Oh, B/CS. You and your infectious western stylings, You!

Whenever I think of girls in cowboy boots, negative images of Britney Spears and Drew Barrymore in Poison Ivy flood my mind's eye. I have NOT been on board with that look.

The week before last, B asserted his dire need for appropriate workboots that he wouldn't fear scuffing up on worksites, and we set out to satiate his boot appetite. Well, the requisite for workboots slowly morphed into a predilection for something awesome-looking because, and even I have to admit, there were some awesome looking boots there (there being Cavenders)!

B settled on pair manufactored by Ariat, a company that specializes in both English and Western riding boots. Not that we're purchasing horses anytime soon, but...they looked really cool.
After he settled on his pair, I submitted a mild suggestion that we see what we could find in the Ladies Dept. You know...just in case I ever need to help on a worksite...

I don't have boots, yet, but I'm becoming more and more convinced that I may need a pair. Any by "a pair", I mean these by Old Gringo.

What is living in B/CS doing to me? First Tom's and now western boots? I'm not jumping on the Wrangler's band wagon anytime soon, but I think I could swing "cowboy vintage".



    If you're looking for a truly vintage pair, stop by this gem of a store next time you're in Houston. Literally hundreds and hundreds of pairs, all conveniently sorted by size.

  2. haha!
    I thought I was the only person who had ever seen Poison Ivy.

    Also, I find it hysterical that your affinity for Toms and now cowboy boots is attributed to living in College Station.
    I need to get a pair of both, actually...


    what do you think of these?


    I plan on one day getting something like this... Once there is money in our bank account...
