Fun with Fashion Friday…Halloween Costume Ideas

I have always been a little annoyed with females who use Halloween as an excuse to dress inappropriately.  I’m down for being a little risque, but there is a line.  Last year I was in downtown Burlington, VT on Halloween weekend and I really wanted to shout out “Put some clothes on!” to some of the girls walking down the street in their itty-bitty “costumes” they were hardly wearing!  There is also a time & a place…If you go out in public (versus a friend’s house party), it is also important to think about what you are wearing.  For example, if you ran into one of your coworkers in the costume, will you be able to look him or her in the eye on Monday at the office?  Just something to think about.
