Alt Country

Alt Country

If I go around telling people I like listening to country music, they look askance. It’s like they think I am watching “Hee Haw.” Or they expect I am listening to old folk tunes on NRP (which is one of those things that seems good for you but is painfully tedious, like eating grape nuts). I am not a tea party member; I do NOT drive a pick up truck; I live in an urban area; I am a Yankee, not a Dixie; my neck is not red. Alt country is more like… really good music that might have some country influences… or blues… or rock… so yeah, I listen to country.

This look seemed appropriate for alt country. I am mixing some ethnic pieces with some country pieces. Start with this cute boho tunic from Anyusha Lilienthal, which is not a typical farm girl’s top but perfect for an alt country boho girl. Pair it with denim shorts from Magen Jigsaw and some thermal stockings from Nena Janus, and this funky look matches the eclectic nature of alt country. A pair of cowgirl boots from Emma Gilmour are no brainers.

Then we have a smooth long haired look from Queue Marlowe in a delicious light brown shade with highlights under a terrific cowgirl hat from Jamie Holmer. Makes sense, no? Especially when worn with this lovely skin from moon Meiyo.

Finally my necklace hails from the land of Afghanistan and is one of the selections at the Afghanistan Museum shop and made by Trill Zapatero. Let me note that these are NOT found in her shop, BoHo HoBo, but in the museum store itself. She has spent a considerable amount of time studying the styles and motifs of Afghani women’s jewelry to make these, and all proceeds benefit Afghani women.
