you may remember this post i did on vintage cowgirls. well, i occasionally delve into the LIFE archives in search of more cowgirl related paraphernalia (if for no other reason than to amuse myself) and i’ve recently found some total gems.
it’s kind of a running joke amongst my friends that i dislike dress up parties. don’t know why, maybe because people can’t seem to throw parties without some kind of theme attached, no matter how lame (wear a funny hat!) or maybe it’s because we don’t celebrate halloween in south africa & so didn’t grow up with that ritual of finding a costume every year.
