I love horses. I started to ride when I was about 14 I have been in love ever since. Now I only ride rarely, but before I snapped off to San Francisco I went to Lea Valley Horse Riding centre once and promised to come back in the fall as it´s quiet near my house. I have been collecting horse related things as well, just to mention few of my favourites, 1940´s ceramic plague of horse doing showjumping I have on my wall, 1950´s white wicker bag in shape of horse head or some novelty printed dresses or skirts. I found this 1950´s fabric at Alameda Antique market in July which is organized every first Sunday of the month. I asked my friend Kiley, who is absolutely a sewing expert, all self-taught to make me simply dress with full skirt. She kindly did and I am really thankful for that as I totally love it! I just embelished it with cute buttons and velvet ribbon and from the rest of the fabric I made matching clutch. I always make matching handbags if I have spare fabric. I love matching.
I am wearing hand made dress from Kiley, bag made by me, 1950´s belt from Relic, shoes from Thriftown and 1950´s charm bracelet.
