Here’s the 411 on my Halloween costume this year: Clueless is my favorite movie of all time, but this is the first time I’ve dressed as Cher Horowitz (or any other Clueless character for that matter) for Halloween!
I know. I’m totally buggin’. It’s been a long time coming – 18 years to be exact. But this was the perfect year to do it because I haven’t had long blond hair since, well, 1995. I know there are wigs but those cheap ones from the costume stores aren’t worthy of a Betty like Alicia Silverstone, and I’m not about to shell out the ducats for a fancy one.
As for the outfit, I went into my rotating closet and took some of my favorite elements of Cher’s wardrobe and rolled them into this ensemble. I didn’t want to just recreate an outfit from the movie – after all, would Cher wear the same thing twice? As if! I was hoping to wear a different shirt, but Lucy said it was at the cleaners.
I wore my Clueless outfit over the weekend for Halloween festivities. It felt strangely natural, like I wasn’t even in costume. I might start dressing like this all the time. What do you think? Mini backpacks making a comeback?
Happy Halloween! Or whatever.
