Wild and Western! Grace Goes Country Options…

f

3D Ranch - The Market

 Besides the fact that we live in Oklahoma and cowboy boots and western wear are fairly common, it’s also time for the Grace Goes Country event that benefits the Grace Hospice Foundation. It’s THIS Friday, September 21,2012. If you are still looking for some ideas on ‘what to wear’, here are a few places to check out! 

3D Ranch - The Market

 Who doesn’t love the traditional silver and turquoise combination, in jewelry, when it comes to the wild, wild west? I love it! And, the red tones are gorgeous too. 

A variety of ways to accessorize any outfit. 

And, did you check out the boots? Loving the vibrant floral, color combination. Rugged, yet, feminine, all at the same time. 

3D Ranch carries a variety of boots by Lane and Old Gringo. I have a pair from 3D Ranch, that were, recently, shown in the collegiate wear segment. It’s a cowboy boot with side zippers. So, for those of you, with a high arch, like me, you can actually get your foot into them. They are wonderful and I am planning my outfit around them for this upcoming event. 

And, rumor has it…a pair of turquoise boots are on their way too! So, keep an eye out – I’m sure they will disappear quickly. 

3D Ranch can be found at The Market, which is at the corner of 81st/Harvard. (There are many booths certain to ‘catch your eye’ on inside!) 

 

Donna's Fashions

And, if it’s an outfit you are looking for, BEFORE adding jewelry and boots, you better head to Donna’s Fashions. 

Donna’s carries a variety of clothing.  But, am certain you will find a little western flare in some of the styles and brands. Strictly, my opinion…but, I think, Donna, herself, is a ‘little bit city’ and a ‘little bit country’. She finds fun and unique looks to combine the best of both worlds for her customers. 

Rustic Cuff is a great jewelry option that is offered at Donna’s too. Made from a variety of textures, fabrics, leathers, and other animal skins, it is a perfect element to add to an outfit for a more ‘subtle western flare’. 

Whether you are more ‘city girl’ than ‘country girl’, Donna’s is sure to set you up in style for any look, western, or not, for any upcoming event you may have on your calendar. 

Donna’s Fashions can be found at 101st/Yale. 

 

Rockin' Sooner Ranch

 

 If you are in the Brookside area, Rockin’ Sooner Ranch is another fun shopping destination sure to fill your western needs. 

Rockin’ Sooner Ranch carries a plethora of merchandise that ranges from clothes to jewelry to boots to home decor. All with it’s own western/southwestern flare. 

Another fabulous destination that will take you by surprise with all of their merchantile treasures. 

Whether you have ‘country’ in your blood or need a ‘little country’ for an event – all of these retailers are sure to give you plenty of choices to complete the look that YOU are looking for….

I hope to see many of you at the Grace Goes Country event this Friday. It supports the Grace Hospice Foundation – which helps fund various hospice centers around Eastern Oklahoma. 

What a fun way to help support a great cause! 

I’m ready for a boot-scootin’ good time! Are you?

What is Harley and Maudes?

harley and maudes

A friend of mine asked me “What is Harley and Maudes?” She had never heard of it until I sent her an invite to the party a few weeks ago. (If you missed it – you missed out! It was a blast! Will keep you posted on future events!) 

Back to my friend…Clearly, she spends ALL of her time at work or under a rock (HA! She really does spend a lot of time at work), otherwise she would have FOR SURE been able to answer her own question. 

Harley and Maudes is EXACTLY what you see in the picture (look to your left)! It’s ‘Junk Jewelry” at it’s best! Trinkets everywhere! A fun and unique way to create your own jewelry. Perfect for yourself and to use as gifts for family and friends!

It is a jewelry party where YOU pick your own “junk”. Tables filled with glass charms scattered about in all shapes and sizes, tubs of smaller charms, buckets of initials, and muffin tins of beads in every color you can imagine. And, YOU, only you, get to decide what the combination will be to put on the chain.  Get this…you even get to pick out your own chain too!

Oodles and oodles of charms!

My custom pieces!

It can be very overwhelming! Not going to lie, my first party, I was a “deer in the headlights”. Didn’t know where to start and what to do. But, there is a way to do it without getting overwhelmed…you can take the easy way out and buy the pre-made necklaces (which is what I did at the first party). Or, you can come up with a strategy – pick a theme and/or a color combination ahead of time. Maybe, you see a charm with your favorite saying and it goes from there.

It can be very hard to pick just one. And, don’t worry, they have all kinds of helpers there to guide you through the process and put the necklace together for you when you have picked out your charms.

Just take your time and in the end, you will have a FABULOUS piece (or pieces) of custom jewelry! LOVE, LOVE, and LOVE! 

Harley and Maudes isn’t a store though, it’s an event that takes place in different locations. Subscribe to this blog and my Stylish Stepmom facebook page so you can know when the next event is going to be.

Make a Statement!

Make a Statement…WITH a STATEMENT NECKLACE. Now, what are the qualifications for a necklace to be called a “statement necklace”? Well, it’s the necklace that stops you in your tracks when browsing in a store or when someone walks by with one around their neck. It’s a piece of jewelry that is, typically, ornate, oversized, and intricate.

Statement necklaces are PERFECT for dressing up a basic t-shirt, tank, or dress. A piece like this DEFINITELY STANDS ALONE. Do not…I repeat…do not bury yourself in other pieces of jewelry when wearing a statement piece and/or competing prints. The statement necklace is there to….you know…say it with me….MAKE A STATEMENT!
Now, keep in mind their is STATEMENT JEWELRY like ornate, oversized bangles or earrings too. But, it’s the STATEMENT NECKLACE that really catches MY eye!
J. Spencer Jewlery, a local spot in Tulsa, carries a few of the Statement pieces as I was there over the weekend buying a birthday gift. I actually carried a statement necklace around with me for quite awhile before deciding I had to show some self-restraint and ONLY BUY THE BIRTHDAY GIFT!
Okay, I know what you’re thinking…if Stylish Stepmom didn’t buy one, why would I want to buy one? Well, no worries there, as I have a few of them already hanging in my closet! HA!

A word about Stella and Dot. Take a look at their website. They have some REALLY FABULOUS statement pieces in their inventory. It is a direct marketing company where they show their inventory via an “in home showing”. It is some really fun merchandise, so check it out and find a stylist near you! (If you live in the Tulsa area and are interested, I can give you the name of two stylists that I know in the area.)
Don’t delay….find a statement necklace that makes YOUR statement today!
