It's That Time of Year

After much debate and too much reliance on Google (where I developed an intense and burning rage at the apparent requirement that women get all slutted up for Halloween-- I guess I missed the memo on that one), I have decided to dress as Holly Golightly for Halloween. There are two minor problems with this costume, which I hope my very smart friends will help me solve. The first is the dress. I do not own a black dress similar to the one Audrey Hepburn wears in the movie. I do, however, have a pink one that is very similar. In fact, it is vintage (from about the same era, no less) and commonly known among my girlfriends as "The Audrey Hepburn Dress". I also have two plain black dresses, but neither one has the feel of the era. Does the Holly Golightly character transfer to the pink dress? Can I successfully pull off the character if I go to Target, buy a cheap tiara and a pair of gloves (white? or black?), and then get one of those long cigarette holder thingies (what the heck are those called, anyway?) from some as-yet-unknown place? Or do I really need the black dress? Are people going to get this costume, anyway? I share similar coloring and body shape to Audrey Hepburn and can (I think) force my hair into an appropriate updo, but I am certainly not as elegant and lovely as she. No one on Earth is, really.

HOlly Golightly would wear whatever looked fabulous at that moment. Absolutely wear the pink.

Well, what immediately came to mind with your talk of a pink dress like that, gloves, diamonds, etc. was Marylin Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.......isn't that awful of me???!!!!

The pink sounds perfect, go for it! My sister agrees on the "must dress as slut" thing...it drives her nuts. She's going as a Mr Potato Head :)
