Turquoise is the diamond of the southwest. It just happens to blend the best of blue with the whimsy of yellow and a touch of green. It’s never stuffy and goes wonderfully with thick, woolly sweaters or on a tanned wrist. It makes even the most worn-out, shabby jeans and white shirt take on a super-duper sparkle. Plus the stone seems to only appear at happy and festive occasions.
It takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21. For deets, check with 2013 Mission Ole Tri-Chair Maggie Kipp.
Once you have a piece of turquoise, your homerun of fashion is made when it comes to fashionable western. Oops, you already knew that.
