Ah the wild wild west. An iconic time period for most people, not just gals into pinup. But lets be honest, pinup girls love a good theme and the Wild West is no exception. So I must admit I was over the moon when I saw Erstwilder was releasing a Wilder West collection full of wonderful goodies designed by the lovely Donna! Now, while I’m sure many people who think of the west think of cowboys and tumble weeds, I always fancied the salon girls in the frilly skirts and sassy outfits so I ask you to step into my Salon, have a drink while I show you my favorite goodies from this newest release!
I had a few stand out favorites for this release and I thought I’d share them with you all, especially as they’ve just dropped not just into the Erstwilder store but also to their stockists! (don’t forget to support the little guys too!). My top favorites were the Luck’s a Fortune Necklace, Ace’s High Brooch and Jake the Snake brooch.
I’m normally not one for statement necklaces but I’ve had a few over the past 12 months that have really caught my eye. The Lucks a Fortune was my favorite piece out of this whole collection because of its simple yet pretty design. I adore the marbled brown of the base and browns are colours I can work in well with my more 40s designs. I also love the pale pink accents, as pink and brown is one of my favorite 40s combos. I know this is a piece I’ll get a lot of wear out of and I’m excited to style it, especially over the winter months.
Being a snake owner, I have a special place in my heart for snake things, which is why Jake the Snake made my list! He’s a bit bolder than I normally like in a brooch but I just adored his little tail. This guy should go well with blacks and maroons too, which I’m totally loving. Excited to style this little hisser in place of my own scale baby!
And my final favorite was the Ace’s High brooch. Despite the fact I only know how to play snap, go fish and Solitaire with a deck of cards, I adore the simple heart and arrow design on it. Its simple, pretty and has a bit of a vintage vibe to its style. I cannot wait to wear it on black to really make it pop and I think this one is probably going to be my most worn out of this collection.
Erstwilder brooches retail for around $34.95 and necklaces at $49.95!
