Have you ever been to a chic hoedown? Kaelen‘s Fall/Winter 2011 presentation was such an affair, complete with a mechanical bull, whiskey, milking stools and hurricane lamps. Models lounged on vintage sofas and said stools looking like they might make like Old Lady Leary with those lanterns. The clothes, though silky and luxurious, somehow fit right in. The boots, which struck a rugged contrast to the urban styles, helped in that department.
Sadly, no one rode the bull, and there was no two-stepping — a tragic missed opportunity. God knows I would have loved to post photos of both activities performed in 5-inch platforms. I hope you enjoy these just the same.
