I do not have a thing for horses.
I have never owned a horse. I do not have a desire to own a horse. Heck, I do not even want to ride a horse. I have nothing against horses. I think they are beautiful majestic creatures, but they are not for me. As a child, I watched my cousin’s pony drag him around the ring. It gave me nightmares for years. So, I do not know why as a grown woman, I cannot resist wearing them on my clothing. If you find out, will you let me know?
Of course, in my favorite fantasy world (AKA my brain), if you slapped a horn on its head…
I would be reduced to a quivering pile of mush. It is all about the accessories…
I purchased this skirt with a horse print on it from a lovely seller on ebay. It was from Anthropologie. The designer was Odille. I believe it was called “Galloping Horses” or “Black Beauty” skirt. It is a burlap material with black tulle underneath. It is used, but in great condition. This skirt frequently sells for a lot of money on ebay, but the seller did not list it with the proper description. She did not put the brand name. She simply listed it as “horse skirt.” I snatched it up, because I had been looking for one at a reasonable price. It is one of my husband’s favorite outfits.
I usually wear it with a black shirt. I looked everywhere. I cannot find my black shirt. And, yes, I only own one. But I cannot find anything in this darn house. “Hoarder,” you say. “La, la, la. I can’t hear you.” No really, I can’t. There is too much crap blocking the sound of your words…
Anyhoo, today I paired it with two different colored tees. The blue one was an Anthropologie sale find from many years ago. The purple shirt is from Free People, called Sheer Rib Top. I made the mistake of sizing up to a large in this. So, it is very roomy. I like the skirt paired with the purple the best. Maybe even more than black?
I wore this shirt on election day. Can you tell which way I voted? Hmmm, well, I’m not tellin’. I simply bought it for the patriotic colors and to wear every four years to the polls. This is not super exciting. Odd. But not exciting.
I thought I was over the horse theme. But then I saw this. White eyelet collar. A white animal frolicking across my chest on a black background. How could I resist? I forgot all about my other equestrian finds when I spotted this shirt in the store. It is sold at Anthropologie and it is called Novelty Collared Tee. They thought of a super exciting name for it. I love it with colored jeans. I love it most with regular jeans. It is simple and sweet. Just like me….ha.
Okay, and now for the finale! I waited for months for this handmade creation to hit sale. It is a splurge. This necklace is so odd, so weird, so different: I knew it had to be mine. It is a beaded horse head. Did you hear me? A beaded horse head! Anthropologie sells it as Beaded Stallion Necklace. (I think they may be all sold out. It might be too much for some people. So, I would keep checking if you want one). It is shiny. It is huge. I feel like a pimp. I love it! I paired it with my Anthropologie Morning Story white dress from a summer sale last year and vintage Frye cowboy boots.
Do you have any animal clothing obsessions? Are you a victim of this horse mania? In case you still have not had enough of the frolicking filly, here is a link from A Beautiful Mess showcasing a fabulous hand-stamped pony dress. Clever girl! Now I want to hand-stamp a gnome dress. What do you think?
