Darling Dames, Retro Leopard Stud Earrings

Darling Dames, Retro Leopard Stud Earrings.

For a girl who adores Leo Print I came to realize I don’t own a lot to account for that love. I have decided it is time to change this and start building my collection and the Retro leopard stud earrings at Darling Dames was the best place to start.

These fashion earrings are made in the shape of a heart with the leopard print center detailed with rhinestones. The backings that come with the earrings have larger backs so the earrings sit nicely on your ear.

 

The earrings are a nice size and the shape being a heart is flattering to the jaw line/bone. They have a very vintage look and once I put my leopard dress on I was quite thrilled how the two came together.

I found them to be the purrr-fect addition to my collection and do believe I will get a fair amount of wear from them.

 

These earrings came from Darling Dames, an on-line shop.

 

I came across their FB Page first and then I realized the Page was one of their social media platforms. I decided to go window shopping and found myself captured by a few items on the site.

I have often said that my purchasing experience is as important as the product I am acquiring. Owner Jessica was an absolute Doll and was willing to move heaven and earth to ensure my items were going to meet my needs.

She tells me the on-line store is growing and new merchandise is being added. Jessica has a background in Retail and Merchandising and Darling Dames was established in 2011 as a small physical retail shop in Taylor, Texas and has since moved on-line to reach a greater clientele.

 

Darling Dames boutique is a small start up that’s desire is to cater to woman whose style is strongly influenced by current fashion trends and to provide them a moderately priced product trendy product in return. Darling Dames strives to meet concise customer service standards and it shows. You always want to return as a client when you are appreciated and treated like gold.

 

I would highly recommend checking out their site and.. xx

The BOSS MARE, Betty

The Boss Mare, Betty..

The Boss Mare is the lead female horse within a herd.. She is who all the other horses look up to yet she has her responsibilities to the herd as well..

We have always had horses and years ago it came to me that I was the Boss Mare of our 2 legged herd.. As the Mum it is my job to ensure the youngest are safe, we have food and shelter when needed.. I require respect in a firm yet loving way to ensure we work together..

An animal can teach you much about life when you are quiet enough to listen and learn.. Admiration for horses and their way has helped me be the Mum I am today..

This independent character was the natural progression for me to embrace as she has taught me so much.. It was really only a matter of time before she required her own stage or mark on the social media platforms in the world of internet..

Boss Mare Betty is one of the many facets of myself. My daily life is about being on a farm, tending to small animals and the care of our horses.. The children are in an environment that allows them the natural freedom of simply being kids and because my husband and I have made choices for us to live our dream we are very happy and committed to each other even after 10 years of marriage..

We do not live that close to the nearest town.. Our favourite city is a 7 hour drive. We are really out in the tullies as they say.. If you were to stop by on any given day I would greet you in johdpurs and paddock boots.. That is unless it is our 6 month winter I am bundled up in snow pants and snow gear braving the -40.

So this you see is why going to town is a big deal, I average a trip about once a week to stock up on food and supplies and this is when Betty emerges..

My husband and I have a shared passion of tattooing, car culture and of course Pin Up.. Town days are my opportunity to step out into the world as cute as can be.

I decided it was time to showcase my interest, photo’s, reviews and journalling as it is lonesome being the only Doll in town.. ❤ YET since getting active on-line I have learned from Betty that the sky is the limit and I can make things happen.

I chose the name Betty an accumulation of woman that have stood out over time, from Betty Boop to Bettie Page and all the skater Betty’s..

For me these two names married well <3.

Although the worlds of farm life and Pin Up style are very opposite to each other, they have also complimented each other and helped me stand apart.. Living on the farm keeps me grounded and allows me to get dirty, where as Betty allows me to dress up, create and do the things that gurl’s dream of..

I love when these two worlds come together.. It is the most honest of places I come from when I am with the horses and to play and dress up including them, being inspired by them is such a reward.. ❤
