Book Style: LONESOME DOVE by Larry McMurtry
Let’s start with the “Mex Tex” dress for the actual location of the border town from which the novel takes its name. Don’t forget to throw on a suede western style jacket for those chilly nights around the campfire. I added some “Clara” boots for Gus’s one true love, a pair of horse print panties because, uh, horse print panties, and a “Montana” bag for the cowboy’s final destination. I wanted to make sure I included plenty of wooden elements since, as fellow Rioter Nikki reminded me, there’s a pretty important wooden sign that keeps popping up – you’ll just have to rent your pigs elsewhere 😉 So we have the wooden framed sunglasses, a wooden watch, and a wooden phone case. A bit of bling with the newt ring for Call’s potential (and very likely) child; a steer skull necklace because a cattle herd is the whole reason Gus, Call, and the others are trekking north; and those fabulous Winchester stud earrings because every cowboy needs a reliable pistol, especially Call. Drop that sunset-purple cowboy hat on your head and ride off into the actual sunset now. Giddy up.
