Get Rodeo Ready with Kendra Scott's Ranch-Inspired Collection — and Brand-New 'Hat Bar'!

THE 2023 HOUSTON Livestock Show and Rodeo is almost here, and local-fave jewelry designer Kendra Scott is launching her latest capsule collection with rodeo-goers in mind.

The Yellow Rose by Kendra Scott line is available exclusively online and at rodeos state-wide, including the ones in Austin, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. "Inspired by the time spent on our family ranch, this collection honors the state I call home and puts the modern cowgirl front and center — right where she belongs," said the Austin-based designer in a statement.

Incorporating traditional Southwest designs, textures and materials — howdy, turquoise! — the Yellow Rose pieces also seamlessly blend the bright, colorful style and versatility that the brand is known for. For example, two of the brand’s best-selling stones are combined in the Bronze Veined Turquoise Magnesite Red Oyster ring, reminiscent of a Southwestern sunset.

The 56-piece collection includes the all-new Beau suite — featuring a hand-sketched and sculpted silhouette of Scott’s horse, Beau — and heritage Kendra Scott pieces in new vintage gold and silver metals, plus a curated collection of artisan jewelry available exclusively in-person at the Houston Rodeo. Prices range from $60 to $298, with Rodeo-exclusive jewelry ranging from $98 to $5500.

And, in true Kendra Scott fashion, the brand is bringing the customer experience to life with a play on Kendra Scott’s iconic Color Bar: hat customization! Rodeo attendees can personalize GIGI PIP hats with a broad offering of hat bands, pins, feathers and one-of-a-kind adornments. Hats start at $112, with customization accessories ranging from $2 to $48.

'Alma's Rainbow'

THIS WEEKEND, FEB. 3-5, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents Through the Lens of African American Women, a mini-festival of four films and one short, all directed by Black women. The lineup was curated by UH graduate Autumn Johnson, who interned with the MFAH film department last summer and produced the short film This is Real Life, which has earned 70,000 views and counting on YouTube. As Houston is home to such talented Black female film directors as Candice D’Meza, Lisa E. Harris and Brittany Bass, and this being Black History Month, the festival is timely and will resonate with anyone interested in great, independent filmmaking.
