In college just about everyone is broke. So for Halloween you may not have the money to buy a costume. The solution? Get creative in your closet.
Halloween is on a Monday this year and everybody is dressing up for class and I have an in dorm Halloween party I co-organized. So I ran to my closet and found some brown wedges, bell bottom pants, a flow-y white top, leather vest and now I am a hippie. I did make a flower headband, but materials only cost me three dollars from Wal-Mart.
Some other ideas I could have used:
Cowgirl- if you’re from the south chances are you can pull this one of no problem.
80's girl- all you need is an off the shoulder sweater, tights, and hairspray.
Athlete- if you play a sport put on your uniform and your set.
Sailor- A striped shirt and some Sperry’s would do.
I have a friend from back home that used a clock from her house and some string to make the flava flav clock chain and she was ready for Halloween.
If you don't get this costume you were robbed of a great childhood. I don't know were I would be without the family tradition of watching "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown"
P.S. I plan to have pictures of my costume up soon for all to enjoy!

Today I ran across some before and after pictures of The Candy for Kohl’s ad with Britney Spears. Before I show the pictures I want to explain why I decided to blog about them.
The fashion industry, to me, is this beautiful unexplored terrain, and although it looks amazing, I know it has flaws. The specific flaw I'm referring to is the idea that all women must be shaped like a stick. Not all women are a natural double zero and I believe as long as you do your best to live healthy and active your body is fine. In college (and high school) many girls have body image problems. One student at UCLA even swore of mirrors for a year to fix her body image before her wedding. If you want to read the UCLA students story click here:
So to sum up my rabbit trail, even models and celebrities do not look perfect and wake up every day with a natural glow about them. Here’s proof:
