Haute Halloween

Coco Chanel style

I rarely shop for my Halloween costume, opting instead to create one from pieces I already own. This year I paid homage to the ever-classy Coco Chanel. All I added were these two toned pumps for $4, and the quilted leather bag with chain strap for $15, both found at the Salvation Army! Of course, the brown wig (on hand from past costumes), black hat and fake cigarette were key in completing my Coco costume. Happy Halloween!
