Bad guys are cooler in westerns
Old Navy Hat and Blouse J.Brand Waxed Jeans (ebay)
DV by Dolce Vita Boots
Leather Handbag (thrifted)
Vintage Silver Cuff (thrifted)
I didn't get many pictures of it but I really liked this outfit. We re-watched Appaloosa last night and Jeremy Irons had this really awesome hat with silver studs in the movie. I had a long leather band so I tried to replicated the look but eh, at least it's a little interesting. It was fun to re-watch that movie again, the first time I saw it just because dude, it's Viggo, Ed Harris and Jeremy Irons in one movie and Viggo and Ed are like the best movie pairing EVER. (I do mean this, A History of Violence? Ed Harris is so awesome with a scarred up eye..) I didn't think very much of Appaloosa the first time around aside from the great dialog but after watching it again and thinking about it, I realized it's actually sort of brilliant. It's really an interesting portrayal of a old gunslinger trying to retire, a idea that has been done like a million times but well done in this case. (And again, can we just talk about Jeremy Irons' voice?) I really enjoy the western genre so it's fun to see the newer westerns coming out and seeing how they stack up next to the older ones.
