Fashion File: Cowboys and cowgirls looking for flair
WHEN you a sitting in a saddle you want jeans that are comfortable.
But modern day cowboys and cowgirls are also looking for flair with their fashion.
Bling jeans, bright prints on shirts and bling belts and bags are just some of what you will see if you head to any rodeo - and also what you will find when you head into CC's Tack Shak, a local boutique with a country flair.
Christy Jasperson, who owns CC's Tack Shak with husband Cameron, started selling rodeo-style clothing when she could not find what she wanted locally.
First she sold via Facebook and at rodeo events, before opening the Rockhampton store in February.
Christy described the clothing as suited to any western type event for both the cowgirl and boy.
"We put bling belts and CC's jewellery with our outfits to deck them out in today's fashion," Christy said.
Stocking both children and adult fashions, CC's Tack Shak has baby clothing, bling jeans and shirts for kids and a wide variety of shirts and t-shirts for adults, including plus sizes.
They are all designed to offer comfort and a good fit, as well as a bit of sparkle.
"We sell pretty much anything to do with horses, including barrel racing, rodeos, campdrafting, western pleasure and general riding equipment and western clothing and accessories."
