3 DIY Halloween Costumes based on a few sweet movies from this year

Think about those years when you waited until the last minute, racking your brain for ideas while scouring through your closet frantically... Welll, we won't let that happen this year! 
Relevant pop culture events, books, movies, classics, poetry (The Raven, by Edgar Allan Poe), are just a few suggestions to get the wheels turning. 

We were thinking about a few sweet movies we saw this year - movies that had fun, easy DIY Halloween costume possibilities with inventory we have in the Boutique. 

Silver Linings Playbook
Some of you have felt the incredible coziness of our loungewear from In Residence. This irresistible attire has inspired a costume idea based on the zany "jogging scene" from Silver Linings Playbook. Annnd who say's you can't be comfortable and dress up as Pat Solitano Jr? (Bradley Cooper) - you could even convince your friends to go as Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence).

Lencería Boutique
Besides the coziness factor, there are at least two other perks to this set. 1. You can wear it after Halloween! 2. The sweatshirt has thumbholes. *Oh, were eco friendly here, so you'll have to excuse the missing large black trash bag... We'll leave that up to you ;)

If your feeling like dressing up, we thought a flapper inspired by the character Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrman's wonderful Great Gatsby adaptation (2013) would be swanky.

Warm Bodies

The last is in leu of the season, and what would that be without a little Zombie love? Warm Bodies melted our hearts (and the soundtrack was alive with music to boogie to). Speaking of boogying (without giving the movie away), the scene in the salvaged plane shows a little innocent zombie rescue where we see the back of her bralette (this reminded us of the sweet Maaji lingerie that we have - and even sweeter is the SALE)... Other than that the costumes are pretty much basic street wear (that you wouldn't have to scour your closet for...)
