Dwell Dressed – Western Chic
My favorite rooms have a definitive style. Even when the style isn’t my own, I can appreciate a space that is confident and distinctive. This month’s room for Dwell Dressed is such a space. It has such a strong point of view; it was easy to imagine the woman who would call this space home.
I believe the occupant of this space would be a tiny spit-fire Texas lady in her 60s with long white hair. I can even envision a name for her – Georgina. Her daddy was in oil, so she has money. Her husband is a rancher with his hand in state politics. She entertains herself by running a high-end antique shop. It doesn’t make much money, but it keeps her busy and fulfilled. Here is her ensemble:
1. A huge rock graces her finger. The gaudier, the better.
2. This statement necklace in off-white is perfect for our lady. It is bold, and the sparkle appeals to her flashy side.
3, 4 & 5. While Georgina is a strong-willed southerner, I believe she gravitates to the feminine in terms of clothing. This lightweight cardigan with chic bow will look terrific over the shimmery ruffled tank and flowing suede skirt.
6. Boots are a must. The shade of these give them a feminine edge and keep them in our soft, neutral palette.
