A Very Fashionable Halloween

As a veteran tap dancer who grew up donning sequined costumes and feathery fascinators, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the ultimate costume holiday: Halloween. And while it’s a blast to go all-out in a handmade costume, it’s also fun to embrace the tradition of dressing up (literally) by rocking a fabulous frock with clever accessories.

Enter Rent the Runway. When they approached us with the idea of doing a Halloween photo shoot combining their dresses with over 100 items from Etsy to create some creative, clever, and glamorous ensembles, we couldn’t say no. Here are a few of our favorites:
