Megan: The Givenchy outfit Audrey Hepburn is wearing in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of the most iconic costumes of film, which made recreating the look fairly simple: all it requires is a classic little black dress, black elbow-length gloves, pearls, and sunnies. I tucked a tiara into my top knot to recreate her bejeweled updo, and you could certainly carry a danish in a little paper bag for authenticity and snacking purposes, darling.

Alice in Wonderland
Megan: Alice has always been my favorite heroine in the Disney oeuvre because she isn't a princess and her story didn't involve finding a prince. Plus, her outfit is three easy pieces, so she makes for a quick costume. I layered a short sleeve button up shirt under a simple blue dress, and I found a seller on eBay who makes custom pinafores, and - ta da! - we have Alice. I completed the look with a black satin ribbon headband, some ruffly white socks, black round toe pumps, and a teacup which makes for a convenient drinking vessel for any party you might find down a rabbit hole.

Megan: Daisy Buchanan is an incredibly identifiable character in her own right, but she also represents the Roaring Twenties era, so there are lots of fun period elements you can pull from and incorporate into your own rendition of Daisy. I paired this gold beaded Sue Wong cocktail dress with art deco inspired jewelry and topped it off with a flapper-esque headband. And to really pull together the costume, I tucked this Great Gatsby clutch under my arm for a night of large parties (because they're so intimate, of course).
