Love this, I was in colorado, new mexico, arizona and Utah in the summer, and everybody was dressed like this, its amazing, we felt so out of place though, we went to a rodeo, and it was tough enough to wear pink, so everybody was in cowboys boots, jeans, hate, pink shirts, and belt, and I was in a shirt dress and glads, i felt rather english, haha.
Whoa! Have been a blogspot fan for awhile and am addicted to shots from the "big cities". However I just came back from my first trip to Colorado and then logged on to see…OMG …"western wear"!!! Pretty cool!
Maybe Garance added a fresh perspective! At any rate, I love your photos. Thank you so much!
I like these — beautiful young ladies in functional style *doing* something. I like looking at stylish city women but know most of it isn't for me; heels I can't walk in and skirts I can't bend over in, suitable only for standing around at parties, get tiresome very quickly…
Really like the stitching and fit of the blue shirt; it suits her well.
In the early 80s, I did a cross-country roadtrip with friends & just happened to hit Laramie, Wyoming during a rodeo. People were so nice to our little band of punk rockers & explained everything about how the different contests work, etc. It was a highlight of our trip.
(well that and that we just happened to hit Graceland on the ten year anniversary of Elvis's death. Again, people were so excited that a bunch of punks were fans. We didn't explain that our arrival then was pure accident!)
