Okay – this is an unusual post – the first costume for the blog! I am in Atlanta with my bookclub girls this weekend to see Madonna!! And we decided as a group to dress up for the concert. I didn’t do anything for Halloween so I got a little excited at the prospect of recreating 80s Madonna.
I dug around in my closet and this is the fun outfit I came up with. I took tights I typically wear with my boots, layered a skirt that I can’t believe I used to wear in college over top, put on a lace tank (that I really like and actually wear a lot currently) with a black bra underneath. Then I piled on every bangle bracelet and metallic necklace I have. Once I had that much I realized I needed a few completer pieces – so I headed to the mall with my sister and we found the lace fingerless gloves ($3 from Spencer’s), a pair of giant sparkly star earrings ($1.50 on sale at Forever 21) and the two cross necklaces ($3 each from Forever 21).
And to complete the look on Saturday night I’m going to make my hair crazy 80s messy/crimpy, tie a big black bow with panyhose as a headband and then wear my Wayfarer sunglasses all night.
It has been super fun emailing pictures of each of our outfit progress this week – I loved one friend’s Vogue 90s Madonna outfit with sparkle bra so much! I will post a group shot of us sometime next week.
