Last minute Halloween costume: Pretty Woman

Can you believe Halloween is next week? My Facebook feed is already filling up with friends posting pictures of their Halloween costumes. If you need a last minute Halloween costume, don’t fret. Shop your closet!

Every year, I love coming up with last minute Halloween costume ideas. This month, I’ve raided my closet to put together looks inspired by Amy Pond from Doctor Who and Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Today’s lat minute costume is a twist on Julia Robert’s iconic look in Pretty Woman.

Last year I got this cute J.O.A. Ruffle Mini Dress (c/o Shopbop) to wear for a pageant interview. I’ve worn it once since the pageant. While I wish my life required more opportunities to dress up, Halloween is a fun reason to dig out clothes you otherwise have no occasion to wear. Need a last minute Halloween costume? Grab a red cocktail dress and long white gloves and start channeling your inner Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.
To get this look, I paired my red dress with the Berkshire Women’s Trend City Cable Control Top Tight (c/o Lipton Publicity) and my new L.K. Bennett Sledge pumps. The white gloves were once my mom’s, and the gold wristlet is from Coach.

I curled my hair and twisted it into a bun then swiped on some red lipstick to finish off the look. This idea can, also, be a really cute couples costume. Bonus points if you can get your guy to dress up as a Sugar Daddy.

  1. This turned out so great! What a fun costume idea! I have a costume contest at my work this Friday so I’m trying to come up with something I can put together from my own closet too. I’ll see what I can come up with!

  2. What a great idea! I don’t usually dress up for Halloween but the boyfriend and I were chatting about what we would dress up as if we got invited to a Halloween party and I had no answer for him…maybe this would have to be it since I have everything I would need except the gloves! Easy enough!

  3. You look gorgeous! My friend’s 8 year old went as Audrey Hepburn last year – black dress, pearls, gloves…she looked adorable!

  4. I cannot believe Halloween is next week. This year really flew by. I like the idea of dressing up as Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s that’s one of my favorite movies. I’m loving the Pretty Woman Look! 🙂

  5. What for a lovely idea! I loved this costume and you look great! I never thought of a Pretty Woman costume, but it is really so sweet! I hope you have a nice day!
