A little bit of QUEEN in all of us!

As time marches on I get more and more excited about my fashion blog!  It has really found its way to fun rural areas of America!  Not only are we blogging about my two loves agriculture and fashion we now have a spot on Rural Route Radio with Trent Loos each Friday ~  Really?  Pinch me ! How fun !  Excited for the opportunities that seem to keep popping up , but enough of that lets talk clothes.

A couple weeks ago after the radio show aired I had one young woman facebook me and ask about Rodeo Queen Fashion.  Now, I was never a rodeo queen but I just love them all , they are all so beautiful and always look so lovely.  The question she posed to me was this, What does a young girl wear to run for rodeo queen in small town rural America?’  So I did some investigating to find out and talked about it today on my radio segment and figured I would visit about it here too!

First of all being a rodeo queen is 90 % self confidence so if you look good in what you are wearing it will shine through!  The most important tips are color and fit of clothes, in style hair, hat shape and makeup.  Monochromatic outfits are good to compete in but if it is not in your budget then it is best to have clothes that fit and compliment you rather than a full matching outfit.

Check out http://www.rodeoroyalty.com/ to check out what other queens are wearing.  Get a feeling for what is in right now.  Big chunky jewelry can really dress up any outfit.  Blue jeans will work , so if you find a cut of jean that fits you well pair with a nice collared shirt and hat and splash that fun jewelry you will be all set.

One tip is that you can find used clothing that might be able to fit what you are looking for.  By doing a search on your computer you might be able to come up with some lovely outfits for minimal cost.  And another thing, there may be a seamstress in your rural community that has a knack for creating some fabulous pieces; it is worth a shot to check it out.

Bottom line you don’t need to spend lots and lots of money~ with a bit of  investigative work on the computer and within your own community you will be able to create something fun and suitable to fit your own unique style !

  1. I never did any queen stuff, but I always love all the crazy clothing they get to where. I always admired the Calgary Stampede Queen and Princesses.
