When I was in my teens, I didn’t want to dress like everyone else. I created some unique outfits by mixing up some vintage, new, and hand-me-down clothes & accessories. Not only was it a great way to save, but I could spend hours in the thrift stores, vintage shops, and of course malls. Today, we have the option of finding quirky outfits online, and today I thought that I would start the 1st day of October by sharing some Halloween daytime styles that you could wear to work, and for some of you, all year round. Many of these outfit picks are seasonal, so if you like what you see, get them before they are gone!!! Also, take advantage of the coupon codes and SAVE!
