    Hi everyone - I'm a lurker coming out of hiding. :-)

    I did not go to Indio this year, so I feel completely out of the fashion loop. What coat/shirt colors are in and out these days? Any big changes?

    Things change so quickly and I don't want to show up at the next show looking out of place. Thanks!

    Charcoal grey seems to be really in vogue. I have a light charcoal grey jacket made by RJ Classics that I wear with a light blue or light pink shirt.

    GPAs, ATHs, and COs are popular right now. TS, as always, are being seen at the top shows. Custom boots are common, but I love my Konigs that fit like customs at 1/2 the price.

    In Ocala almost every pony rider was wearing light tan jackets

    I think the different-colored stripes on the GPA helmets are going to (well, they are already, somewhat) be big. Also, the nomination bracelets seem to be very in. CK Bradley ribbon belts, from last season are very in too.

    I feel so out of the loop! What are nomination bracelets? I know about the CK Bradley ribbon belts b/c they sell them in a Lilly Pulitzer store here(now I know why- the owner is a big show-er http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif) haha, I'm really bright, lol. oh, I hope the colored stripes on the GPA's aren't here to stay(that's just my opinion though).

    Thanks for the site, RegalBeagle. I don't think that I'll be getting one of those, though. CK Bradley Belts are just expensive belts they sell in Beachy-Stores(If you don't really get that, I don't either) I think that I've made some ribbon belts before just by getting some D-Rings w/ some good ribbon at the craft stores!

    As far as accessories, yes ribbon belts(look at ReagleBeagle's link) are big. I just bought one thats green w/t pink overlay and palm tree designs on it. Everyone seems to have nomination bracelets, and if not those, alot of bling bling jewelry, including the Tiffany's bracelets. Rhinestones on the GPAs are cute too, I saw that in the junior & eq rings. Pony kids braids weren't gigantically huge, and I saw alot in red, white, & blue (both Hogan kids had them if I remember right)
    http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gifCute stuff, I didn't see anything really tacky

    Aack!! I used to have one with the little Izod alligators all around when I was like 6!!! Scary thing is, I used to wear it so much (was a personal FAVE!), my mother probably kept it in a box somewhere to show me later how goofy it was! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif LOL!

    Which came first, the truck or the trailer?

    Yep, another former wearer of the ribbon belts in the 80's. Pink and green Izod, of course!! Can't believe they are coming back . . .
