Halloween Costume Idea: Dorothy From The Wizard of OZ
Looking for a Halloween Costume Idea? Dorothy from the Wizard of OZ is both easy to put together and happens to be one of our favorite looks! This costume is versatile and can also be worn long after Halloween. Oh, and did we mention- it's perfect for any budget!
A beautiful Dress from Modcloth, some blue hair bows, and our ruby Red Aerosoles Jackys are pulled together in this modern Wizard of Oz ensemble!
This Sketching Stories Dress from Modcloth has the right color and shape for Dorothy's Dress. We love the classic 50's-style shape of this dress especially the cinched neckline. The bell-shape skirt of the dress is very flattering, slimming down the waist-line and is complimentary to any body type. Wear this dress in the spring/summer months with flip-flops, flats, or wedges for a flirty, fun, new look.
Having the perfect shade of ruby red shoes is Vital to pulling off a Dorothy costume, after all, it's ALL about the shoes! This is why we chose the Aerosoles Jacky. The rich red coloring of these shoes gives off a sparkling shine like that of the famous ruby red slippers. The bows these shoes are the perfect topping for the look too! Wear these after halloween to add a splash of color to any black dress or to accent with a red top or red purse. Red is the color to look out for this fall- so nab these Jacky's while you can!
These robin's egg color bows are easy to clip on to the end of your braids to tie the outfit together. Not only are they a cute accessory that we are noticing more and more in the fashion world (which I think links back to lady GAGA), BUT these bows are only $2.99 on Amazon- seriously! Grab a pair of these bows online and if you really like them, you can buy them in Sage green and pink too!
We love the idea of adding ToTo for the final accessory! Of course, the outfit is defined with of with out Dorothy's canine companion. However, we found this little guy on Amazon for $14 and that includes the basket - so we figured- why not?
