Happy Halloween-How to Rock a Michael Jackson Costume and other Good costumes

Halloween- This is a long post scroll down and read to the very end!

It’s the time of the year when women parade around in the night scantly clad prancing in the streets from party to party masquerade-style. No, I’m not talking about Carnival, I’m talking about Halloween! When was the last time you saw a sexy woman’s costume that was not shamefully slutty? Probably a while, yet there’s always hope with a few per year spiced in the crowd of overtly revealing attire.

Ladies! Costumes should be sexy…not slutty! To often on Miami’s campus and other college campuses I have seen costumes that are terribly revealing. It makes me want to revoke the statement “if you got it flaunt it”  A more modified version of an outrageous costume can prove to be fun and original  instead of obnoxious. But, if you’re going for obnoxious or more provoking then it works. However, the most important thing is to be original. Halloween is fun! Don’t copy everyone else’s costume be creative!

Top 5 Classy Sexy Costumes

1)   1930’s flapper

2)   Pirate

3)   Egyptian Queen

4)   Flight attendant

5)   Sexy Princess

*Note a flattering sexy costume can run between $50-100.  The splurge is worth it!! Cheap costumes can and will look slutty and inappropriate.

Remember if you got it…flaunt it more tastefully!

This year the Michael Jackson costume will be quintessential. Recently during a fall issue of Haper’s Bazaar photoshoot model Agyness Deyn posed as the late musical legend Michel Jackson. She captured the essence of his spirit through style mimicking his poses and facial expressions. Deyn showcases Michel Jackson’s most memorable outfits:

Fall Trends…and Homecoming

It’s homecoming weekend….

It’s Friday—Officially the weekend. It’s time to showcase the best of your wardrobe that has been suppressed all week. Put the sweat Pants away, (and the Northfaces and Sperry’s too).

This weekend is homecoming! Break out the heels, dressy flats and party. Our school has very modest school (sports) spirit so I’m focusing on staying fly for the entire weekend.

First up, BSAA annual homecoming dance is in Shriver from 9p.m- 1a.m. The theme is the red carpet! Roll out the couture…….well at least DRESS UP!

So I’m suggesting some dresses and flirty fall styles to glam up the weekend.

Fall Trends for the weekend

First pair a flirty cocktail with this fall’s hottest commodity: the leather jacket

This look can transcend from homecoming events and parties straight to high street.

A rouched dress: Ladies! Folds are in this season. Pair up a dress with a short jacket…

On your HEELS…, ankle booties, sky high platform stilettos,  round toe pumps!

Enjoy the unseasonably warm weather, Drink up! And Don’t spill drinks on people…we spend too much time putting our outfits together.

Peace. Love. And fashion.
