Brit West Summer Fashions

Cottage Craft Style

Most likely you are familiar with Brit West's line of jewelry, belts, hats and hatbands. However, did you know that she also creates beautiful dresses, vests, and coats? Brit even has a lovely line of summer dresses and slips that are comfortable, cool, and romantic.

What could be better than a white cotton dress on a hot Summer day? Brit West's Summer Slip (left, $148) works as a tank dress or as a layering piece under Brit's Summer Dress. It also looks fabulous with one of Brit's vests. It is made of Egyptian cotton trimmed with white Venetian lace, and it is meant to have a slightly oversized fit.

Brit West's Summer Dress (center, $198) is made of lightweight breathable linen trimmed in beautiful Venetian lace. You can wear it belted or loose as a dress, or as a tunic with jeans. This dress has a generous cut, and it is shown here with the Aspen Slip as an under layer.

Brit West's Aspen Slip (right, $188), like the Summer Dress, is made of lightweight linen trimmed with Venetian lace. Fun and flowing, it can be worn belted or loose. It also looks great worn with a vest or light jacket. Paired with the Summer Dress, it has even been worn as a wedding dress!

These fun dresses and slips are available now on the Brit West website, along with a large selection of hand crafted leather accessories and jewelry.

Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale

At The Autry Museum, February 6 - March 20, 2016

The Masters of the American West Fine Art Show and Sale opens this coming Saturday, February 6 at The Autry Museum of the American West. It is considered to be the country's premier Western art show, and it is one of my favorite annual events at The Autry Museum. Each year more than 70 nationally recognized contemporary Western artists challenge themselves to create and exhibit their very best work. Stylistically and thematically diverse, thier works represent the extraordinary range of subject matter that contemporary, historic, and mythic Western experiences inspire.

This year's exhibition and sale opens on Saturday, February 6, with a ticketed opening day program that includes presentations by award-winning painters Logan Maxwell Hagege and George Carlson, a barbecue luncheon, and the awards presentation. Saturday's events continue into the evening with a cocktail reception and the art sale, where 275 fixed price works will be sold through a drawing.

I have reviewed several of the paintings that will be featured in the Masters of the American West Art Exhibition and Sale, and I can't wait to see them in person. I have a special affinity for landscape paintings and I am excited to see "Morning Serenity" (left) by one of my favorite artists, Denis Milhomme. The painting features an early November midmorning moment in Yosemite Valley. "Teton Summer" by Robert Peters (right) showcases Mt. Moran in a beautiful scene from Grand Teton National Park, one of my favorite vacation spots.

If you live anywhere near Los Angeles, you won't want to miss this extraordinary exhibit of fine Western art. The exhibition is open to the public Tuesday - Friday, 10 - 4 PM, and Saturday - Sunday, 10 - 5 PM through March 20, 2016. Visit The Autry website for more information, and to purchase tickets for the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibiton and Sale Opening-Day Events.

Elegant Ranch Silver Jewelry

Native American Chic from Teskey's

I love the Elegant Ranch line of sterling silver jewelry by Two Grey Hills, and I have wanted to feature it in my blog for quite awhile. Two Grey Hills is located in Corrales, New Mexico, and they create and sell authentic Native American jewelry to museums, galleries, upscale boutiques, and National Parks. All Elegant Ranch Jewelry is hand crafted by Native American artisans, and no color enhanced stones or machine made components are used.

Teskey's Saddle Shop of Weatherford, Texas carries a huge selection of Elegant Ranch Jewelry on their website (over 85 pieces), including earrings, rings, pendants, necklaces, and cuff bracelets. I wish I could feature all of my favorite jewelry pieces here, but there are too many! 

In my opinion, you can never have too many pairs of turquoise earrings. The Elegant Ranch Kingman Turquoise Earrings (left, $244.99) would make a stunning addition to my collection. The Elegant Ranch Sterling Silver Starburst Cuff (center, $359.99) is hand stamped and hand engraved, and it is on my wish list. There is a more narrow version of this cuff available on the Teskey's website, and it is called the Rosette Cuff. I also collect cross jewelry, and I have my eye on the Elegant Ranch Kingman Turquoise Cross Pendant (right, $449.99). It is a beautiful one of a kind piece.

These are just a few examples of the beautiful Native American Jewelry created by Two Grey HIlls. Head over to the Teskey's website to see more and make online purchases. Valentine's Day is only a few weeks away, and you can never go wrong with the gift of sterling silver jewelry!
