So y’all know my Halloween costume era came to end last year when both girls chose store-bought costumes for the first time.
While saddened, this happened to coincide with the husband and I attending Halloween costume parties where adults went all-out, so I could re-focus my energies in other ways, so the costume-making manifesto continued.
This past summer, however, Little Cutie came up with an idea for a costume that she didn’t want me to make but wasn’t readily available for purchase.
And she wanted to go as Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly!
Oh happy, happy, joy, joy.
Because we all know how much this mama loves and adores Madame Audrey.
And in the end what a perfectly easy costume to make for a little girl. All it took was a little black dress and satin gloves bought from a flower girl dress supplier; big sunglasses, a mini tiara comb, and tons of fake pearls from Claire’s; and a borrowed floppy hat from Mommy’s closet. Throw in a shopping bag from Tiffany & Co to use as a Trick or Treat bag and a croissant as a snack, and Little Cutie was ready to go!
Y’all should know she loves this ensemble so much I regularly find her lying on her bed reading a book, dressed as Audrey from head to toe. Cracks me up.
The pixie cut growth from shaving her head is rather perfectly timed for Halloween, don’t you think!
