How the WILD West is Worn: Paris Montana NOUVEAU WEST Style

As a fav sayin goes: "A good friend will bail you out of jail, a BEST friend will be sitting next to you."  

The last time my BFF Claudia--since our growing up years in Montana--was sittin next to me long enough for us to get into that kind of trouble, we were heading to Cali out on the open road, top down, with a cutout of Brad Pitt on a stick in the backseat! LOL! 

In just a couple weeks, we are loading up the Paris Montana Blacktop Boudoir Airstream, and she's joining me on my annual selling trip out West (up North if you want to get all technical) to our home state of Montana where Mama Luv and the gang will be setting up camp.

Burnout Velvet and Lace Tank Tunic

Since every trip has to have a theme, we're celebrating "How the WILD West is WORN" Paris Montana NOUVEAU WEST style by showcasing our latest collections of ruffled chaps, burnout velvet and lace tunics and Baroque & Rusted Jewelry.

You know how 92.7% of the time when you see a pic of yourself you wish something was different (hair, weight, smile, angle, your whole life, LOL!)? When I saw this pic of myself that Gypsy Sister Tricia, Vintage Bliss took, my first thought was: "That's ME. In my element. In front of my gypsy Airstream. Wearing ripped denims and the leather fringe jacket I designed. Perched on my crumbly peely Louis. Smack dab in the middle of it." (Then, of course, I went after the bangs, chin challenge, and why do my feet look so huge....LOL!) 

About this time last year we officially closed our bricks and mortar shop and hit the road with our own wholesale designs. At times it HAS felt like jumping off a cliff ala Thelma and Louise. But at moments like this, when life is captured in the perfect light; when everything feels right to the bone, you realize: THIS is why I keep choosing the unknown over safe certainty. This is what LIVING MY life is about. 

I say the next time your life is captured in the perfect light, soak it up, breath it in, roll around in it! There will be plenty of time to ponder why you thought you looked younger without eyeliner, or just who was that crafty salesgirl who talked you into believing you still look fabulous in short shorts...

See you down the road!
