Halloween fashion alert
The Americans have gone doolally over Halloween costumes which spoof or support their election contenders – and not just masks of Obama and McCain.
Many people will be turning themselves into Sarah Palin tomorrow night just by rummaging through their wardrobe, but still, costumes like the $22,99 "Miss Alaska" kit are selling like hotcakes.
If you are brave, skip the demure fitted jacket and pencil skirt and just slap the sash on over a beauty queen bikini (Sarah was a runner up the Miss Alaska pageant in her younger days). Whatever you do, though, don’t forget the glasses. Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan is one celeb planning to dress as Palin for her Halloween party.
On the other hand, you could go for a less revealing option with a Sarah Palin mask which sells for $18,99.
Hmm, I've got a Halloween party on tomorrow night ... let’s see what the weather does, before we decide what to wear, shall we?
I am the women's editor at The Herald in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, working on the weekly tabloid insert La Femme. I believe men and women have more in common than they think ... OK, we do tend to eat more chocolate ... so this blog, although ostensibly about all things female - the F-World - is really a light-hearted look at life.
