A Wild West Thrifty Thursday

Having grown up in Alberta (a.k.a: the Texas of Canada) I know a wee bit about dressing the part of an urban cowboy…

little known fact: At the beginning of my long-ago starving artist days, in addition to waitressing, I taught fancy two-stepping classes to help make ends meet – & I can still polka, country foxtrot, spin, weave & turn like nobody’s business! Yeehaw!

Cowboy Hat (gift) €0 – Honest-to-goodness-cowboy-shirt (had since the 90’s) €0 – Undershirt (had for years) €0 – Belt (thrifted & refashioned) €0.10 – Jeans (had for years) €0 – Two-steppin’ cowboy boots (thrifted) €1.50

Total cost: €1.60

To tuck or not to tuck? Head on over to Conversations with a Cowboy and get the scoop on why some cowboys do and some don’t…

Can you believe I scored those gorgeous boots for a mere €1.50?

A Fringed Thrifty Thursday

I’ve always had a lurv/hate relationship with fringe. Growing up on the Canadian prairies meant my fair share of countrified outfits sporting those strings & tassels that seemed to catch & grab onto just about everything & annoy my young self to no end…

but with age comes maturity, life experience and the knowledge that when done right FRINGE IS AWESOME!

…and so I present not one but two fabulous fringed ensembles for your thrifty inspiration:

 

The ever popular fringed (faux) leather jacket…

and casual boho kimono!

Sunglasses (thrifted ) €0.20 –  Fringed faux leather jacket (thrifted) €4 – Sweatshirt dress (thrifted & refashioned) €1 – Tights (had for years) €0 – Biker boots (ebay) €4 – Sunglasses (thrifted ) €0.20 –  Fringed kimono (thrifted & refashioned) €3 – White top (had for years) €0 – Belt (thrifted) €1 – Jeans (had for years) €0 – Schweden Clogs (had for 17 years – now that’s quality!) €0

Total cost for both outfits: €13.40

…and that boho kimono makes for a great neighbourhood street fair look!
