Going to Vegas is always like looking through the pages of an InStyle Magazine; but throw in the NFR and loads of cowgirl style, and you’ve got the Dirt Road Daughters Version of Fashion Weekly. There’s big, wide, chunky, leather belts; filagreed boots and purses, slabs of turquoise (and they’re not just relegated to belts and bracelets- you can see them inlaid in tables!); dark wash denim jeans with studs, and a new, more refined bling.
I really love doing my shopping for the year while I’m there during the NFR. There’s nearly everything I could ever wear or want to have in my house at one of four expo centers.
This year I picked up three new pairs of Rock and Roll Cowgirl Jeans. They’re my favorite jeans.
I went with a mid-rise cut, because frankly, though I love the look of a lower-rise, my shirts rarely stay tucked in and it makes wearing them in winter annoying because inevitably, a cold wind will blow up your back. In summer it’s not such a big deal. So I thought I’d make a change, for the practical. After all, if a cowgirl isn’t practical, what is she?
I love the studs on this pair!
They’re also found on the belt loops, which I think is kinda cool!
Here’s a close up:
These just have a big, crystal button on them, with gorgeous big stitching! Can you say, LOVE?
A simple sequin pattern on the leather crosses and black studs around the pocket make these a great pair to wear at out- I mean when I actually go out. I figure they’ll see more saddle time, than city lights!
Just before I left for Vegas, I picked up this pair of R&R jeans-
I know, why am I shopping BEFORE Vegas? Well, they were priced $25 below retail, that’s why!
And because Rock and Roll Cowgirl Jeans are made by Panhandle slim, I couldn’t resist this “better than a bandana” red shirt:
I also have developed a love-affair with denim, the past few months. I mean, I’ve always loved denim, but with my new addiction to Wild Rags (made by The awesome Buck Wild), I find that denim lets me wear wilder, brighter colors in the way of silk, and doesn’t compete for center stage with my scarves. So I picked up this gorgeous denim shirt from Stetson.
And while I love the clothes, and the rings I got, I absolutely love this sign the most. It is by far my favorite purchase:
This concludes our tour of the major pieces of clothing I purchased. There were lots of Christmas ornaments purchased as well; and more than one trip to Sephora. I may share those purchases too, because I love everything I ever get at that place!
Tomorrow marks the first official day of winter, and frankly the weather has been GORGEOUS! I plan to spend my day outside, with my horses, doing chores that need to get finished before the snow flies. The best news about it turning to winter, tomorrow, is that it’s Winter Solstice! Which means that the days just get longer from tomorrow on out! And I love longer days!
Happy Trails, Happy Shopping, and Happy Holidays!
