Nothing inspires me more than meeting boutique owners or designers who are truly passionate about western fashion. These people are the ones responsible for breathing new life into fashion and pushing the envelope when it comes to how western fashion is perceived. They fearlessly showcase their passions and in turn make us fall in love with this style time and time again. One of these people is Cowgirl Kim. Cowgirl Kim Unique Western Chic has raised the bar when it comes to showcasing styles that are both timeless and high fashion. After seeing her stunning photos on Facebook. I was struck by the almost Vogue quality of her presentation and styling. I just knew I had to feature her here on WG.
Kim kindly shared with me the story of her wonderful online store, her passion for the western style, and who inspires her.
My husband of 25 years and I were having financial issues and concerned about paying our bills and I had very expensive taste in clothes, so I bought a mannequin and dressed her up with my clothes and jewelry and belts and started selling my stuff on eBay. People went nuts! They wanted everything. The entire outfit. I had been a commercial artist before God blessed me with two daughters and once they placed those babies in my arms, I quit work to raise them. This eBay thing was an avenue to express my creative side again. And really it just grew from there and my customers grew and wanted more. Probably my biggest reason for success is the personal service I give each customer from matching things together and taking photos for them and providing measurements. People need help putting something together for a Cattle Barons Ball and they call me. It’s fun and I’ve grown to love these ladies on a real personal level. They share their lives with me. Their problems, their joys, their families and more. It’s a precious thing. I’m a strong Christian woman and I feel God’s right smack in the middle of all this bringing blessings in my life with these ladies and allowing me to love on them as well.
Kim’s personal style..
I’ve always been a non-conformist and dressed a little bit different and more edgy than my friends….and always showing my love for the cowgirl way of life by adding a hat, a pair of boots, a big honkin’ concho belt or turquoise jewelry. It’s all about the attitude when it comes to pullin’ it off!
