poor documentation

Hey, I know there are a few serious hipstamatic haters out there (Angela, Photo Degree Girl,  I do not mean to offend you with these images, I was just not allowed to bring a real camera to the show) but I am happy to have the option of it when I am in situations where I make friends with drunk girls in cool cowboy boots in the bathroom at a rockabilly show.  It happens to me every time I go out actually (which I assure you is not very often).  Last night we saw our friend's band "The Darlins" and guess who they opened for?????  Charlie Daniels.  Do you know Charlie Daniels?  I didn't, ashamedly, until last night.  He is the guy who wrote and sings "The Devil Went Down to Georgia."  It WAS AWESOME. Classic Country.  I am not usually a country fan. This stuff is pretty great though.

So, I was all pumped to wear the red outfit, but I honestly felt like a tart, harlot so I changed. There was nothing showing or anything, I mean I was wearing shorts and stockings, but I think I will save this outfit for a costume party.  I have a red straw hat too so maybe I will be a pinup cowgirl this year. Anyone having a party?  Can I bring my Hipstamatic?

Top: Dress, hat, purse, belt: thrifted vintage
Red cowboy boots: Thrifted vintage (and make me feel like the crazy chick from Footloose)

Bottom: Dress, hat, belt: thrifted vintage
Shoes: Some brand from Marshalls
Serpent Stockings: Agent Provocateur

What a cute outfit!!!
I have some Charlie Daniel's Band looping within my Neil Young / Emmylou Harris! Stop by and get ya a dose, darlin'!!!! He is one of the few "LucindA Williams" esque genre's who was a country "star", but really was more alternative "country". At Mix/pod, check out "Easy Rider" where he goes into a gay bar. Too funny! We old school rockers love Charlie, as he plays a mad "fiddle" and is a terrific song writer! He also has a version on Guitar Hero and was covered by many rock bands. Yee-Haw!!!

Wife-a-Licious said...

Uhm that is possibly one of the most fantastic dresses I have ever, ever seen. I believe in thrifting all over again.

Trishna said...

OMG You look hot so so hot. I love this look. OMG I don't think I have ever been this excited to see an outfit. :)

Corie said...

Oh it's too bad you didn't wear the red dress! So so pretty! You look gorgeous as always in your other outfit and I understand how you feel hehe, sometimes I think, hm I like this..but do I look like a hooker? However, this does not look harlot-ish at all! So cute!

Charlie said...

amazing outfit, love the stockings!

The Daily Fashionista said...

Your red outfit is amazing!!! I understand the reason for not wearing it to the show though. But you can totally pull it off as a saloon girl for Halloween.

Ashley said...

Oooo, I really like the red dress! It reminds me of a petticoat, which for some reason I'm totally into...The red cowboy boots are pretty awesome too! Charlie Daniels seems like he would be really fun in concert.

xoxo, Ashley

I honestly think you could have carried it off; you have such strength of character.

Snappy-Q said...

I love both outfits, and am digging those red boots!

And I love my Hipstamatic app on my iPhone and use it all the time... even though I also have a much nicer DSLR that I use for most of my photos. It is just so fun to play around with and I love the effects it creates. So even though there may be haters out there, I say go for it anyway because there are lots of us who love it too!
