Style Icon: Dolly Parton

It’s Woman Crush Wednesday and I can’t think of anyone I adore more than Dolly Parton! From her big….um, hair (you didn’t think I was going to say, ‘hair’, did you?) to her sparkling personality, Dolly’s definitely a style icon in her own right. Check out these photos below for some of Dolly’s best looks…

I truly cannot gush more about Ms. Dolly Parton! Here are some more reasons I love this woman:

1. She’s unapologetic about her style. She’s famously said, “I make jokes about it, but it’s the truth that I kind of patterned my look after the town tramp. I didn’t know what she was, just this woman who was blond and piled her hair up, wore high heels and tight skirts, and, boy, she was the prettiest thing I’d ever seen. Momma used to say, “Aw, she’s just trash,” and I thought, That’s what I want to be when I grow up. Trash.”

2. She’s sharp as a tack. On being labeled a dumb blonde,”I’m not offended by all dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb. I also know I’m not blonde.”

3. She’s funny as hell! See “titty” joke in the photos above.

4. Her words of wisdom. Some of these include:

“Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.”

“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.”

“Now the night I graduated from Sevier County High School, back in 1964, we were all asked to stand up and talk about what we were going to do with the rest of our lives. And everybody had a different story. And when it came my time I stood right up there. I said I’m going to Nashville and I’m going to be a star. Well the whole place laughed out loud. And I was so embarrassed, cause I thought how odd. Why is everybody laughing, cause that is what I’m going to do.

But as bad as I felt at that moment and as embarrassed as I was, it did not shake me from my dreams. I guess I showed them all didn’t I?”

“If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.”

“Smile – It increases your face value!”

Who else loves Dolly as much as I do?
