What is a Cowgirl Untamed?

What is a Cowgirl Untamed? A cowgirl untamed is complex gal, but she knows who she is, where she's been and where she's going. She goes through life not giving a rip about societies shortsighted definitions of who a woman is and how she is suppose to act. She works hard, and plays harder. Her attitude is go big or go home! When she walks into the room, she's noticed: her clothing, her jewelry, her personality, and / or her slightly wonky ways. She'll be in bed early enough to get up the next morning for work at the factory or office or on the ranch. She doesn't take any crap, is fearless in life, and rides her horse like she stole it. She dances like nobody is watching. She believes in God, her horse, her family, her country, and most importantly herself. She is who we are or want to be, because she knows how to live life to its fullest. Her great, great grandchildren will still be talking about her. She's a legend in the making.

Corsets are IN STYLE!!!!


Corsets are not just for the bedroom and costumes. Corsets are part of our cultural history. It is probably the most controversial garment in the entire history of fashion.  We've been wearing them from the late Renaissance until now. As crazy as it may seem, for 400 years it was an essential fashion garment, even though it often had a reputation as "an instrument of torture". The construction of the corset has changed over the centuries from a metal cage to a fabric garment with boning made of plastic, bone or metal. Today's corset is a lot more comfortable, and is often worn as a "top" versus a "bra" or undergarment.

They have been worn in a variety of fashion sets: Marie Antoinette, The Wild West, Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift and The Pistol Annie’s.

They come in a variety of materials: leather, faux leather, satin, brocade, denim, patent leather, spandex and more. There are different styles: overbust or underbust (usually worn over a shirt or tee), halter, single shoulder strap, strapless or with straps, front or side zipper, hook and eye or metal slide with lace up back. You can find them in different designs & with a variety of embellishments, as well: Moulin Rouge burlesque, Victorian, Steampunk, sequins, bows, rhinestones, tattoos, denim floral, denim tie dye, lace, chiffon ruffles, and so, so, so much more..

Corsets look great with a short or long skirt, or a pair of jeans. You can wear them with bare shoulders, or cover your shoulders up. To cover your shoulders, a shrug or bolero or cropped jacket is a great choice. Other options are: a long sleeve shirt, a short sleeve top, a lace shirt, a shawl or an appropriate season jacket.

Any age (personally I wouldn't want my young teen or my grandmother wearing these, but that's me) and any style can try this trend. At Cowgirls Untamed we sell many corsets in many styles and sizes. I watch the face of the person I help trying on a corset go from uncertainty and nervousness to happily satisfied with herself as she watches her figure smooth into beautiful female curves and her busts shape, form and lift.

So, take a peek at Cowgirls Untamed's DISCOUNTED corset selection. If you find one you love, but we don't have your size contact us. We'll ask our vendor if we can get it for you. Our size range goes from Small to 6XL. There's a corset for just about EVERY SIZE out there. Try one, I think you'll be pleasantly pleased. Go to www.cowgirlsuntamed.com to find the corset that's perfect for you.

Randsburg "Old West Days"

Hello Cowgirls and Cowboys, we just returned from the Randsburg Old West Days and boy did we have a blast...so to speak. We are members of the reenactors group called "The Ghostriders Outlaw Gang" and we specialize in gun fights from the old west. We had been invited again for the 5th year to take part in the towns annual Old West Days, but this year we had another invation.We were asked to take part in a historical documentary and we all became extra's in a film about the ghost town and it's history. That was a blast as well.  We had a fantastic four days with plenty of gun fights, saloon hussies, lawmen and plain old town folk...not to mention some ghostly encounters along the way. Thanks to all the Randsburg town folk for making us feel at home and to the other reenactors for all your help.

The Vibrant Colors of the Peacock

Peacock colors in fashion and in interior design bring vibrancy, and feel unexpected this time of year. You can make a bold statement by mixing it with gray or ivory, or ground it with black or brown. When used as an accent, it can liven up your room or outfit for very little money. Or you can go all out and give your outfit or room a jewel-like quality that stands out from the crowd and, if done correctly, is in great taste.  Peacock colored jewelry goes with any complexion, and warms up the face and eyes. Blues and greens gor beautifully together, and they don't have to match. For example, instead of wearing turquoise with black, try turquoise and teal. Used with metallics, silver tones bring out the cool undertones and gold brings out the warmer undertones. Blue, green and grey work great with burgandy, mustard, autmnal colors, whites and creams, chartreuse, and almost any color.

Another great idea is to have a party in the peacock colors. Recently, my daughter and son-in-law had their wedding in peacock colors. Peaacock feathers were added to their centerpieces, and as a decoration on their napkins. The bridal table had peacock feather placemats, and peacocks made of lavender as table decorations. They also had peacock feather decorated wine glasses and candles from Z Gallerie. It was done tastefully, and was very elegant. But you could do something similar for a wine party or dinner party.

The blue, green and turquoise colors in the peacock are fantastic for western design and fashion. So, the fact the well known modern day designers in the fashion and design worlds are using these colors, opens their world to us in the western world more. We can now incorporate items that have a western "feel" because of the color, but don't have to be a horseshoe, strictly southwestern or have a cowboy or horse on it. We can blend our decor and fashion sense.

If you haven't added some of the peacock colors to your fashion or home decor, step out of your comfort zone and try it out. But my guess is that you already have with turquoise. Everyone looks good in turquoise, but if you just don't like it try teal or aqua or green in a different gemstone like jasper for that similar western peacock color look. Try it with crystals for a more blinged out look.
