halloween costumes 2



What's more glamorous than dressing up as Marilyn Monroe?
White dress, white heels, blonde wig, red lipstick & nails.
 
 



It's time to start planning your Halloween costumes, ladies!  And while it's super easy to purchase a costume online or at a store, I have a feeling that since you're visiting Lovely Undergrad... you're looking for something a bit more creative, thrifty, and lovely, huh?  Last year I shared lots of cute costumes I came across on Polyvore.  But to save you the time of creeping back through my archives, I've rounded all of them up in this one single post.  


 
Stay tuned for upcoming posts that are sure to inspire you some more!  And if you're pulling together a super-creative or on-a-tight-budget (or both!) costume, email me and let me know about it!

Great ideas! Inspired me!
I'm going as Marilyn one night of Halloween! My mom is making my dress. We got the fabric and pattern at Jo-Ann Fabrics all for less than $10. I cannot wait to do my hair and makeup for it! These are all such great ideas!
The Pikachu costume rocks the best, I'm sure that people will love it. Thanks.

That Pickachu costume is the best of them all since there are tons of fan and collectors of pokemon.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
