I’m all about thrifted & handmade accessories to compliment my thrifty refashioned outfits…and when I can combine it all to recreate and share a groovy look from my fashion past I am definitely a happy little DIY diva!
Rock those rings gals!
Every single fabulous bit of finger bling in my for-everyday-wear collection was either thrifted, inherited or handmade and I lurv each & every one of ’em!
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
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!
