Country Bumpkin Inspired Outfits

 

 Howdy ya’ll! Hehe. I said “howdy” xD But, anywho, for this blog post I thought I’d put together a few country outfits for you cowgirls. Not ALL country gals and cowgirls wear wranglers. long sleeve shirts and cowboy (cowgirl?) hats! No ma’am! I put together two HOT country inspired outfits for the fashion forward country bumpkin in you!

 

 

Country Bumpkin Outfit #1

                                                                  THE DRESS

 

 

 I chose this adorable Turquoise dress by Pink Cattlelac because not only of the beautiful color, but because of the cinched waiste, and ruffles at the bottom! Isn’t it just cute??!  

 

THE PURTTY BOOTS

Alright, so honestly I started out with the boots first! I was looking through the online catalouge at Sheplers.com (See for yourself. Boots to DIE for! Just metaphorically of course. hah! What really struck me about these boots was the turqoise color and of course that lovely pattern, that I’m not entirely sure what it is of exactly, and the description wasn’t that helpful either! hehe. But, moving on the brand of these delicious boots is Corral and they can also be found at Sheplers.com

 
 

           THE PURSE

 

Alright my lil’ country bumpkins check out this ridiculously cute find from American West. It’s a studded horseshoe leather tote bag and not only is this tote fashionable, but it’s also lucky! Why is it lucky you might ask? Well because it features an upside down horseshoe and for some reason they’re lucky! See I got my gals covered! ;)  This lucky tote was a lucky find at Sheplers.com

 

 

Country Bumpkin Outfit #2  

 THE DRESS

Some of you might be wondering…rixxi did you fall off your pony and hit your head or something?! This is a purple tiered dress from Old Navy! OLD NAVY! It can’t possibly be considered countrybumpkin-ish! Can it? Ah, but do not fret my darlings! Let’s see what I have added to this Old Navy dress to make it less Old Navy-ish and more country bumpkin-ish!  

 

 

THE LACEY BOOTS

 

Oh yes I went here! Let me just say, personally I LOVE victorian boots! It’s like when the Victorian women finally said ” I AM WOMAN! I SHALL wear boots!” (Because they had better vocabularies back then) and they made them cute instead of ugly, and raggedy which I’m sure the men’s were! (lol) IF that makes sense? (Hehe) Moving on! These are 9″ lace inset Victorian boots wich can be found at Sheplers.com (My new favorite store! Seriously do yourself a favor and at least skim over this site! You’ll become a boot fanatic like me. Okay, that’s just an assumption, but you might like something there? =)

 

 

THE NECKLACE

 

If this here piece o’ jewelry aint country and make you feel strong and “Ford Tough” and all that stuff well then, I don’t know what does! Personally, I think this is one of the coolest looking and functional pieces of jewelry I have ever seen! Just un hook the clasp where the three stars are, and the spur slides out and becomes a Ninjer’ throwin’ star! Alright, alright, I’m totally joking. It doesn’t double as a weapon *sigh* however it’s still a kick butt piece o’ jewelry by Montana Silversmiths wich can be found at Sheplers.com (However I still maintain It could have been a cool weapon conflabbit! >_< *Just for the record I don’t condone violence of any kind 0.O lol.

 

 

 

 

THE PURSE

 

Last but not least this purty, purple, purse by Kathy Van Zeeland. It is appropriatly named the  “Boom Shaker” Baha! Totally awesome name in my opinion. So, I thought the purple went nicely with the purple dress, (duh)  and the silver chains and studs accented the Spur Necklace wich is pretty much entirely silver . So this is more of “rocker country bumpkin outfit?” I don’t really know anymore, all I know is it’s hot here in the desert and if you want to purchase this awesome little “Boom Shaker”  it can be found  at  Zappos.com!

 

So that’s all I have for now ya’ll come back at a later date and I’ll have some amazing outfits set up for ya! And most likely a personal photo shoot. Not sure yet! But stay tuned! Ya’ll come back now ya hear! :)

 

 

 

 

 

Kim K. Can’t Find a Wedding Dress! What I Picked for Her

As I’m sure most of you’ve heard the beautiful Ms. Kim Kardashian is engaged to be married. I recently read in an article that she still hasn’t picked out a wedding dress! Kim says she can’t decide on a dress, and nothing she’s seen has caught her eye! So I decided to help her out and pick out a few wedding gowns that I think would be perfect for the bride to be!

 

Possible Choice #1

This stunning Amalia Carrara, princess/ball gown with a sweetheart neckline would be perfect for Ms. Kardashian! Her style is very sexy, yet classic with a focus on accentuating her curvy silhouette.

 

Possible Choice #2

 This gorgeous gown by Priscilla of Boston is actually the same silhouette as the dress above. Complete with a sweetheart neckline. I can imagine Kim K. walking down the isle in something like this! What do you guys think?

Possible Choice #3

Alright ladies when I saw this dress I thought to myself “That’s it! That”s Kim’s dress!” This hot little number is a McCaffrey Haute Coutoure gown. Amazing right?! With it’s mermaid silhouette and sweetheart neckline this dress is sure to make the bride look perfect on her wedding day! Congrats Kim!

Oh, but what about bridesmaides dresses?! What color? What styles?! I will give my top 3 choices for bridesmaides dresses and ya’ll can tell me if you like em’ and if it’s soemthing Kim would even consider! So here we go!

 

Possible Choice #1

 I know how Kim loves her metallics and this bridesmaide dress is classy, chic, and elegant.

 

Possible Choice #2

When I saw this bridesmaid dress it just screamed Kardashian! It’s sexy, sultry, and  gorgeous. I also LOVE this color. It’s kind of like a goldish, peachy color. Very beautiful!

 

Possible Choice #3

I can also see Kim K. going for something really classy and formal like black for her bridesmaides. Black seems to be one of her favorite colors, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she chose black fo her bridesmaide’s dresses!

So there you have it. My top three choices for Kim Kardashian’s wedding gown, and top three choices for her bridesmaide’s dresses. What do you guys think? Will I be right on the money? Or not even close? Oh and don’t forget to Like, subscribe and comment! Ciao!

CMT Music Awards Fashion Blunders-What They Could Have Worn!

Alright ya’ll I don’t know if you caught the CMT awards the other night, but there were a few country crooners who just did not cowgirl up! Some of the ladies outfits left me cringing and covering my eyes! Not that I’m an expert in fashion, but some of these ooutfits just didn’t do the trick for me. So I decided that in this blog entry I’m going to makeover the gals that sadly ended up on most everyone’s worst dressed list. Wish me luck!

 

First up is the fabulous Mrs. Nicole Kidman

I love Nicole, but the dress not so much! What is that green suede with blue stripes? And the bottom dress is totally see through! IS that her slip? O.o This outfit is no bueno in my book!

 

Upon seeing this ehh..different outfit, I was inspired to give Nicole a fashion makeover. If I were Nicole’s stylist I think I would have dressed in her in something more like this…

The Dress

 

 

The Shoes

 

The Jewelry

 

Outfit Overview-

I chose a beautiful pewter mermaid dress with a gorgeous single shoulder strap. The earrings are blue amethyst and surprisingly only $50.00 on overstock.com! The shoes, I mean they speak for themselves right? (Unfortunately I just realized I forgot to save the site where I found the shoes and the dress! >_< I will try and find the exact sites for you guys, and update the blog when I find them! I need get more organized. lol

 

So these are my picks for the timeless Mrs. Kidman. What do ya’ll think?

Check out my cheap chic finds below! =)

 

I’m going to start off with ONE pair of sandals. Shoes can go with multiple outfits so buying one pair of shoes goes a LOONGG way. My first cheap chic find were these cute, black,braided thong sandals with an ankle strap from Forever 21.com

 

PRICE: $7.50

Now if that’s not a steal I don’t know what IS!!

