10 Awesome Dresses You Can Use For Halloween (And After!)

Halloween is fun and great and wonderful… until you end up spending $100+ to cobble together some costume you’ll wear for a single drunken evening before it sinks to the back of your closet, never to be worn again (those whiskey stains don’t help).

Villainess Style: Dress Like Daisy Buchanan

Villainess Style: Dress Like Daisy Buchanan

Spoiler! Sweetheart, you just don’t get to commit hit and runs and still qualify as a good person. I know that when it comes to Daisy Buchanan (played by Carey Mulligan) that is really confusing for some people. Nonetheless, that is true, even if your voice is so soft and gentle and lovely and you look like the cutest blonde flapper ever.

Carey Mulligan Is Lovely And Ethereal In Harper's Bazaar UK

In the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, Ms. Mulligan poses for a series of lovely, seasonally appropriate photos: there are flowers on the trees and on her clothes, and she even wears a pair of rain boots in one shot. Her beauty look is fittingly soft and natural, and the accompanying article is full of cute tidbits, like the music she listened to to get pumped up for scenes in The Great Gatsby (LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem”) and the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio wrote her notes and signed them as Gatsby.
