Halloween this year couldn't have been more fun -- technically I had 2 Halloween celebrations (we partied on the Eve as well, post to come next). Of course I had to put on my best costume for my last Halloween in New York. I never believed in store-bought costumes, so in true DIY spirit, I made my very own fruit headpiece a-la-Carmen Miranda and put together a tropical Samba outfit for the big night out. I have to say I was very proud of my chiquita banana headpiece; it took tons of crazy glue and stitching and ribbon attaching and countless bobby pins and scarf wrapping to put together the entire look, but it was all worth it in the end. And now I have these plastic fruits from Michael's that I could use to decorate my dining table. Oh I miss Halloween already!
