I know you can't exactly necessarily tell from my recent posts, but lately I've been craving some rather odd colors.
Blame it on the fall, or something, but in addition to the denim, preferably in chambray, and creamy lace, that's been bugging my brain in all shades, I've also started thinking of maroon, grey, dirty coal black and earth tones. Usually a lover of bright colors, skirts and dresses, I've found the more muted pallet to my liking.
In addition to digging the outfits of these lovely ladies;
(Flaming Hag Folkwear rocking the lace and denim like no one else can!)
(Missa looking Old West perfect. )
I also stumbled upon some unusual sartorial influences in the form of an old favorite, that embodies the exact feel of what I want to wear (although I'm not quite ready yet to go into the re-enactment business).
Upon checking out one of my all-time-favorite TV shows (along with Twin Peaks, My So Called Life, and anything brain-birthed by one Joss Whedon), I discovered a throng ladies that, were they a groovy cabaret band would be calle Calamity Jane & Other Unlikely Fashion Icons. (Or perhaps Calamity Jane & Other Ladies Of Questionable Repute)
That's right, folks I want to dress like 1870s whores, dykes and laudanum addicted heiresses.
So about those barkin' irons...and maybe a filly too while we're at it Jane.
Also, if like me, you're a fan of olden time-y western entertainments you might do well to invest some nuggets from your claim on this awesome lookin' project by one fine and dandy gentleman named Darin Coelho. He be wed to our Heather, in case you's wondrin.
Good eve to ya'll!
ps. I would just like to say that it has been overwhelmingly hard trough out this post not to call everybody a c***s***er.
