Cute and Easy Rosie the Riveter Costume

I saw a picture of Rosie depicted with Veteran’s Day coming up. The red bandanna caught my eye and I thought a Rosie the Riveter costume would be a perfect outfit to put together.

All it took to put this costume together was a simple blue work shirt, a red bandanna, and some red lipstick. That’s it. I was ready for the night out.

I was warm and comfy all night as it does cool off into the 40s here this time of year.

I made the mistake of buying some cheaper red lipstick and it ended up on my teeth several times.

I was complimented several times on how beautiful I looked without having to play it up and show skin to be noticed. It was a fun costume wear and was easy to pull off on a budget. As well, I was great looking like the proud strong woman I am!
