I didn't plan on it

but just because I wore my favourite vintage dress ever on Halloween, I thought I'd do a quick costume post. I went as Barbie, and you can see cameos by Eve (sans Adam), Hermione from H.P. and Tom Cruise in Risky Business.

This dress has been recycled through a few costume parties and seriously, it's my favourite vintage dress ever. I bought it at an awesome vintage store in Victoria years ago. Dark purple velvet, a hot pink bow and tulle? I was sold.

  26. I mean, I don't even think it's patently absurd to claim that you could wear that dress in real life. Like, not on Halloween. It goes make a pretty sweet Barbie getup though...
