Sexy Dinosaur and Dragon

Sexy Dragon


By now you’ve pretty much seen a TON of DIY Halloween costume ideas from us, and believe me, they are so much more fun to make than buy readymade at the store! I truly believe that the most fun of Halloween is at the getting ready part! Some of the costumes we’ve put together have been fun, sexy, silly and like our last post, pretty hilarious. If you’ve learned anything by now, it’s that you can make anything sexy. You can even become a sexy Donut by wearing a pair of beige or brown leggings, a gold or yellow corset, and wrapping a pink chiffon scarf around your neck that you’ve bedecked with tube beads to look like sprinkles. Voila, sexy donut! And hilarity ensues!

This costume is one we haven’t yet come up with (don’t know how this one got missed!) but our Emerald Green Satin Corset can be paired with the popular “mermaid leggings” but instead of seashells in your hair, add a couple of spikes or dragon headband and boom you’re a dinosaur! Or lizard! Or dragon! Long nails, lizard-y earrings can complete the look. All you need is a green sequined embellished clutch and a pair of sequined black heels and BOOM you’re a magical reptile!

Modest Genie Costume

Modest Genie Costume


As much as Halloween can be a fun excuse to wear something sexier than usual, sometimes you have to try to be modest. Especially if you’re the designated door answer-er! Stay covered up, yet sexy in this genie costume. First, find a pair of layered shimmery harem or belly dancing pants. Pick up the accents in the pants with a gold or yellow satin corset. It will shape your body, boost your bosom and add a bit of sex appeal without showing too much skin! For extra assurance in covering up, add a silk chiffon scarf to wrap around your shoulders when you answer the door. Slip on a pair of shimmering crystal embellished heels and finish with a matching rhinestone crusted clutch bag!

The Chicastic Guide to CLUTCH PURSES


A clutch is, simply speaking, a small purse. It is usually built around a frame opening at the top, held closed by a kissing lock. The clutch has evolved from this simple design and now includes the envelope, fold over, minaudière (box), frame, and wristlet.

The clutch was designed to hold only the necessities, such as a cell phone, driver’s license, lipstick and car keys. There are an infinite number of designs and styles, and they range in price from $10 to the thousands. The clutch went out of fashion in the early 19th century, but came back to popularity during World War II. They’ve remained popular to this day, mostly as evening and formal bags but there are plenty of women who use them for daily use.

Here are a few of the most popular styles of clutches.

1. Envelope Clutch

Though it is designed with a more casual look, don’t let this little envelope fool you! It can be used for formal wear as well! Depending on the materials used, an envelope clutch can transition from work to an evening out!

2. Flap

Similar to the envelope clutch, the flap closure clutch is the most popular style for bridesmaid accessories.


3. Fold Over

The Fold Over clutch is almost exclusively a casual bag. It has a zipper top that folds down to half its size when closed.

4. Minaudière

Also known as a box clutch, this bag is the most popular for very formal events as they can be decorated with a myriad of objects such as knuckle duster handles, crystals, faux flowers, pearls, beads, leather…anything you can think of!

5. Frame

The frame usually has a hinge opening with a clasp or kissing lock, and the body is usually made of fabric in a pouch or rectangular shape. Sometimes the body is reinforced with a flexible yet sturdy lining.

6. Wristlet

All frame clutches can be wristlets, but not all wristlets can be frame clutches. It is basically a small bag or wallet with a small strap that fits around your wrist. This bag is a favorite for running errands or tossing in a bigger bag to use later.

Create The Perfect Backyard Wedding


Creating a backyard wedding is a great way to save money, especially if you want a small ceremony. But realize that a backyard wedding still needs as much planning as a traditional event. Here are some tips to make sure your day goes smoothly.


1. Invitations
Because your backyard may not be able to host a lot of people, you can create DIY invitations or even have someone handwrite them for you! Calligraphy artists can work wonders with pen and ink, or if you are artsy and prefer to be more hands on, you can create your own! There are plenty of online printing companies who specialize in invitations. Just don’t do an e-vite!

2. Rentals
Rental companies have everything you need these days. They are a one stop shop for everything you need for an event. A tent, lighting, dance floor, tables, cloths and chairs are the minimum you would need. You may think you don’t need a tent but it will come in handy if it rains or if the sun is beating down. Your guests can move the chairs from the ceremony area to their table.


3. Flowers
To save money, choose flowers that are in season. It wouldn’t be wise to choose a summer blossom in the winter as they will most likely have to be brought in from warmer areas and therefore more costly. For centerpieces, use large clear jars for flower bunches at each table.


4. Catering and Dessert
Find a catering company that specializes in buffet style food. This way you won’t need a service team other than those behind the table. Or if you have a particularly small event, you can have the company deliver and set up the food only. For dessert, cupcakes are a popular choice and they can be decorated in your wedding theme colors! Plus you’ll be able to have more flavor choices to make everyone happy! You can also have your bakery create a small bride and groom cake for you to freeze until the next year.

5. Drinks
Save more money by buying drinks (even alcohol!) at your local bulk grocery store. Beer, soda, bottled water and wine are wedding staples.


6. Table Settings
Instead of having a formal place setting, your catering company can provide durable and even elegant looking plastic utensils and plates.

7. Bridesmaids and Groomsmen
An easy and affordable option for dressing them is to have the bridesmaids pick their own dresses in a color of your choice. The groomsmen can wear suits in the same color family (dark blue, black, brown, beige, etc.) For fun, have them wear socks in the color theme of your wedding. They can wear the same color tie to keep their looks cohesive. The bridesmaids can wear the same style of wedding heels or carry the same clutch bag to tie them together.

8. Photography
Saving money in other areas will allow you to splurge in wedding photography. This is one area you don’t want to skimp out on. These memories are priceless so make sure you hire a photographer you click with.

9. Bride and Groom Style
Your personal look can be as ornate or as simple as you like. To save money, look for off white or beige bridesmaid dresses instead of a bridal gown. You can even choose a lace sundress if you want to go a little more casual. Have a friend do your makeup or do it yourself, and keep your hair simply styled, with a crown of flowers or a braided up do with crystal bobby pins tucked in. Splurge on some beautiful crystal heels for a touch of glam for the ceremony and photos. You can change into a pair of flats or cute sandals for dancing! Don’t forget your wedding clutch! Your groom can wear one of his own suits, but invest in getting it tailored so that it fits perfectly. It’s a good time for him to get a new shirt and tie, anyway! Have him buy new shoes as well. He can always wear them after the wedding.

10. Guests’ Comfort
Don’t forget to provide enough toilet paper, paper towels and soap for the bathroom. A large garbage can or two can keep things neat. Don’t forget your wedding playlist! An iPod and a good pair of speakers will take care of that easily.
With these tips, you are sure to pull off an affordable, fun and elegant wedding in your own backyard! For affordable and elegant wedding clutches, corsets and shoes, visit Chicastic today!
