Along with the excuse to collect free candies and overindulge on our favorites whether they be Hershey's, Kit Kats or Tootsie Rolls, another large part of the fun is in dressing up. On this one day out of the year, we can be anything we want to be! I know my day will be spent watching Classic Hitchcock films and dressing up in something vintage. In this post, I will be sharing with you a list of 4 of my personal favorite costumes to spice up your Halloween a bit (with an ample dose of Old Hollywood Glamour, that is), beyond the usual generic costumes you find at Party City, that is.
(1.) Holly Golightly - By far one of the post chic Halloween costumes on the list. After all, who can resist the opportunity to channel an imitation of the chic black gown channelled by Audrey Hepburn in the beloved classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's"? Along with a glittery tiara and a neck laced with diamonds and pearls, of course.

(3.) Lucy Ricardo - I Love Lucy- "Lucy Does a TV Commercial" - This costume will always remain timeless and many will applaud this, especially as nearly everyone has seen or at least heard of this classic episode in which Lucy becomes intoxicated while filming a TV commercial advertising a product called "Vitameatavegamin". After all who doesn't want an excuse to emulate this beloved redhead for a day?
