Four Costume Ideas Based on A LBD (For the Procrastinating Mom)

My friend called the other day. Halloween was less than a week away, and she didn’t plan on getting a costume….until she found out the other Moms in her playgroup would be dressing up.  She wanted to know if wearing black and orange socks would be OK.  With an Old Navy Halloween themed tshirt. 


No, No, No. 

Halloween themed Tshirts are one step away from the dreaded Christmas sweater.  We can do better.  Let's start with an easy closet staple, the little black dress. 



Throw on a little black dress (any will work), black tights, black shoes.  You are now all in black – you could be a witch, Morticia, etc.  Or, draw two little lines on your neck in red lipstick — you are now a victim of a vampire bite!  Plus, the fact that you have put on a dress will make the occasion more festive, and you will certainly blend in with the other moms.

Or…add a bunch of animal print – cardigan, shoes, wrap, whatever.  You are now festive (all black for Halloween) and are giving off the vague impression of an animal.  Are you a cheetah?  Leopard?  Cougar?  Yes – most likely, if over 30, you are going as a cougar.  Add some obnoxious fake diamonds.  At least it will get a laugh from the crowd.
