You've seen these velvet cigarette pants before, but I’ve just realized what a perfect pair of cowgirl pants they make. In them, I’m ready to face the world with a raucous whoop. I actually wore this outfit to the Topanga Folk Fest the other day, which was not really the best idea since it was nearly 100 degree outside, and velvet=sweaty buns. On this day, I split the butt seam, and that was even before I got to square dancing. Luckily, I had a sewing kit in my car, and it was an easy fix. Along with these pants, this Victorian crop top is another wardrobe fave. I wear it all the time; it’s made some frequent appearances on the blog. Considering its age, it’s a miracle that it has held up so well.
Outfit: 50s velvet cigarette pants (Ebay), victorian crop top (Antique store on Hwy 395), vintage shortie cowboy boots (thrifted), vintage cowboy hat (Antique Mall in Long Beach).
