Kelly Golightly and Fred Baby recreate You've Got Mail Halloween Costumes


Looking for a cute couples costume? If you’re a huge Nora Ephron fan like I am, these You’ve Got Mail Halloween costumes might be for you! Here’s how to get the look of Kathleen Kelly, Joe Fox F-O-X and Brinkley.

Kathleen Kelly’s style is classic, simple and feminine. A little cardigan, a pleated skirt, ballet flats — you can wear this as easily now (NOT as a costume) as in 1998.

Joe Fox’s look is simple and pretty classic too — khaki pants, a polo shirt and a suede bomber.

For Odee, I wanted her to have the feel of New York City, so when I saw this taxi cab costume for dogs, I had to get it.

I also had this sleeveless tweed dress in my closet already (old Sail to Sable), which reminded me of another outfit Kathleen Kelly wears in The Shop Around the Corner.

What do you think? Are you a huge You’ve Got Mail fan too? I rewatch it at least once every fall. It just feels so cozy and is one of my Top 10 Favorite Romantic Comedies.

Do you have any suggestions of what we should dress up as this year for Halloween?

What will you be dressing up as? I’d love to know in the comments!

p.s. Don’t we look HID-E-OUS in our wigs?! We couldn’t stop laughing at each other. Funnily enough, we swapped wigs and I looked better in the black curly wig and Fred Baby looked better as a blonde.
