The magic of Halloween entangles adults as well as children and is the perfect excuse for a grown-up party. The only problem is that it’s difficult to find time to plan a costume. One day, it’s October 1 and you have all the time in the world. Next thing you know, it’s October 29 and you’re SOL—or are you? There is an endless array of cute costumes you can pull together at the last minute. Not only that, but you can take the DIY approach and dress up as one of your favorite movie characters, using clothing and accessories that you can continue wearing the remaining 364 days of the year.

I rewatched Breakfast at Tiffany’s last night for probably the seventy-fifth time, but each time I watch it, I find myself more intrigued by Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) and her glamorous lifestyle. The film is not without its faults, but Holly’s charmed lifestyle is, perhaps, not without its lessons for the modern woman. I learned a thing or two from Holly that I’d like to share with you.