 

 So what do we pair these cute sandals with? Hmmm… Well I found this hot little number on Forever 21.com! It’s a cute little strapless, tribal print sundress. I think it might just work ;)

 

PRICE: $12.50

Yes this is the actual price! If I were you girls I’d be hoppin’ over to Forever21.com  and snatching up this dress before they go out of stock! Hurry! Hurry! Get it while it’s still cheap! lol. :P

 

 Alright, so we have trendy shoes and a beautiful summer dress, what is our running total so far? If my math is correct (Which it’s usually not. Lol.) Our total comes out to be $18.00! WHAT? For less than twenty bucks you can have shoes and a dress?! Told you it could be done girls! Seeing a light at the end of the tunnel? Good, me too! :D

Okay so I set the budget for $25.00. Is it possible we can find a purse or accessories for 7.00 bucks or less? Let’s find out!

 

Here is a tote I found on Forever21.com. It seriously one of the cutest totes I have EVER seen! And it matches our color scheme of pink and black!

 

PRICE: $1.50

Oh yeah, you just read that right, ONE freaking fifty! Girls snatch this up, I’m telling ya! We can also use this tote with other outfits and for $1.50 how can you beat that? xD

 

 

The running total now is $19.50! Accessories? I think yes!

 

 I found this little beauty at Forever21.com as well. It’s black which matches the shoes, and it’s going with our bird theme on the tote.

 PRICE: $4.80

 So there you have it my darlings! The total has come out to $24.30! Not bad eh? We have a cute summer dress, some classic black sandals, a bag, AND a necklace all for under $25.00! Recession-smession, you can still look hot and trendy without breaking the bank ;)

Dreams and Goals of Mine

Some people say I plan too much. And I admit I do at times, however I firmly believe in having some sort of direction in life and that involves planning. However, not everything I plan comes to fruition, but thats just life. So what is it that little ole’ me wants out of life? What are my goals for the future? Well if you really wanna know I guess i can tell ya :)

My main goal is to become a working photographer. I want to be getting paid for doing what I love. The ultimate dream of mine regarding photography? Working as a fashion photographer, or as traveling photographer for National Geographic. Or hell, why not both? I wouldn’t be complainin’ if I had both jobs! Thats for sure! I also want to write an e-book or two about how to take amazing photos using your regular old digital camera and how to make them look professional. It’s something I think a lot of people would like to learn about, and I get SO many questions as to how I do what I do. This would be an easy way to answer them all! :D

Speaking of writing, not that I’m so amazing at it ( I need an editor! AHH), but I would love to finish my novel and publish it as an e-book it  for Kindle.  Do I want to  be the next Amanda Hocking? Heck yeah! But this is by far a long shot! :P However, I will give it a go and see what happens. That’s one thing I like about my personality, (And yes ya’ll you shouldn’t be ashamed to like yourself :) I’m really not afraid to take risks. You either succeed or you fail, but at least you tried right?

Speaking of books, did I mention I’m opening up my own online bookstore? It will be a collection of used books, as well as used college textbooks at cheap and affordable prices. It’s always been a true dream of mine to own a bookstore. Of course when I pictured it, my bookstore was ya know, an actual store, and I ran a cute little cafe inside that served coffee and baked goods, but hey, this works too! :)

Let’s see what else? Oh yes! I want to finish school of course! I want to earn my bachelors degree in business management. I’m not aiming for a specific date to finish, because it’s really expensive and the University I want to go to just raised their tuition! 0_0 NOT COOl! I will find my way though, I always do :)

Last but not least, I want to design! I’m a design freak. I like designing clothes, jewelry (Actually just started the jewelry website, so I will be posting that when it’s finished!)and even furniture! So who knows where I will go with all these ideas! Once you start dreamin, and plannin, things fall into place if you work hard enough!! ;) So never stop dreaming, and plan, plan, plan!!

Well that was my “random rant” for the day! Leave a comment, subscribe, or send me a message! Ciao!
