Muses of Decades Past

The night of hallows is among us soon. October 31st comes every year — and every year, it gives every woman, man, and child an excuse to adorn themselves in costume — to be anyone or anything they so choose. Many go for the usual suspects: nurse, cat, pumpkin, vampire… us? We’re looking to our muses of the past that quite frankly, still have us musing onward to the future. We turn the tables of Halloween costumes to our favorite inspirational style icons of decades-past: Stevie Nicks, Debbie Harry, Edie Sedgwick and Cher.

All of them icons. Each of them powerful influencers of personal style and individuality. All of these women define ‘timeless‘ — inspiring generations upon generations to come.

So, yeah… yeah… I’ll be that… if even for a night of drifting and dancing with the lost witches and Draculas. I’ll dress myself in timeless style and call it a “costume”.

Best part? I can still wear the same pieces again, again, and again.

We spent the day with Hairroin Salon, collaborating to transform Annie into each of our muses. 1 girl… 4 icons. Enjoy! Happy Halloween to you all.

Oh, what an odd coincidence! I’ve been putting together my “Edie” look for a week or two already. Isn’t she perfect?

This is perfect! Gorgeous pieces – nothing better than having some things to wear once the party is over.

Warm Regards,

Definitely going to go as Stevie Nicks this year – I have the most perfect bell-sleeved Gypsy Junkies tunic that I got from FP a while ago that I’m going to pair with some booties, a hat, and a tambourine. So perfect!

I LOVE Stevie! Her look is what drove me to FP. Seeing this post however a bit late I’ve already put my pirate costume together. I used my white tattered up slip, ruffled military jacket in black, black boots and added a pirate hat and red and white stripped sash. Love that my everyday clothes can style me any way I choose. LOVE you FP!

These are amazing costume ideas! I love Debbie Harry and Stevie Nicks. They’re probably two of my favorite female singers ever! Thank you for sharing these muses. :)
