Dusty

Dusty by Couture Cowgirl featuring belts

This con-GLAM-oration may be our FAVORITE ensemble that walked the CHS 2010 runway! The dusty eggplant, hand-dyed flowing dress set the stage. A fun focal point was the hand embellished CC logo buckle paired with a black belt by Thistles West. The details in the handpainted butterflies on the jacket by Thistles West is breathtaking! We added glitz with the layers of peacock pearls in the necklace’s and earrings by Silver Steer Design. A touch of funky with the large purple turquoise slab ring.

The top and bottom add a touch of class with the impeccable craftsmanship of the hat by Trent of Greeley Hat Works and the boots by STETSON.

Mask Making 101

Mask making started in the 13th Century in Venice.  Along the way, these highly decorative mask were made out of leather, some say in the 1600s.  I have been fascinated with them since researching mask for a project I was doing with a youth arts organization in Kansas City that worked with adjudicated and inner city youth.  I find mask making such a satisfying form of art, as there are no rules and i can just let my imagination run wild.  The mask I make are purely another form of wearable art.   I love to make things that people can wear, have fun with, and feel wonderful wearing them. 

My masks are made of leather but sometimes I use paper mache to give added texture to them. All are hand painted and some are embellished with Swarovski crystals. They can be worn for Halloween parties or to a masquerade ball. Many people purchase these masks and hang them on their walls for decoration too.

The photos depict the basic stages of making this mask.
Step 1. Cut out a paper pattern

        2. Trace around and cut out of veg tanned light weight leather


       

3. Wet and form


       

4. Paint on stiffener and undercoat


       

 5. Pant all parts


      

  6. Glue all parts on, embellish and add ties

“Sisterhood”

Filed under: Style — Tags: , , , , , , — Missy @ 9:17 am  

It’s bigger than YOU, it’s bigger than ME, its the Couture Cowgirl Sisterhood! Before we loaded up and headed to the CHS fashion show we gave you a sneak peak of the first item in the new “Sisterhood” Collection! This idea came about when we (Meredith and Missy) were discussing the unbreakable bond between cowgirls all over the world. We have watched as you wrap your arms around a fellow cowgirl, who’s heart is breaking, and give her virtual hugs and words of inspiration. A Cowgirl is the strongest woman in the world, but sometimes life throws us curveballs! How wonderful is it to have the support of so many people!!! We have also watched as you praise and give pats on the back as your fellow cowgirls reach their goals!

This group of Cowgirls is a Sisterhood and we are proud to be a part of it! Or first top in the collection is ironically a “Hoodie” A hoodie makes you feel warm and cozy when you slip it on, and paired with jeans it will take you through all your daily chores!

Headed out on the town? Add a skirt and waist belt and you are ready to knock those Cowboy’s boots off!

 

In addition to the sisterhood celtic sign on the hip we added a crystal CC logo to the front for a fun twist to this modern version of the hoodie!  We love the wide neck line and the “Extra Long” sleeves!

It’s all about the STATE OF MIND

Filed under: Style — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Missy @ 9:14 am  

The foundation of Couture Cowgirl has always been more than a brand, it is the STATE OF MIND that defines each and every one of us.  For fall we have introduced a really fun burnout that we dip dyed in one of the hottest colors of the season.  It features the words STATE OF MIND in purple. 

 The background is “A Couture Cowgirl is the girl next door that can drive a tractor, fix a five course meal, watch a baby and still be stylin’. She’s the executive who dreams of wide open spaces. She’s the commuter that would rather be on a horse than the freeway. She loves fashion, she loves the ranch. She is the one who is all woman and can do a man’s job if she needs to. A Couture Cowgirl knows when to walk, when to trot and when to close the gate. She is the it girl, she fixes the fence on the way to town and still looks like a million bucks at dinner.” in silver ink. 

The back left hand shoulder has our Double CC logo and the last line “A Couture Cowgirl is You, Proclaim it Proudly!  And with Style, of course…

Jeans to a skirt and this burnout can take you from Ranch to Runway!

