Inspired By Doen Summer '17 & Bad Girls
Okay, story time: Bad Girls (a cheesy 1990s movie about cowgirls starring Drew Barrymore, Andie McDowel and Madeline Stowe... watch the trailer here) has been one of my favorite guilty pleasure films since I was about five. My mom and I watched it together countless times through the years... so much so that I answered to the nickname 'Cody' (the main character's moniker) and even made it Lorelai's middle name. It became our movie, inspired Halloween costumes and definitely contributed to my own personal kind of feminism.
When I saw an email from Doen, one of my favorite brands, pop into my inbox touting that the movie inspired their Summer 2017 collection I couldn't have clicked any faster.
via Doen: "Our Summer / Pre-Fall ’17 range takes inspiration from the western prairie and frontier Victoriana in easy neutrals inspired by sunsets, moonlight, and painted desert landscapes. Ruffles, lace, and floral embroidery stand out on simple silhouettes perfect for modern homesteading. Shot in Texas hill country, the collection pays tongue-in-cheek homage to our favorite 1990’s western, Bad Girls - a story of sisterhood that reminds us "It was a dangerous time to be a woman. And a good time to have friends.”
It was nice to get this little reminder of my mom today. I can definitely see the Bad Girls inspiration and am in love with every single piece. Give me all the billowing sleeves, natural fabrics and neutral colors please!
