With Halloween being on a Monday this year (2016), that means the weekend before is going to be jammed pack with fun festivities and parties. Wait, what am I talking about, is it just me, or does Halloween seem to be getting bigger and bigger every year? With that being said, you need to look your best, get out there, and have fun with your costume, all while looking classy.
The main pieces below come from renttherunway.com. I love the idea of being able to wear something designer and beautiful for one night, for a portion of the cost, and give it back without feeling guilty if you do not wear it again. The other extras come from Amazon. You can always find extra historical Halloween costume pieces, whatever it may be, on Amazon. Plus the nice thing about these retailers, they are quick, so order today if you still plan on getting a Halloween costume before Halloween!
