First Place-

Jeannie Kiehn

My daughter is a couture cowgirl! She just went on her senior trip and through her graduation ceremony with her cowboy boots on!!! The only one of 120 seniors to proudly wear cowboy boots under that graduation robe! And it was because her fellow school mates love her independence to be a “couture cowgirl”!!!

Second Place-

Ms-Jenn Parrella

I am couture cowgirl because i always ready to get down a dirty, I dont mind dressing up one day then jumping in the mud the next. I am happy girl who knows when you got your boots on no one thinks twice of crossing you. :)

Third Place

Whitney Johnson Jordan Zoeller

Hi Couture Cowgirl~
I’m a Couture Cowgirl because even though I can out-ride, out-shoot, and out-work the men when working cattle I can still clean up and be all girl.
Not many girls can say this, but who else other than a Couture Cowgirl can sport alfalfa in their hair and get away with it? I was all ready for prom when an after hour…s customer showed up and needed a truck load of hay and of course I was the only one around to do it so I changed back into my working clothes loaded up the ton of hay he needed, sent him on his way,picked out as much alfalfa as I could, got back in my dress and headed off to prom !!! Yeah I’m a Couture Cowgirl !!!!

Fourth Place

Lauralee

I am a couture cowgirl at heart. I live in Florida – near the beach, nowhere near a farm – and yet I know that being a couture cowgirl is more about WHO you are, not where you are ♥

Fifth Place

Karen Johnson

I am a Couture Cowgirl because I design my own style! Whether modifying my thrift store finds, or pairing a rock and roll look with my cowgirl boots, I have my own style… just ask my friends who always want to raid my closet! :)

 

Thanks again to everyone who participated and congratulations to the winners!  We are getting ready to kick off another contest so be sure to check back often!

A Cowgirl of a Different Bred!!!

Not every cowgirl comes from the same kind of background. We don’t all live in the country, not all our families own a ranch or farm. A cowgirl to me is a way of life, loving the land and the animals that live on it. My family comes from farming and ranching so I have been raised with a western attitude, even though I grew up in the city known as the Queen City of the Plains, Denver, CO.  A cowgirl always treats everyone with respect; I try to use ma’am and sir as a matter of respect. I may have grown up in the “city” but having 4 acres to play in for hours past the sun going down, not enough to have livestock, but enough to be called a cowgirl by folks from the city. I have been blessed to have so many great family members and friends that have the ranches and farms that I am allowed to visit, hop on a horse and do every day cowboy work. As child I played in the irrigation ditches in the summer, and picked vegetables

A cowgirl of a different bred is sticking to your roots and not caring what others will think. I choose to wear my boots, jeans and t-shirt to class along with a rhinestone belt as an accessory. Bling is a cowgirl’s best friend! I chose to play volleyball instead of rodeo growing up and I have been very successful at it, I have been the one in the gym wearing my lime green boots with my shorts. I have been able to compete against the best teams in the nation and now competing at the college level. Just like being on a rodeo circuit, I as well have been blessed to travel across the USA, always keeping my western values on the court and off.  Like I said before being a cowgirl is a way of life, it is part of your core values, respecting the people, land and animals.  I am pleased when I am on the road with my team and I run across a fellow cowboy, it is like running into a friend you haven’t seen in awhile, there is always something we have in common, and a lot of times we know the same people.

Living in Denver has giving me the opportunity to work at the National Western Stock show since I was in high school.  I have seen what tight knit world farming and ranching is, and enjoys getting to see all of my friends from around the country.  I think it is a great compliment to our culture when you see all the people from the city rocking their western wear.  In our hearts we all have a little bit of cowboy.  One thing I do know is that a true cowgirl can’t have enough boots, belts, hats and horses!

I hope to see you in my travels, you will know me by my cowgirl attitude and of course you can find me at Couture Cowgirl!
