Kiss Kiss, Bang, Bang (part 1 of Fated to Pretend)

 For the very first of my "Fated to Pretend" (count down to Halloween) series I went with something super classic that I've never done before. I know Cowboy was one of the few that you guys didn't get to vote for. I knew that I wanted to do this costume and I knew I had all the pieces to pull directly from my closet which was very appealing. This undertaking has great potential to be very expensive.

 I had such a blast with this! Running around the meadow on my Monty Python style imaginary horse shooting bandits. I really channeled my Fievel Goes West fantasies from childhood. (wow. TWO nerdy references in one paragraph.)

                                                           Do I even kind of look like I could be a good shot?

Finger Bang.
 I created these earrings for this cowboy outfit. The acrylic guns made them super light. I love the vintage stars and ombre Swarovski!

Hat: Vintage
Blouse: Delias* (really old)
Bandanna: So old I think it may be vintage. (I used to wear it to girl scout camp)
Belt: Frye (found thrifting!)
Skirt: Thrited
Underskirt: Forever 21
Tights: Hot Topic
Boots: Destroy
Jewelry: Vintage Star pin, and Corvidae Jewelry

I had such a blast with this!
Stay Tuned for MORE! 


  1. Love it! Those earrings make me wish I had pierced ears!!


  2. This is a totally fabulous outfit! I love the finger 'bang'! It's my very favorite :)

  3. Jana: Want to make a date with a piercing parlor? I'd be happy to go with you. I still owe you from collecge when you went with me for my tetnis.

    Megan: "Bang" was my favorite too.
