Thinking of fun costumes for couples is one of my favorite things to do. Alex could be one of the squarest people I know so it was pretty fitting to come as a pair in this getup. The sad thing is, this was the least favorite idea I would've ever wanted to do. Really, school girl? We were going for a professor/school girl or teacher/student deal but instead I think we looked like Harry Potter... at least he did. Putting this whole ensemble was the most annoying thing only because it literally kept changing and everything I initially bought-- think racy/sexy--was inappropriate for the house party we were attending so I had to revamp almost everything from scratch. Basically the skirt I purchased, the shirt I wanted to wear that only came as a set with another skirt that I didn't plan on using, then deciding I'd just go for a blazer, being satisfied with the look only to find out the length of the skirt was way too short for the PG-13 party and after celebrating Halloween in Vegas last year, I was disappointed. Luckily, we improvised pretty well and found some neat patches to match, I got a skirt from Maverick's school's lost and found bin that they were disposing, then rushed to my seamstress to have it hemmed. I got a ruler, glasses, and one of his design books-- I originally had a Kama Sutra book for shits and giggles but of course that had to go! And overall, despite every inconvenience, I think our final outcome was perfect:
