I admit this post is really for the Texas ladies, especially those in San Antonio, but I hope the rest of you might enjoy seeing how we prepare for rodeo season in Texas. This is an introduction to the Texas shops inside of Dillard’s, I was invited to the beautiful store at the Shops of La Cantera Mall this week and it was a lesson in Texas Chic Style.. You can tell we had a great time looking at the all that is available in this special area of Dillard’s.
I grew up going to rodeos…who knows how many I have attended in my lifetime, but the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo is one of the best in the world. So, Texas ladies, you need to look your best as well. Lynda Sweet is the shopping specialist for the Texas Shop at La Cantera, and she is ready to be your stylist no matter the western occasion… a Texas wedding, rodeo, Cattle Baron’s Ball…you name it. Yes, we do wear boots and western flair occasionally to weddings in Texas.
There are really two types of Texas Chic style. One is understated elegance with rich leathers, silver, crisp western blouses, and lots of turquoise jewelry. The second level of Texas Chic is all out cowgirl fun….florals, embroidery, color, kimonos, jackets, and big jewelry Both include beautiful bags, hats, and boots, of course. Lynda says the difference between the second style and bohemian style is made in the accessories. Many of the jewelry pieces from the Texas Shop are designed by native Texan Paige Wallace and they are stunning and perfect for any Texas occasion.
Some may think this is over the top…but for a good rodeo moment, or to make an entrance at a Texas event, these items are just perfect and Lynda is ready to help with styling assistance. You have probably figured out by now what a huge fan I am of Dillard’s. The store atmosphere, service with a smile, and exquisite offerings are the reason they have me as a loyal customer. San Antonio cowgirls, head over to the location at La Cantera Mall and they will get you rodeo ready.
KEEP SMILING, Y’ALL!