A staple piece in every Cowgirl’s wardrobe is the all too familiar polo. Couture Cowgirl wanted that staple piece to be something fun that you can’t wait to pull from your closet on a daily basis no matter if you are headed out to the barn or dinner.

Love the front…Wait until you see the back of this polo!   Splatter background with embroidery cross detail in vibrant colors that are perfect for every season.  You will make a statement in this piece! 

 You have made your statement in the barn, now lets show you how to take this look out on the town.  Paired with our hand dyed handkerchief skirt, boots by Stetson, jewelry by Silver Steer Designs, and belt by Thistles West.  You have a killer combination that was seen on the runway at the Cody High Style Runway show last week!

“Couture Cowgirl” The scent of COWGIRLS!

Filed under: Style — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Missy @ 6:01 pm  

Many months ago Missy made a trip to Kansas to visit Meredith…we told you we were working on something very exciting, but left your minds to wonder about our secret.  Today Couture Cowgirl will walk the runway at Cody High Style, and we feel this is a perfect day to debut our secret!

Presenting “Couture Cowgirl” perfume! 

Couture Cowgirl’s new signature release is a whimsical and enticing mix of  fruit, berry and citrus rain. A trace of  leather leaves a distinct impression.  This blend is the answer to those seeking a contemporary and crisp blend designed for all seasons.

We are very excited about another aspect of our perfume, we opted to do a roll on versus the spray perfume.  Adelia Ganson explains, “Couture Cowgirl” contains no alcohol, so it doesn’t evaporate like many perfumes.  In scents that contain alcohol, many times the main emphasis of the scent is on the first spray, and the resulting few minutes of scent. Alcohol-based scents evaporate quickly due to high alcohol content, which causes the scent to lose effect very quickly, sometimes in just a few minutes.  Alcohol is also a common allergan and respiratory irritant, though many people don’t know this.  Many times people who think they are allergic to scent are actually allergic to the alcohol in the products they are spraying.   “Couture Cowgirl” contain no alcohol and is designed to last for several hours, so it will change over time on each person’s skin.  This allows for layering of scent that simply isn’t possible with alcohol-based scents. 

Each roll on bottle of “Couture Cowgirl”  will come in a handmade leather bag with a signature Couture Cowgirl tag!

“SISTERHOOD”

Filed under: Style,Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — Missy @ 11:31 am  

When Couture Cowgirl launched, we knew that it was more than a brand!  It was a STATE OF MIND…You have all defined that state of mind in your weekly submissions of your ~COUTURE COWGIRLISMS~ on facebook each Friday!   By the way, this is our favorite day of the week at CC, we love connecting with all of you and hearing what defines the CC STATE OF MIND for you!

There is something else that we have noticed, it is an unexplainable connection of cowgirls.  We will call it a “SISTERHOOD”  At the Cody High Style Show CC will debut the first in our new SISTERHOOD collection.  As Sisters, lets help all our fellow cowgirls celebrate their joys,  support them when the trail gets rough, and be a a trustworthy friend! 

The sneak peek of our first tee in this collection is based around a celtic sisterhood design representing an unending knot that keeps us all tied together.  We hope that you all love our new collection and join the SISTERHOOD of the Couture Cowgirl.

Go West

Filed under: Style — Tags: , , , , — Missy @ 11:30 am  

“Go West”  Is a simple phrase defined by Stetson as, “The longing to leave behind the everyday and set out for parts unknown.”  John B Stetson heeded that call 140 years ago when he created the brand we all know as STETSON, the number one brand in this country!  Couture Cowgirl has had an amazing relationship with Stetson since its debut wearing their jeans in the first photo shoot. 

