Who Knew? Tam’s on the leading edge of fashion

So it turns out the ladytheorist and her sister gave a hot fashion tip to a writer for Lucky Magazine while we were in New York.

My friend Carrie, one of the most urbane people I know was, improbably, raised on a huge working cattle farm somewhere in the middle of Kansas. Now, for many years firmly rooted in NY, she’s shed almost every vestige of her mid-western life (other than her wholesome good looks and iron-clad work ethic). From a recent conversation with her and her sister Tammy about their teenage farm wardrobe, apparently one of the first things to go after they moved away was the regionally ubiquitous Roper boot.

For the record, the ladytheorist also shed the name Tammie along with her Roper boots and her 80s spikey hair.
