In the rest of the states it’s, I’m sure, March as usual. But in Houston it’s Rodeo month/season. The rodeo goes on for three weeks with your usual rodeo calf roping & bull riding but also with concerts (mostly country stars but always a Spring Break pop group for the kids—Jonas Brothers this year) & a midway for indulging all things fried so you can projectile vomit on the carnie ride of your choice later on.
But the other, other activity is getting dressed to the nines as a cowboy and/or girl. While it isn’t any F/W runway show, it is likely to be ten times more entertaining. This was my fourth night in attendance and I’ve pretty much exhausted all things western in my wardrobe. My suede pants have had their 09 wear, back to the closet til next year. So rodeo acceptable it was, wearing a tent dress from a few years ago, belted into a new silhouette and my 2009 cowbell pin.
