Best Throwback Costume Ideas For You and Your Best Friend

As promised Jackie and I's Halloween costumes are here! 

This year, after much deliberation we decided to throw it back to the past and bring out some personal favorites from our childhood and beyond...Those are the best kind, right?

Again, I'm all about shopping my closet or pieces that I can re-use post holiday so these are easily transitioned from costume party to real-life (with the exception of a few items). 

First up, one of my favorite Halloween movies that I have been dying to use as a costume since Jackie and I started, Death Becomes Her. Ugh, I love this movie!

So naturally, I had to channel my inner wilderness leader with bold earrings, fabulous heels and my own spin on their uniform. Now, I'm ready to do  "The Freddy", throw a fancy party and go head to head with a skunk...

I'll admit I never fully understood the game, I'm more of a Monopoly gal myself but who can resist the allure of Princess Frostine and Princess Lolli? It's colorful, fun and ridiculously easy to re-create. Also, it's edible, kind of...
