25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

5 Modern Ways to Wrap a Present



Holiday wrapping doesn't have to be all about red and green or snowflakes and Santa. While I do like to have more traditional wrapping underneath my tree to match the decor, I love to dress up my friend's presents with something bold and modern. It's also nice to have leftover wrapping paper rolls in designs I can use all year round. If you want to make these modern gifts a bit more festive, dress them up with glittered ribbon or a sleek ornament gift topper.

1. Chalkboard Kraft Paper Roll - Much like traditional brown Kraft paper, a roll of Kraft chalkboard paper is a versatile way to wrap a present any time of year. For the holidays you can draw on words like Merry Christmas and Ho Ho Ho, and you can even draw on a bow. Though I'd be concerned with using regular chalk. I'd hate for it to rub of. Instead use a white liquid chalk marker. Tie it off with red and white baker's twine.

 
2. Anthropologie Mod Geo Wrapping Paper - Geo print has been trendy in both home decor and fashion this year. It only makes sense it has translated to paper printing. I like how this geo print paper from Anthropologie has some silver shimmer to it. Pair it with shimmery silver ribbon for a modern yet festive presentation.


3. Neon Wrapping Paper - Bold color can look incredibly modern if you go with a bright neon paper. Tie it off with ribbon in a contrasting color.


4.
Anthropologie Marbled Wrapping Paper - A marbled finish in another trending print lately, and it's absolutely beautiful on paper. Just like the geo-print paper from Anthropologie, this marbled wrapping paper has some holiday shimmer to it. The sparkly string ribbon looks perfect with it.


5. Weathered Wood Grain Paper by the Paper Kit
- Faux wood grain paper is a top gift wrapping trend this season. I think it's a cool way to wrap a guy's gift, especially if you top it off with simple black ribbon. To dress it up for a gal pal, tie it with a velvet brown ribbon and a woodland creature ornament gift topper.
