A Very Prairie Stylin’ Birthday to Laura Ingalls Wilder


Today is Laura Ingalls Wilder's, author of the beloved Little House on the Prairie book series, 146th birthday. Here at Glam, we're remembering the woman who first made us see that girls through the ages, from the young ladies of the early America pioneer to today, are really more similar than different with a fashion flashback. Laura wouldn't have been a stranger to ruffled chemises, bell sleeved button up dresses and sturdy leather boots, so we chose designs that have reinterpreted these classic frontier pieces for contemporary times. If you really want to get into the prairie style, you can always rock a bonnet, but we suggest a proper hat Laura may have worn as she got a little older…for practical purposes.
