A Glam Halloween Costume

Today's Fashion Friday / Friday's Fancies is Halloween themed! If I were able to dress up as anything and have no budget to worry about, I think a princess costume would be the way to go. I mean, who didn't want to be a princess at one time in their life?

And Seriously, check out this INCREDIBLE dress. Pretty sure if I owned that beauty I'd wear it daily.
Pretty Princess

Since this costume is dripping with diamonds, the sparking beauties are on my mind. I'm excited to be ordering an item from Kranichs real soon. They are a site that reached out to me and they have lots of beautiful items such as princess cut diamond engagement rings (to go with the above theme ;) and pearls.

What would your dream costume be? And what is your costume this year? Because I've been so sick there was no way I could go buy a costume so I'll be recycling two looks: Snooki and a flapper...separately, of course. Not Snooki as a flapper ;)

Love the beautiful princess outfit you created!!!

Snooki as a flapper would be hilarious! I’m sorry you’re STILL sick. I’m not dressing up. Our friends that threw the biggest, best Halloween bash six years in a row broke up and no one is willing to fill their shoes. Lame. I love your princess costume idea. Everything here is so pretty!

Lauren said...

Loving the glam princess look!!

Mo Pie, Please said...

This would be such a fun costume to wear! Happy weekend!

Jules said...

That dress is gorgeous and I wouldn't mind rocking the tiara either. I need to find an excuse to go to a fancy Halloween party next year so I can wear something like that.

There's also nothing wrong with recycling old costumes. I've definitely done that before :)

Julie said...

I'm so in love with your outfit. I agree totally that if I owned that dress I'd wear it everywhere. Ya know, like grocery shopping and out to dinner. People would only think I'm a little bit crazy!
So beautiful though!!
Hope you have a fabulous Halloween weekend!!

Ana said...

That's a great idea! I'd love to be a princess. Maybe I'll make myself a pink tutu and buy a tiara. :)

Love how you styled it! Happy Halloween!

Tyler said...

We are so lame and haven't picked anything out yet. I think we just have a lot on our plate that Halloween is the last thing on our minds. Gah! I LOVE the outfit! I would wear the dress every day too if I had it!

The City Boy said...

if you are going to be a true princess I think you have to pair a pair of louboutins with that dress though!

Jennifer said...

Ooo so pretty! I'm afraid Halloween is all about my Lil' Hunkie now! I haven't dressed up in awhile! Maybe it's time to change that!
Have a fun weekend!

Ashley said...

Snooki as a flapper...hahahaha!

I'm going to be a geisha, or a china doll, as that's a little easier. We shall see.

Yep, that dress is stunning :)

Carly said...

I was a flapper for last weeks Halloween party too! Ironically I am often a flapper for costume parties because I own this amazing fringe dress and it is just SO EASY. Throw on some feathers and red lips and you are good to go.
As a fellow Jersey Shore girl..I would love to see you as Snooki..post some pics.

I cannot believe I don't have a costume yet. I don't know what's wrong with me! I've been scouring the net and still haven't come up with anything good (and easy and cheap). I like funny costumes best, I think. I better get on it!

Julie (Little Pink Rain Boots) said...

Pretty outfit. Love the gems.
