Mrs. Mia Wallace

There is nothing easier in this whole wide world than to make your own Halloween costume, if you only have the right inspiration. For three or four years running, mine was Mrs. Mia Wallace of Pulp Fiction fame, usually BEFORE her, um, incident. It's so straightforward that you probably have at least half of the elements you need in your closet already!

For example, you're going to need a simple pair of black pants--preferably with a mild crop, but since those can be hard to find this time of year, a nice tuxedo pant will suffice:

Then you need a plain white tailored button-down shirt:

The shoes are simple--just a pair of gold flats (or any flats, really, if you don't have gold):

To top it all off, get yourself a Peggy Sue wig:

Now you're all set to spice up the campus Halloween dance, Tarantino style. And the best part is that even if you have to go out and buy each of these elements, at least the first three are easily justified as necessary closet staples. Enjoy!

Buy the pants through White House Black Market for $88.00.

Buy the shirt through Victoria's Secret for $28.00.
