Halloween Costume Inspiration: Part 2

booshoo_02There is no better way to spend Halloween than with your girls. It really is like prom night all over again. Here’s a bit of inspiration to make October 31, 2014 the best night with your bestie(s).

DUOS – ’cause you can do better than “Sexy Mario and Sexy Luigi”


SANDY FROM GREASE – No one has to fight over this costume- you both get to be hopelessly devoted in this cheeky interpretation of the classic ingenue. 

Zoo Shoo Exclusives: Cotton Candy top, white Qupid oxford flat, Game Maker skirt, Bow Down ring, Torch crop top, black Bad Sandy jeans, Right Angle belt,  red Delicious pump

Tip: Spend your night at a karaoke bar! Grease tunes are always a crowd-pleaser… and you don’t need a Danny Zuko around!


ROMY AND MICHELE’S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION – You and your bestie dance to your own beat, and people think you guys are weird. But I mean… let’s be honest… this town is so unhip.

Zoo Shoo Exclusives: pink crystal-encrusted pump by Red Kiss, pink Deep Diver dress, Cypress Gem bracelet, Neo Soul necklace, mint Deep Diver dress, pewter Qupid sandals

Tip: Give out your number on post-it notes.


TIFFANY & CO. BOXES – Diamonds are a girls’s best friend. What better way to show off your own best friend?

Zoo Shoo Exclusives: silver Qupid pumps, mint Seaside romper, seafoam green Breckelle’s pump, Fair and Square ring, Jeweled City bracelet, Sugared Snowdrop bracelet, Single Ladies ring

Tip: As an ode to Audrey Hepburn… carry croissants. You’ll literally be “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” and the carbs help with the hangovers.

TRIOS – Charlie’s Angels? So… you’re just… wearing black?


CLUELESS – One of you might not be able to pronounce “Haitian” but it’s all good when you’re rollin’ with the homies.

Zoo Shoo Exclusives: black First Impression blazer, red Hot Like Sriracha dress, Prep School skirt, red Qupid pump, black Soda mary janes, Follow the Leader skirt, red Cookie Cutter sweater, black Qupid mary jane pumps

Tip: Look through the basement for some prehistoric cellphones. If they still work, you can play Snake while you wait for your drinks.


BANG BANG – One is sweet. One is spicy. One is saucy. All three of you are a bit different but there’s no doubt you’ll be B to the A to the N to the G to the uh!

Zoo Shoo Exclusives: Metropolitan jumper, Oyster Club shades, black mesh Qupid pumps, pink lipstick pumps by Red Kiss, white Plato dress, X-Rated ring, Best Night Ever dress, leopard-print Delicious pump

Tip: If you’re Ariana, don’t forget her signature ponytail. If you’re Nicki- get some extra padding to accentuate your look-at-her-butt.


JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS – Throwback to Y2K… when Tara Reid was relevant. The Spice Girls were cool but I mean… we’re rockstars.

Zoo Shoo Exclusives: animal-print Breckelle’s booties, black Daredevil pants, metallic teal Smooth Talker bralette, Tie-Me-Up crop, animal-print Steve Madden sneakers, pale pink Point Place pants (try saying that ten times fast!) Stitch in Time jeans, leopard-print Qupid bootie

Tip: In the movie version, Valerie (Rosario Dawson) plays the bass. In the comics, she plays the tambourine.

Halloween Costume Inspiration: SOLO


I love Halloween! Once a year you get to dress up as wild and crazy as you’d like without judgement. Just kidding. If you write “book” on your face and say that you’re “Facebook,” I’ll judge you for your lack of all hallow’s enthusiasm. I’m very Heidi Klum in the sense that I take this holiday very seriously.

Halloween has landed perfectly on a Friday this year, so that means- NO EXCUSES. Go out and have fun. October has just begun so you have a whole month to come up with a kick@SS costume. We at ZooShoo (or should I say, BooShoo?) will be posting costume guides every week this month to help get your creative juices flowing!

This week, we’re featuring solo costumes!

For a “classic” chick:


AUDREY HEPBURN – 1. Start with vintage cat-eye with an extra-black color. 2. If you don’t have your own tiara, pin a bobby pin a sparkly bracelet around a ballet bun. 3. Retro sunglasses are a must. 4. Choose a classic and simple black heel. 5. Layer yourself in pearls. 6. Pull out your go-to LBD.


