And I said, what about, Breakfast at Tiffany's?

My dear friend Bethany called me a prostitute on Halloween, to which I replied, "Hey!" Then I remembered, I was a prostitute for Halloween: Holly GoLightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's.

I realized that I will miss the whole Halloween extravaganza when I move to Turkey, but hey--I'm ok with sacrificing an American tradition for a plethora of new Turkish experiences.

About Turkey, since some of you asked, I'm still chuggin' along and applying, and some places are starting to look very promising. So I'll keep you all updated.

Anyway, onto my photos from Halloween!

We went to a street fair where there were multiple creative (and inappropriate) costumes. If you can name the costumes shown above, you get extra points. I was super excited to see them!

Bethany was Lady GaGa from the "Telephone" video, and Christian was an urban cowboy. I told Christian to watch out for gay boys that would inevitably hit on him. haha.

The following night (actual Halloween), I took my nephews out for trick-or-treating. Like the zombie makeup job I did on Brendan above?? He loved it. Anything to score cool aunt points.

How was your Halloween?


  1. SHUT UP! you look too cute. seriously! and it's the YUP YUP's!!!! My friend and her boyfriend were them last year and I was JUST watching their videos on Friday night and laughing my face off :)

  2. hahahaa...I should have known that you would know about the Yip Yip Martians :)

  3. I've never been good about planning & dressing up for Halloween. I felt bad because I completely forgot to buy candy for the kiddies this year... I was too focused on the World Series (Giants!!).

    Your outfit is cute! :)


  4. You. Are. Adorable. I love the outfit! I was a loser pants and did nowt all evening but watch The Addams Family & make butternut squash risotto. Which was DELICIOUS, by the way.

    Looks like you had fun though ;)

  6. What a classy costume! You're the perfect blond Audrey :)
    I'm a first-time visitor and I'm following you now! I'd love for you to visit and follow too if you like :)

  7. you make a beautiful prostitute!!! the day before halloween, i was talking with some friends about what we should all be, and really really really wanted this couple to be a whore and a fisherman. it only works down here in our silly little town maybe. but whorehouses are every where and the fisherman are the ones who frequent them!

  8. I LOVE her! Your costume was perfect. :]

  9. she said, I think I remember the film, and as I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it, and I said, hey that's the one thing we've got!

    Yaaay good 90s song :)

    LOVE the costumes!! You look stunning!

  10. I remember you mentioned you wanted to be Hepburn a while back, and I think you look smashing as Holly Golightly!!!

    I did not dress up because Halloween was on a Sunday, but I did go to a Haunted Forest! Whee!
