Cowgirl + Biker Chick = Identity Crisis??

Hmmmm I suppose not really. I mean there are a number of similarities between the two. They both have fast, powerful, and ever so good looking
modes of transportation
Which require super cute boots to tame their rides,

and look GOOD while doing it!!!!
One thing is for sure they both share a love affair with denim. Yep good old been everywhere, done everything denim.

My ever so kind and generous Bloglandian Sister, Deryn-Something Sublime has been such a wonderful friend in many ways. One of course is all the "Muling" she has so willingly (well I hope willingly?)done for me. As a small thank you I decided I would try to bring these seemingly dissimilar career paths, of a Cowgirl & Biker Chick together in one little "vestita" Wow I'm telling you it wasn't easy. But as it turned out I'm rather pleased with the results. I started with a  bit of vintage tea dyed lace because everyone knows that both these independent girls have a soft spot for lace. ;)
Add in some denim, and pretty pieces of vintage lace trims, that just so happen to have taken a bath in a tea cup. :)
A bit more denim and what self respecting Cowgirl-Biker Chick doesn't want to sport just a touch of bling??
There is always room for a tad more denim, and just a hint of tea dyed floral chintz to show the soft side of these two hard livin workin kinda girls.
Course neither one would ever be so silly as to wear her heart on her sleeve. But it still isn't to hard to get to. That is if you have the key.
Throw in a final helping of denim and you end up with a "vestita" that looks like this.
I'll send this up to the Northlands to be posted to dear Deryn on Tuesday. That's when the most adorable "Mule" this or any side of the Rio Grande wings his way to Colorado to visit his mum. Then all I have to do is keep my fingers crossed that both alter-egos will approve and enjoy wearing their shared vestita.

Here wishing you all an audacious art filled day no matter where in the world you are  p;)
