Red Head Costume Week: Florence Welch – Florence & The Machine

Nov 1, 2012 | 19 Comments

So, my final red head costume finishes today…  I wore this piece over the weekend and I brought it back out Halloween eve (last night) as it was the most comfortable one of the week!  Plus I got to be a little dramatic.

Style maven, Florence in Valentino

I found the perfect vintage dress (I. Magnin!) with flowy sleeves, lace trim, and in an ivory shade that I thought would be perfect to channel my Florence Welch look.  Wanna see??

First off, the drama got brought-en with this amazing new L’Oreal mascara I just started using.  I’m a mascara-hopper-around-er, and this one made the lashes pop.  Apologies for the iPhone action shot in my bathroom vanity to capture the length/mascara tube!!

All I did was pair my dress along with this little name tag I made…

Channeling my inner Florence!!

…and have Halloween casualties to show for it.  How’s about a bruise that looks like I have a zombie foot/ankle??  It’s like the makeup department on The Walking Dead did their magic.  I’ll save you the photo, because yes there is a photo…I had to take one to make sure it was actually real, and yeah, it’s real all right – but, was totally worth it!

Happy November!!  Also it’s my rad brother’s birthday…Happy Birthday D!! xo
