Description

I was pretty excited this year for Halloween since I actually liked my costume, and was pretty thrilled that putting it together cost a total of $0.00 ;)

I got the shift dress a couple years ago at the Salvation Army and recently spruced it up with some vintage, gold military buttons and from there the costume just came together (with the help of my mom’s vintage lace gloves, my grandma’s old purse, some retro-ish heels and umm “flashy” costume jewelry hehe).

Material Notes

Hmmm… wide variety of materials, not sure what the dress is made of but I can tell it was hand sewn and I’m thinking some sort of cotton-blend fabric.
