Red Rose of Kansas

This jacket is one of my favorites. I love, love, love embroidery. A while back Coldwater Creek had a  special line of clothing that was a step above the rest of their clothing. I got this on sale and have never regretted getting it. I probably should have worn this on Visible Monday as it was very visible! I wore it with my new cowboy boots. It was embroidery overload and I was so happy wearing it. I kept my jewelry to a minimum today. The cross is one from a company, Morgan Dane, that attempted to compete with Silpada. I like the large bail because it can be used on a wide variety of necklaces. Unfortunately, Morgan Dane went out of business this year. I really liked a lot of their jewelry more than Silpada. The necklace is one I got at Fashion Bug.

Patti @ Not Dead Yet Style asked if you could wear boots like these in Florida. I say yes, it's an attitude and if you have it, no matter where you live, you can carry it off. I think Patti would look fab in them! I see a lot of women here in the winter wearing oversize sweaters, leggings, and cowboy boots (although taller than the ones I have.) When I first got them I told my husband that I felt like a kid again with their first pair of cowboy boots.  When you are a kid, you just don't want to take them off, even to go to bed. It's wonderful to feel like a kid again. Do you have something that makes you that happy?


  1. Red looks really great on you. Your entire look is very current with the trends right now. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

  2. Hi Debbi - hey thanks for mentioning my love of your boots - I wrote about them *again* in my post today! Love your embroidered jacket and the heavy silver cross too.

  3. What a gorgeous jacket. I love how you kept the jewelry simple, but still bold. It sounds like this outfit made you really happy and that's what clothes should do.

    I know when I got my latest Audra Jean harness I wanted (and still do) want to wear it everywhere with everything. I have a personal rule to truly love something before buying so it's hard to have 'favorites' - I want to wear everything all at once!

  4. That's so pretty, and a great look with the boots!

  5. I'm a fan of multi-colored shoes so I love those boots.

    I've got a couple of pendants that I've put onto necklaces from mundane places like Claire's. I can imagine that the silver cross would look good on any number of chains or beads.

  6. It's a gorgeous jacket--is it velvet as well? And, Patti should definitely wear cowboy boots, with skirts, and pre-scuffed!

  7. That jacket is really beautiful. Red is a great color on you!

  8. That's a totally awesome outfit. I would wear it anywhere. All of it.
