The “Bakersfield Sound” is ubiquitous, yet indescribable. You can’t really put it into words, but you know it when you hear it. It’s twangy. It’s honky-tonk. It’s the first generation of country music to be influenced by rock-and-roll. It’s everything Nashville country wasn’t at the time.
This collection isn’t an homage to any one person, or even Bakersfield as a place. It’s a sentiment. It’s an era. It’s a sound. The colors are bright. The silhouettes are daring. The accents are dazzling. Bakersfield is a feel-good collection.

It seems like a cruel joke by the universe that Cinco de Mayo finally falls on Taco Tuesday and many, if not most, of our favorite cantinas and cocinas are still not open for dine-in service. But hey, there’s no reason we can’t live la vida loca! We decided to recreate the unique Mexican restaurant dining experience at home. So bust out the blender, and let’s make the most of it!
We have loved dressing all you Backwoods Barbies in soft country colors and mock-mended denim, but ladies – we’re about to kick it up a notch! Our first Summer 2020 collection is colorful, snazzy, and just plain happy!
