Feminine but sassy accessories accent anything from jeans to dresses.

Pat Dahnke's cowhide yoke belts stirred up a stampede among shoppers at this spring's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Named by the Houston Chronicle as one fo the top-five picks in their March 9, 2008, rodeo shopping roundup, Pat Dahnke's stunning signature cowhide belts can be paired with matching hats or caps and pendants to create a one-of-a-kind fashion statement.

Dahnke, the twice-named Texas Natural Designer of the Year and Guest Designer for the 2005 Inaugural Ball in Washington, D.C., designs from her ranch northwest of Houston.

The belts-some with ankle-sweeping laser-cut fringe, some with shorter delicate beaded fringe - are Velcro fastened and sport magnetically attached focal points, which range from geckos and 'gators to cheetahs and seashells.

Shown here are the short belt trimmed in Swarovski Austrian crystals, along with the matching 100 percent wool hat and pendant from Dahnke's turquoise-and-espresso Santa Fe Collection.
