For Fashion's Sake
This has been one of the most emotionally challenging years of my life. I have been fortunate to have only suffered two major losses thus far. My grandmother, who was my main caretaker as a child, passed when I was 9 years old. And then a couple summers ago I lost my Golden Retriever Betty who I still cry over to this day. Apart from that, my life has consisted of the same kind of melodrama most white women my age go through. For this part of my life it has been mostly filled with petty worries of becoming middle aged and the same day to day annoyances and frustrations that come with owning a retail business.
So to have almost lost the love of my life this past Spring to heart failure sent me into an emotional tail spin for the rest of 2022. That kind of life changing moment really does put the spotlight on perspective, where nothing and everything seems immensely important.
And because my work life and personal life are intertwined with the horse world, I have not been able to attend the normal amount of horse shows I have done in the past. Spending time at home taking care of my love, and working on building creative content online to support my business off the road has been occupying most of my days.
Which despite the health scares that continued to pop up through out the year, working from home has been totally awesome. I have been doing my best to stay in communication with my tried and true customers, as well as reach out to new ones online. Through it all Equestrian Fashion has remained a constant in my everyday life, and has kept my mind focused on fashion instead of doctors and medications. And the fashion this year has been truly exceptional, so I am thrilled to share these amazing collections with you while attending the Desert International Horse Show, my last show of the year.
Here are just a few of my favorite things from this years Fall Fashion Line Up:
Sandra Fancy Breech and Elenoire Print Show Shirt
The Sandra higher waisted breech has been a best seller for the last few seasons, so the sparkly pocket details are literally just the icing on this cake! Another top seller, the Elenoire Tuxedo Shirt got a makeover of its own, with three different patterned fabrics to choose from.
Cargo Knee Patch Breech and Down Cardigan Jacket
I love love love these cargo breeches, which kind of feel like stretchy jeans, and kind of feel like tights, but really just feel like breeches! And this cardigan/jacket sweater baby is magic.
Ok so anything ivory probably should stay clear of the barn, as ponies should stay clear of your kitchen. But some rules are made to be broken especially when it comes to fashion and horses!
