Halloween Look: Take on Me

Happy Halloween! Today I am channeling Molly Ringwald and the teenagers of the 80s in a Gunne Sax by Jessica McClintock prom dress that I picked up years ago for $10 at Goodwill. I absolutely love the 80s-tastic detailing on this dress, with its sweetheart neckline, sequined trim, Swiss dots, giant bow, stiff petticoat, and basque waist. Smoky eyes, sculpted cheeks, bold lips, and big hair complete the look.

This dress makes me want to dance the night away with Jake Ryan. We'll bop around to Psychedelic Furs, New Order, Depeche Mode, Modern English, and Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark. What did you dress up as this year?

I dressed as a black hole...always gets a good laugh.

I would love to try Herman Boone one year though.

You totaly pull off a neo-Molly Ringwald though
