It’s the Christmas season and that means getting ready for all those holiday parties! Here are some ideas on what to wear during the festivities. I picked out my favorite color combinations inspired by some classic holiday tunes.
Here Comes Santa Clause
You can always mix them up, but I love the classic white and red. You may notice I didn’t add any green, and that’s because I like to think of standing out in front of the Christmas tree. Always pair with a red lip, and I usually just do my regular curl set. Up-do or a half-do are pretty classy hairstyles that go with these outfits.

It’s finally Halloween season! Time to dress up, get that sugar high, and take lots of shots! You would be surprised how you can incorporate a pin-up vibe to any Halloween costume. Here are few ideas:
The queen of cutting off the roses, Morticia Addams is the baddest mom on the block. Her long black hair, silky white skin and demure look is a classic Halloween costume. All you’ll need is a long black dress, a wig (if you already don’t have luscious locks), and killer red lipstick.
Sugar Skull (Day of the Dead)
The tradition of the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos is full of festivities. That includes the sugar skull face. Read more on the history of the sugar skull here on Idda van Munster’s blog. This is a really fun costume where you can put your makeup and face painting skills to work. A fun dress, and some flowers creates the look.
A really fun pin-up look giving a nod to the WWII sailors. Some shorts, a sailor top, red lipstick and curled hair and you’ve got yourself a costume. Accessorize with some necklaces such as anchors, swallow birds or even add a temporary tattoo and a sailor hat!
Rosie the Riveter
Lastly, you cannot forget the iconic Rosie the Riveter. She is the poster woman representing the American woman who worked the factories during WWII. She is a pin-up icon! This costume is super easy, and watch out for my tutorial on how to recreate this look!
