Western Romance

An editorial with a romantic western flair. Easy to adopt if you love these looks and fuss makeup is always a plus factor when you are pressed for time.


A romantic and urban twist on old western style. I absolutely love the pleats cutouts, scallop, ruche and layer details on the sheer lace blouses. These delicate details add a romantic and vintage appeal and reminds me of those romantic or renaissance times when there was so much focus on intricate details. Suede, leathers, fringe details on jackets and shorts, western inspired buckled belts and detailed cowboy boots used for a western appeal. Soft wavy hair, natural earthy makeup, Aztec print bags, turquoise and western inspired jewelry complete these looks. I absolutely love the last picture. The black and white picture brings out the details of the worn-off braids on the model’s soft wavy hair, fringes on the dress and the textures on the belt / necklace so well.

    I loved reading this post. It gave me the idea to ride the ride I have been contemplating lately, making a post with this western skirt that I found for a true steal. A dollar, wo-man.
