Sistas in the Canyon & Darlings of the Dust Bowl

by 1 April 30, 2010 1 min read 4 Comments

Patricia Fowler won last weeks tee giveaway when she sent a "thank you" note to her mom showing her love and appreciation for her induction to the West.

. Patricia's mom and aunts worked at the Bright Angel Lodge in Grand Canyon, Arizona during the late 1930s as chamber maids and would trek down into the canyon in their dungarees.   Here are a couple of pictures of Patricia's mom and her  aunts. . Interestingly, my research is showing a lot as far as faded denim work-clothes goes.   "Dust Bowl Darlings" is an emerging trend for spring '11. . [caption id="" align="alignright" width="264" caption="Bright Angel Lodge, 1935"][/caption] I couldn't help but look up the 'Bright Angel Lodge'- it's still there and in full operation.  A great example of "Parkitecture"!
makes me want to visit the Grand Canyon this summer ...right after I finish my depression-esque denim group!

My namesake is the beautiful woman that Patricia wrote about. I carry a bit of her with me every day in my heart and around my wrist, where four of her silver bangles jingle. Thank you for posting the photos! I love your company’s concept and style!
Anne’s granddaughter, Anne!

Of all the warm memories we have of our Granny Eller (Eloise), the summers we spent with her on a South Texas dude ranch stand out the most.

This collection was heavily influenced by vintage vibes and what is more retro-western than traditional tooled leather? Of course, we had to put our own DDR spin on it, which became the irresistible element of the Texas Destiny pieces.
