SFF-Katy's Cache Feminine Western Wear-Review!!

Wow, the final day of our Spring Fashion Fling! I can't believe it is already over; I have had a lot of fun with this event :)
For our last feature company, I'd like to take you to Katy's Cache- an etsy shop with the cutest cowgirl clothing I have ever seen! Talk about gorgeous, authentic-looking western wear! I ran across the website several months ago, and fell in love with all the beautiful clothing. You all know I have a weakness for western style, so this was an obvious match. 
First, let me introduce you to the genius behind Katy's Cache...

"My name is Nancy Ruybal ( I will help you out there, it is pronounced rooBELL ) I live in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, amidst tall Saguaros, dramatic landscapes and blazing skies. I have sewn my own clothes since being inspired in high school Home Ec class. As a person who loves the out doors and has spent a good portion of my life working and playing in the desert, I love to make clothes that are comfortable and fashionable. Ranch women are a sort of athlete, typically with strong physics, muscular arms and backs. My clothes are made for such a woman; with plenty of freedom of movement but with a fit that is flattering and a style that says "all Woman". 
My husband, Wes, and I also have a Cowboy band called Katy Creek. We write and perform songs, stories and poems about the Cowboy and Ranching life of the old West as well as the modern day cowboy. 
Many of the outfits you'll see in the shop are just like or inspired by my stage clothes. But I do wear these type of fashions in my everyday life also. Gauchos, Gypsy skirts and light easy tops are fashionable and common place here in the desert for being practical, comfortable and most of all, cool. Jeans are great also, and will be added to my fashion line in the near future.

I look forward to hearing from shop visitors and getting an opportunity to meet your Western Wear Fashion dreams."

Nancy and I discussed the "look" I would like, what type of clothing I typically wear, etc. And, of course, the sizing :) I was anxious to see what Nancy had designed for me, and could not wait to open the package when it came in! In fact, I was in such a hurry that I forgot to take a picture of the lovely packaging :( So, you'll just have to take my word for it-the packaging is very pretty and feminine...just like the clothing! I received a western-type top in a beautiful mint-green swiss dotted material. Absolutely stunning! It is so, so feminine-something that is missing in a lot of the ladies sections in clothing stores! The blouse has lace detailing, and pretty floral buttons. 

So, if you're looking for some beautiful western-themed ladies clothing, be sure to check out Katy's Cache on Etsy!
