Skirts, Slips & Boots…

crinoline skirts

We added to our collection of crinoline skirts and slips over the weekend.  The place was crazy with them.  Every color, size, shape * on gals of every age (size/shape) * layered on top, underneath * used as chandeliers…  Cowboygirl boots were another favorite ♣.

I think that Miss Libby thought she was the Belle of the Ball.

I didn’t tell her any different!

  2. I think you should try and utilize the hoop skirt in your booth sometime. It’s super fun 🙂

  3. We loved being your neighbor at the Farm Chicks. It made it so easy to tell everyone where we were located since you had that snappy black and white striped awning plus the won derful mannequin as your flagpole. Hope you are getting some well deserved rest.
