Parker County Today September 2017 - Page 69

It’s 100 degrees in the shade, we’re all striving to stave off heat stroke, people are golfing at 3:00 a.m. so they can play 18 holes before the thermostat climbs into triple digits. What does it all mean? It’s autumn in Parker County — time to shop for fall fashions. In Parker County, autumn doesn’t mean stocking up on tweeds, cable knit sweaters and Cashmere wraps (although you have to have a few of those pieces for that three weeks of bitter cold and winter we have here just about every year at Stock Show time). Miss Parker County, Amy Garcia slips into fall with fashions with items from Teskey’s SADDLE SHOP and BOUTIQUE that include a Middy sleeveless dress, of a cotton blend in black, white and red, with classic Western yoke, belted with a classic leather Western belt that adds an autumn feel and coordinates perfectly with her black skinny jeans and red leather fringed bootlets. Trading in her pearl pink lip-gloss for lip paint, the color of cherry wine combined with silver bangles, dangling double hooped earrings and a soft leather fringed satchel complete the look. A supple suede black bolero jacket should be kept close, for times when the thermometer plunges down past the 58-degree mark. 67
