Halloween Costume Inspiration: Basic Bitch

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Basic Bitch

Here’s what I’ve realized about basic bitch: I AM ONE. We all are. The list of basic bitch characteristics is lengthy and it’s pretty much impossible not to find some things you have in common with this much maligned archetype of supposedly boring femininity. For example: I love “Friends” reruns, SoulCycle, that new Taylor Swift song, and Florence, Italy, all examples of basic bitchdom according to the various definitions I’ve read online. So, why not embrace your own inner (and outer) basic bitch by making the typical Basic Bitch look your Halloween costume? Don’t forget to post tons of photos on Insta, hashtag #BLESSED! (Although, if you really want to be a Basic Bitch for Halloween, you should really be a SEXY basic bitch, because basic bitches love sexy Halloween costumes.) Keep reading »

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Taylor “No Its Becky” Swift

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Taylor "No Its Becky" Swift

I really kinda dig Taylor Swift. Her music is fun and sometimes, sadly, reflects my much-older dating woes, she’s smart and sassy, and she definitely has a sense of humor about her own fame. Case in point: when she wore this “No Its Becky” shirt out and about in NYC recently, a reference to an amazing Tumblr post that went viral, in which a photo of Taylor is identified as some random chick named Becky, who used to be happy and popular until she snorted marijuana at a party. And what do ya know, this moment in random pop culture memery is the perfect inspiration for any Swifty in need of a Halloween costume. Just don’t forget to bring Olivia Benson! Read on for details!

Friends Nick Thomas and Steve Jandick begin prepping their Halloween decorations a year ahead of time.

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Mary Poppins

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Mary Poppins

As I kid, I went through a phase where I watched “Mary Poppins,” starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, on a very, very regular basis. Mary Poppins was everything. Sassy, smart, opinionated, matter-of-fact, imaginative and beautiful. Come to think of it, my management style — “ruling with an iron fist of flowers,” as I put it — is inspired by her approach to child (and parent) rearing. Anyway, “Mary Poppins” is also on Broadway right now, so why not dress up as everyone’s favorite governess for Halloween this year? Best of all, a lot of these items you can wear again as separates.
