Halloween Inspiration: The Golden Girls
Posted on October 25 2012
What better way to say 'thank you for being a friend' than to join forces with a few pals and pay homage to the sassiest seniors pop culture has ever known! It's probably no secret that here at Lille we love these loudmouthed grandmas (I've taken it one step further, immortalizing them in yarn), but whether you're drawn to the sarcastic Dorothy, naive Rose, promiscuous Blanche, or wisecracking Sophia, it seems that everyone has a soft spot for the Girls. These queens of primetime television sported some outrageous '80s fashion, making this costume idea easy and fun to accomplish. Of course, you can take a trip to your local thrift store and find a few gaudy pastel tunics and some stirrup pants, but we love the idea of going Miama-luxe. Think a glamorous silk dressing gown like the Pink Topaz Short Robe or Clara Whispering Short Robe layered over an eye-catching print like that found on the Ilda Driving Camisole. Throw on some bold jewelry (like the appropriately-named Golden Age Earrings from AK Vintage), get your hands on a few white wigs, buy a cheesecake, and you're set to paint the town gold!
