Romantic Prairie Style ~ Cowboy Up Girls!



To celebrate spring and the launch of Fifi's new book, Romantic Prairie Style, (of which I am yet to receive my copy!), I was inspired last night, at midnight mind you, to add a little bit of my own prairie style to my decor.  That's right girls...it's time to cowboy up!  One of my favorite fashion styles is prairie/western fashion that is romantic and funky all at the same time so my little dress form got a bit of a makeover in the wee hours...and here she is...




This is an outfit that I actually wear, but my friend can borrow it for awhile...





A pink t-shirt from the Junk Gypsies with their famous
"Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History" is one of my favorite tees...








Three different layers of vintage and new necklaces are a must for this look...





A pretty western style belt adorns the waist...





A fabric flower softens the look...





This lovely belt was picked up at a thrift store for only a few dollars...





This gorgeous multi-layered lace skirt can be found at
Victorian Trading Company...





It has beautiful detailing on the lace and it is fully lined and quite heavy...





A frothy white scarf was added to the side for extra romance...





I love the way this scarf looks wrapped around the waist...





A favorite pair of well worn old leather boots...





My version of Romantic Prairie Style...

I can't wait to receive my book!

Hi Stacy,

You are too funny, lol!

I was out shopping for some clothes today and saw a very similar skirt in Marshalls. My daughter forbid me to buy it, she thought that I am too old for....quote" the Little House On The Prairie" look! Ughhh, kids (altho' she is 27!) can drive ya nuts....

xo,
Janet

Hahaha Janet ~ that is too funny! I love this skirt, although I don't wear it often. It is VERY hot and VERY heavy. It's actually a fantastic quality skirt and the best time to wear it is in the fall when it's cooler. Love Victorian Trading Co. stuff though! I did wear this at the antique show one time when I was a dealer and people loved it! It was the perfect venue to wear it at! xo

Very Charming Stacy, but does this mean the pale pink prom dress went away? :-(
