I Vote For SweatPants

We’re at that dead part of the season where it’s not consistently sweater weather, but we can’t quite get away with spring stuff — despite what The Gap would have you believe. But in this late-winter sartorial purgatory, there is so much hope for the coming season: the promise that your ankle boots will make a seamless transition to spring; the assurance that you’ll learn to rock an infinity scarf that doesn’t look like a jailhouse noose. Tide the time until you can totally pack winter away during the Zeigfield Follies Fashion and Film Party at the Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd., starting at 5:30 p.m. on Friday. Bring in old clothes for trade, or shop for new togs in a big ol’ market designed to whet your appetite for warmer-weather wear. At 8:30 p.m., the glitzy costume classic Zeigfield Follies screens, followed by a costume dance party. It’ll be most fabulous, darling, and tickets are a steal at $10. Visit thetexastheatre.com.
