Halloween Costume: Thrifting 9 to 5

Hi Everyone! 
Did you have good weekend? Did you do anything Halloweeny? 
My husband and I attended a Halloween party on Saturday night. I think I did my best ever costume this year!
I went as Dolly Parton!

To be Dolly Parton you must have:
The wig: Party City $19.99 
A blingy dress that defines the waist: Goodwill $2.50
long nails: Walgreens $7
heels: Goodwill $3.99
and of course, the big boobs: 40DD bra from Walmart $9.98 (stuffed with a pair of leggins on each side)

I did my best to recreate her makeup with shades of pink, thick black liner, and fake eyelashes. I couldn't find a sequin dress so I went for the right fit and color then I blinged it up by attaching a fancy earring on the front. I think my boobs could have been bigger but the dress would only allow so much room. Overall, I was really excited how it turned out! 

Here are some of my costumes from past years:
Jaqueline Kennedy
 Joan Jett
and a 60's girl

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?

  3. The Dolly costume is absolutely perfect! Love it.

  4. omg your costumes are great and I love you with dark hair lindsey. dawn xo

  5. Dolly Parton! This is spot on. You look great, Lindsey! I love seeing your past costumes, too. Halloween, is a fave holiday and especially now, with a little one. I like low-budget costumes made from items in my closet and hand-made props. For some trick o' treating, I dressed as Frida Kahlo and my son was Clark Kent-Superman.

  6. JEEEEZ Dolly has big boobs! Your costumes are amazing. Nobody really celebrates Halloween in Australia, which is a shame because it looks like heaps of fun!
