Smexxxy Friday (Cowgirls?)

What is it about cowgirls people find so irresistible? Is it her "free spirit?" Her short frilly skirt? Her ability to wield a gun and ride a horse? What IS it? 

In Texas, I see a lot of cowgirls. Like...literally, they're everywhere. And I have to admit, when I first moved here, I couldn't help but laugh at them. Huge oversized hats, obnoxious leather boots and skimpy outfits seemed a little much for a fashion statement...not to mention the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders who are plastered just about everywhere where I live. Hard to take these gals seriously. But I guess that's the point. 

The modern "cowgirl" doesn't know the first thing about frontier life--she'd rather hang out at Starbucks and text her friends than jump on a saddle and round up cattle. The "cowgirl" has become something of an "aesthetic," and as much as I tried to abstain from absorbing Texas culture, I'm ashamed to admit I've finally cracked. 

Yes. I eat fried pickles (and fucking LOVE them). I can order a meal in Spanish (Una cerveza pour favor!) I adore Tex-Mex (Mmmm...can we say chile relleno?) I no longer mind seeing longhorns strapped on the hood of pickup trucks. And I bought my first pair of cowgirl boots last weekend. 

After three years, I couldn't resist, dammit! I wanted to be a cowgirl too! So I present to you a violation of my 8yr boycott on leather products. 

Does this make me a hypocritical vegetarian? Yes. Most probably. But being a cannibal kinda puts me in the hypocritical category too, I guess. The boots were really cute. Soooooo...I made an exception, haha! Have a good weekend, guys!

You can look at it as you are not letting the leather go to waste, since they already processed the rest of it. And it's not a product that will be consumed all the time. Those boots will last you a long, long time. You look cute in them!

Oh, and the t-shirt that says Fuck y'all I'm from Texas? I bought a friend of mine a t-shirt from here in Jersey that had the map of Texas and the saying Don't mess with Jersey with two brass knuckles on it, LOL!

HAHA! Funny shirt! I wouldn't mess with NJ, either. Y'all are tough! And thanks for the compliment. I love my boots. I wanna kick butt when I wear them, haha!

Oh and your book is in the mail! You should get it between March 8-March 10th! :D
