Western Glam: Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?


     Hey, isn’t there a song by that name?
     Have you ever noticed how a predicted trend just seems to fizzle out or worse yet (sometimes for the better) just never comes to fruition? I’m thinking that’s what happened to the “Western Glam” trend. When I saw this look was coming down the pike, I thought, “uuuuoooohhhh weeee, now I’ve got an excuse to sport all my western gear.” Not that I care if it’s “in” or not, I wear it all the time. Being from Southern Cali, I’m used to a little western vibe that seems to be ever present to some degree or another. Nevertheless, I was sad to see it didn’t become the season hit, I thought it would. If there’s one look that I’ll go a little overboard with, it’s this one. I held myself back this time though. See, no hat.
     Now, back to my original thought. Yes, there was a song by that name by Paula Cole, back in 1996. My how time flies. As for western glam, I’ll be sporting that look on and off. Why? Because I like it. I hope you'll do the same. Wear what YOU want regardless of whether it's a hot trend or not.
