  • Long cigarette holder, if you can find one



  • Man’s white shirt
  • Tassel earrings
  • Light blue sleep mask
  • Draw eyes on the sleep mask with a marker (gold if you have it, but black will do)


Audrey Hepburn’ character, Holly Golightly, was an AMAZING character. Reciting any one of her quotes from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is fun and sure to get you lots of laughs.

  • “It may be normal, darling; but I’d rather be natural.”
  • “What I found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany’s. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. ” 
  • “Wrinkles and bones, white hair and diamonds: I can’t wait.”