 As the Cody High Style runway show approaches, STETSON is the go to choice for fun, high quality, classic boots.  Ginger Wallace has been amazing to work with and shipped boots our way today to be modeled with Couture Cowgirl and Thistles West at the 2010 CHS!  We couldn’t be more appreciative of everything Stetson has done for us!!!  Let’s get all you Couture Cowgirl’s in a pair of Stetson’s today!

We found a few HOT boots from STETSON to share with today….but we were careful not to share the boots we picked for the runway show. 

Thank You again Ginger!  We appreciate everything you have done for us and for your friendship!

Couture Cowgirl Hits the Runway

Filed under: Style,Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Missy @ 3:04 pm  

One year ago in September, Meredith Lockhart and Missy Unruh met face to face in Cody WY.  Meredith was attending Cody High Style and Style West with her well known line Thistles West.  Missy was on her first road trip with Silver Steer Boutique.  The ladies enjoyed dinners and conversations about fashion.  This lead to months of phone calls, an unbelievable friendship and soon a partnership that you all know as Couture Cowgirl.

Guess what, it is almost September and Couture Cowgirl has been invited to walk the runway in the prestigious Cody High Style fashion show!  Our fall designs are coming together in jewel tones with a little added splash of  color that will keep summer close all year around.   You will also be able to purchase Couture Cowgirl fashions in downtown Cody, WY in a storefront next door to the famous Irma Hotel.  (Meredith and Missy enjoyed an unbelievable prime rib dinner at the Irma last year!)

We hope that you all will purchase your plane tickets or jump in the truck for a road trip to see an amazing collection of western fashions, jewelry and home furnishings all in one place! The Cody High Style Fashion show will take place September 22 at the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum.  Style West begins September 23 and goes through the 25th!

We love this Couture Cowgirl ensemble and you will see it on the runway in September!  Everything else is a surprise and you will have to visit us in Cody to see the new designs unveiled!  (Or patiently wait for us to post pictures here on CC)

As a Butterfly Flutters By…

Filed under: Style,Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Missy @ 11:46 am  



We are ecstatic to share the newest piece in the Couture Cowgirl line!  Do you remember when we asked you to vote for the color that you would like to see on a Couture Cowgirl piece?  You voted for Indigo, and it was a fabulous choice!  This figure flattering twisted front tee is hand dyed indigo, that was the easy part because you took care of that for us!  Now the decision of what to put on this piece…  Meredith and Missy spent a long time trying to decide on the perfect design and their love of butterflies solved the next piece in the puzzle!  The butterfly represents a peaceful side of the cowgirl.  How many of you enjoy a second to watch as a butterfly flutters by in the hay meadow or graces the heads of wheat?  The ladies behind CC find joy in these beautiful creatures and wanted to include them in the design!  Now for the last part…how to make it COUTURE COWGIRL?  Look closely at the detail in the butterfly wings and you will find hidden Couture Cowgirl C’s!  The embroidery detail is in ice violet and jade lime.

Love the look of the faded indigo and jade lime skirt, this hand dyed beauty is also going to be a new addition to the CC line!  It is graced with crystal accents for a little extra sparkle!

This shirt looks equally beautiful with a pair of your favorite jeans to add a little class to the daily wardrobe!  This is a favorite of the gals behind CC and we are sure it will be a favorite of yours!

 

 

Above we told you about the hidden Couture Cowgirl C’s in the design of the butterflies, we added a close up of the hip design and the shoulder design, lets see if you can find them!

Keep One Eye on the Past while Focusing on the Future

Bright is in for spring and some of my favorite colors that occur in nature are turquoise, coral, terracotta, copper and silver. I love to mix turquoise and coral together in jewelry and painted designs. When we chose our turquoise colored T for Couture Cowgirl, we saw the perfect opportunity to mix a Thistles West coral lambsuede skirt with it for spring. These two colors mixed together  remind me so much of two of my favorite places to go and that is Santa Fe, NM and Verdi Valley at Sedona, Arizona. Late in the afternoon, the sky is deep turquoise against the terra cotta and dark coral in the canyons and is so beautiful!
