Dale Evans, Queen of the West

... is the very best ♥ 


" 'Cowgirl' is an attitude really. A pioneer spirit, a special American brand of courage. The cowgirl faces life head-on, lives by her own lights, and makes no excuses. Cowgirls take stands; they speak up. They defend things they hold dear." -- Dale Evans

  3. LOVE Dale & Roy. Their museum used to be out here before it was moved to Branson, MO. We were lucky enough to go there when we were young to see Trigger and the amazing collection of western wear. What I wouldn't give for all of their clothes! It just doesn't get better!!!

  5. Hi, I've been reading your blog for a while and never commented. Just wanted to say I love your style! I so wish I could dress in vintage clothes every day! I have several vintage items for more dressy occasions, but would love to have more every day items. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and pass along the Wikipedia link on Dale Evans. She had an interesting life. No idea about some of these things. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dale_Evans I'm from Oklahoma and live not too far from the Dale Rogers Training Center, so I knew about her work with the mentally challenged but had no idea about her early life.
    Keep up the good work with the blog!

  6. Hear hear! I'd kill for that lady's wardrobe, and Roy's too! (Wouldn't mind Roy himself actually ;)

    Jenan: Thanks! Yes, she sounds like such a neat lady in all aspects of her life. Didn't know she eloped at 14 though! D:
