So I finally did the impossible. I actually talked my husband into going as Elvis for Halloween. Finally - after all of these years - he's going as the King himself and I couldn't be more excited about it. I failed to convince him that the white jumpsuit Elvis is pure awesomeness, but I did manage to talk him into a tamer, less flashy version – Jailhouse Rock Elvis

Surprisingly, it has been a fairly easy costume to assemble. He already has a black retro-ish jacket and black jeans so all he really needs is the striped prison shirt which I actually found with one little Google search. All that's left to finish his outfit off is a black wig with wicked side burns and that shouldn't be too difficult to find.

So this brings me to my latest treasury, Striped. I've had stripes on the brain lately since I just picked up the perfect black-and-white convict tee from Hot Topic to complete his ensemble. Not only has it been enjoyable to plan out his costume, but it also reminded me that stripes are fun and whimsical, bold and graphic – just like these incredible sellers. Enjoy! (Thank you. Thank you very much…)

The line-up: studiomme, KatHannah, onlygooddreams, NatureVisions, Zygopsyche, h00ked, nakarastyle, vivikas, larimeloom, StudioLeanne, jiajiadoll, maryjudy


  1. Rosina, what a beautiful and creative blog. I look forward to you posting a pic of your husband in his halloween Elvis ensemble.

  2. Thank you so much for including me! This is one of the coolest treasuries I've seen in a long time! Love the striped tights print. Good job talking your husband into being Elvis. I've almost convinced my boyfriend to go as Sherlock Holmes (with me as Watson).

  3. Sherlock and Watson! That's great!! Halloween is so much fun :) xoxo, MR
