Sistas in the Canyon & Darlings of the Dust Bowl
Posted on 30 April 2010
Patricia Fowler won last weeks tee giveaway when she sent a "thank you" note to her mom showing her love and appreciation for her induction to the West.. Patricia's mom and aunts worked at the Bright Angel Lodge in Grand Canyon, Arizona during the late 1930s as chamber maids and would trek down into the canyon in their dungarees. Â Here are a couple of pictures of Patricia's mom and herÂ aunts. . Interestingly, my research is showing a lot as far as faded denim work-clothes goes.Â Â "Dust Bowl Darlings" is an emerging trend for spring '11. .

makes me want to visit the Grand Canyon this summer ...right after I finish my depression-esque denim group!
