Like A Rhinestone Cowboy

Hat (thrifted)
Cowhide Jacket (Christmas gift from my grandma)
Dress (thrifted)
Dooney and Bourke Leather Bag (thrifted)
Jeffery Campbell Heels (ebay)

My grandma lives right in the middle of cowboy country and she sent me this jacket as a Christmas gift last year.  I really like it buuuut....I haven't worn it at all, it's a pretty statement-ish item for me. (And I'm saying this as someone who has a embellished, beaded and mirrored jacket.)  I don't like getting rid of things people give me though so I've been trying to work it into my outfits more, a white dress is the easiest way to style it but I might have to go with the predicable and wear it with some cut offs before the colder weather hits us.

I did laugh when I opened the box, it totally reminded me of an old riding friend who use to ride every day in a pair of bright, hot pink chaps.  All of her riding gear was pink, pink halter, lead rope, saddle blanket, pads, horses blanket, almost everything was pink expect for her horse and I'm pretty sure if she could have, she would have turned him pink.


  1. Wow, that jacket reminds me instantly of a jacket jack white wore during his tour with the raconteurs! amazing!

  2. Yeah, that jacket certainly makes a statement :) I like how you wore it though--not too overwhelming. Also, you always have the best bags and purses!

  3. That jacket is too cool! It is definitely a statement, but you styled it quite well.

  4. I've never seen a jacket like this before but I think it looks adorable on you! It's definitely a statement piece. I really like it paired with the white dress.
