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.

Get the Look: Modern Terrariums


Modern mini terrariums are a huge home accessory trend this year.

They're the perfect addition to a modern living space or office. Though I also love how West Elm has them displayed in a centerpiece. To get that look, incorporate these planters in different shapes and sizes, and fill them interesting details, like seashells or decorative rocks.

What About Drainage??

This is a commonly-asked question when it comes to modern glass planters. With plants like succulents which require little water, the moss and pebbles and layer of dirt are plenty to keep water from pooling on the bottom as long as you don't water too much. Succulents are so easy to care for, and they just happen to be on-trend as well this year; they're perfect to put in a modern terrarium. Here's a great video from West Elm on how to layer the elements in your planter.
