Hey cool cats! It’s almost time for Halloween. Ive been seeing a lot of great ideas on Etsy, like this handmade Owl Mask:
This month, my theme is 50’s Housewife — how to dress like one, and put your vintage look together.
Want to be a 50s housewife for Halloween but aren’t sure where to start? Here are some ideas to get you going — Click the pics to get to the seller’s Etsy store 🙂
This dress is functional and sweet, fits the 50s housewife look, and is nice and bold, perfect for a costume!
Get some simple red lipstick. Cherry red tones often look best on people with very light complexions. Choose darker wine or plum shades for darker complexions.
A cardigan like this will do the trick!
Wear shoes in this style – functional and ladylike:
Tie a scarf in your hair and you’re looking good!
Other things you can add to your 50s Housewife costume:
Sweater guards or sweater clips, pearl necklaces, retro button earrings, a bouffant wig, cateye glasses, a retro apron, or maybe a flower in your hair 🙂
