My favorite Halloween costume tip: for those times when you don’t have time to put together a costume, make sure you keep a mask on hand. My absolute favorites are Venetian-style masks that go beautifully with any dressy outfit. You may not stand out in a sea of costumes, but you will look appropriate, mysterious, and alluring. Pier 1 has a fantastic and extremely affordable collection of (usually pricey) Venetian masks.
