{halloween week} Pure Imagination

Here's my Halloween 'costume!' Can you guess who I am? one?  WILLY WONKA! Willy Wonka is one of my all time favorite movies and over the Summer I realized I had all the pieces to create a girl version.  I always call this purple blazer my Willy Wonka jacket and this ASOS dress from a few years ago has a print just like on his shirt.  Meant to be, right?!  All I had to do was buy some ribbon so my mom could make me a big bow.  I decided to forgo the cane, but I did pick up a hat on eBay.

I'm not actually going anywhere but I thought it was fun and I'm wearing the outfit to work today. Minus the hat and bow, though I will bring them in my tote bag in case I feel like putting them on.

Dress: ASOS, Jacket: Gap (Coco's), Bow: Made by Mom, Hat: eBay, Booties: no.704b. (DSW)

And here's the inspiration:
