Let's be real, Halloween costume shopping can be a total nightmare — mostly because outfits from traditional costume shops are really expensive and lack originality.
Don't get me wrong, I love a good generic witch costume ... but everyone looks the same!
Most importantly, I'd never wear those costumes *after* the holiday passes. So this year I gave myself a challenge: I'm going to buy a costume that I'll actually use in everyday life. So where did I head to? Victoria's Secret, of course.
First on my checklist? A sports bra — of which you can never have too many.
My favorite part of the costume hunt was, without a doubt, this sultry silk robe.
Added bonus: I just added three great staples to my wardrobe — things I'll definitely wear after October 31.
