Happy Halloween, Stylenation! I'm generally pretty bad with Halloween costumes because I don't like buying things that I'll only wear once, and I just lack creativity in that area. This year I thought about what I could dress up as while still basically dressing like myself, and Liz Lemon from 30 Rock came to mind. Liz's style typically consists of jeans and sneakers, which I wear a lot more than this blog suggests.
I used this image as my guide. So I guess technically this would be my first copy cat outfit. I paired jeans, a t-shirt with a cami underneath, and a very old blazer (I had to dig it out of the basement, and I'm pretty sure the last time I wore it was while interviewing for my job in 2004!) with my Converse low-tops and an old pair of glasses. My fella described the costume as "Anne with glasses and a blazer." And that's pretty accurate.
I even have my own gold initial necklace, similar to Liz's.
Fella was similarly non-costumed, dressing up as Mark Zuckerberg. We saw The Social Network last week and both kind of laughed that Zuckerberg's 2003 college student style was pretty much how Fella dresses to this day. I guess once you find a style that works, why not stick with it?
Today we're headed to brunch with Fella's parents and then to Graceland Cemetery for a tour. It sounds a little morbid, but Graceland is full of historical Chicago figures, and it's lead by the Chicago Architecture Foundation so it should be pretty interesting. Have a nice Halloween, everyone!
