One of the things I love about reading other blogs is discovering new fashion, beauty products, accessories and jewellery. As I follow along with the blog Horses and Heels I was struck dumb with ooos and ahhs at the beautiful wrist cuff that Raquel reviewed from Cowgirl Relics. Heading straight on over to Lindy's site I found oodles of gorgeous necklaces, earrings, cuffs and other western style trinkets. Not being able to help myself I just had to have this 'Sierra Western Extra Long Necklace with Leather Fringe'. Priced at only $40 how could I not?
It is a bohemian-style western necklace that has white round magnesite stones, tiger's eye chips and round turquoise magnesite stones, with an upcycled vintage silver-tone, concho style connector that gives it a lovely south western flair. The leather tassel is handcrafted deerskin that also has a turquoise magnesite talon shaped stone.
The style of jewellery at Cowgirl Relics is a mixture of rustic and feminine, ideal for the "cowgirl in each of us", which I absolutely love as this is what my space here stands for too! The pieces are all hand crafted, with owner/designer Lindy, paying special attention to detail. Her goal is to bring out your cowgirl spirit!
For Lindy her love of horses, antiques, Texas country music and the great outdoors inspire her pieces, which I feel is truly reflected in this necklace.
I love that she also strongly believes in women's inner feminine strength and that inside us all lies a cowgirl - someone full of "grit and grace".
I have also bought a gorgeous pair of earrings from Cowgirl Relics, which I will showcase in another post!
Fashion today.... my shirt is from RB Sellars, my jeans are Wrangler's Booty Up jeans, (which make your butt look awesome!!) and there are those Ariat boots again.
And this photo is me looking more like my daggy self (true personality shot this one)..instead of a 'try-hard' model.
Note: All the photos of me in my OOTD posts, including this one, are taken by my 11 year old son, who I think is becoming quite the little fashion photographer!
