Vintage Cowgirl

Hey Yall!

Happy Tuesday to you! Hope everyone's week is going well so far. As for me, I have been a real home body lately. Staying cool indoors and working on some sewing and scrap booking projects that I started and then left neglected for a while. I seriously think that I have adult ADD. I always have too many things going at one time, the ideas in my mind don't ever stop and I really struggle to stay focused with completing one task before starting another. I am easily distracted!

So today, I decided to work on some stuff for my Vintage Cowgirl shoot in a couple of weeks. I pretty much already have most of my wardrobe stuff, (minus a few little odds and ends). I am really excited about this shoot!. Most likely because along with the Senorita shoot, it is another image that represents my hometown and my heritage. I have wanted to accomplish these two shoots for a long time now! I am so glad that it is finally getting done.

1940s and 50s western and mexican kitsch, decor & fashions are some of my favorite things to collect. Below are a few of my favorite Vintage Cowgirl images. Another half done project of mine is to have these prints framed and displayed in my house (or at least one of them...). I am taking inspiration from these for my upcoming shoot and I hope you all will love them just as much as I do! Also, I was surfing on Ebay this morning and came across some gorgeous vintage western outfits that I can't afford, but would love to share the pictures of anyway. I did manage to find a darling little bakelite boot pin, that is in my bidding price range, wish me luck!!

Happy Trails to you until we meet again!!



Photos courtesy of Ebay. OMG!  just look at this 1950's Western suit.....

That cute little pin, I want in my collection...


  1. You know, the older I get, the more I develop a crush on vintage western wear. I wonder if it's all those years of country music my mom kept the dial tunned to finally reaching my psyche :D

    That floral bedecked pants suit is absolutely wild! I don't know if I'd have the confidence to pull it off, but wow, does it look great on that model.

    Wonderful post, sweetie, thank you for the awesome cowgirl inspiration :)

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

  2. Those are some fab vintage cowgirl looks! Love that pantsuit though I don't have the guts to wear it! And her hair!

  3. Jessica- I'm sure that since you were raised listening to country music. Western Vintage always had a special place somewhere in your heart. The appreciation is resurfacing itself in later years...Yay! Thanks for sharing!


    Lemondrop Marie- Thanks! I know what you mean. It is definatley a risk to wear. It was more of a show suit I think. It would be great for a photoshoot or some elaborate western event. I definatley wouldn't have the guts to pull off that hairdo either, but I'm glad she does!


  4. Wow. I just happend to stumble across your blog. I love it! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Pantsuit ? That means menswear; I think I 'll wear those cowboy duds ! Surrender those Western duds to me, cowgirl !

  6. That horse in the last three photos look like Trigger Roy Rogers horse. It as the same saddle and things that Trigger did.

  7. I'm trying to develop a similar site to this myself, there's a hugе amount of effort that goеs into it.
