WhatIWore: With military jackets all the rage this season, I thought it totally appropriate to make the most awesome costume EVER using mine. I paired it with a frilly blouse, leggings as pantaloons, cream tights underneath and then some shiny shoes.  The real ‘ta-da’ is the powdered ‘do. First, let’s talk about the details of the ensemble:

  • Military Style Jacket originally from ModCloth
  • Frilly Blouse also originally from ModCloth
  • Leggings free from old job
  • Tights originally from We Love Colors
  • Shoes originallyfrom Payless
  • Hat borrowed from Adam
  • Flag borrowed from Adam

Now, the best part - the hair! I created the style by brushing most of my (dirty) hair into a pony tail, and leaving the sides free. Then I took my smallest velcro rollers and did some little side do hickey thingies.  I pulled a little extra hair around the edges in an attempt to conceal the rollar.

Then… the POWDER!!! I just went nutso here and sprinkled it all over the place and lightly tapping my hair so it would soak in a bit.

I’m so pleased with the end result. This was the most expensive costume this week (due to the baby powder) and came in at $1.79. Total.

Who said Halloween Costumes need to cost a lot of money??
