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.
this post has really taken me long enough, because jeff bridges has the best personal website EVER and it deserves to be thrown around all over the internet all the time. have you seen his photography? these were from making true grit…
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.
either way, i do make exception for (a) vintage / anything mad men related (that’s a given) and (b) cowboys / western. the fact is, i wouldn’t mind if people dressed in western gear all the time. it’s probably because i find cowboys ridiculously attractive. imagine don draper dressed as a cowboy! doubley attractive heart attack right there.
