It’s kind of hard not to stare. For one, Erin Kesselring and Jen White make style look as easy as breathing. White politely rocks out with the help of a well-coiffed pixie ’do, fierce riding boots and bold jewelry that makes a declaration, not some wimpy statement. Kesselring, queen of high-low, vintage-modern and all-things thrift shopping, is fresh in a fitted cardigan, long necklace and Uggs. Add to that their natural environment, Rehoboth’s Downtown Cowgirl, an independent-minded shopper’s dream-come-true. And did we mention, Kesselring makes bangs work? Like we said—hard not to stare. But there’s no outside-looking-in at Downtown Cowgirl. It’s an all-inclusive sisterhood of fashion, affordability, trends and relationships. “It wasn’t so much about having brand names as having cute, fun things that are affordable and unique to the area,” Kesselring says. White’s influence is evident in the treats in the jewelry cases, the stash of Harvey seatbelt bags and pieces that take a risk. Kesselring is alive in the eclectic decor, the clothes that speak to a vintage influence, the thrift-store gems. “The first couple of years, we were together more than we were with our husbands—12 hours a day, six days a week,” Kesselring says. “And at that point, we didn’t have a handle on what the store was going to look like, what costumer we wanted,” White says. But they’ve got it all figured out now—spectacularly. —Amy Kates
