One of the reasons I really like going west to ski is because it’s one of the few places in the country where I feel comfortable wearing my western gear. Lucky for me, my summer home in the Adirondacks is also western-friendly as the area is loaded with dude ranches, one which hosts a rodeo every Tuesday and Friday night. Then there’s the upstate New York place we go for Christmas, a store called The Westerner in Greenville that is everyone’s dream come true for last minute shopping – everything from cowboy hats to belts to horse blankets.

Meanwhile, I was thrilled in 2005 when Brokeback Mountain was nominated for best picture because it gave me the chance to go all denim and fringe to my neighbor’s for a party. I’ve got the hat of course, a great little fringed purse, boots, belts and of course some western style skirts and shirts.

And now I’m here to launch an all out campaign to go western in New England. I’ve got a good friend – a guy who wears western all the time, including the hat, a bolero, and great white shirts and he never leaves home without the boots. Women, we need to give it a try. I know Christy Cashman can pull it off for sure.

This bracelet evokes a post-apocalyptic city licked by neon flames, that or the jewelry all the bombshells in Tron wanted to be wearing but couldn’t afford.  The delicate form of the feathers offsets the futuristic angles and hard edges in the bracelet; thus creating a simple yet interesting contrast that could be worn day into night.

This cuff is a total conversation piece, and it could even function as a Rorschach test of sorts – if your new friend/suitor/business partner doesn’t see something exotic in the bracelet, they probably won’t be worth your precious time. Just saying.
