Frock horror #161: Ride ’em, cowgirl

ugly-wedding-dress.jpgI’ve seen some really rather impressive exmples of 70s-style, hippie chic wedding dresses lately, but you’ve guessed it – this is not one of them. Whatever Martin McCrea was thinking when he designed Style no. 381 – Sonoran Star, I’ve got to admit it’s lost on me, as I don’t associate cowboy hats, white boots or lashings of arm lace with bridal style.

    Lose the veil, and it mightn’t be so bad as a theme wedding piece.

  • While this certainly isn’t the look for me, I do know some people who would totally rock this dress.

    Martin McCrea is a woman designer based in Tucson, AZ. Perhaps you should visit her website to understand the style of clothes she designs. For many women who live in the SouthWest or West, a western theme wedding is not uncommon. Also, if one has an outdoor wedding, the hat could be beneficial to keep the hot sun off ones head. Not everyone is married in a church nowadays. Visit Sheplers, Sat’n Spurs Western Wear, etc. for Western Wedding items.
