Shop Love – Western Spirit




Over a maxi dress or an old t-shirt anyone?
Sick fringe jackets

I have absolutely no reason to wear one but I’ve always loved Indian head pieces. The bigger the better
Love these pictures 
Love the brown boots on the far right
Uh- mazing metal tips for your boots (and they don’t have to be cowboy boots)
Guess which two I bought
I walk around in these like slippers at home
Perfect for winter
Striking statement necklace
Upgrading my All Saints (on sale here in suede)
A little pressie for you lot 🙂
Oh Karen breathe.  Just – breathe – iiiiiin – ouuuuuttt.    I think I hyperventilated walking into this shrine to anything Western and Navajo. 
When I look around at all the online summer look books, there’s always a running thread of either of these two elements and Western Spirit has to be THE mother ship for that.  I’m not expecting you to morph into a tobacco spitting cowboy, but this place honestly feels like a secret cave for picking up one thing to inject some authentic Southwestern influence. Even if it’s just a friggin’ T-shirt (pic 13).  I bought two – I’ll cut the sleeves off and wear as tanks. 
There were two fellow Brits in the shop: “oh my God,” they were saying, “this place is bloody amazing.” We ended up talking to each other, nodding our heads, pointing to pieces on the wall, pointing at the jewellery, the boots, the jackets – the whole bloody lot.  “London’s so boring compared to this” sighed one. “I wouldn’t go that far, but I know what you mean” I replied.
ps. That’s my trusted old All Saint boots in the last pics. I had metal tips added per the below before/after post.  Western Spirit let’s you pick ones you want (pic 12) and will add them to your boots (approx $20-ish a pair).  I was in LF recently and the sales assistants were asking where my metal tipped boots were from and immediately grilled me on how/where they can get metal tips added to their suede desert ankle boots.  Tips work perfectly if you have boots like this or these

    I have loved anything western/indian since my aunt bought me my first pair of Minnetonka booties when I was a little girl, been wearing some version of them ever since…yes, I’d go crazy in a store like this, but the key is, unless you really ARE a cowboy or an indian, is to wear one thing at a time….of course, no one was happier than me to see fringe come back into vogue, because I have been wearing it for years.

    About the indian headpieces, or “war bonnets” – they are not a fashion piece, and I believe it is very upsetting for natives to see them used as such. These bonnets have a very heavy spiritual and religious significance to Native Americans. It is an honor well earned to be able to wear one, not something to be taken lightly. There was a huge uproar when photo shoots for fashion magazines portrayed half naked models in them, and then Vic. Secret used them on models in their fashion show a while back – leading to them making a public apology to Native Americans over it.

    Just sayin’…
