The Shorty Brooke boot wear boots with dresses in lace or eyelet, or with a flutter sleeve. It's fun to wear dresses with one of our silver rock 'n' roll-ish booties. That juxtaposition makes it a little more editorial and a downtown kind of cool. SM: I do a lot of dresses, a lot of midi skirts, with a crop top or something tucked in. Don't worry about the hemline. Today I'm wearing a long skirt with a Shorty boot, but I think it would be super great with a tall-shaft boot, too. LMD: The tall boots are really sexy with a skinny pant or something really short — it's smokin'. It's not our first rodeo. SM: I love our Sita boot with a skinny black jean, a great top, and a blazer. LMD: We launched a boot that says "Yee Haw" on it — the Dana boot — and I think that is so fun for rodeo. For TCU games, we've had people do purple with white stars. SM: This season, we've been working with a lot of snake — python in particular. We have a boot called the Kate that's a rodeo favorite. We did snake piping, which is such a luxe touch. It's in the genes. SM: The women in our family are super-stylish, especially our paternal grandmother, Grammie, who was famous for wearing Ferragamo to cattle works. When inspiration sparks. LMD: In our inaugural collection, we were influenced by West Texas and where we came from — the ranch and the flora and fauna and the stars. We spent a lot of time in Santa Fe growing up — we have two ranches in New Mexico — so artisanal Native American handiwork was important. SM: Our fall collection is very heavy floral, very heavy in exotics. Texture is huge, woven two-tone exotics, metallic python, and signature hand-tied tassels. Talismans. LMD: My husband, Seth, gifted me a vintage sapphire ring when our first child was born, and the sentimentality behind the gesture makes it my favorite possession. Recently I've been wearing a stack of Roxanne Assoulin bracelets personalized with my kids' names, along with a fourth that reads "BABY" in yellow. We are expecting our fourth child and don't know the gender. SM: I wear a small vintage Native American turquoise cuff next to my grandmother's watch every day. It's Navajo, circa 1930. Lizzie brought me a piece of cording that was dipped in the Jordan River after a recent trip to Israel, and I'm never without it tied around my wrist. For earrings, anything and everything Mignonne Gavigan.
