Black is the New Black

Black is classic and always will be. No matter what your age you can pull off a
rocker-inspired look with bold black, but be sure you follow these three tips
and see Cheryl's basic black wardrobe essentials!


1.

SMOKEY EYES, NUDE LIPS

Smokey eyes go great with strong black outfits, but don’t overdo your lips. As a general rule, pick one part of your face to feature.

SHOP THE FASHION TIP:

2.

ADD A POP OF COLOR

Drop a little pop of color to break up the black. It adds a bit of a surprise and somewhere for the eye to go.

SHOP THE FASHION TIP:

3.

MIX IN THE TEXTURE

Be sure to mix in textured fabric like chiffon or velvet along with the leather.

4.

Look to Rock for Inspiration

Joan Jett and Johnny Cash rocked the black. And no matter what your age, you can, too!


CHERYL'S TIPS FOR BASIC
BLACK WARDROBE BUILDERS

A GREAT BLACK BOOT

We have tons of them but I’m feeling our Boogie Boot in black at the moment. It’s a sexy little bootie. For a taller boot, choose the Almost Famous in all black or the Long Tall Sally - both are classic.

A CLASSIC CONCHO BELT

Yes, they are an investment, but trust me, your grandchildren will fight over it. My pick is this vintage slotted concho with a black strap. It is well proportioned and will stand the test of time.

A GOOD BLACK TOPPER

I can’t tell you how many gals have told me they wish they wouldn’t have gotten rid of their boleros. Our Les Gauchos in black is our version of Argentinian classic. It’s a traditional silhouette with a bit of spiciness, and a lot of mood.

A GREAT FITTING PAIR
OF BLACK PANTS

Everybody needs a great black pant that fits well and travels well and one that you can throw in the washer without worrying it will fade. Our Rayado pant and legging do all, plus the spandex adds a little smoothing and shaping right where we need it

Memories of Dad

Our dad, Douglas McMullen, was one of a kind, to say the least. So on this Father's Day, we remember a man who loved family, fast cars, faster horses, a good Harley ride, a mean bowl of chili, telling tall tales, eating jelly from a jar, and Margie's sweet tea. Here's a look back at dad and how he helped us launch Double D Ranch.

Rigging Up
Rigging Up

by Alexis Bloomer June 15, 2019 1 Comment

Dad loved to dress up - or as he called it, "rig up." I think it might have been a lifelong bent because there are photos of him as a kid garbed in a variety of outfits. The best one though, is him posing with his cousins fully “rigged” in a cowboy hat, chaps, and matching vest. That costume made a lasting impression and became de rigueur for the rest of his life.

Like most dads, ours had a vernacular all to his own. These sharp-witted, off-the-cuff, crazy sayings spiced up his everyday conversations. Maybe your dad uses a few of them himself!
