Top It Off, Western Style

Looking for what the Chic-est Cowgirls will be wearing this Rodeo season? My good friend and all-things-rodeo expert, Linda Galayda, has clued me in from her very own sprawling Texas ranch. As Hats are all the fashion buzz this Spring season, it’s no wonder that the big news is all about some extraordinary hats that have been created by Galayda friend and business partner, Michelle Crite. These ladies are accomplished horsewomen and know what really works when adding a stylish completion to your western outfit. Most styles are available at Pinto Ranch on Post Oak, by clicking on to their site, or by calling Linda directly at (903) 478-3641. All designs are available in Felt or Palm Leaf straw. Yes, if you can’t find that perfect style, material or color for you…….custom orders are accepted!
