While Zach and I donned our Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce costumes early this year, we’re also attending a Halloween party in Banff! We didn’t bring our costumes so I am creating a last minute costume! I brought a black dress in my suitcase, so I headed straight to Pinterest! I thought I’d share some cute ideas I found incase you find yourself in a last minute predicament. It’s amazing how far a black dress can take you with minimal or DIY friendly accessories to create a killer costume!
