Lucy I’m Hooommmmeee!
I have been so swamped the last few months that I swore I wouldn’t be able to put together a costume in time for Halloween. You know, I usually go hard or go home with anything I do because I am a perfectionist-pain-in-the-ass, so I wasn’t even going to celebrate Halloween until my cousin invited me to her party. I missed my family so much I couldn’t refuse and I wasn’t going to show up without a costume. I had to come up with something quick and decided I would be Lucille Ball from “I love Lucy” and it was inspired by a convo I had with one of my friends earlier that month about how we both love how she was not only easy on the eyes, but quirky and fun. So I just threw my red wig on, a green vintage dress, an apron with a matching head-piece, and my Steve Madden nude pumps. I cut out a red heart out of a Verizon brochure she had on her desk and just pinned it to my dress; super ghetto, I know! Whatever, I made it work. After a half hour of dolling myself up thinking…”this just isn’t going to work..this wig isn’t going to look right in a pony tail..I didn’t even prep this!” I was shocked…I had pulled off being Lucille Ball. Somehow, someway, I styled the wig to look exactly like Lucy’s! That wasn’t the only highlight of my day. I was able to see my family that I missed so much and my mother surprised me with an early “Nightmare before Xmas” birthday cake! My family is amazing, I couldn’t have asked for a better pre-halloween/pre-birthday celebration! Check out more photos inside!
