Mrs. Battington, Mrs. Huntingstone, Pete the Cat, and Mrs. Wishy Washy. To name just a few of the Halloween costumes that Mrs. Huntington has worn over the years.
I instantly knew I’d be a gypsy when I saw this skirt at Savers the other day.
$4.99 is not a bad price considering it fit perfectly so no alterations were necessary.
All I had to do was dig around my closets for the rest of the costume. I found this belt from a previous thrift store shopping trip.
This scarf would work for my hair.
Some sterling silver bracelets I inherited from my grandmother would add to the charm.
Add to that a couple of my grandmother’s ivory bracelets. (I love the intricately carved birds and flowers.)
Some brown wooden bangles.
A Forever 21 necklace that I’ve not worn yet.
A long necklace that’s been in my jewelry box forever.
A necklace from my friend, Judy.
Put it all together with a black hand me down shirt from my daughter and I’ve got an inexpensive yet fun Gypsy Halloween costume.
