California Girls Sweet Treats Candy Burlesque Tulle Rainbow Costume, Madame Gigi's
(This dream dress has actually already been sold. I can't help but wonder how the lucky buyer will accessorize it!)
Although I've always loved to dress up, I've never been on board with the macabre side of Halloween. As a kid I masqueraded as benignly girly princesses, flappers, fairies, southern belles, and one misguided year, a bird. (Sadly, no one knew what I was despite my feather-bedecked turtleneck and yellow sneakers.) In a nostalgic celebration of such glam getups, I scoured Etsy for frocks and finishing touches and came up with these five pretty pieces. So, whether you're costume ball bound or just taking a trip down memory lane, these stunners are sure to cast a spell.
