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…

March Letter from the Editor


I've never been a big believer in luck. I believe what others perceive as good luck is often the visible result of a lot of hard work and perseverance that has gone on behind the scenes. Lucky breaks don't just happen to people who don't have the right foundation for it.

Do I feel lucky to have met my fiance? To finally have met the perfect person for me? Of course. But it isn't due to some single lucky break or some chance encounter, but rather the result of action, timing, and perseverance.

I don't believe in bad luck either...not as people often refer to it anyway. I believe bad luck is a phrase people like to apply whenever faced with negative consequences. And much like prayer, the hope for good luck takes our responsibilities out of the equation. Show me a "lucky" person, and I'll show you someone who has worked hard, made wise choices along the way, and has persevered through challenges. Show me someone who is "down on their luck" and I bet that person is the type to blame others, to refuse to do the necessary work, and who gives up as soon as things get difficult. Now, don't get me wrong; I know that sometimes bad things just happen to us, things beyond our control. But again, we become faced with the option of hoping for good luck to come along or choosing to work for it. And when all else fails and you can't immediately change your circumstance, you can at least work through it, to the best of your ability and with a good attitude...that is perseverance.

I suppose you could say I do believe in luck after all, though I beg to differ with the Mirriam-Webster definition. I don't believe it just happens to us by chance. Good luck is something we create. Let's create some good luck this month.
