Holiday Bandit Playlist

Happy Holidays Bandit Babes! We made a special playlist just for you, filled with 25 songs to keep you rockin’ and rollin’ all holiday season. A Bandit Christmas is a little bit of soul, a little bit of rock, and a whole lotta attitude! We hope you’ll be tapping your toes and shaking your booty just like we will be as we listen to this in the office leading up to Christmas.

BANDIT Babe Braids

Thanks to Pinterest we’ve got some major hair envy happening over here. We’ve gathered our favorite braided looks for inspo we wanna try out asap. The secret beauty of braids, dear Bandits,  is they stay better with dirty hair. Oh yeah. We’re definitely planning on staying cozy with a furry coat, adorned with messy braids and drizzled with rain droplets this Fall..

Rhinestone Cowboy

Meet the man who brought flowing fringe and glittering rhinestones to all of the swooners & crooners of the 60’s and 70’s – Nudie Cohn. His suits have been worn by just about everyone in the Country and Rock n’ Roll world, such as Johnny Cash and John Lennon. He made Bob Dylan’s Mariachi suit, Sonny and Cher’s matching Native American looks, Gram Parsons marijuana leaf treasure, and Elvis’ ever amazing glitzy gold lamé suit! He brought the ultimate Bandit vibes from Nashville to Hollywood. Nowadays, stars like Jack White and Karen O are still rocking these glittering gems! Here’s a look at some of our fave Nudie suits…

Vintage Levi’s Ads

“Anyone can make a pair of blue jeans, but Levi Strauss & Co. made the first blue jean –– in 1873.” Being San Francisco based and lovers of all things western, we’ll just come right out and say it, BANDITS LOVE LEVI’S. Who doesn’t have their favorite distressed, super soft pair of vintage Levi’s to throw on at all times? Here’s a fun fact: Levi’s created the first jean for women, Lady Levi’s, which were born in 1934. Now, we gathered some of our favorite Levi’s Ads throughout the years, including a few gems that were deemed too risqué for the company & were never actually used commercially. Get ready for some booty, Bandits..
