Since most of the special items are geared towards women do take your girlfriend along or look for a transferable item if you want to help, too. For those of us with a small budget I found this very affordable (L$ 25 !) set of female and male bangles (Montana Benefit Silver and Onyx Set) from Baubles Boho Jewelry.
The male bangle goes nicely with the Phoebe necklace I blogged yesterday and the female ones make a nice gift. For the photo shoot I dressed up using one of the three free Western Party Packs for Cowboys from the PeppermintBlue Booth.
