Yeehaw for Calico!

Patrick and I just returned from our trip to Portland. I had hoped to blog while away, however I ran into a few hiccups, so now I’m blogging on events much later than I prefer, but better late than never! So before I dive into our travels, or other recent happenings, I must share two more Knott’s Berry Farm posts from our visits before leaving.

Over the summer Knott’s Berry Farm’s Ghost Town celebrated its 75th anniversary. As mentioned previously, normally the buildings within Ghost Town are there just for you to peek in and observe a scene taking place, such as a man getting a shave, or the sheriff in the middle of a card game, but for the anniversary, Knott’s opened up this buildings and the citizens were no longer wooden figures, but real life humans for you to interact with!

This move by Knott’s quickly became the highlight of my summer, and my friends I spent roughly the last two weeks of the event (as it came to a close last Monday, September 5th, and we left for Portland that evening) enjoying it as much as possible. Patrick shot hundreds of photos, and I wore many outfits, but only one day did I get to properly take outfit photos. Which I will share with you today. But stay tuned for another post, which will likely be an open letter to Knott’s Berry Farm, but will contain loads of other photos, including some snaps of me in the various ensembles I wore. But for today I’ll focus on my favorite.

It should be noted I became a deputy, hence the badge you’ll spy in the photos, but I’ll share that story in the next post!

The interior shots here with the red wallpaper is inside Goldie’s Place, which quickly became my favorite go-to place for a rest, along with the sheriff’s. But I honestly wanted to live inside Goldie’s Place, with its amazing wallpaper and fainting couch. I won’t lie, I kind of want to base my dressing room on it, if I ever get one.

Look for another post soon that discussing more on Ghost Town Alive, and sharing loads of photos that Patrick snapped. It was such an amazing experience that I want to share and praise.

  1. Hi, I had inquired about your preferences of stocking styles from yesteryears because I think some would look fantastic with your shoes collection. No comment? Sean

  2. Awesome outfit and shoot location. Your wild west novelty print skirts always make me go weak in the knees. Congrats on making deputy, I look forward to reading more about that adventure.

    Big hugs & happy tail end of summer wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
