Daisy Buchanan

Are you celebrating Halloween this upcoming weekend or on the actual day? We're heading up to LA to attend a Halloween party in Venice Beach before seeing the Presets at Nokia downtown. I was looking for a Halloween costume that could take me from the costume party to the concert and out again afterward, and decided upon Daisy Buchanan, as played by Carey Mulligan in the upcoming Great Gatsby remake. I'm borrowing a navy-and-black beaded French Connection dress, 1920s sequin headband and think it's the perfect excuse to give maroon lipstick a try.

See a few more photos inspiring my costume after the jump, and let me know who you're dressing up as this Halloween.

I can't dress up this year because I have a class that night but if I was dressing up she was first on my list on people I wanted to dress up as.

What a great idea for a costume, and definitely very versatile. Can't wait to see yours costume.

I watched the original movie for inspiration when I was invited to a Great Gatsby themed spa opening!

To buy a home having an FHA house loan the house actually needs to
meet certain standards quick loans most attorneys won't do that but "debt settlement" companies are notorious for that thing.
