    I’ve seen a few repeats… But it’s good to be reminded… I just hope that whoever does them fully commits to the hair & everything… Who does Dorothy w/o signature braids at the side? Who does this Carrie Bradshaw look w/o the wavy curly hair? She looks great, but it’s Halloween! Get those rod curlers going!

    Last week, one of my friends/coworkers and I were in Wyoming on a business trip. We threw together a costume party in the hotel with several other of our colleagues and weren’t sure what to wear exactly. We ran to the dry-cleaner in town and asked him for extra props (i.e. Bags, hangers, and tickets) and we created our costume as “”Dry Cleaning”” by attaching two hangers to create a hat with a paper covering that said “”We <3 Customers"" ... It was a hit with the group and something definitely Cheap and Easy!

    Living in Michigan, you need to plan for the weather. This year, I am going to be a scarecrow. I crafted a burlap skirt and hat fashioned with fall floral pieces. I’m wearing it over skinny jeans and a pink flannel shirt to keep it girly and fun. I used the excess fabric to make a lions mane for my golden doodle Kylie.
