Default Cattle Baron's Ball-San Marcos...Wardrobe?

Hubs and I have been invited to the Cattle Baron's Ball in SM Saturday evening and I was hoping someone on here could give me an idea of the "dress code". I know some big cities go really flashy cowboy wear, but San Marcos, I have not a clue.....
Anyone been there, done that?

What the heck is Texas Chic? Does that mean rhinestones???? or just polished boots?

Believe it or not they even have one (or did) in New Braunfels.

Not too tough a ticket though....they invited me, my brother Darrell & my other brother Darrell to it.

usually good boots, Wranglers with a stone-tight crease and stacked on top of those boots, really fancy Western shirt, nice belt with not too ostentatious buckle
or you can get skirt/top combo to go with the boots...I guess you are female
depends on if jeans are a good fit--cause western jeans leave nothing to the imagination (unfortunately)...

check out one of the nicer western wear shops in Austin, San Antonio area
check out magazine called cowboys and indians (yes, believe it or not)
Cowboys & Indians
this is the fashion link

"Nice" jeans, heels and great jewelry always works. Skirts, "nice" top/t-shirt and great jewelry. Even a denim skirt, tank/dressy casual shirt, great jewelry (think big pieces real or fake-- a big bracelet OR big sparkly earrings OR a big fabulous necklace) and boots and heels works. Just think dressy casual as you would go to a nice Austin dinner (but not formal).

Fueled...
Thanks a bunch! That really helps me put things in perspective. I was thinking 1980's "DALLAS" with JR Ewing and the bunch! This calms me down a little!
Thanks

And BTW, I don't own a cow, but my husbands company is a sponsor so I get to go (yet another excuse for shopping ! I will report back on the level of Baron-ism at this event! I suspect there will be several burger eaters there, old toilets, and maybe even a few cows!

Well, as expected, I worried too much about wardrobe...There was an eclectic mix there with everything from church dress, to cocktail dress, to Sat. night at the country dance bar dress, to khaki and sport shirts, and golfing attire, and everything in between!
I did get a good feel for the "texas chic" image though and there were plenty of polished boots and buckles running around! Lots of rhinestones, but surprisingly not too many cowboy hats except from the hardcore attendees...
Most folks at this event were sponsors and or there companys were, so it was an interesting mix. It was held at Old Town Texas venue which I thought was a great place and the food was great! I ate a venison quesadilla before I know it had venison, and I liked it This was a benefit for the American Cancer Society, so a silent auction and "casino" type atmosphere (where my blackjack skills were questionable )kept everyone entertained along with a good band and some dancing.
So after all the fuss and wondering, it turns out is was just a typical gathering of Texas styled folks and a great time was had by all!
