Noir Essentials: A Very Boo!tiful Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner (I can't believe it's already the end of October -- where did this year go!?) It's my favorite holiday of the year and I love any opportunity to dress up (and I take my costumes very seriously.) I've been a My Little Pony, Lana (from Archer), Marilyn Manson, a zombified Alice in Wonderland...you get the point.

I always end up with a prop/costume/wig collection from so many specific costumes though, which is not very appealing to the average person. If that's not your thing, why not go with a DIY designer costume that doesn't have to be retired once Halloween is through? Using a site like Rent the Runway will allow you to rent designer styles and accessories to create a costume that is both creative and classy. Need some DIY inspiration? Look no further:

Equipment Star Signature Button Down Shirt + J.O.A. Millie Culottes + Pamela Love Star Age Collar + kate spade new york Over The Moon Space Cadet Clutch = Space Cadet

The options are pretty much endless! I'm keeping my costume a surprise until the day of... What are you dressing up as?
