Last night, we had a costume party at the museum. I love a good opportunity to dress up, and this was no exception. Other than staying at work until 12:20, it was a blast! Don't worry, I took the day off today to recuperate.
* dress- borrowed from coworker with amazing vintage closet * "slip" underneath-- H&M black jersey dress* bobbed wig-- random beauty supply store near Herald Square * lace headband-- Lohemann's * pearls-- thrifted, gifted by great-uncle * cameo necklace-- F21 * moxie-- all mine *
Like a good historian, I carefully researched makeup trends of the '20s. I went full-on flapper, with Clara Bow lips , bright pink cheeks and heavy kohl'd eyes. More than the dress or the wig, I think the makeup was the most transformative part of the outfit.
Do you go all out for costume-required occasions? What was your best costumed look?