MARILYN MONROE – 1. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. 2. Get cheeky in a flowy skirt. Wind not included.  3. Plunge into a vintage inspired bodysuit.4. Use a creamy black liner for her signature beauty mark. 5. Glam up your gams in simple white pumps. 6. Leave a trail of broken hearts in a sultry red lipstick.

For the “funny” flirt:

Steal some hearts (and chuckles) and groovify the goddess of love.
Dress: MUSE Sandals: MELO


Show off your love of animals (as well as idioms).
Bottom: Meow That’s What I Call Leggings Top: Boston Terrier Tank

For the “film” fatale:

ELLE WOODS – 1. Follow your heart to Harvard  2. Don’t forget Bruiser! 3. Think pink when accessorizing, duh. 4. Show off your sorority girl bod in a hot pink dress. 5. Don’t forget to lighten your tresses… or you’ll just be legally _____ 6. Look sleek (and pink) in your serious lawyer pumps. 7. Don’t forget your books – you’re a Harvard law student!

BUMBLEBEE – 1. Block out the explosions in these mega-sunglasses.  2. Spray paint a cardboard box in fluorescent yellow to make robotic panels for your head and shoulders. 3. Show them who’s large and in charge in these crazy sandals. 4. Don’t forget your body armor


There you have it, ladies! You’ve got 29 days left to start constructing a sweet solo costume! Return next week- and we’ll be featuring costumes for you duos and trios!



Happy National Coffee Day!

Mondays are the worst, right?

I like to chant affirmations to motivate myself when I get the Monday blues. Usually things like “Beyoncé doesn’t have a snooze button! GET OUT OF BED.” Or I’ll specifically set “The Circle of Life” as my morning alarm so that I wake up feeling like a lion.

Today I have decided to channel Ariana Grande. I don’t know much about her except for the fact that she sings really high… but she’s kind of an “it” girl right now… and I could use a little bit of her ferocity.

So to channel in my inner Ariana Grande, I will be wearing my Madden Girl “Ariiana” booties and I will order a grande-sized beverage at Starbucks.

Have a great week!


Collipark, Bubba Sparxxx…

Get it ripe, get it right, get it tight

I saw you lookin’ at them booties. Don’t be shy, grab ’em today:


Ooh La Libra


Happy Birthday to the loving and romantic Libra.

The leaves are changing and the temperature is turning towards brisk. When autumn begins, I can’t help but feel a bit of romantic nostalgia or sheer whimsy. This is the perfect season for us ladies to embrace the refined Libra and fall in love with our autumn wardrobe.

The Libra lady is a true girly girl. Fashion-wise, they embody the 3P’s – pretty, pastels, and patterns. Her overall style tends to be sweet and pretty rather than bold and edgy. Though she isn’t afraid to show off her vampy side from time to time, the core of a Libra woman is soft and feminine. Colors to embrace include pink, light blue, and white. Take a break from all the bohemian fraying and geometric shapes, and try a soft floral pattern to show off your sensitive side. Be careful when wearing florals- they can look seasonally inappropriate depending on the print or article of clothing. Avoid floral skirts and try floral lace or a printed silk scarf instead.

To avoid looking like a cupcake or walking Monet, I like to channel my inner-Libra by styling myself after a classic Parisian woman. I play “La Vie en Rose” as I begin to piece together an outfit I see fit to wear if I were to frolic around the Eiffel Tower.

For makeup, take inspiration from the burnt autumn leaves. It’s time to whip out those bold red lips! Rose gold palettes are magical and playfully flirty. A personal favorite is Naked3 by Urban Decay which features a gorgeous palette of shimmery rose-hued neutrals. Get flirty with accessories! There is no better time to add a bow to your top-knot, or to sport some heart-shaped sunglasses. Jewelry should be delicate yet sparkly. You don’t need a statement piece to make a statement. You’d be surprised by how much spotlight you can steal when light catches on a simple charm or a dainty ring.


For shoes, wedges and heels are absolute musts! If you have to wear a flat, go for a crocheted oxford or ballet flats. See how the stars align or you this month with our ZooShoo Zodiac Guide:
