Louise Elizabeth Sawyer from Thelma and Louise

Louise Elizabeth Sawyer played by Susan Sarandon is an independent woman living in Arkansas. She works as a waitress and has an on again off again boyfriend named Jimmy. Her best friend is Thelma, a sweet but very naive young housewife in an abusive relationship. Louise wants to have a weekend getaway with Thelma not realizing entirely how bad Thelma’s home life has been. The two hit the road in Louise’s baby blue 1966 Ford Thunderbird and get into trouble by nightfall. This is definitely a warm-weather outfit but if you live in a colder climate a leather, suede, or jean jacket could be added. It is a casual look with light make up but definitely a costume that you need a partner to feel complete in. There is no Louise without Thelma and vice versa!
