The Halloween Inspiration Board: A New Jersey Housewife

Careening through life high on drama is best left to the ladies of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” But ripping off their Jersey girl style just for one night will do your bubbies proud! Lucky for you, it’s as easy as making a trip to my fair state’s biggest temple of worship (that’s “the mall,” for those of you in the other 49 states). Your instructions? Find something that clashes, find something else that clashes, press on your fake nails, and poof! You’re ready. But … but …, you might be thinking, zebra print and leopard print together? Really? Yes. Trust us. New Jersey‘s state motto is “go big or go home!” So grab your copy of Cop Without A Badge, and check out our picks. Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Matador

The other day I was walking down the street wearing a shirt with a frilly collar and black skinny jeans, and, suddenly, it hit me! If I put on a cropped jacket, some red knee socks, and carried around a red cape or blanket, I could fight bulls like there’s no tomorrow. Now, if only I knew someone with a bull costume, my matador ensemble would truly be complete. Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Anna Wintour

If you’ve ever wanted to be truly feared, we’ve got the costume for you. We’re not talking “scary” in the way that zombies or pre-Twilight vampires are. That’s child’s play.

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Amelia Earhart

Amelias are hot s**t right now. There’s me, of course, and then there’s Amelia Earhart, the legendary female aviator who will be immortalized in a movie starring Hilary Swank later this year. Amelia’s style was already super fierce and I love a costume that allows me to buy pieces that I could wear again. Check out how I would rock her high-flying style on the cheap(ish), after the jump, but know you could always spend more on some of these pieces so they last a lifetime. Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Maryann Forrester From “True Blood”

Didn’t you just love to hate Maryann Forrester in season two of “True Blood“? Author Charlaine Harris has one helluva imagination, but it was creator/executive producer Alan Ball who brought Maryann to life. Even though she was a rather annoying villain (surprisingly, though, she was less annoying than Sookie Stackhouse), none of this season would have been possible without Maryann’s maenad craziness. So why not celebrate “He who comes” by dressing like his bride for Halloween? Just remember to periodically raise your arms and quiver? How to get the look, after the jump!

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Nancy Spungen

We can’t help but be fascinated by Sid Vicious’ ill-fated (not to mention ill-mannered) girlfriend. She was kind of like the Courtney Love of her time, except way less rich, famous and, if you can believe it, even more tragic. To get in the mood, blast Never Mind The Bollocks, watch “Sid and Nancy” on repeat, and try some of these accessories on for size. Keep reading »
