Work Appropriate Halloween Costume: Sookie Stackhouse

Work Appropriate Halloween Costume: Sookie Stackhouse
So, I now work in the corporate environment and was told that many people dress up for Halloween. However, I still must adhere to the dress code at work while dressing up; and, as it happens, our dress code is fairly strict.

I can’t speak for the entire line as I can for say, Revlon, because I haven’t used the entire gamut of all they offer; however, some of the products are really awesome and it’s an added bonus that they don’t cost a lot.
