Going to a Sock Hop + Have a Spooktacular Weekend!

Friday's Fancies Halloween Edition


I can't believe today is already Friday! This week pretty much flew by for me - which is great, because I've been looking forward to today for good reasons.  Not only is it my sister-in-law's birthday but we have Chicago friends visiting this weekend!  This afternoon I am going to see Paranormal Activity 3, which I am slightly nervous about because I had a scary dream last night.  Our friends arrive just in time for dinner and after, we're all celebrating the birthday with good live music and drinks!  

This week's Friday's Fancies is a little different than normal (is it obvious?!).  Today we're all creating a budget-less Halloween costume fit for the holiday on Monday - can you believe it's only a few days away? Are you sick of me talking about Halloween yet?!  I have never gone as a Sock Hop girl - is that even the correct term?  Something about this costume is appealing to me this year though.  I love the skirt + it looks very warm, as does the blouse.  They both look soft and comfy, too.  Usually, if I were to dress up as something traditional, I would spice it up in my own way.  For instance, when I was 21, I dressed up as a flapper girl (for like the fifth time in my life) but this time I was shot in the head, i.e., a zombie flapper girl.  The year before I was a fallen angel, complete with my own handmade wings (my 2 best friends were fallen angels as well, it was awesome) and we really amped up the dead factor.  So if I were to really wear this sock hop/poodle girl costume, I'd likely wear some zombie makeup just to make it feel a little more like me.  

What are your plans this weekend?  I'm not entirely sure what our weekend is looking like but I hope we get the chance to see lots of costumes and have a few laughs over my husband dressed up as Abe Lincoln.  He seriously fits the part so well.

Whatever you get up to this weekend, have a fantastic time!  Be safe and enjoy the festivities!  Also, be sure to check out all the other amazing FF costumes over at {long distance loving}!

A sock hop! I dressed up with a poodle skirt one year for Halloween and it was fabulous! I remember wearing my dad's varsity jacket with it!

You and my husband would get along great! He loves zombies. Like really really loves them. I on the other hand, love your outfit! Super cute!

I'd create a whole back story for this zombie costume. You are dead as a result of the evils of 50s drunk driving and a handsy boyfriend. Yes.
