It can always be hard to find the perfect Halloween look that is work appropriate, comfortable for all day wear and is still cute to wear out on Halloween. I always end up waiting until the last minute and getting something plasticy, itchy, uncomfortable adult version of a well known costume. This year though, I definitely think I upgraded my look.
I found this amazing Etsy shop that creates handmade costumes that are perfect for Halloween. Lola Nova makes these super cute Disney themed costumes that are tailored to fit you. While browsing for Halloween decor, I stumbled upon the shop and immediately loved her take on the snow mountain Anna outfit from Frozen. Made of a thick fabric that is also stretchy, it's perfect for all day wear. The cut also makes it totally work appropriate and doesn't have that annoying plasticy fabric that most costumes have. As soon as I bought the dress, which I did less than five minutes after I saw it, I realized that while the sizing might be a bit off so I quickly emailed Lola, the shop owner. She was SO nice and immediately offered to resize the dress for me to ensure it fit perfectly before sending. Seriously, so nice!
After I bought the dress, I immediately went to find one or two other pieces to finish off the outfit. Our office is big on Halloween, which means everyone dresses up. The dress is long enough that it's totally work appropriate, but our office can get really cold in the middle of the day. I found this awesome pink cloak on amazon that fits the Anna look. It's supposed to be for kids, but after looking at a few of the reviews, I saw that it was WAY too long for a kid and perfect for an adult. It's a little snug around the neck, but it will definitely keep me cozy in the office. Having red hair immediately makes the braids an easy how to so the last piece I needed was a pair of boots. I have these super cute riding boots from Modcloth that are great to finish off the look. I've never been so excited to get all dressed up for Halloween.
