Hoople Head

I’ve been watching Deadwood with Beefy. The ladies’ costumes have influenced a few of my outfit choices and I’ve also had a hankering for whiskey. I thought it would be funny if I started calling people “hoople heads,” but no one can quite agree on what it means*.


Vest, Express (thrifted). Dress, thrifted and shortened. Belt, Deena and Ozzy. Booties, Sigerson Morrison for Target. Earrings, Claire’s. Bag, Nicole Lee.

Some say a "hoople head" is an alcoholic. Beefy thinks it's an opium addict. I just thought it was a stupid person.

* I’ve learned my lesson about using unfamiliar insults. When I was young, I called my sister a “dildo” and was absolutely mortified when my mother informed me of the term’s actual meaning. (I guess I thought it was just a variation of “dodo.”)

the bright blue of those shoes is so stunning :) this may or may not sound crazy, but i have a pair of purple boots in my closet, and since i usually wear more muted tones i feel like it really takes a lot of gall to pull off a look wearing them ... but i'm working on it...

I love the contrast of the black lace over the cream dress. Now you've got me wishing that I had some cream clothing to pair with my black lace vest because I totally want to copycat!

That belt is so gorgeous. And the dildo story is priceless, thanks for sharing.

I really love the vest over this, and your peacock belt. You have such great taste, and I don't know if anyone else could pull an amazing outfit like this off.

I loved Deadwood, it's a pity they didn't continue it. I reeeally loved the women's costumes though, oh my goodness. Too bad we can't dress like that without getting funny looks haha...

What an amazing belt! I love the detail on it.

I love Deadwood, and the term "hoople head" always cracks me up. Al seems to use it to refer to the average townspeople who aren't involved in politics, so I took it to mean something along the lines of, "ignorant civilian."

Also, those shoes are amazing!

Your 'dildo' faux pas reminds me of a time my friend who was twelve called out to her Dad "Yo futhermucker, how you doin"?
LEAD BALLOON and I got sent home.

When I was 10 or so I went through a phase where I called my little brother "jackoff" thinking it meant "jerk". My mom never told me what it meant, she just sheepishly asked me to choose a different phrase. =/
