Saturday was a day all about special clothes, but at least in Jefferson City, the unusual outfits weren't just limited to men out in hunting gear for the first day of deer season.

The cowgirl hats and creative Wild West attire at Capitol Plaza Hotel were part of a fundraiser aimed at one thing that was central to having a good night: having the right clothes. A trade show of western and cowgirl themed items aimed to raise money for Dreams to Reality, a local charity that gives lower-income women the right clothes for job interviews.
